    Well my forth fuel strip died today, Nov. 29, 2017 just four and one-half months after it was replaced. Going for my fifth but that will be the last one. Next time it is trading the bike for a Honda ST 1300.

    only one replacement

    07 R1200GS replaced once still acts up a bit

    Thumbs down 2009 r1200r

    Sixth failure, in today for the seventh new strip. First one failed at 600 miles. Sixth failed around 10800.

    I only have two years left on the free warranty. Definitely will sell before the new one fails. Will not be doing BMW again if they donít come out with one that works properly before I sell it.

    Between the stupid fuel strip and returning to the dealer every year to reset the computer for $30 plus tax, Iím sick of BMW. Seriously considering a Honda adventure bike.

    With the Honda you can set your trip meter and use it to schedule fuel stops. Or, you actually could just ignore the idiotic fuel strip info and just set your BMW trip meter and accomplish the same thing. But if you want a Honda - go for it.

    Mark - have you gone to NHTSA and filled out a complaint? That's probably more productive than complaining about it here actually. BMW isn't going to fix it due to this poll - despite how embarrassing it must be for them. There is a chap somewhere who came out with a float assembly conversion, I believe for the GS... so that could be done if BMW was motivated to do it. It will take NHTSA to motivate them.
