Not sure if this has been posted before but I was just looking at the most recent recall from Ford and saw this tidbit. LINKY Safety Agency Investigating Fuel Leaks in BMW Motorcycles <address class="byline author vcard">By CHRISTOPHER JENSEN</address> The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is investigating whether it needs to recall about 24,000 BMW motorcycles because of possible fuel leaks. A report posted on the agency Web site identifies the models as the 2005-8 R Series. The agency says it decided to investigate after receiving 28 complaints and seeing additional reports on Internet forums of cracks in the fuel-pump housing. There was no mention of fires or accidents. One owner, who complained to the safety agency in September, said that when he arrived at his destination he noticed a strong smell of gasoline and my left pant leg with soaked in fuel. He found a leak in the fuel-pump housing in close proximity to the vehicles left exhaust pipe and ignition.
