Thanks Wolfgang,   I was leaning toward RH, your opinion is good.   I have potentially another BMW a R1200CL also with an ABS fault, just haven't got around to investigating or running diagnostics on this bike yet.

Thanks a million.  Dave

Hello Dave

1. for a used unit I only would pay 100,-€
2. I had the best experience with RH-Electronics.
    For three of my friends installation and function without any problems.
    The oldest device has been running for 4 years now.

Hi GvG,

as I went through the drill myself:

Adaptation reset is usually done with engine cold.
After adaptation reset is done  run the engine at idle until warm (80 or 90 deg Celsius  - or fan turns on if watercooled).
Since I do not know which bike you refer to - this is the procedure for the F650 (single, FI model)

If you reset adaptation values - upon success - the GS 911 software will guide you trough the process.

Hello Wolfgang,
Maybe you have some input?   Have checked a new ABS would cost approximately €1600, with discounts.   A second hand or used units typically starts at €2-300 upto €1000.   My opinion is that a faulty sensor does not warranty a replacement unit and a used unit will have more Km's than my unit (my 1200C only has 12K Km).   There appear to be the following repair options.      1). Module Master in the US charging $750 and the shipping cost, although there don't appear to have started this service as of today.    2).  RH Electronics in Germany, providing a refurbish service at similar money or a repair service where cost is based on the parts and labour required.  At this moment RH looks like the best.  In your experience have you had any experience to the options I mention or possibly any other options?  Thanks Dave

Left to note that

Manufacturing Date:   1400-04-10

is not a typo. It is as reported by the unit.

PS: Yes, I also noted that. And from the logs it would appear that is really what the controller is sending...

Dear Jan and Wayne,

It has been a pleasure doing business with you guys :) Very happy to read all of the happy news! To many more F650 miles!! I'm tempted to get myself one (again) after all of this. Did around 55,000km on my F650GS Dakar before she came to an unfortunate sudden stop. Never to fly again.

@Jan: Will be in touch about that 5000 software driven unit...

@Wayne: With thanks to yourself and Haakon!

Safe riding,

Nicol

Wayne,
thanks so much for the insight.
I was on tour over the weekend.
Tonight I swapped the SW5000 series BMS against a SW8000 series BMS (said BMS with incorrect VIN).

Voila - adaptation reset worked like a charm.

Also the strange behavior of the sluggish return to idle (with idle being too high) caused by the IAC has disappeared.
A new injector is underway and will be installed this weekend.

As for incorrect VIN:
Indeed this was BMW in Stuttgart Vaihingen (not a dealership but a BMW company outfit). So not a garage bricoleur.

Pending final adaptation to the new installed injector and test ride this resolves the maintenance issues for the owner of the F650 R13.

Yet I think it might be worth to have a closer look at the BMS with SW ver 5000: Data release:   50003611

Left to note that

Manufacturing Date:   1400-04-10

is not a typo.

It is as reported by the unit.
Maybe a silly programming errror in the SW 5000.

I also noted the following:
the SW8000 series BMS seems to add start functionality.
That is - when warm , just press the starter button and the engine will rev up shortly just as one would do when starting a carburetted engine. (A wee bit of throttle).

Did notice this when using the SW5000 BMS

I will get in touch with hexcode and we will see what to do with the SW5000 box. Might be some interesting forensics....

regards
Jan

Thanks for the reply Schuppi,  it sounds like I have 2 choices.  1). send the unit to ModuleMaster or 2). Try to obtain a used sensor and replace myself.   Thanks  Dave

Hello Dave

Pressure in Rear Wheel Circuit >> 95.19 Bar
That's a faulty pressure sensor inside the ABS-ECU. No way to repair without dismantling the unit
and replace the sensor.
But there is no chance to get a new one from a dealer.
Sorry

General Discussion / Re: Unable to Launch GS-911downloader in Windows 10
« Last post by Wilson on September 23, 2018, 02:23:39 PM »
Just received GS-911USB and have attempted to launch GS-911downloader on two separate laptops with Windows 10 - an Acer unit and a Lenova unit.

The download of the GS-911downloader appears to be successful, and the User Account Control window comes up asking to allow app to make changes.

Respond with "Yes" and then goes into never-never land - never launches.

Have confirmed Administrator Status.

Suggestions ?


Thanks in advance.



sometime i downloaded many software which is run by clicking on run as adminstrator so
Right-click on icon and select "Run as administrator"
