Fuel pump assembly flange tool

The back story: A few weeks ago the fuel strip in my ‘07 GT failed. I let it go because the bike isn’t going any further than 100 miles or so until summer. Then I decide to go ahead with the replacement and that was done on March 28th at my local BMW shop as a warranty job. On the 30th I walk into my garage and it smells like I have an open container of gas in there. No puddle of gas, but since the fuel strip was the last thing done that’s gotta’ be it; the smell is especially strong just above the tank filler. I pull the body panels, raise the tank and and using long-nosed pliers I run a paper towel around the wet look at the pump flange. Looking in again with a flashlight I can see gas ever so slowly seeping from the bottom of the flange. The BMW tech says it sounds like he pinched the o-ring when reinstalling the assembly and to bring it back for him to fix ... on April 10th. I’m OK with this because I have my RT to ride in the meantime. I asked the tech if it was something I could do and he told me I need a special tool to remove the flange. I’ll let them do the repair, and I’ll ask if the dozen o-rings I have for a Ducati ST3 I had are the same ones. My ‘07 GT has another year on the recall if this fuel strip fails. So after all that my question: what is the special fuel pump assembly flange tool? I may as well have one, or the same in non-BMW make.

Re: Fuel pump assembly flange tool

It is not really an o-ring but a gasket and here is the tool.

Next time you fuel strip goes out just zap your old fuel strip with a piezo BBQ lighter and it will "weld" the broken substrate in the sensor. I have done it on GS's and RT's for several bikes. It may only last a year or so but you can repeat it as often as you want. Just hook up to the two center pins in the four pin connector on the fuel flange and zap away. No you will not blow up the bike.

Re: Fuel pump assembly flange tool

That's goodbye info, thanks. Question: The photo is a spare assembly for my '06 RT. Will it also fit my '07 GT?

Re: Fuel pump assembly flange tool

Compare part numbers on this site to see if they are the same for both bikes. Also a good place to learn about gaskets and orings.
