Fuel strip fault

Post by Doctor T »

After nearly a year my fuel strip has given up. A zap worked when i first got the bike but now nothing. Going through the service history i found Lind Motorrad fitted a new strip back in 14/05/2021. How long is the warranty on these parts?
If i do have to buy a new strip would the motoscan app reset it.? A GS911 is way too costly for me and the bits i do on the bike.

My understanding is that if the owner made a financial contribution to the replacement part, then it should have a 2 year warranty.

Update. Chandlers Motorrad Brighton. Has said as long as the part was purchased and was not a warranty claim within the last 2 years They will replace and fit the strip under a warranty claim. Strangely if the part was originally fitted as a warranty claim, there is only a 1 year limit.
Glad i looked through the service history to find the original invoice for the fuel strip.
The previous owner paid £330.00 for the part and fitting last year.
Further looking through the history, the bike has had 6 strips fitted since 2009. BMW told me the most reasons that they can work out for the failures may be Ethanal and or vibration.
One other question what is a Trundle?. The bike had a new one fitted 2 years ago, Whatever it is, it was expensive. With some consumables the invoice was over £1000.

Is there a part number on the invoice.

Sorry got my reading mixed up. I've worked it out. It turns out to be the shaft with the UV joints within the shaft drive casing. Then the bevel drive needed a total rebuild. Sort of makes sense of the cost now.
Question 2 what is an RDC sensor?. this needed to be recoded.
