Fuel strip

Postby Sander Abernathy » Fri Mar 14, 2014 11:13 am

Does the R nineT have the oft and justifiably maligned fuel strip found on the R12R and other BMWs? I looked at the parts fiche and I could find it on the BMW R12R fiche but couldn't find it on the R nineT diagrams. I also couldn't find any other part that appeared to be tasked with detecting the fuel level. I'm concerned that if the bike doesn't have a fuel strip we won't have anything to complain about and this discussion group will have little or no activity.

Off topic, has anyone else had difficulties registering at ninetowners.com? I register but never receive the email required to complete the registration process. I've tried with two email addresses and sent requests to the administrator to no avail. I have checked my junk mail folder and the email isn't hiding in there.

As far as I understood it, it's got a new version of the strip, but dumped the OBC readings for miles to empty. Just a low fuel light, basically.

I've had the same issue at NineTowners. The exact same issue actually. Lost has an account, I'm curious as to how he managed. Maybe I'll just sign up as a premium member... There is a pretty active NineT community already over there.

Like Karamazov said, just a low fuel light, which I confirmed mine works last weekend. :D
Will still go by the odometer though... glad BMW took the miles to emty function out, will save a lot of headaches and bandwidth... lol
