Quick Disconnects

I have a '00 LT and on the way home from work today, I smelled gas, hoping that it was coming from a vehicle in front of me. When I finally stopped at a stop sign, to my dismay, there was gas dripping from the bottom of the fairing, Needless to say, my plastic qd's failed, one was broken and squirting gas after I removed the fairing. Question, what are the best replacement parts availible? Beemer boneyard or BMW OEM parts? Thanks in advance, Steve Miller

I just installed these on my LT. I haven't ridden much with them yet, but they look to be well made and they look sharp as well. I installed the straight versions and they fit fine. The only hard part was getting the originals off. I succeeded without breaking the plastic parts, but it was a chore and rough on the fingers and fingernails!

Re: Quick Disconnects

I just put the beemerboneyard ones on mine. One original broke just as soon as I pulled on the line to take it off. (whew) Managed to save the other as an extra to carry in case I find someone on the road needing one to get home. I try to be a good Samaritan when I can.

Re: Quick Disconnects

Good idea. I still have the original (unbroken) ones after installing the beemer boneyard ones.
