Did the repair myself, but took the bike in to have the recall documentation for the bike and stated that the flange had cracked. The dealer said if that is the case, they are replacing the pump. About an hour and 10 minutes later I was headed for home with a new pump.

Whole pump was replaced...


Scary to think that I thought I had a minor leak, it turned out it was major and not noticeable due to the fuel dropping onto the headers and evaporating before hitting the ground.. The left leg of my riding pants was also soaked with fuel.


Bike runs better with the new pump... Maybe the teabag filter was becoming clogged?? It is not a maintenance item. I asked.

My 12GT's pump failed and I paid the dealer to fix it... Not long after that, the recall came out and my dealer was kind enough to provide me with a gift card for my full repair cost. Nice work BMW of Las Vegas, going the extra mile is very much appreciated.

I've read this elsewhere as well, as far as it dripping onto the headers. Makes you wonder what took BMW so long to issue the recall... What a relief you must be feeling, I'm sure..

Reinforced the flange myself and the dealer said it was better than they would have done.

To see the leak I had to be at full speed on the freeway. I could see the fuel flowing out the left side of the bike near the oil filter.

Since I carry my dog as my riding partner, I had a plan to drop the bike and pull him out of the carry bag..... If my leg was on fire......!!!!! I hate to think about it.

Dealer replaced the fuel pump and QD. Also, Max covered installing the hot start kit for the charger under warranty, even though it expire last year. I have complained to them a few times and they finally realized that this is what I needed. real Good people at Max.
