Replacement of the Fuel Strip sensor with the Float sensor
« on: November 23, 2021, 10:58:39 PM »
Hello StephanT,

Regarding the possibility of replacing the strip sensor with the float sensor, the solution was found by a colleague on the UKGSer.com forum.
To read the article paste this string into the browser and it will take you to it "Fuel strip to float conversion complete guide. (ukgser.com)".

The electrical diagram is very clear and shows where the pin change should be made and it is quite simple.
The problem is in the ZFE configuration where we have to change the parameters. The article says:

Programming!
Without this computer "ZFE" doesn't know you just installed float type sensor...
Connect the cable find your bike on the list K25ADV in my case...
Go to central chase electronics ZFE
and find Thermo Coupler FLS 08 and change the value to Potentiometer. Press CODE
Next, find INDUCTIVE FUEL SENSOR change to"deactivate" press code.
You're done!


The colleague DenzO is using a Moto Scan App with OBD linkLx scanner.

It would be very interesting if you could implement access to these parameters so that many who suffer from Level Strip Sensor can resolve the issue definitively.

These are for the R1200GS and R1200GSA from 2007 to 2010, the year that BMW returned to using Float level, due to the huge amount of problems caused.

Waiting your opinion and answer.

Best regards,

Guilherme

We currently have this feature exposed in Beta on the Web App. Reason for not doing a full release yet is that we have insufficient data on what controller types and Coding Indexes fully supports this.

Here is what the GS-911 currently does:
1. Read controller type and Coding Index.
2. Expose the two coding options mentioned (two only if controller supported, sometimes just one) with advice to change in tandem but the ability to change only one.
3. Write ZFE coding and update ZFE configuration parameters.
4. Write VO changes to all controllers that carry a VO copy.

Anyone looking to access this feature and give further feedback can contact support to join the Beta program.
