Has taken a while for the FED's to get on this. This recall was done on many bikes a few years ago. I don't like the idea of a reinforcing ring which was used in some cases. The plastic female interface of the fuel pump can easily be split by threading in the coupling fitting. To seal either teflon tape or suitable fuel proof thread compound is needed. This stuff is so slick it is easy to drive in the fitting too deep and split the cast in female flange. I've run into this at work in the past and was well aware of the problem the first time I looked at the fuel pump assembly. To add to the problem, many were breaking off the male portion of the snap together assembly. Many threads commented on the need to replace the quick connect. If only the hose side with the male portion that tended to break was replaced all was good. People that replaced both sides played with fire. (so to speak).

I believe that they have been doing a “quiet” replacement for more than a few years. In March, I purchased a 2007 K1200S from a private party. As part of my due diligence, I inquired of the local dealer the status on recalls and service. Everything was up to date, but what caught my attention was this mention : fuel pump assembly and flange were replaced at mfgr expense in 2015.
