    service light 2010 R1200RT

    hello,

    Can anyone tell me how to extinguish the "service" light on my 2010 R1200RT (besides taking it to the dealer)? The manual refers to a yearly checkup, but it was just in for service before the light came on.

    Thanks,

    Ed

    Welcome to the forum Ed! I'm going to bump you up one notch to Hexhead/Camhead for better positioning of your question. As far as I know, the only way is with something like the GS911. They have been around a while and there is a great thread in the gear section about the "new being tested" bluetooth version.
    If you would like to have an idea on how they (GS911) work, there is a nice walk-through in our tech section.
    Again, welcome- any questions, just ask.

    Welcome to the site Ed.
    If your bike was just in for service they should have reset the service light after the service.
    Call your dealer and tell them it appears they forgot to reset the light and ask if they'll reset it for you the next time you're at the shop.

    Dealer or GS-911.

    I just posted a short review in my blog and closed by saying that for me it's worth it just to reset the service light on my bikes.

    PS: at least twice dealers have failed to reset the service interval after a service visit. Closest dealer is 265 miles away.

    Just get your riding buddy, your pal, your clubmate, your whatever who has a GS911 to reset it for you.
    That's what I do for the pals, as I have the GS911. All they got to do is ask.

    I do my own routine maintenance and don't want to buy a GS911.

    I've noticed that when I'm looking at the road ahead of me that I don't even see the message.
    Now: '12 R1200RT Midnight Blue Metallic / '11 Ural Patrol 2WD ridden to Alaska / '09 KLR 650 / '05 HD Heritage Softail / '08 Harley Sportster 1200C / '85 Yamaha VMax bought new. I wasn't ready to say goodbye: www.shaunlunt.typepad.com

    The silly light came on at 6,000 miles. Been on ever since. I do all my own maint. I have 25,000 miles on the bike first year. I would have had it put out 5 times so far. Screw it, the bike is fine, its just a true idiot light.

    If the text is the same size as on the K1300S, it's easy to ignore because it's really tiny.

    I can remember a couple years ago someone kept saying you had to clear the Service warning or you would get the yellow triangle after awhile. Turns out that wasn't true.
