I am new to this forum having only had the bike about 4 months or so and having been extremely impressed with her to date. I will give my views on what I think of it in due course but I have a problem that perhaps someone who might have had a similar issue, could help me with.
Whilst out in the middle of North Wales on Sunday afternoon, the fuel warning came on and I travelled approx. 15 miles further when she cut out (I presumed, through fuel starvation!). There was fuel in the tank but she simply wouldn't restart. Topped her up and still no joy. Managed to get the bike home thanks to a really good friend with a Transit!
I would be extremely grateful if anyone could give me a few ideas as to where to start.
I'm pretty sure it's not a fueliing problem and am leaning toward electrical issues.
Been in touch with my local BM dealer and need to wait 2-3 weeks before they can look at her. (hmmmm!)
I am pretty good with mechanical checks and repairs and the bike had a full BMW service at the end of June. She has covered less than 9000 miles.
Any pointers would be much appreciated.
