My original equipment fuel strip on my 2009 R1200R failed at 33,000 miles. My tank was running low with about 39 miles to empty. I was looking for a gas station on the right side of the road, to avoid left turning, and the low fuel light came on and the miles to empty reading showed ---.
I have an appointment with the dealer to have it replaced.
I always reset my trip odometer and my GPS fuel gauge at each fill up, so I have never run the tank dry.
I would leave the fuel strip unrepaired, but the low fuel light is annoying and I want to have that thing turned off.
