My brand new '13 F700GS tank cracked on both sides within 2 weeks of purchase and after just 2 tanks of gas.... I'm pretty disappointed. More disappointed that I spent all this money on something that's been known bad for 2-3 years and with no signs of a permanent fix. So now, I have to live with the prospect that after my warranty period I'll have a cracked tank for the rest of it's life! I'm not too happy about it right now.... I'll keep my fingers crossed that something changes in the coming year.
But given how quickly my brand new bike developed issues, I sure do wonder!
