What failed?

Mine has a failed right "ear" (that mates to the right/upper support donut) - the previous owner said it started leaking after a crash. He epoxied it and removed the mount from the bike to not put any further pressure on it. I went further and shimmed/padded the frame backbone to use the tank's saddle hump to further distribute the load. It seems to be a premanent fix - no problems in many thousands of miles.
