My FD failed on my '02 1150GS at 41K. Naturally, the warranty was gone so I went to the dealer prepared to fight about having them fix it since it was so close to the end of the warranty period. They replaced it, not questions asked and no cost to me. I now have 61K on the bike (an additional 21K on the new FD) and have had no problems. When my original failed, it just went out without any warning, on the freeway and left me stranded. (not bad though...it was in San Francisco) I have always performed the regular maintenance and it still went out without pre-warning..I voted already..but would vote again too in order to get the #s up.
