My QD failure

bike is 03 K1200RS had the recall done about 1.5 years ago. This morning on my way to work I went down in a slow right hand corner, the rear came around on me, nothing hurt bike or me. Picked the bike up and started it and fueling was spraying out the right side.

My guess is the QD failed and sprayed fuel on the rear tire and these are the recalled ones.



It looks like beemerboneyard has the same ones with the plastic inside, what did you guys use for new QD's or can I just use a brass fitting and no QD.
