Resetting Service indicator

Post by bargood »

Hi, Have a general question. Just purchased a 2013 1200 rt. Service indicator bar is on. How do I reset it? Do I need a special gauge? No BMW motorcycle shops near where I live. Thanks

I have one. Its a great piece of kit. Found a fault log on the alarm which Dealer confirmed was nothing.

The GS-911 is a good bit of kit, I think there's a cheaper option for using a device for resetting the the service reminder. "MotoScan | Professional BMW motorcycle diagnostic app" https://www.motoscan.de
The GS 'is' the better bike :-)

There are a few UK owners of gs-911 who will reset your service-o-meter for a score. Look em up on ebay. (Not me BTW)

If you have an Android mobile device you might want to look into the MotoScan app...that, coupled with the right Bluetooth OBD2 reader and an adapter cable is a fraction of the cost of a GS-911.
MotoScan can reset service reminders and do many of the functions of a GS-911.

BT OBD Scanner:

OBDLink LX OBD2 Bluetooth Scanner for Android and Windows https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00H9S71LW/re ... 9EbEHPK16M

Correct cable for your bike:

Qiilu OBD2 Diagnostic Cable for BMW ICOM D Module Cable 10pin OBD Adapter for BMW, Motorcycles Diagnostic Cable Tools Work with BMW ICOM or BMW ICOM A2 A3 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B075K7MQFC/re ... 9EbC8AEPTT

Ride safe!
