Do my own service
« on: March 26, 2019, 02:05:50 AM »
Hi everyone, i just buy a left over 2018 s1000r and start looking for information about maintenance, since the closer BMW dealer is 600km away form me i plan to do all the work myself, including first service. Some information are easy to find, other are confusing

The steering bearing nut, it use the same tool as the s1000RR?
to remove the 9000rpm rev limit, only the gs-911 can do it?(something else that is cheaper can be nice)
led flasher on non led model need to be switched in ecu? can the gs-911 do it? 

thanks for your time
Phil

Yes same triple tree nut socket. Since you are going to do your maintenance you need to buy the OEM DVD. It has many details that are not obvious by just going for it. It also has icons by the jobs for the tool section. The pictures can help you make some of them, or give you an order number at least. Then find on line (A&S motorcycles in Sacramento) the official service maintenance lists and time intervals. I think Haynes has a S bike manual out also. I have a GS 911 and I have not seen anything about removing the rev limiter. You will need one though for other work and service interval reminder removal. You will need to go to the dealer to get the rev limit removed. Maybe someone has a home trick but I have not heard of one. Having the dealer do the 600 mile check up is a good thing as they will scan your computer for the need of any up dates.

Thanks, I never really looked for that in service as mine was done at the dealer. But, this is great news, another good feature for the 911 tool. As you say, this thing pays for itself quickly.

I use the MotoScan app and the OBDLink LX for servicing which is a lot cheaper than the GS-911.
I'm not sure if it can remove the run-in limit, if I get a chance I will connect it to my bike and have a look.
I got nothing.....

you can check to make sure, but motoscan guys just reply to my email, look like the only option to remove the 9000rpm is gs-911
