I wonder if these issues have been positively addressed in the 2013 models?
1) No clue on the fuel injectors/fuel pump ... I wish I did know more there ...

2) I am 99% sure that the rear hub problem was ONLY on the spoked rims (so F658GS and F700GS) unaffected.
It is also my understanding that the tolerance problem has been resolved, but I could be wrong on that ...
