It does logging, too. Since dealerships have been unable to resolve the problem after 5 visits, I had been gathering logs of it stalling to eventually send to BMW corporate ... or something.

Ostensibly, the BMW computer unit should be able to do the exact same 3 reset functions. It "should" take 15 seconds to do, so hopefully you'll be able to talk your dealership into doing it for you for cheap, or free. I think you're supposed to do it with the engine cold, and then idle it until the fan turns on.

Now if there was only some way this GS-911 could fix the wretched transmission on this bike....
