fuel line quick disconnect
It was a good thing I played preppie last night. I need to go to the book store and decided to take the bike, so I just put on a pair of shoes (was already dressed). I soon felt a spay on my right ankle like the road was wet. I stopped to check it out, and found that it was gas.
Upon retuning home I removed the tupperware and found a spary of gas coming from the fuel line quick disconnect. When I touched the assemble it broke in two.
The gods were smiling on me ,in that I was able to find the part even though there is not BMW dealer within 100 miles. I should have the bike up and running tonight.
My questions has anyone ever heard or seen of this problem? If so is it just a fluke or is it more then meets the eye? I am not sure exactly what this assemlby does but will assume by the name it is use to disconnect the fuel line coming from the tank to the engine.
