Are you saying the fuel pump controller costs three times as much as the bypass cable or that the dealer is selling fuel pump bypass cables like the ones I make?

I had no idea the dealers were making them. I'd like to see a photo of it.

I bought one of these bypass cables to see if the FPC (or FPE BMW seems to want to call it now) was faulty. I'm not working on the bike, someone else is. They tell me that when they plug the cable into the accessory socket and hook it up as instructed, the bike will start and idle for a few seconds, at which point the fuel has shut off and the bike stalls out again. Before the bypass cable was connected, the bike was getting no fuel at all and wouldn't even start. I didn't think to ask what accessory plug was being used to power the pump. Think it might be a case of the Accessory circuit sensing the overload and shutting off that accessory circuit? I've been told there are no fuses (2005 R1200GS) and that the bike's circuits are electronically controlled, with the bike shutting off circuits with anomalies, then rechecking that circuit on restart to see if the anomaly has cleared. That was probably as clear as mud.

Props to BurnsMoto

Couple of weeks ago I ordered a cable for my bike from Steve , he sent it out immediately with the Post Office. Couple of days pass and I am wondering were is my cable at.Contact USPS they say they dont see anything on their shelves etc etc
Waited nearly two weeks and after calling back and forth still they cant find nada.
I contacted Steve explained to him the situation and he immediately sent another piece no questions asked.Now in my life I have met shitty and good people and Steve definitely falls in the latter.
Just wanted to give my proper thanks and respects writing about it in this forum.
And I would like to encourage inmates who will not try to cut off their mouse cable and attach it to the tender, to check out his stuff and support these kind of businesses.

Cheers!

Just wanted to express my thanks to Stephen Burns at Burns Moto for great customer support.
The package with my order got lost in the mail and he send out a second package immediately after receiving my email inquiry about how to proceed.

Two thumbs up for excellent customer service.

It's always good to hear stories of good service. People tend to focus on the bad ones too much.

Where's the "Like" button.....? Yeah, Stephen's a Facebook friend of mine and I have met up with him the last time I was in CA. He's a good guy and offers great customer service.
