    Depends how you interpret it - either he's unhappy that BMW paid for the tow, or maybe that dealer had to pay it and then file for reimbursement, and/or they have a dead bike taking up space until the part shows up.
    In the end, tho, it don't really matter...

    I have a customer bike awaiting this replacement and the dealership tells me they are months behind on the availability of new pumps.

    I have never seen a “real” picture of one of these pump assemblies. Many times the actual pump can be crossed to a sub-assembly actual pump from a company like Airtex.
    Maybe an owner doesn’t want to sorta do it twice but may save the riding season.

    My bike is having various issues with the fueling and surging. I will not ride it because it is dangerous the way it is. The last time I rode it the engine cut our in the middle of a large intersection. Not good. It did restart and I got it moving but it died again, but I was able to pull the clutch in and get out of the intersection. I do have a second bike so the riding season is not lost. I would have purchased a new RT if they had one in stock but my dealer has presold the ones coming in. My dealer is also backed with service for 2.5 months. This happened with all the recalls that BMW has had. I know that the entire motorcycle industry is a bit crazy not. Even the big Harley dealer that always had about 30 to 50 new bikes and 50-75 used bikes, they are lucky if they have 10 new bikes. The huge showroom is empty and Harley is not shipping many bikes out to them.

    I'm also told parts not available for my 2011 R1200RT.

    I called my local, Garcia Moto, shortly after receiving my recall notice back in the Spring. I was told that they had used their inventory and to call back early the next month. I did, and still no pumps. The staffer suggested that I order one for my bike. Odd, because I thought they would keep track of that but anyway, I ordered one. Six weeks later, I called again to check on the status of my order. The staffer, a new guy, looked up my vin and said that there was never an order placed for me. He said that he would, and two weeks later, notified me that a pump was being held for me. I got my bike in, waited an hour, and left with a new pump. Sometimes, it just takes an employee that gives a ****, to get things right.
