The squared is positive. The rounded is negative.
I got a call this week from a guy with a R1200RT who had his fuel pump controller fail while on the highway at speed. The engine died, the rear tire locked up, but he was smart enough to pull in the clutch lever preventing him from going down.
It's sad that BMW hasn't done a proper recall on ALL the controllers. Someone is going to get hurt or die from this failure.
Thanks for the info, my controller failed a couple months ago, not too far from home luckly. So I got the failed controller wires hooked up to a sae connector that I can use to plug into a sae plug wired to a powerlet.
Hope to see ya again Stephen
Any idea what length is necessary for the F800GS? My bike is a long long way away, so I can't measure...
Are you using the side seat power socket or the one on the tank (if you installed one)? The standard 38" will work for the side seat socket.
Is there any drawback to using a bypass permanently? I know it's used to vary the output but there is a fuel pressure regulator also.
The life of your fuel pump would be shorter, maybe.
Just reading this thread for first time. How are the 2011s? Have they fixed it? My salesman (lol) says it is fixed.
There have been some failures.
Ordered mine...pump failed last evening on my wife's first pillion ride....
The OEM bypass cable sold at our local dealership here costs 3 times as much!!
Are you saying the fuel pump controller costs three times as much as the bypass cable or that the dealer is selling fuel pump bypass cables like the ones I make?
The cables like the one you make costs 3 times as much at the BMW dealership here in Singapore. :eek1
Now don't you go upping your price you hear??
I had no idea the dealers were making them. I'd like to see a photo of it.
I'll try to take a picture for you on my next visit. Which will be the next few days I hope.
I bought one of these bypass cables to see if the FPC (or FPE BMW seems to want to call it now) was faulty. I'm not working on the bike, someone else is. They tell me that when they plug the cable into the accessory socket and hook it up as instructed, the bike will start and idle for a few seconds, at which point the fuel has shut off and the bike stalls out again. Before the bypass cable was connected, the bike was getting no fuel at all and wouldn't even start. I didn't think to ask what accessory plug was being used to power the pump. Think it might be a case of the Accessory circuit sensing the overload and shutting off that accessory circuit? I've been told there are no fuses (2005 R1200GS) and that the bike's circuits are electronically controlled, with the bike shutting off circuits with anomalies, then rechecking that circuit on restart to see if the anomaly has cleared. That was probably as clear as mud.
I received this cable at the speed of light within a few days of placing a PayPal order.
Customer service: top notch/highly recommend this guy
Couple of weeks ago I ordered a cable for my bike from Steve , he sent it out immediately with the Post Office. Couple of days pass and I am wondering were is my cable at.Contact USPS they say they dont see anything on their shelves etc etc
Waited nearly two weeks and after calling back and forth still they cant find nada.
I contacted Steve explained to him the situation and he immediately sent another piece no questions asked.Now in my life I have met shitty and good people and Steve definitely falls in the latter.
Just wanted to give my proper thanks and respects writing about it in this forum.
And I would like to encourage inmates who will not try to cut off their mouse cable and attach it to the tender, to check out his stuff and support these kind of businesses.
Thanks! Customer service is everything!
Just wanted to express my thanks to Stephen Burns at Burns Moto for great customer support.
The package with my order got lost in the mail and he send out a second package immediately after receiving my email inquiry about how to proceed.
Two thumbs up for excellent customer service.
It's always good to hear stories of good service. People tend to focus on the bad ones too much.
