I ordered the kit and two flange clamps and got around to replacing the QD's last week, the stock tank and pump flanges looked good still no visible cracks, one of the stock plastic male QD fittings fell apart though when I disconnected it, the guts, spring and everything, the OEM plastic fittings appear to be a major Achilles heel, I've owned the bike since new and have around 100K miles on it and had heard about people becoming stranded but never got serious about remedying the problem until running across this thread, membership has its privileges.

Jim was correct in that my 2005 takes the 90 degree QD's on both sides.
