    On Board Diagnostics code reader for BMW?

    I recently became aware that there are several companies making code readers for the OBD2 computers that have been mandated on all cars sold in the U.S. since 1996.
    I'll probably buy one to keep tabs on my 2002 Subaru Forester, but it got me wondering if such a thing is commercially available for my 2003 K1200GT. Or is it a proprietary BMW thing that only dealers can have?
    I assume my bike does not have OBD2. That would be way too convenient.

    Exactly how would I use the GS-911 [odd choice of number designation]...I have seen these mentioned for months...but what practical good would it do a "shade tree" mechanic like me trying to maintain his '07 GSA?

    Thanks...Phil::

    It allows you to see what the electronics think is wrong with the bike. This can lead you in the right direction to correcting it.
