There are no service intervals for the fuel pump. If you are concerned have them install a new fuel filter.

And replace all the in tank hoses. They do go bad with time.

In the states they'd be pressuring you to buy new bike if you brought an 11xx for service. Shops never go in the tank unless the mc is towed in dead. How much are they charging you for this oil change, I mean service? Let us know what they "find". I seriously doubt if it will be the stuff you actually need like throttle cables. Your due for r-r clutch slave to inspect, lube the bearing. Make sure they replace the rear input shaft seal if they sell you a new slave. I'd bet that they would install it with the old hose and its rusty lower banjo.

Have em install new filter and inspect/change hoses. Ask for the old parts.


Or do it yourself and save $300.00

Pump shouldn't need anything

Slight thread jack...

Is this something one could do on the side of the road easy if they
had say a kit from beemer boneyard with them.

I know the first question...where do you put the fuel during the swap?

Other that that particular problem do you foresee any other major obstacles?

Good advice. I would tell them to replace the filter sock on the pump as well.

Buy the filter kit from Boneyard (seals, filter and clamps)

Run the bike till the gas is below 1/8 tank. Pull to side of road and change out the filter, its rather easy once the tank is off and on its side.

I think the BB kit has the large O ring for the access plate and that would have been the only issue IMHO. The one you'd remove would be swollen and wouldn't provide a good seal when you reinstall.....leaking fuel onto right cylinder etc.
