New GS911 user, using secondhand GS911
« on: August 07, 2020, 09:00:45 AM »
Hi all, My partner and I own 2 R-series bikes. She owns a 2000 R1200c and I have a new 2020 R1250RS
I bought off a mate his GS911, he only had one bike connected to it, his R1200RT which he has since sold.
It is the older unit with the 10pin round plug and I have bought the adapter lead for the OBD2 connector.
At this point in time I have left it registered in his name.
First question; if I change the registration do I get charged for a new licence?
Second question; I connected it to my partners bike, there was no prompt for the vehicles VIN? Doing a autoscan it failed to read the VIN  ???

Second > automatically VIN reading for models later 2004
Models with older Motronic control units do not store VIN.

Is the GS911 the older yellow one or a red GS911 Wifi ?, if it is the older yellow one it will not be able to be used on your 2020 model

Thank you for your reply. I understand where and how to update the registration. I just wanted to know if there was a licence fee involved.

Thank you for your reply.
It's the Red unit with the older 10pin plug. I have had it read the R1250RS ECU
