Mine gas gauge went south last March--when we were at Torrey.
I normally fill up from the right--gas pump on the left, hose stuck into the right hand side of the gas tank--so as not to disturb the sensitive fuel strip. But this time all the pumps were in operation, except one, where I had to violate my previous practice.
Gas gauge never worked since.
Been living off the trip meter ever since. But the yellow "Triangle of Death" and flashing gas icon is bothering me enough to want to fix the d*mn thing. But I keep reading about those who have had "the fix", only to have it fail again and again. Of course my bike is out of warranty, so any decision is going to be out of pocket.
As I understand, this is not a DIY job, as the bike has to be strapped to the magic BMW shop computer, with the tank completely empty, and the gauge "retrained" to know when it's empty. So it's not only the cost of the part, but also shop time $$ to fix what shouldn't fail in the first place.
Since my closest shop is 3-4 hours away, has anyone found a way to fix it themselves? Would a GS 911 be of any help here?
