....Went to start mine this winter and I noticed fuel under the bike, pulled the side covers and I've got cracks.

1200GS Fuel Pump Flange

I just replaced my GS tank with a GSA tank last year on my 09. The fuel pump flange is now excess. I used the pump and pump controller as they are the same between the GS and GSA but the flange isn't the same. There are a lot of people on the forum who have also made the change. This may be a source for the flange.

I'm happy. Based on this thread I looked at the fuel pump housing. '05 R1200GS, 158K miles. No cracks! I wonder what makes some crack, and others not. I hope mine doesn't start cracking now that I said it.

Some creative guys on the R1200R board came up with a fix - and if you go to the end of the thread it shows a pic of the latest style from BMW which now feature a metal ring from the factory

Dang, that is what I figured would happen -- BMW would put out a better part and I'd miss out. I just got mine replaced but it does not have the ring.

If you read my earlier post I state that my dealer told me I had gotten the very last replacement part in-country, perhaps the new shipment will consist of this better replacement part.

I just had my pump replaced today for a dead regulator. In addition to the regulator, it has developed two cracks in the plastic flange as seen in others' pics in this thread. I saw a picture of the new pump with improved metal ring on the flange but was told it was off a 2013 model bike. I thought there would be no way I would see the new design on my replacement pump but low and behold, it is not a myth!

Well, I do get the 2 year warranty on my old style replacement.

I'm almost hoping the replacement develops cracks just to get upgraded to the new improved part on BMW's dime.

Hey Guys,
Mike From Beemerboneyard here. We just received our first shipment of the fuel pump flange repair clamps from Tim (from the bmwsporttouring.com forum). We are selling them for $32.95 (SORRY, Tim did not price them originally to make money really but we are a business so......) and can ship them in the US for $3 for USPS first class mail. You can order yours from this link:
http://www.beemerboneyard.com/rk12fuelpmpclmp.html
These work especially well if you have cracks but not a leak yet or if you want to prevent cracks from starting. They also will work if you have a leak but you'll need to remove the plastic female fitting and use JB weld on the threads and then reinstall the female fitting (or better yet install a new metal fitting from us: http://www.beemerboneyard.com/cpcqkdcfemaleth.html )
Thanks!
Mike

After the wife reported smelling a distinct wiff of gas the last couple of evenings, I went out to check the gas cap and the flange. Can't tell if the gas cap was not closed all the way, but I've certainly got several cracks like others in the thread.

There's no overt signs of leaks from the flange (i.e. no discoloration in the dust)... will the BeemerBoneyard clamp help?

I assume the BBY clamp will help. Thinking of ordering it to install on my recently replaced Fuel Pump Flange.

I don't think the clamp has enough hours to be a proven fix yet but I purchased one for a buddy the first chance I got (not to rub it in but I have the new pump). It operates under the same principle as the metal ring on the new BMW pump design and should work. Now is the perfect time for you to install one... BEFORE a leak starts.
