    2013 K1600GTL Fuel leak
    « on: 2017-09-20 01:22:24 »
    I've read the postings regarding the recall for K16000s manufactured prior to and including April 2011. A little background first. I've a friend who has a 2012 with a manufacture date of 12/2011. He has experienced the problem with the cracks in the mount. I have a 2013.

    Has anyone experienced on a 2013, a leak at the fuel pump connection similar to that described in the recall?

      hi you did not say what mount
      the only problems I have seen are the o ring  into the pump assembly that can weep some times
      or the fixing studs on top of the fuel tank where the tank cover is fixed this has been known  to spin if the screw has jammed in the fixing if this is the case tank replacement (eBay used) 
      other than that not a lot of problems with the fuel side
      I have had 5 k1600 so far and by next year will be on my 6th

        I have a GT with manufacture date of Feb 2011 and never had any fuel issues.
        Nevertheless the ring on the pump assembly (as mentioned  by was replaced for free during a service (years ago; don't even remember when). There has been no recall over here for this.
