I would imagine the 2017 would still have warranty as well (depending on when the original owner bought the bike in 2017 of course..)

BMW only recently brought their warranties in EU/UK in line with North America's 3 year plan.  It's entirely possible that 2017 only had a 1 year warranty.

Hi folks , had the S1000r, 15 plate for 4 years now ( great bike) , changing it now for the 17 plate with the auto blipper, question is do you have to shut the throttle off to change down, or can you keep the power on and change down ?

Yes, one of the permissions for the down shift is to close the throttle. But if you do it all fast enough you can get right back on the throttle.
I'd like to say that the 2017 bike has a larger alternator output also. Something like 406 watts vs. 340 or so on the 15. I used to own a 15 and glad that I up graded to the 17. All the stuff sounds small but when put together a much improved bike. Some of the 15 models had starting problems, mind did but I found a solution and it was just fine when I sold it.

I'm sorry but you are giving people false information here. Tou absolutely do not need to shut the throttle during downshifts.

Granted, you probably shouldn't downshift with a wide open throttle, but you absolutely can downshift with the throttle open.

Yes, I have down shifted with out going to zero throttle. Just thought that was what it said in the manual. I'll look tomorrow and see. Thanks for the up date. We all want other readers to have the facts.  :028:

Was in the same boat, the 15 was $3k cheaper with less miles, I also like the stock exhaust better on the 15. The 17 has auto bliper and less handlebar vibration.
Went with a 15 and after riding it for a while I find myself actually enjoys practicing rev match a lot, the feel when you did it perfectly... 😊

I too like the 15 exhaust. So much that I figured out how to install the silencer on my 17. The mid piece from a remus slip on and moved the silencer bracket a couple of inches on the can.

So I did some reading in my manual, page 76 I think. And it does not say it is mandatory to be at throttle closed to down shift with the quick shifter. It implies that sort of. "During deceleration and down shifts (throttle plate closed) the system blips the throttle to obtain the correct engine speed"
What did catch my eye was later on in the section was this:  "changing the acceleratior twist-grip position during the gear shift sequence may cause the function to abort and/or the gear change to fail"
I can see that when you want to drop a gear to accelerate faster why would you want to close the throttle. I tended to use the down shift feature only in tight corners slowing down through the gears.
I do believe the 17 bike up shifts better than my older 15 bike.
