    No. Mine was considered "within specs".
    They put the reinforcement ring.

    If you can park it, and not turn around to admire it before walking away, you bought the wrong one.

    I got letters for both of our RTs (2007,2008) last week.The last time I had the tupperware off on mine (2008) before I put it away for the winter I saw no indication of any issue but will schedule this in along with new tires this spring. I have not checked my wife's (2007) recently but am getting the brake fluid service completed along with new tires this spring so will address then.

    How hard is it to check this out myself. Is there a way to see it without total disassembly? I have an 2008 GSA.

    On my RT, all I had to do was to remove my left side panel (4 screws)
    I don't know with the GSA, but it should not be that complicated.

    The left badged cover comes off to expose the pump assy, the connector and the flange are visible. On the GSA , there is another assy and a fitting on the right side as well, I am assuming they will look at both on the GSA's.

    Thanks for that, I am hoping to see for myself what this problem looks like.

    The NHSTA site shows my '08 r1200r being in the VIN range of the recall.
    I am not the original owner, so I contacted BMWNA and gave them my contact information.
    As of today, I have not gotten any correspondence.
    Anyone else?

    Called local BMW dealer and they ran my VIN #. Said it was on recall list and I have an appointment for a week from today. Also ordered metal quick disconnects from BeemerBoneyard and the dealer said they will install them when they do the recall.

    leak '07RT

    Just replaced the fuel pump controller, used Haynes manual to troubleshoot for pump failure (it was good), filter etc, used info on this forum re the fpc, it had died. Bike started & ran great, then filled up and gas leaking down left side. Pulled off left panel, re tightened the metal retaining ring, leak slowed dramatically but its weeping from the tab on white collar fitting the fuel pump assy sits down in. Parts fiche lists this as a supporting ring 161 411 82 903. Anyone have same experience? P.S. Po'd 'cause can't ride & it's spring time.

    Checked with dealer here, said sounds like the flange is cracked & is covered under the recall; just have to wait three weeks to get in for check up and repairs. Better than being told, 'we've never heard of that before...'
