Defective Key Ring Sensor..Check EWS?

I ride a 2007 K1200GT and had the Key Ring Sensor fail in 2012 while on a trip leaving an immobile bike. The dealer told me it was a recall only if my bike was under warranty. Amazingly poor support by BMW to leave us riders with a chance of an immobile bike!

My friend has a 2010 K1300S that is out of warranty. The Key Ring Sensor has not failed and has not been replaced.

Is the K1300S of 2010 a year still vulnerable to failure or did BMW get on top of the problem by then??

Should he replace it just to be sure?

Your advice appreciated.
