fuel hoses

The stock preformed fuel hoses are no longer available from BMW, 14 years is a long time for hoses so considering changing all of them tank to fuel rail.

Two questions - are these hoses failing the source of some of these bikes catching on fire and has anyone changed them just for age - the supply and return running over the motor seem to be pretty heavy duty hoses.

Thanks in advance for opinions

Really? I see that the parts are all still available from my source. I don't know about anyone else but I replaced my hoses when I replaced my engine at 209k. The hoses were not that bad but I replaced everything rubber that I could since everything was so old. I just hope my wife don't read this and think I'm going to try to replace everything because it's "old".

where did you get them? Not listed on realoem and when I talked to the dealer last year they had discontinued a couple of them at that time

Re: fuel hoses

I only see one part # as not available & it was replaced with a new part number. I'll be at the dealer tomorrow & check the three part numbers for availability.

Re: fuel hoses

I changed all hoses last summer. No problems in getting the new ones from the dealer.

Born to be wild so why not

Re: fuel hoses

all the dealers in Toronto area are combined with a car dealership and the guys in parts do not know much about the small motorcycle part of the business - the older guys you could depend on are all gone - more or less have to tell them what you need

Just do like I do and order from MAX-BMW in the USA using their parts-fiche online. You will get much lower prices (even with $CA to $US exchange) and good service (they really know their stuff).

Depends on order size and weight, but I often have $30 to $35 charge for shipping - for any order above $110 (roughly) I get at least break-even with $CAN price when I include these shipping cost. I have compared for the last 12 years and the Canadian retail prices for parts is often 30% to 40% more than the US parts list.

MAX-BMW will ship using the regular US-Postal system to Canada. Glad they do NOT force me to use UPS or FEDEX, because that would cause a lot of additional charges.

Thanks John - ordered all 4 - last time I priced the long supply or return they were around $100 each at local dealer. UPS always wants at least $30 extra when they show up at your door.

Gary,
I refuse to deal with USA vendors when they force me to use UPS or FEDEX to Canada. UPS or FEDEX is OK for emergency and for serious business who need it NOW - but for us in most cases it is just too expensive with all kind of additional charges (over border).

In worst case, if I cannot find a certain item (not only motorcycle related) and I do not have any other choice, I will have them UPS or FEDEX to a relative who lives in NY state at 1:30 hour from my place.

Not valid this time for your hoses, but do not forget BeemerBoneYard for many OEM equivalent parts (air/gaz/oil filter, plugs, clutch plate, slave...). They also have a large supply of used parts for the K1200. They ship US-Postal service to Canada at a good price. They have a good reputation in the BMW community - very good and personal service:

Re: fuel hoses

All three part numbers are still available from BMW. I did ask the parts department if BMW does discontinue a part do they give any advance notice & the answer was no.
