I agree, I love the bike otherwise, but why not just positively address and remedy this issue?

Stainless steel fuel pump would really help.
Removable fuel filter would also be nice.

I have to call bmw roadside assistance to take the bike to the dealership.
The dealership goes over the bike and says the fuel injectors are clogged.
The dealer says the 2010 bike has smaller jets and more of them then the 2009 bike.. So they have had problems with the bikes stalling out and not starting.. so the dealer says that bmw says that at every oil change to put in their fuel injection cleaner to fix the problem.. well gee I did not even get to 3,000 miles for the suggested fix... I thought this bike was suppose to be dual sport and designed to go across the world in third world countries. So I guess it is time to remake the "Long way round" with a bike that could make in the year 2010.. I am not happy about this and think bmw is going in the wrong direction for a dual sport bike.

After owning a f650gs and now 2 f800gs.. not sure I am going to buy another dual sport from bmw if they are going to fail me on the road!!!
2009 f650gs twin...2x such failures luckily within 10 miles of dealership...still required "towing". Unbelievable for a supposed any 2009 bike, much less one badged as a GS.

Use premium w/o ethanol.

Out here in my little town there is a gas station that sells Premium w/o ethanol.
I gotta say when I rolled out of the dealership more than one of the mechanics told me to use only premium gas and add the BMW fuel additive. After reading this string I see why they went on and on. Gotta say it all makes since. ADM messing with fuel, engineers adapting to new fuel and riders doing their PM's.

I for one just came inside from adding more fuel additive to my tank -
