I am aware of the issues concerning the OEM quick disconnects. I replaced the plastic OEMs with metal quick disconnects and replaced all crimp connectors on my last three BMWs. Recently I acquired a 2003 K1200GT (31K) which has the OEM quick disconnects. The new metal quick disconnects are here on my workbench. However, I will not have time to put then on until January, 12 because I will be out of town. The possibility of a leak while I'm away concerns me.
My question: How much fuel will escape if one of the quick disconnects were to spring a leak while I'm away? My reasoning suggests that it would only leak until the pressure in the lines is exhausted which would be a minimal amount of fuel and not a major safety concern.

Thanks in advance for your input.

You usually break them when they are disconnected and reconnected or possibly due to engine vibration, neither of which will be happening while you're away I hope. Just sitting there if they're not leaking now I wouldn't be concerned.
