I totally get that few will subject their beast to such aerial adventures. But it's cool if they do!
Can anyone tell me if my new 14' GSW will have self cancel turn signals?
Not on my 2014 either. But my KTM 690R does it!
There are several mistakes in the owner's manual. Another is the lever that controls the aim for the headlights, works backwards from what it reads.
this is a serious ?
I wonder. Is there any BMW that does that?
Because there MUST be a BMW that does that, else where did the bad copy/paste came from?
The G650GS and the Sertao definitely do that. Maybe they were planning the same for the LC but then decided not to bother?
Thanks didn't know that. I used to have a Dakar (the direct ancestor of G650GS and Sertao) and didn't expect they updated the electronics that much.
F650/700/800GS and K1600GT/GTL the speedo and tach needles sweep across the range when the key is powered on.
thank you steve
Yes, although it seems like it takes forever for them to cancel at least on my bike.
Agreed; I have only had mine self-cancel a handful of times over the past year ... and then to the chagrin of folks following me. It takes an eternity! Nearly always mine are cancelled by physically moving the switch.
I didn't even know they self cancel.
I think the manual says 10 seconds or 300 metres of motion. Wouldn't swear to it. It's just long enough for them to deactivate on freeway slip ramps.
All 1200 GS from 2004 ( not sure before that ) have self cancelling turn lights.
They cancel either after a time period or after a specific distance.
The GSW can be programed by the dealer to different settings. I don't remeber if earlier 1200's are also programable. For the GSW I know for certains that there are 3 options for time/distance but don't recall what they are.
My F800GS does a full sweep on startup. My R1200GS does not. My manual doesn't mention it (Rev 4) so it's possible the Rev 1 or 2 models did the sweep but it was removed in a subsequent software update before the manual was updated correspondingly.
I have over 20,000 km's on my new 2014 1200GSA and noticed the surging issue in 2nd & 3rd gear, light load and 2,000 to 4,000 RPM range. Just happens to be where I spend a lot of time and it took a while for anyone to even acknowledge that the problem exists.
After asking my amazing local dealer to run my complaint further "up the food chain" with BMW in Canada, I received a response from BMW Germany ...imagine!!! They acknowledged it is an issue related to strict emission requirements and at the moment there is no fix, but they are working on it. I was very pleased with that quick reply .... ah ha, I'm not imagining things.
Absolutely love my new moto, this is my 3rd 1200GSA. Amazing how it tracks in the dirt and the seat is plush and cruise control is the best. Have taken it into some real gnarly stuff in Mexico and then a most unbelievable journey through BC, Yukon and Alaska.
Oh, and by the way, I'm not waiting for a BMW fix .... I installed a Power Commander and I have my bike back ... it is dreamy smooth and fuel economy improved by about 10% (using the European Map)
Note to self: Add commander to WGS too.
Indeed my GS with commander is more fuel efficient (contrary to popular belief).
