I am fast coming to the conclusion that this filter is the root of the problem.
If you think back a lot of the "Bike is cutting out" posts came from inmates stuck somewhere in the 3rd world.
Think "crappy gas, blocked filter"
I just can't believe that BMW think this is a life of the bike service item. FWIW the local dealer's service manager agrees with me.
Every vehicle I have ever owned scheduled a fuel filter change at about 40,000 km.
As soon as the bike gets back from having the crash damage repaired I will be removing the in tank filter and replacing it with this one mounted externally.


This is a filter for a Peugeot 206/306 and was chosen for the very good reason that I had it in the shed left over from a car I no longer own.
