The Fuel Gauge Showed Low Level And The Reserve Visual Alarm Stayed On While There Was Plenty Of Fuel In The Tank. Reported To Dealer, Official bmw Dealer Broward Motorsport Of Palm Beach, Their Report Claimed They Have Fixed The Issue, The Motorcycle Had 1166 Miles At Time Of Service. Today, At 1540 Miles The Same Issue Occurred Again, There Is Plenty Of Fuel In The Tank But The Gauge Show The Lowest Bar Only And The Visual Alarm Light Stays On At All Times. I Will Now Have To Take The Motorcycle To The Dealership To Install The 3rd Fuel Gauge In 1500 Miles. It’s A 17,500 $, 2013 New Motorcycle, Still Under Warranty, But I Would Like To Know What Will Happen Once The Warranty Will Be Expired, By Reading Online Forums It Seems Like This Is A Very Common And Repetitive Issue With Apparently No Solution Apart From Keep On Replacing While It Will Keep On Repeating. Please Inform If There Is Any Solution. Thanks *tr
