I subscribe to the NHTSA recall notices for motorcycles. Hadn't seen anything yet on the fuel strips or fuel-pump leaks, so did some digging:
It gives a name of an investigator, and states that they've received video of the leak occurring. I rather suspect BMW will be called to task on this (or do a voluntary recall.) Note that there are 80 reports of failures from owners, and 15 from BMW. I rather suspect the 80 reports from owners is what finally got NHTSA's attention. People who haven't reported a fuel strip failure might consider doing so - there are some specific instructions on how to do it (so the NHTSA knows to gather all the complaints into one big complaint) in the Fuel Trip Poll thread.
Just a FWIW - the wheels turn slowly, but correctly applied - they DO turn.
