Another example of why this forum is so great

Jim, you are truly a prince among the inmates!
This is just what I needed to give me the courage to make what is now obviously the appropriate repair. My clamps are in the mail; I'll order the QDs now, too.
Thanks,
-ceej

What he said, .

As always Jim, thank you for taking the time to share, I have bookmark the thread. For our prep for S.A. this fall, someone suggested that I do this mod.

I feel I can tackle it no problem.

Thanks again

I read this on another site and have to say You the MAN JVB

Seems like a cost cutting thing from BMW (It will make it out of warranty, and save the mothership $$$)

Glad there are some who identify the issue and find a cure, again to JVB

I would love to take credit, but that comes from another inmate. I am just an installer.

Fortunately BMW now installs a colar from the factory.

Really a great pictorial instruction set, thanks for taking the time to make and share this stuff.

Is it correct to say that your bike is an early model 2005 that required the ADV kit with two 90 degree QD's?
Mine was built in Nov 04 I'll have to check under the fairings.

I do hate it though when I run across a pricey upgrade that you almost can't live without, but at the same time it isn't anything that I can see or admire when the work is done.

Thanks,

You will definitely have the two 90 degree male QDs. That said, you can opt just to put the clamps on, and keep the old plastic QDs. You will almost certainly have cracks, and will some day develop a leak because of them. The 05-06 models are at higher risk because the tank needs to come off to do the brake flush.

I see little sense in trying to save a buck here, the flange could leak without the new clamping collars fitted but a broken QD turns me into an instant pedestrian.

Probably a 502 - or is that a 205?

I know search is my friend, but I can't figure out how to input a search term that doesn't return just shy of a zillion posts. So, having no time to read for 78 hours straight, I'll just ask the question.

What years and models does the cracking - and this repair - apply to?

Thanks!

Another thanks for this thread. Clamps and new metal quick connects fitted yesterday.
What would we do without ADVRider and the great community here.
