What is the maintenance schedule for the R1200R fuel filter? My 2007 has just over 30,000 miles on it with the original filter. Am I due?

Fuel filter replacement?

My R1150R was something like
replace fuel filter in normal operating conditions
every 40,000 km/25,000 miles,
if fuel quality is poor every 20,000 km/12,000 miles.

I don't have anything in print on the R1200R.
Any other members out there got any ideas?

So, you're due for one flbmw.
Hope that helps.

No Fuel filter

Just checked the maintenance schedule for the bike.
Did not see any fuel filter change listed.
Pulled up parts diagram. Did not see any fuel filter listed.
Guess the R1200R has NO fuel filter.
Just a green strainer on the fuel pump.
That's good. One less thing to worry about servicing, Eh?

Of interest was that the newest DOHC RT bikes have a listing for
a lever and float system to indicate fuel level.
No more fuel strips for the DOHC RT guys?!!!
The Roadster still has the fuel strip listed in the parts diagrams. : (
Don't forget to change your anti-freeze.Ha-Ha.

That's funny. When I lift my tank off, there is a "thing" connected to the fuel line up underneath coming off the fuel pump that looks just like a fuel filter.

That's Funny!

Yes, that IS funny.

There is a good possibility that I am dead wrong.
If the "thing" you found says Fuel Filter on it, Congratulations.
It will have an arrow to show the direction of fuel flow.
But don't rip it out until you're sure that
it is not the carbon canister or the tank breather valve.

Where did you find this maintenance schedule? The only thing I have in my owner's manual is a bunch of boxes for the dealership to sign that the maintenance is completed, but I'd like to know the approximate milages for maintenance items so I can be ready for them.

Thanks guys!
