I wonder if these issues have been positively addressed in the 2013 models?
My F800GS and my wife's F650GS twin are still on their original fuel injectors and wheel bearings, front and back... We have almost 80,000 kms on each bike, the 650 being a 2008, and the 800 is from '09.

"The motorcycle, being poorly designed for both flight and marine operation, sustained significant external and internal damage," police noted.
