Distance to valve check ... 406184 miles? Corrupt data?
« on: May 09, 2024, 02:50:06 AM »

I'm on a trip currently in Guatemala and fired up the GS-911 today to reset the service light after an oil change.
I've had a GS-911 since I bought my F650GS-twin in 2008. The "distance to valve lash" feature has always worked well for me.

But today when I checked the value, it reported the "Distance to valve check" as 406184 miles
I was running V2312.5  ...

I upgraded to the current version rebooted the laptop and reconnected my GS-911
but still got the same value with the current version of the s/w ...  :-\

Is anybody else seeing this?

It's not the end of the world but thought I'd bring it up.............

Thanks,
Jim

I have saved Autoscans for the bike going way back, but the distance to valve check is not captured...

PS:  I tried using the "GS-911 LEGACY VERSION CODE:  V2107.1 to see if the value there was correct...

While  V2107.1  DID work with my red-WiFi GS-911 last year .. .
It now throws an error and states it will only work in conjunction with the older yellow-colored units...

Over 290 views but ... interestingly apparently no other similar experiences...   :-\

Just my luck ...

I've owned the bike for 115K miles (since new) and found the "internal" counter to always give me a few thousand extra miles
presumably because I don't spend a lot of time with the needle on the tachometer buried ....

I reckon I'll just reset it manually at the next check, and hope it holds going forward.
