Another fuel line QD failure...
Well it happened to me this weekend and thanks to this forum I was prepared. Lazy but prepared.
I purchased QDs from Omega and hadn't gotten around to installing them yet [couple of months] but had them in my tankbag. A fellow rider noticed stains on my bike before a ride Sunday, but I disregarded it as a messy, recent oil change.
After a 150 mile ride, while stopped at a light, I noticed a spewing fountain to the right. I was on my way to a local BMW club meeting which was about 4 miles away, so I pressed on with some worry.
After the meeting, swapped out the offending QD and things were fine again. Thanks to this forum for the heads up. 2002 K1200RS with 41K miles. One final note, fuel mileage suffers greatly when spraying fuel into the atmosphere. I used well more than 1/2 a tank to ride 65 miles since my last fill up and noticing the geyser.
