Thank you.
Basically it allows you to read the diagnostic codes from the BMS-C2 unit but you need to plug a G911CanBus and connect it to the PC through usb port:

but it does not allow you to reprogram anything.
You might do it only through the JTAG interface...Well Good Luck!

Cool2 X-Country pics

Here's mine! Built the rack out of 1/8 aluminum (less than 30$ for all the materials). Next time ill pay to have it plasma cut instead of cutting it by hand. Its pretty rigid although im going to build a solid one piece mounting bracket for it tomorow. Last pic is of the aux fuel tank im building for the bike. Im running out of farkle time!!

This extra fuel tank looks awesome. Is it made of alloy?
What's its capacity?
Need pictures of it hooked up on the bike.
Thanks

How will the XC run on 89 or 91 Octane?

That's all I can get around here. I've got '97 F650 and she's quite satisfied with 89 octane. Will the new FI Rotax of the XCountry be happy?

I'm considering purchasing a new 2007 out of Daytona or Orlando BMW ($6995 OTD) and selling my F650.

I'm on a small island (St. Croix) and don't get to do any overnight trips anywhere. The lighter weight, better fuel economy and more dirt-worthy features really appeal but my F650 is still going strong and just don't know if it makes sense to replace it. I ride mostly to commute but enjoy jeep trails too. Anyone gone from a Classic to a XCountry? Great looking bike!

My dealer told me it will run fine on 87, it just won't have as much power and the MPG will suffer.

WHO THE HELL MAKES A 19" DUAL SPORT TIRE FOR THIS GD THING??????
About the only thing I can find, other than the tourances are Mefo's.
Anyone got one on their Country? I think I'll have to try one.
Please don't say TCK-80's. I won't get 1000 kilometers out of one where I live. Thanks anyway.

No, It's a regular trunk I bought to fit on my XT600E that fit afterward on my XTR660. Hopefully, It fits too on the XC .
I just bought the G650X tank bag on Ebay. I got a the Xchallenge bashplate as well. It was all 60% below the original price. The guy told me that the bmw shop went bankrupt and He bought all the spare equipement stock for a penny.
