Our modern 'antenna ring' necessity?

I found a thread where Beech introduced this item...to me, it seems like a 'must have' if your bike is on this list.

I just ordered one to carry with me on the GSA.

Re: Our modern 'antenna ring' necessity?

Interesting.

Stupid, but serious question, how do you know its a fuel pump issue if the bike won't start?

Re: Our modern 'antenna ring' necessity?

Assuming the motor is turning over, my guess is rather than spend time diagnosing a fueling issue, just plug and play this workaround of a known deficient part and you find out in a matter of minutes. Then go from there.

Re: Our modern 'antenna ring' necessity?

I didn't realize this is still a problem on the LC bikes.
On the previous GS the fuel pump assembly sat horizontal and held water causing corrosion.
I figured when they went to the vertical assemble there was no longer a problem???

Now that's funny! I thought the same thing when I bought '15 GSA thinking that after 35 years in production they would've worked out all the bugs...well, after lots of corrosion, and some falling apart forks, we know different don't we?
