    That might be expected - the R1150RT didn't use a fuel strip.. it was still using a float assembly.

    Unfortunately - it appears one can't change their vote after voting. Doggone V-Bulletin.. at least I can't see how (I believe on some other VB forums I belong to - one can change their vote after voting..)

    Cheap Tucson Gas????

    I have a house there. Now that I think of it, two of mine went south after I gassed in Tucson and headed back to NM.!!.

    That must be it - don't fuel in Tucson and the problem is solved...

    One at around 18k on the clock, but was already past the 3 year warranty on my 08RT. Dealer made good on it. Not sure what will happen if it fails again. Now have about 28k on my bike with no new fuel strip issues.
