Yes, the front brakes failed on my 08 in 2011. The front steel break pipe fails on the flange fitting from over tightening. At the time my dealer told me mine was the first ever failure in Australia - yeah right you buggers.

It was scary event finding no front brakes on the freeway at 100km/hr.

They did a good job at fixing it though. New wiring harness because brake fluid had melted the glue in the old one, also a new frame piece, brake pipe, can't remember the rest. I was happy with the repaired bike and surprised how much trouble they went to.
