QD's BMW part number

My BMW dealer in New Zealand found these for me. The part numbers are as follows
QD male only 13537700800
Clamp 16121176918
Kind of takes all the worry out of fitting after market bits if you are not sure what O rings and seal are being used. Naturally it fitted up perfectly to the female part. BTW, could not find any after market stuff down here anyway, and importing Omega from the states was dearer than the BMW item here.

The parts distributed by Omega are from the same manufacturer (Colder Products) as the BMW plastic items and the plastic/metal QD's are interchangeable.

You may not know if BMW are supplying theirs with the Viton O rings, but you do when you order from Omega. That's the important common factor, whether it's a plastic or metal QD you have.

The switch from plastic to metal was an initiative started on this and another site. As far as I know, we were the first to discuss the problem and come up with a solution to avoid becoming a roman candle. QD's is one area where you will do better reading the past posts than rely on a BMW dealership. I still don't think BMW have ever acknowledged a problem with plastic QD's although I suspect pressure from riders may be pushing them to stock metal. I bet you don't take a bike in for service with plastic and it comes back with metal QD's though.

Personally I would change both for metal and be sure they had Viton O rings.

Vosmagna, you are an amazing source of information. I blew it on this, my first thread, and lodged another, stating that the QD's were indeed of metal from BMW. The cost of importing from the States is often expensive and the fact that these items are from BMW gives [I hope] some confidence. Then again, the plastic OEM items certainly don't do that! I have not seen any mention of BMW metal QD's on this site and thought the community may have been interested to learn about them. I have followed this site for sometime now and you and several others continue to supply a wealth of knowledge to our benefit. Both my male QD's are in metal.

For the K1200RS/K1200GT, these are the metal parts (and should link to the Omega parts page).

FT-LCD220-05-FKM and FT-LCD170-05-FKM

Get the FKM ones, as that's the better "O" ring (aka "Viton®"). FKM is the generic name for Viton and hence the lable which allows Omega to get the "viton" rings from any source other than DuPont (who "owns" the Viton name).

For the newer K bikes, they're using the same brand, but the fuel hose diameter is different.
