Question Aus BMW GS warranty extension

Hi,

I need my fuel strip replaced in my 2010 gsa 1200 and just found this about them in the usa.

Warranty Coverage Extension
16 002 14 (017)
12 years

Basically they are a bad design so BMW will do the replacement for free rather than the $400 i was about to be charged.

Does anyone know if this also applies to us in Aus or do BMW have different rules for different Countries?

I hope i am about to save $400.

What did BMW say when you asked them?

Thumbs down

BMW Australia cover their own warranties so they may have a very different policy in regards to this issue, they certainly do in relation to the fuel pumps on previous models R1200GS, in the States a nationwide recall and replacement, in Australia if it leaks fuel they will try and repair it.

My fuel pump leaked (cracked on the plastic on top) and had the 'fix' (the clamp around the QR fitting) done by somebody other than the Dealer cause they dont fix, they replace. It leaked again 8,000km later and i contacted the local Dealer because i heard on the vine that there was a recall. Initially they baulked and told me no recall. They rang me two days later to advise it would be replaced as a recall. The bike was a 2007 R1200GSA with 100,000 km on the clock. For once i can say nice things about a Dealer. Keep pushing!!!! Make some calls. Good luck.

I took my bike to Procycles in St Peters for a different issue and when I collected the bike they told me it showed on the computer that some or other recall has not been performed on my bike. Something around the fuel tank and if I recall a plastic part being replaced with metal one.
I was not paying attention at the time, but maybe it is related to above?
