EWS fault and stuck in Ushuaia

Guys, thanks for the help. Got the bike shipped 2,000 miles to the dealer in Buenos Aires. Turns out it was the BMS-KP.

Currently trying to get one in the US.

Due to the import regs in Argentina it could take 5 months to get one imported. Be warned about riding in Argentina, fantastic rides but no spares and service difficult if you get these kinds of problems. The shop in BUE has been helpful so far but still looks like it'll take about 3 months or maybe 4 to get it sorted out.

I have arranged for Wilbers shocks to replace my damaged units but can't get them sent till the computer is fixed. Overall an very expensive clusterf**k.

Probably should have tried to ship the bike to the US from Ushuaia, repaired it and sold it. Maybe could have happened to any bike but I have 2 x Super Tenere's and both have been dead reliable however one is still lower mileage.

My BM has done 17K miles.

If anyone has any ideas about getting the spares into Argentina I'd appreciate any advice I can get.

cheers dave
