Question about 2005 BMW R 1200 GS
Apparently the plastic female part of the fuel line disconnect is subject to cracking. How do you repair this?

You need to remove both side panels of the bodywork. there are quick disconnects on both fuel lines on the RHS of the machine. These are easily visible once the bodywork is removed. Then remove the glove box from the tank and remove the tank retaining bolt on the RHS of the bike. Disconnect both fuel lines and the electrical connector, and lift the tank off the bike. You will then have easy access to the fuel lines and clamps etc. Since you don't say why you want to replace the fuel lines, it may just be a leak at the quick disconnect which can be fixed with a new O ring.

Try cleaning the plugs first would be my suggestion, if that doesn't do it you may have air getting into the lines or a vacuum leak somewhere. Also it would be a good idea if you can't find it to have the BMW cycle dealer scan the system for fault codes.

If necessary, keep the left tank opening closed and feed an extraction hose through the right service opening to the left tank half and drain the fuel out of the left tank area before proceeding.
