These flanges have been cracking on the GS/GSA bikes for years. Either the bolts are criminally overtightened, as BMW insists, or the flange is poorly designed. Think of the squealing at BMW HQ when...

Marc,

1. The low fuel alarm is essentially useless with the HPN tank unless you are willing to modify it. Many simply tie it up to disable it.

All of the aftermarket companies, like Galfer and Braking, make them. Most of the r1200's use the same 305 mm rotor, so a used one should be easy to come by, too.
