I have a 2005 R1200rt with just under 65,000 miles on it, I bought it in 2011 with under 50,000 on it. On my trip last week, about an 1/2 hour after a stop for gas, the gas light started flashing, guage showing empty, but showing around 300 miles left. Called my dealer today about it and they said that BMW is covering them for up to 12 years, parts and labor. Anyone else hear of them covering it for that long. Some of the 2005s still were on the float, and I figured mine was also due to the threads I've read and how fast some were going out, and it all seemed to be the newer models. All of the parts fiche that I looked at for that year model, all had the strip and none mentioned a float for a 2005. But the warranty is still good news.
