Hello from Wellington, New Zealand
on: December 07, 2019, 10:12:04 PM
Hi All,
Just in the process of buying my dream bike, the BMW s1000r.
I have a the 2017 model in Catalano grey lined up. 6,000km on the clock.

Signed up to try and find a service manual and get a feel for upcoming maintenance, what should I be aware of? The bike is displaying service light "17 InAir". The owner states that the Service light is on because it is on a timer, needs a reset - easy plug in clear. Any feedback would be appreciated.

Not sure what the "17 InAir" is(apart from 17 degC Inlet Air temperature??)?

Do you know when the bike was serviced last?? (BMW service is every 6000 miles or every year, whichever comes sooner), if it has not been serviced since the 600 mile inspection, then it is due for oil/filter. brake flush and general check over. The easy plug in and clear is true, but only a dealer can do that(or a GS911/some ODBC tools). Most dealers will not reset it without a charge.

I would suggest you ask the seller to get it serviced and inspected at a dealers before you part with your cash.
