    Fuel pump recall, part two.
    « on: 2020-10-14 00:54:59 »
    Those of us with hexhead bikes remember the “fuel flange “recall from a few years back.

    The original problem was the composite flange at the quick disconnect coming out of the fuel pump assembly was flexing due to pressurization and depressurization of the system and developing cracks around the base. The fix in that last recall was to place a metal retainer ring over the flange to reinforce it and to eliminate or mitigate any cracks... or replace the fuel pump.

    Well apparently that metal flange fix wasn’t good enough; in the mail today from BMW I got a recall letter saying if you had that recall done, they want to replace the fuel pump. Apparently there have been more reports of leaks and that metal flange didn’t solve the problem.

    Also of note is the line “no remedy available yet “ - which means they either have to put a different style fuel pump assembly in, or they are building up enough parts up to send out to the dealers.

      The original fuel pump assembly recall we dealt with years ago:

            My new to me 22005 RT developed a fuel leak soon as i got it. Apparently the fuel pump housing was cracked, took 5 weeks for a replacement, luckily under warranty.
