the plastic electric fuel pump has developed cracks around a high pressure output fitting that carries fuel to the fuel injection system. it is possible to smell gas fumes around this area of the vehicle. there are stains on the pump that confirms the fuel leak. this leaky fitting is located within two inches of various electrical connectors used for engine management functions (fuel level, etc). all it takes is for a spark from these connectors to ignite gas fumes from the leaky connector to cause a vehicle fire. this is a fire hazard that could endanger the life of the driver as well as the vehicle itself. most motorcycles are stored in closed garages and there is the potential of a fire, property loss or loss of life or an explosion if a motorcycle with this defect is parked nearby a gas water heater. *tr

side stand interlock switch failure on a 2009 bmw r1200rt motorcycle. the switch is designed to prevent the motorcycle from being driven with the side stand in the down position. the switch on my machine failed with the side stand in the up position and the motorcycle being driven down the road at approximately 40 mph. when the switch failed the motor stopped running, which caused the rear wheel to skid. i was able to pull in the clutch to get out of the rear wheel skid and steer the machine off the road. i was able to by-pass the interlock switch in order to start the machine and ride it home. the only repair would be the replacement of the switch. the problem i have is that once the machine is in gear and moving down the road the failure of this switch should not cause the motor of the motorcycle to stop unexpectedly. the loss of engine power could lead to injury or death. if the switch fails while the machine is being driven down the road it needs to alert the rider of a fault but not stop the motor. if this had happened to me at 60 mph i might not have been able to file this report. *tr
