I remember reading some posting here and there about the QD problem but really never really paid much attention to it because I thought it to be just some isolated problem.
Now that the warm season is starting I'm curios to know a little more about the QD failure.
Is this a common problem with the KRS/GT? .. and if so, why isn't BMW issuing a recall to replace the QD? After all, if I understand correctly it is a fuel related problem, and these parts should be bullet proof.
Anyway, does anyone has a picture, or perhaps direct me to a link where I can see where this QD is located? Should the QD be replaced with a better quality one, even if it isn't broken yet?
Sorry for my ignorance but I only own the GT for few moths and still don't know much about the bike. I had a KRS prior to this bike but I also keep it for very short time. I now intend to keep the GT and I'm getting ready for some long rides, so anything I can learn to prevent failures will be very helpful.
Thanks you for any suggestion.
