Let's put it that way - for people not used to metric it's often not easy to quickly double check whether the 1 1/14" are 28 or 32mm. It's just a completely brain dead system, no, not the metric - that one actually works.

Use your last 7 VIN digits (also on registration papers?)...
See if you got the one you ordered.
(for example I didn't back in 2007... I never knew before checking here... They swapped parts in the reseller as it seems - which I don't care since they were surface parts like seat, covers etc.)

The reflection of the tiles (too clean!) gives an interesting paint job idea.

Trip A Function

If you have Trip A enabled, you might be interested in what I have figured out. You probably know that Trip A measures total mileage for the day.

I find this an interesting number to know, so I like having Trip A enabled.

So, here's what I just noticed: Trip A will retain the last day's total when you turn on the ignition the next day, allowing you to see how far you rode. However, as soon as you start the engine for the first time on that new day, it will reset to 0.

really?
that seems so odd?
so "trip b" can be used like a "tradition" trip meter?

remind me:
do i have to SET THE DATE when i get the bike for the first time?
i know that IF i have the GPS... it will communicate with the bike to make sure the CLOCK is always the correct time.

Trip 1/2 are user-resettable trip meters - Trip A automatically resets each day.

With the navigator iv/v (and the corresponding setting switched on in the bike's setup) the gps will set the time/date automatically when it has a fix. However, the bike will have the time/date set from the factory (or by the dealership which does the PDI).

Yes - 3

For the record I have disabled Trip A, Trip 2 and Consumption 2 on my display as I never use them, even on trips. But I know lots of people like to keep track so it's nice to have the option.

Yes, with the OBC Pro option it gets the A. Standard as 1 and 2.

It's mentioned in the rider's manual which you can download from BMWs site. That might help you through a few more hours.
