General Discussion / Re: GS-911 V1807 (July 2018) software updates available
« Last post by GS Jim on August 13, 2018, 11:44:27 PM »
I found some time in between trips to play around with different combinations of time and distance for the service reset.
 For the 2018 R1200 GS TFT it seems the maximum time is 3 years for the current date and the distance is 60,000 km from the current odometer reading, any thing exceeding these will set to these maximums. Interestingly the dash updates immediately without having to cycle the ignition and the app also shows the new settings right away (which I think it already did).
 Some people might wonder why you would want these extremes but I don't think I am alone in finding the service reminder useless and a pain in the butt, a oil life percent would be more useful (which is common in 4 wheel applications).
 Well time to finish cleaning up from a dusty Dualsport trip and prepare for more dirtbiking before leaving in September for a month in S.A. (the home of Hex Code, (hope the service reminder doesn't go off on the rentals ::))

Hello

BMW Motorrad recommends SAE 5W-40, API SL / JASO MA2, Additives(e.g. molybdenum-based) are not permissible
because they can attack coated components of the engine,
There is no other viscosity discribed, so I think it's your choice to test the separating of the clutch, gear box noises when switching gears
and all the diverences for the engine with this "thick oil".

How do I... / HP2 Sport O2 sensor plotting
« Last post by peterskill on August 13, 2018, 05:49:39 AM »
I have recently serviced my HP2 and tried to plot the O2 sensor.  I was able to access the real time values but cannot see the icon that allows me to plot the O2 sensor.  I can see the O2 heater working.  I can plot the O2 sensor on my k1200r.  Can the HP2 Sport O2 sensor be plotted in real time?   Also I cannot locate a calibration for the exhaust flap valve.  Thanks in advance.

Technical / Re: 2008MY F800GS re-program the BMSKP

Bikes with a failed BMSKP can have a new BMSKP programmed up by a BMW Dealer and existing keys added into the replacement BMSKP

It may be possible to buy a used BMSKP with the keys for that VIN/BMSKP & then add your existing keys into it but it would be a gamble

The question on my mind is why you consider the BMSKP has gone west, can you communicate with it using GS911 ?

The plan is not achievable even with BMW Dealer software as the BMSKP stores the master EWS records matching VIN & keys.

Wow, this doesn't look good.
But hang on does this mean that bikes equiped with units have to be scrapped when the units fail?
Surely not.

It seems the control unit has gone West.
The plan is to buy a used unit and "introduce" it to the existing CAN nodes on the bike, it seems this part is fairly widespread.

My GS-911 is  GS40068801-18A9 Bluetooth capable: Yes
WiFi capable: No

Before I launch into the murk, does anyone know if my plan is achievable using a GS-911.
Many thanks in advance

Engine related issues / Re: 2014 R1200GSA LC Erratic Behavior
« Last post by Jughead on August 08, 2018, 09:19:47 AM »
So I Have been able to replicate this problem multiple times, and the error travels with the LHS throttle body. 

I have moved the throttle body left to right, as well as to a second, problem free bike, and there too, left to right.  The error and symptoms are persistent and always point to that particular throttle body.

Going to replace it and attempt to dismantle the faulty one to see what makes it tick.  Will update here.

Mine did the same and all I did was reset the adaptive values using the GS911. I did however remove the throttle bodies and gave them a good clean as I had been using crappy fuel in other countries, I believe this also helped. It’s an easy job, you just need to know how to remove the muffler clamp. Can provide photo if required.

Have cleaned throttle bodies and reset adaptations.  Makes no difference at all.  Will post some realtime graphs tomorrow.
