ESA half broken

have a 09 R1200GSA with ESA (1/2 im not sure, how can i tell?)

Went for a short trip over the weekend (200miles) but needed to take alot of kit with me, so went to put the bike into luggage mode (1 helmet + suit case) but it is simply stuck on 1 helmet.

no matter how long i press the ESA button for it will not change, i can how ever cahnge between comf, norm and sport settings.

Anyone got any ideas/advice?

this will stop my taking the poor thing into the dirt this summer as cant change to off road settings and bike is only mode of transport. The rear shock got replaced by BMW under warranty aug last year, so is still relatively new (although approx 10k miles since then).

Are you driving down the road when you try to change to a luggage setting? You cannot change those settings "on the fly". The bike must be stationary.

nope, i first noticed it whilst ona slope, so was in gear and had brake on, so rode to a flat spot, engine running, neutral, no brakes, same thing

I've changed freely for the last 15months without any issues, so i know how to change setting ;)

BMW parts installed by BMW are probably still covered by parts warranty. Get them to fix it.
Normal is just a setting on the dryer.
