Fuck that!

Angry Fuel strip is fecked on the bike again. Apparently, it's an issue with this model and year only FFS! Anyways - done a bit of research and costing etc....£190 is the best I can get for supply and fit. Fook that, I'm setting the trip meter as I know I can get 210 taking it Nelson Eddie of course. 180 and it gets filled up. Robbing bastards!

I'd recommend that you don't trust the mileometer v fuel consumption method.....

Any chance of a used one?

Looked into that but they don't last very long so I don't think it's worth it.

Good luck with Williams - you'll probably have to educate them about the known fault!

That's German engineering for you  Wink

Is there no option to retrofit the sensor from a different year?

Yeah, been reading up on this with the Yanks GS website. They reckon it's down to the ethanol... yep! That evil stuff...eroding the metallic strips in the sensor .... but it can fail in months or never...

It's an easy fix to put the new one in....but as per usual...it has to be keyed in by BM.

Bastards!

You keep saying how much you love her...

Get it to Williams, give them your best psycho stare...and say you want it free as a warranty claim OR you won't be coming back for a new GS.
