I'm sure you are correct. I posted this on another site as well, looking for some answers. Seems this idea falls into the DS category. But, when you know someone who was affected by this (Randy Prade) was sidelined on his long Alaska ++ trip with this happening, it takes a bit of wind out of your sails about long distance trips.
I'm guessing this latest issue is a quality control one and percentages are probably very, very low, until it happens to you. But, if this ring has been around since the CAN-bus e.g. R1200GS first, seems as of late is the only issues. Don't remember reading about it on the ADVRIDER forum on the 1st models. But, I could be wrong also.
