R1200 models / 2014 R1200 RT - No Spark
« Last post by LC Peters on Today at 05:06:03 AM »
I bought this bike at an insurance auction, limited cosmetic damage but because BMW cosmetics are expensive new - written off.  Looks like previous owner lost it on a gravel road.  Crash bars absorbed all of the impact around the engine.  One saddlebag cover, mirror cover, buff out headlight, replace taillight damaged by towing company - nothing related to engine or major electrical systems.

Voltage was reading low so installed a new GSM battery - which I charged for a full 24 hours.

Engine turns over but won't start.  Immobilizer / Keyless Ride Controller does not show any faults.  Only faults that show are for things subsequently repaired - sirius antenna, tail light, etc. and none that should impact starting.

Pulled the plugs, engine turned over and immediately could smell gas so I don't think its an issue with the fuel system.

Attached the plugs to the coils, grounded them to the cylinder heads.  Turned over the engine again - no spark. 

I swapped the coils for ones off a running RT, no difference.

Swapped the Crank Position Sensor, again no difference.

Did you manage to get to the bottom of this? My bike is exhibiting exactly the same symptoms

Hi Steve,

The limiter reset can be found in S-series -> S1000XR -> the Engine -> Service functions ->  BMSX or XBMSMP1 configurations -> Set RPM limiter.

If you have any other questions, feel free to contact our support team:

Technical / RPM limiter Reset Issue
« Last post by SteveS1KRR on February 16, 2020, 10:41:04 AM »
First off, Apologies if this has been submitted before as I briefly scanned the forum and for the novel.

Performing basic maintenance(oil and filter change, air filter clean etc.) on my 2017 S1000RR and while connected with GS3 that is on most recent update as of this posting date to reset service reminder and showing a mate of mine how it would work on his 2015 S1000XR, he somehow while scanning thru turned the RPM limiter on. The break in period is long gone as the Bike has over 13k miles (20km) on it, however I am unable to turn it back off as it shows it has 0 mileage. I know what you are thinking easy fix, ride the minimum 310.7 miles (500km) and then reset. However after riding over 350 miles it still registers as 0 miles and will not reset. Getting ready to move across the country and will not have a Dealer within a days travel, and attempting to avoid having to get a dealer to fix this issue with there normal goto "oh there is a update for $300 we can do to fix this" that they like to do here in the states. Located in Arizona until the end of the month and really need some help here.

Thanks in advance

Have problems updating from version 1912.1 to the last version.
No way to make it happen. Neither by the software as such nor bye the updater tool. Any idea what to check for?

Hi Exopar

Would you mind logging a ticket on our helpdesk, I would like gather more information from you and some screenshots if possible.

Kind regards

Can't update mine either. It says there's a new update but nothing happens when I press the button to update.

Today I had time to look into this problem again.
Because of the lack of time, I also didn't had time for a support ticket.

While searching for a decent OBD-2 connector for my cars, I saw on a forum the comment an "Cannot connect to / no response from Controller" is most likely a hardware or connectivity problem.
So I tried again, but with a different USB C to B connector, and it worked again.

Changed back to the USB C to B connector I used in the past, and surprisingly that one also worked as it should.

There must have been a bad connection.
Problem solved. (I hope at least)
