Quick disconnect for fuel line on fuel injected bike?
 
I am looking at moving from my R100GS to a new R1200GS. Currently we use an MSR Dragonfly multi-fuel stove that we use gasoline in. I've got a quick disconnect on the old airhead for filling the stove.

Is it possible to have a quick disconnect installed on the new, fuel injected bike?

Yes, quick disconnects work w/ fuel injected bikes. The 1150 ADV comes with factory installed quick disconnects, so the 1200 GS will probably come with them too. I have installed QD's on my R1100 GS and they work fine.

The problem with injected bike quick disconnets is that they seal on both ends when disconnected. The gas in the line is a t quite a high pressure and poses a signicant risk when sprayed out. THis is why they are going to quick disconnects since taking a tank off requires depressuring the fuel lines before removal.
No smoking please...

A small siphon would be much safer.

This is true!!! I forgot to mention that the quick disconnects I use automatically seal when disconnected. I then have a hose (with appropriate connector)which I can connect to the return line to drain fuel when needed.
