Question Question about fuel QD

The bike is a K1200S.
So I take it in for the recalls, one is the fuel pump flange thing. Mine was replaced, but I noticed poor MPGs and a faint oder of gas.
Yes I know what that means. I ordered the fittings from Beemerboneyard.
My question is, the pump side is a new fitting, should I leave it in and just use the new fitting on the hose?

Re: Question about fuel QD

Could just be a nicked o-ring on the male side (there isn't one on the female side). Would try that first. I had the flange recall on my K1300GT and no issues.

Re: Question about fuel QD

Not the O ring.
I really wish the service canter had taken 2 minuets and called me and offered to install the metal QDs while they were there.
