Experienced A Failure Of The Charging System Resulting In Stalling The Inability To Restart The Motorcycle. This Failure Happened In Heavy Traffic, Leaving Me Stranded In The Middle Of A Multilane Highway In Rush Hour Traffic. The Bike Started After Jump Starting, But A Test With A Multimeter Showed No Increase In System Voltage With The Engine Running, Resulting In No Charge Being Applied To The Battery, Preventing The Efi And Ignition Systems From Functioning. In The Week Leading Up To This Incident I Experienced Intermittent Surging, Sputtering, And Stalling, Although It Was Not Until The Incident On The Highway Where I Experienced A Failure To Start The Bike. This Failure Left Me Stranded In Dangerous Traffic, Requiring Me To Push The Bike Across Multiple Lanes Of Traffic And Down The Side Of A Highway To Get Assistance. *tr

This Is For A bmw F800gs 2012 Trophy Edition Motorcycle Gas Tank. I Just Discovered Cracks In The Fuel Tank Just Underneath The Seat. I’ve Also Smelled Also Gas Coming Out Of Those Cracks And Confirmed It Is Venting Gas/air Combination. I’ve Contacted The Authorized bmw Dealer From I Purchased The Motorcycle Which Is Under Warranty And Less Than 1 Year Old, And They Said This Is A Cosmetic Issue. They Also Told Me That They Are Going To Replace The Gas Tank But With The Same Model/part Number As The Existing One And They Also Told Me That The Cracks Will Happen Again Even With The New Gas Tank. I’ve Contacted bmw North America And They Also Told Me That This Is A Cosmetic Issue After They Spoke With The Service Manager. The Motorcycle Is Now At The Dealer Waiting For The Gas Tank To Be Replaced However They Didn’t Provide Me With A Loaner During The Repair Time Which Is Now Past 3 Days. After Doing My Research I’ve Also Discovered That Many Other F800gs Owners Have The Same Problem And This Started From 2008 So I Was Sold A Motorcycle With A Known Issue For The Gas Tank But Nobody Told Me Anything. Again , Cosmetic Or Non-cosmetic These Are Cracks In The Gas Tank And Gasoline/air Combination Is Coming Out Of Them Which Can Lead Including To Explosion. *tr
