How to reset service date?

I'd like to reset the service date on my '09 GSA. The manual says to consult a qualified BMW blah blah . . . . Can this be done by the user?

Thx!

Scott

I had done the 10,000K (6000mile) service myself, got the BMW shop to reset the SERVICE thingamajiggy on the BMW computer, he could only set it to a max of 6000 miles (or was it 10,000 miles??) from the mileage currently on the bike however ... I wanted him to try to set it for like 80,000 miles in the future ... but no can do ...
BMW Diagnostic will not do that (yet) ...they have a new computer coming soon to the shop ... hopefully this will be able to be done by then on the new computer system.

I also got him to set it to Imperial gallons (which I understand better then liters' per 100km bullshit) ....
but left degrees in celcius ... etc etc ... and set my tire monitors to PSI instead of the BAR system ... again .. .which means nothing to my brain

You can reset the service indicator to the date or miles of your choice with a GS-911. Not even the dealer's GT1 does that (at this time).

Find a buddy local to you who has the "professional" version. Or get your own. You probably saved enough on your first service to offset the cost.

Cheers,

Definitely worth the cost for the GS911. If you buy your own it is under $300, and will be useful for years to come. It has 10 individual bike registrations, whereas the professional version is unlimited. Same capabilities though!

Gs911

So the GS-911 is needed if you plan to service your R1200GS?

Not unless you want to shut off your service engine notification, and only on the 08+ bikes.

Is there no other way to reset this thing? I was just fixing to post this question, when I came across this thread...........can you not disconnect the battery like I can on my pickup, for a reset?

How many people here have tried the GS-911? And is it worth it?

So Jim, please explain. If you have an 08 or newer to get rid of the service note on the panel, all you need to do is disconnect your battery and that will cancel it until the next noral service or what? Thanks in advance.

I think he is saying you need the GS911 if you want to shut it off...unplugging the battery does not work. Or you can just learn to ignore it...afterall the font is small. I will be putting the GS911 on my Xmas list as I would like to do other things as well and at the same time thumb my nose at the shoddy flat rate shop wrenches (not all but many.)

He bought this bike with his own money as a "fixer upper" that he can ride and learn to wrench on. Part of owning is he will buy parts and wrench on it himself. We are going through it together and having fun! I am very proud of the young man he is becoming.

What happens if an owner performs maintenance himself without restring? Can BMW use it to deny warranty repairs?
Do 2007 and older bikes have a service reminder?
