Welcome and nice score.
My '95 1100GS had the same ignition wire problem.
I made an alluminum brace to support it and make the bend in the wires a larger radius so it wouldn't happen again.

It looks like BMW hadn't changed the housing too much between 2008 and 2012. The HID I removed from my 2012 GSA was first in my
