I've asked my dealer about the upgraded BMW part but he's unaware of one.

I may have read that it's expensive...it may come paired with the fuel pump and not just the cap?

Costly, difficult to change for a home user without the special tool, unneeded with the BBY fix, just to name a few.

Shout out to Victory BMW in Chandler for making it happen.

They replaced mine too, but it was under an aftermarket warranty by then. They threw that warranty in when I bought the bike there, so I was pretty sure they'd make sure the repair was covered. Turned out they didn't have the part in stock, so I had to hang out there while Charlie drove to GoAZ to pick up the part and then install it on my bike.

The parts are expensive but it's easy to change with a lock ring tool. For example, this one .

$28 for a single use tool? And, hundreds for the part, instead of $40 for the fix? Seems like a waste to me.

There are a number of different manufacturers that offer similar tools so, the price can be lower. I was illustrating an option for someone who would prefer to make the repair as the dealer would.

I wonder what this means?? I just heard on the radio that BIg Brother is investigating gas leaks on BMW motorcycles. I feel much better knowing that.

Flange Cracks

Read this thread so just for the heck of it thought i would check mine. 2010 GSA with 20,000 miles and have cracks on both left and right flanges. The right one is the worst. One large crack which has evidently been seeping as the top of the flange assy was covered in sticky almost varnish like substance. Have ordered the BBY clamps until i can get it to the dealer. Thanks to all on this forum for the heads up on this as who knows how much longer it would have been to total failure

Well that's disappointing news...I was under the impression that this issue was resolved with the new part from 2009 or so...

I assume you are out of warranty?

My understanding is, and I'm no expert, that the problem was resolved in the 2012 model year. Hopefully, Jim Von Baden or Anton will check in.
