That sort of stuff.
I agree, I am quite happy that BMW has "approved" 15W-50 oil ...
But with with 30K miles on my bike and hoping to put another 20K on it this coming year I am indeed more worried about the stator, gas tank, and am also a bit pissed off about my headlight reflector turning black.... (using only OEM/OEM equal bulbs)

Maybe I'm just lucky, but I've had no fuel system issues ...
but I may start packing one of the $50 USD fuel pumps in my tool kit............
