Ahr but they do have a factory lowered option on the list now  Laugh

Because I like em...... 2 of the things and touch wood this ones on 25k and just over 2 years old and only had a couple of minor issues resolved efficiently on warranty ...... have to say though I am rather liking how the Yamaha FJR1300 rides having had one for a couple of shifts .... can't really get on with the BMW RT's but don't mind the Honda Pans

The thread has a new post Kev:-


Quote:Had a similar issue on my '07 GSA with having to Piezo Zap my faulty Fuel Strip about 4 / 5 times over the past couple of years to avoid the dreaded yellow warning light on the dash..... Got well fed up with BMW UK's response to my complaint and basically treating UK customers as crap because they can get away with it as UK customers just take it and still come back and buy more of their products.......

I have only got between 4 and 6 months between 'zappings' and got fed up with this cycle a couple of months ago and decided to go down the non harness damaging electronic fuel spoof electronic circuit made up of 3 resistors soldered together as in this post I saw on the Advrider forum;

Probably only done a couple of thousand miles so far on this set up but looking good to date and I don't feel the same uncertainty of when is the yellow light going to come back on. For info - The fuel guage just reads full the whole time with the electronic spoof in place.
