    I forgot to have my dealer install at the 600 mile service. Can I just plug it in myself or does it require a computer flash from the dealership. Thanks

    No flash needed on my 17.5 Rallye. Just plug and play away.

    I know this isn’t parallel universe, thought the same would apply to my wife’s 17 700GS. Put in the plug and Nothing! I think it is the bike. Any other GS, plug in and go.

    Guys, quick question.. I rode a test bike, I think it was a 2014 k50; the riding mode 'dyna' had a picture of a 'chip' in the dashboard..
    does it mean those riding modes are not available unless they have this plug you are mentioning?

    Thanks!

    It is just a jumper. Nothing magic.

    Dealer was not allowed to plug it in for me, I had to do it myself. Some kind of liability from a dealer plugging it in and a guy killed himself on the way home.

    Enduro Pro is not for the inexperienced or faint of heart.

    You can set it so it is just you and the motor, period. No ABS, not DCT, no throttle restrictions, no corning ABS, nothing but strait up "regular brakes" and all the motor has to offer.

    I will never use it but I am sure experienced dirt riders will use the heck out of it.

    It's plug and play but don't do what I did and unlock your seat and put the key on top of the bosch controller and then put the seat back down on top of your keys while you're 50 miles away from home......

    Bike started fine(keyless) but I had no way to get my key back out. Had to buy some replacement springs after breaking my seat locking mechanism by crowbarring the seat off.

    On my way to the garage now.... to unplug it! I put it in at the dealership. I'm a little faint of heart on the GSA still.

    Sorry me again :)

    Does the chip icon -next to 'road' - in the dashboard mean it has the Plug?

    I hope that was sarcasm. Seriously, no need to unplug it, just don't switch to any of of the Pro riding Modes. Keep it in Road, Rain, or Enduro modes only as appropriate. (or Dyna)

    It can be installed by the customer at anytime, however it is recommended that you wait until the 600 mile service. That is to give you time to become familiar with the bike and since you are supposed to keep the revs low until that point it is really useless.

    Happy riding, you are going to love it!

    Depends on your bike. 2017.5/2018 has Enduro Pro and Dynamic Pro if I recall. My 2017 GSA only has Enduro Pro w/ plug installed but the manual actually makes a mention of dynamic pro.
