Those cracks look scary.
Shouldn''t this be a BMW Recall item or maybe notify the NHTSA?
How can BMW design such great bikes to ride and mess up on the small parts that could be very dangerous if they fail.
Had to change my 1150 disconnects just so I could take them apart without breaking but read where some failed in use.
The 1200's look like the whole plastic plate could fail with massive fuel spillage and possible fire.
Looks like a good fix but BMW should furnish a set to every owner.
Thanks for your posts, refer to them and your DVD often.
