R1150 GS connectivity issues?
« on: November 08, 2023, 05:56:13 PM »
I'm hoping to use my GS-911 to diagnose an ABS issue on a R1150 GS. When do the autoscan I get that there is a motorcycle of some sort connected but choosing selected vehicle is grayed out and doesn't work.

I tried the Select Vehicle approach but when I select the ABS controller I get a communications error.

Is this a problem with the bike, a lack of GS-911 features available for this model or something else?

I tried to post a couple screenshots but received an error that the post is too big.

Thanks

Make sure the bike is on the centerstand with the sidestand retracted.  Also make sure the kill switch is not on.

Side stand is up and the engine is running.

I'm kind of disappointed. I may have to fall back to using an LED to get the error code.

Too little information to answer a question correctly

My friend,
if you can read with an LED you are using the wrong equipment.
Your motorcycle may still have ABS installed without an integral function.
Then you need to read it:  http://dl2.hexcode.co.za/products/gs-911/images-1/threepin_interface_shop.png

Thanks - I guess mine is an earlier model.

Does your bike have a small Flat three pin connector as found on the K1100 & R1100 machines or the round multi pin connector (as found for example on the R1150RT)
