    Fuel strip r12r

    Does a 2013 R1200R have a fuel strip sending unit or a float type? thanks

    If yours is out, I'd bet money that it's a 'fuel strip'...

    Ya might check with your nearest dealer.

    Sure hope it's not a 'fuel strip'; I've been through four.

    Fuel strip up until 02/2013 I believe. I may or may not be right, but I do know the LC Rís do not have the fuel strip

    Mine is a 2013 R and has the fuel strip. So far, 3 in 50,000 miles.

    I have a 2013 R1200R. It has a fuel strip. I had (2) replaced. After the second one failed I gave up. I just use the trip odometer. At 170 miles I start looking for gas. It is a REAL pain for me to take the bike in to have it replaced. It is not worth my trouble to keep replacing them.

    On my 07RT that I have owned for 5 years I went through 4 in 3 years all from the same dealer. Then while on a trip I had one replaced at a different dealer and it is still going strong after 2 years unless I just jinxed it! There have been no changes in how I fuel so it seems to me there may be some differences in quality between batches perhaps. This is my last one no matter what but just wanted to point that out.

    It's a quality control problem arising from the design: hard to manufacture, apparently, as some fail quickly and some don't at all.

    My '07's was replaced in the first six moths. The replacement, 52K and twelve years on, still functions correctly.
