I am in for the blue plug and long set of wires for a 08 GSA Adventure, I have a spare BMW power plug already to add to the other end.

TIA

Laugh Me too!

I'll take one with the BMW plug that will plug into the auxiliary plug near the front of the fairing. Great work!!

after several failures (4 or 5) on the fuel pump module, I bypassed it. For the moment about 3000km it is running smoothly.
The fuel pump is the same model used in the R1150xx. So there should be no problem when this unit is running always 100% load.
The only weak point could be the fuel filter situated in the FLANGE.
Cheers

I just got a call from a guy in New Mexico who said his friend's 2008 R1200GS ADV had the fuel controller fail. Looks like the new tank design with 'better drainage' is not working.... Was the tank redesigned on the 08 GSA or just on the GS?

My bike died on the way home yesterday. It sounds like this could be the problem.

How do I diagnose this without actually tearing into it? Or is the only way to just jump the wires?

Thanks

I read somewhere last week that the GSA didn't get redesigned, it was just the GS. I think I have the link with pics on my home pc. I'll try to remember to post a link later today.

Thanks for the cable S. Burns. Excellent rapid service and a nicely made product. Hope I never need it, but if I do, I've got the fix.

my buddies 05 just crapped out because of this controller, so being a good guy he bought three of the bypass cables, one for himself and one each for his two buddies, now thats what i call a friend!

Great cable well made and just the right length.

Fuel Pump Controller Cost

Whooo

I just got my bike back from the BMW Dealer (Calgary, Canada) after having the fuel pump controller replaced. The bike was down for 18 days. They did the work at BMW's cost, but it did not turn up on the list of "Technical Campaigns" for the bike (R1200GS, production date March 2008).

I've order the cable from Burns, and hopefully it will arrive soon. Its good to have the bike back, but confidence is not high!

I also checked into getting a fuel pump controller as a spare. Other discussions mentioned the price of a new controller at 65 Euros and $95 USD. At the one and only Calgary BMW dealer the quoted price was $216.81 CAD (0.90 CAD ~ 1.00 USD). Question - could this part be ordered via www? (PN 16147720776)

BTW, I saw the old fuel pump elecronic controller they took out and it looked great. Not dirty, no corrosion, the plastic cover (epoxy) was intact with no cracks, the connectors looked good (shiney contacts), and the turquois o-ring looked and felt good without cracks. It was "to be returned to BMW".
