Has anyone needed to replace the fuel-sensor strip? Mine malfunctioned at 10,200 miles (fortunately still under warranty). I only use high-octane fuel (91+) and brand gasoline (e.g. Chevron, Shell).
Yep.. the fix is call a "Float". Very old school...RoyK said:Mine went at 60,000 km and the dealer informed me that the factory had put a halt on further manufacturing of fuel strips due to defective strips. Does anyone know more about this issue? Maybe we will eventually get a real fix.
Lemon law claim ? Most even award attorney fees too !skyrider said:I am fuel strip number four and my 2010 RT only has 17,000 miles on it. I have written and called BMW customer service numerous times. It appears that unless there is an organized effort to make this problem something BMW can not ignore there will be no fix for it.
I need to correct my first post for clarification. I meant to say that my friend's bike is a 2011 R1200R and not an RT. My RT was built in February and has the fuel strip. They could have changed over later in the production cycle. It sure would be decent of BMW to offer us a change over to the float system!cessna said:My friend's 2011 R1200RT has the fuel strip and yes it did fail. Of course it was replaced under warranty but it took a while waiting for the dealer to get the correct software for the 201 1200R. They may have switched mid year to the float but I know his has the strip.
