The tech said it was a bad "strip" and not bad gas. When asked if it will happen again, he said: It could. When asked what I could do to prevent it he said: Start using your trip to double check the gas gauge. That's not exactly the most reassuring answer about a bike that is supposedly designed for long distance travel. I should just carry a lined stick to poke in the tank, maybe? Oh yeah, cost: $280.00
I rode my K100RS for nearly 16 years without this kind of grief. It seems that everytime I take my bike out I am worrying about some bug in the design. Tranny failure and cam failure used to be at the top of the list based on some of the horror stories I've read here...now running out of gas is in my worry box, too. Good grief.
