Turn Off Electronic Service Reminder?

My 08 GS display (RID) tell me to "Service in XXX miles" when I start it up. I do my own services and just serviced the bike for it's 6000 mile service. How do you turn off or reset the service reminder? Please tell me I dont have to go to a dealer for that....that would suck!

Thanks,

You have to go to the dealer.

So far no one has discovered how to turn it off without the dealer, though the GS-911 guys think they have it, and will possibly be coming out with it very soon.

Called Irv Seaver BMW in Orange CA today and they wanted to zing me 1/2 hour labor to turn it off (screw them). Then called Long Beach BMW and they said they'd do it for free (:)). FYI

I had to pay an extra $10 for the reset at Brown's in Pomona when I was getting my 12K service done. The service manager told me he sent an e-mail to corporate to ask why the extra charge, when they are already into the computer to check fault codes anyway. I will ask him if they responded next time I see him, otherwise I can live with the reminder (its very small).

that sounds odd - you had to pay extra when you had your bike serviced at the dealer - I thought it was part of the service schedule and therefore should be included in the standard price

Does

Does it just give a milage alert or does the stupid yellow triangle come on and stay on??? If it is just a milage flash I may keep it to remind how much I'm saving on service by doing it myself!

Mine didn't pop up the triangle - just puts the word service in the bottom of the screen. If service is coming up - it does a mileage countdown next to it.

If we're going to get into this service reminder stuff, how about something useful, such as onboard oil analysis minder... they have it on their cars. It gives you a countdown to your next oil change depending on your driving style and conditions.

Isn't the next service reminder basically a 10,000km (6k miles) countdown to the next service interval? It's not like it's hard to keep track of it.

On BMW cars you can also reset the oil and inspection lights by jumpering two paricular pins on the diagnostics port, very likely the same with their bikes.

Thats what I thought, before I looked at the receipt. I love my bike and really like my service dealer (not to be confused with my purchase dealer), so I'll consider that their gratuity

Seems silly that a usefull item can not be reset by the owner. Especially something a simple as an oil change reminder.

Reset on the Tundra PU is simple. Push odom button while turning the key.

My 09 GSA counts down both miles and calender (if I am reading the Germlish correctly). I wonder if it is "months remaining" or actually based on miles/km's?

Service Reminder Resets - No Problem ! ...We're just adding some other useful features like Idle Actuator calibration and BrakePadWear indicator resetting (for the GT guys) etc... Public Beta should be available early December.

best,
Stephan

When do you get the first notice ?

Just changed my oil for the second time at 5K miles. I have not had any service notice yet. When does the first one pop up. My dealer did first service at 1100 miles.

At the first service of a new bike the dealer registers in the bike the date and the mileage of the service. Reminder pops up after one year or if you go past a certain mileage before the year is up. By memory that mileage is 6000 for the R series, 12.000 for F series and K1200LT, and 18.000 for new style K bikes.
