I recently noticed petroleum smell when at stop light and when I got home and put bike on side stand gas began leaking down left side of bike. I immediately contacted my local BMW shop and took the bike over to be looked at. They found a defect in my fuel pump which was causing the gas leak. The whole pump had to be replaced at a cost of $460 plus labor. I contacted BMW of North America as I felt this was a potentially dangerous situation with gas leaking on hot engine but they would not help me as warranty was expired. I would like to know if anyone has had a similar experience or could give any advice as to possibly attempting to get BMW to rectify the situation.
