Just out of curiosity, why did BMW use a filler cap that requires a special tool? Is there an explanation, or is it just another one of those odd Beemer things.

You absolutely could use a heli-coil. But if you're even moderately handy, installation of a heli-coil isn't hard and cen be tackled by a home mechanic. If you're not handy, have a shop do it.

It's funny that you mentioned this. I had been having problems with my front brakes dragging. I chalked it up to needing to rebuild the calipers. Perhaps my brake lines are starting to let go.

1150gs high idle after tank installation

So I took the tank of my 1150gs off to get to the battery. Put it back on, now my idle is 3000. Throttle cables are routed and seated correctly. Can swapping the fuel lines cause this?
