I had mine replaced at 600 miles. At 8,500, no further problems. This is weight-saving tech. It's a ribbon that senses fuel level. It's not that accurate, but so what - the bike is awesome. ...

BMW Motorrad sales from 2-08 to 2-09 were reported down by 18.3% from previous year. Yes, they'll survive, but the bottom, I'm afraid, is not yet in sight. My hope is that the good dealers won't...
