Most of the members bought their chrome-plated brass QD's from here:http://www.omega.com/
Phone# 1-800-622-2378, ask for "Steve @ ext.2520, or plug in the part number in the "search".

You can also order on-line, to make 1 complete QD, order: 1) FT-LCD170-05-FKM (female end) list$ 26.00 and 1) FT-LCD220-05-FKM (male end) list $16.00. The suffix "FKM" is generic for Viton o-rings.
This makes one complete QD.
You should replace both plastic QDs.

They are now available from A&S BMW and other fine dealers. Although they are not selling chrome-plated brass QDs.




I used "Simple Green" with a scrub brush to get most of the gas stain off. I wish I knew of a way to remove all of the stain.

when fuel leaked on my valve cover i tried everything to get it off with no luck, when i took the bike in for service they replaced the valve cover under warrenty and the tech told me nothing would get the stain out.
