Now copy it to iBooks on your iphone and take the printed copy off the bike so you have more space under the pillion seat for other stuff

Had déjà vu on this post!

...and also iBooks allows you to bookmark important pages. Shame they didn't offer the manuals in ebook format so users could annotate items as well.

2014 manual should be out imminently, presumably with minor changes to reflect standard road/rain modes and ASC, and possibly making mention of the new steering damper.

Rev 4 (shown on the back cover) is the right one for 2014 models. It should be the only one from the BMW site now.

Thumb Thanks!

I wonder what the differences between the US and European GS models are.

Anyone know? Left hand drive? I bought a GSA in Switzerland.

Anyway, thanks for the manual!

Where to put manual? Onboard computer pro?

I went thru the manual yesterday and have a few ?s

Where under the seat does the manual go, I took off both seats and could not find a spot even while looking at the manual ref? so for now its in the tank bag.


With on board computer pro it seems like some of the things they say it displays are missing...e.g. avg speed, the countdown clock

How do you get the on board computer pro to display to show the oil levels, I know to just look at the site gauge which I do b4 taking off but when the display for oil comes up in the computer it just reads blank while moving, while stopped in gear and in neutral ext...

Don't know WHERE your PHYSICAL manual goes...BUT...

you can take a copy of the PDF of the manual and store it on your PHONE/TABLET...or even a USB drive?

OR...store it on the CLOUD at OneDrive?

Page 17 of my manual shows a diagram of where the physical manual is stored...it's not attached to the seat but rather in the area under the pillion seat.
