Thread: GS-911 Error

    GS-911 Error

    I have a 2007 R1200RT and last week I did my 6000 mile service. The bike has 47,250 miles. I purchased the bike in February this year. After completing the service I hooked up my yellow GS-911 and ran through checking fror error code of which there were none. Now came the time to reset the service reminder. There were no indicator on the instrument cluster when I started the service because I had only accumulated 5500 miles since purchase.
    I had an error code come up for the GS-911 that reads as follows:
    The service indicator in the instrument cluster was only introduced in Cad-Bus enabled models that were produced as of August 2007.
    The manufacture date of my bike is 02/07. It seems self explanatory but I was not aware there are not any service reminders on my bike.
    My question is, is this for real or did I purchase a goofy 911 second hand.

    It is for real. No service reminder on your bike.

    That's what it said. I took for granted I needed a diagnostic tool for a R1200RT, or I would have to deal with the yellow triangle staring me in the face. I guess I will have to accumulate the full 6000 miles to see if anything pops up.

    There are other useful things you can do with the GS911, even the older version.

    I agree, there are may useful things a GS-911 can do, I was just surprised about the service reminder. I just assumed the RT's had that feature. An incredible bike by the way. This is my 3rd BMW. I've had an air head, oil head and now a hex head. Each bike had it's own flavor, tasty.

    The dealer extortion light was installed in 2008...

    If you can park it, and not turn around to admire it before walking away, you bought the wrong one.

    No Service Reminder light

    That's why I bought an '07 bike.
