I met Larry at the BMW dealer in Edmonton. On his way back from Alaska, his EWS warning came up on his display and he wasn't going any further. Cost him $900 to get his bike hauled to the nearest BMW dealer. He camped overnight right on the property and was ready to go by 10 AM the next morning.
The part is very easy to replace- does not need programming and cost is about $200.
I have already ordered mine to keep it handy just in case. May come in especially handy in remote areas
Also know that the stock bolts that hold this thing in are NOT removeable- they need to be drilled and tapped and replaced with 6mm Allen head bolts. I got the dealer to do this to mine after they finished up with Larry's. Took 10 minutes and they didnt charge me for it. Good sports.
Larry was a little peaved that he will be missing some of the July 4th celebrations-he was from Oklahoma I think.
Thanks for the Tip Larry!!!!
