Fuel Pump Flange Nut Tool
Well, I'm caught in the middle. I have all my 24K service done except the ABS (Dealer will do) and the fuel filter. I have everything I need to replace the Fuel filter. I even have the cool Oetiker Clamps and Special tool to install the new ones.
When the dealer sold me the parts for the Fuel filter, clamps, and fuel pump gasket, they never mentioned that they use a special tool to loosen this large Flange nut that holds the fuel pump assembly inside the tank. It's also very important to have this tool so that you can torque this flange nut to 75 Newton Meters. I found out that there was a service bulletin from BMW to do a recall and torque them to 75 NM's.
NOTE: The K1200RS CD-Rom calls for 30 NM's. If you do your own disregard the CD-Rom torque spec of 30NM's. The correct Torque spec is 75 NM's! Failure to torque this F Nut correctly and you could have leaks which could lead to a fire. Not Good.
So now what the hell do I do? Bikes all striped down tank off, parts in hand, and, I call the closest dealer (125 miles) and he quotes me $225.00 to change the fuel filter.
So after all this techno garbo, Does anyone have or know where one might rent this special tool? I'll pay for all the shipping, plus a rental fee. This Would have to be way cheaper than $225.00. I'm so damn close! Man it's frustrating! Help!
