I have an '06 S1000, bought two years ago, with embarrassingly low miles on it. The bike has always been stored indoors, in an unheated space, and was never left outside to bake in the sun.
A few months ago, I discovered a blister about 1.25" across. Took it to the dealer, who took pictures of it to send to DNA, so they could get a replacement approved. Other than the blister, I didn't see any deforming of the tank, and the tank was tight on the chasis.
DNA approved replacement of the tank pretty quickly, and I returned to the dealer once the new tank got in, maybe three weeks later. But in that short time, only a few weeks later, the tank had gotten extremely loose on the chasis. But I still didn't notice any deforming of the tank itself. Anyway, the tank was replaced, and so far, all is good.
Does anyone know if the replacement tanks are any different than the original ones? I'm sort of curious if through time, we can expect to go through this all over again.
