So I'll change it out myself.

Anybody know what they cost?



According to Max, fuel level sensor (part # 16147675547) sells for $170.32. DIY will save you at least that much in labor costs, I'm sure.

Mitch, unfortunately the darn bike needs to go on the BMW computer to calibrate the “dry” fuel strip hanging outside the tank before insertion into the tank. It used to be a long drawn out process but now there is no liquid required for calibration, but you can’t specify the reserve size any longer either.

Is this something one could do with a GS-911?

Hi once again Mitch

That is a very good question that I can’t answer. I guess a call or E-Mail to GS-911 folks might yield the best answer on that.

I'm getting my second strip replaced Thursday. 1st failed at 14 miles, second made it to 2800. 7 hours round trip to dealer and however long it takes to change. If this keeps up, guess I'll just stick a decal over alarm and low fuel displays and continue using trip meter.

No.

It's been asked on the GS-911 forum (Google) and their standard response on this and similar things is, "...this would require recoding of the bike which we don't do at this time."

Doctor – I need to learn how to relax faster.

If you want to ride tomorrow, ride quietly today.
Quiet is cool, silent is sexy.

Crap.

Well, at least a fella could minimize labor cost by pull the panels and sidecases before surrendering the bike to the dealer...
