Only R1200GS Question: How to switch off ABS

Hello,

I do have questions specific and only to the BMW R1200GS!

How do I switch off ABS and switch on ABS while I am riding? I tried to analyze the process, but might be wrong and do have questions in detail:

Switch off ABS

- Stop the motorbike.
- Switch ignition off.
- Press ABS-button for at least 3 seconds, und then start the engine.
(Q: Do I need to hold the button still when starting the engine?).

- Wait until the end of the self diagnostic test.
(Q: How many seconds exyctly does this self diagnotic test take?)
- Result: ABS ist switched off, servos are in function, red ABS warnning light is on.

Switch on ABS

- Stop the motorbike.
- Switch ignition off.
- Start engine.
- Wait until the end of the self diagnostic test.
(Q: How many seconds exyctly does this self diagnotic test take?)
- Result: ABS ist switched on, servos are in function.


OH

Are you serious?

Good idea. Start another brake thread in case the others die down

Why would you want to know how to turn off the ABS on a R12GS? Are you saying you have an R12GS? If you do, you should sell it right away before your ABS / servos fail

It figures that you do not know how to turn off the ABS, because you know so little about bikes in general. Otherwise you would know that an R12GS can be easily stopped with complete ABS and servo failure. Its simple, you just pull on the lever.

Just in case you actually do have an R12GS and your question is actually serious. All you have to do is hold the ABS button while you turn on the key until the bike has gone through its start up check. Start the bike and the ABS will be off. To get it back just turn off the bike and start it normally.

Really, is there NOT ONE of you that could help my with my little question?

How many seconds does the start up check on the BMW R1200GS exactly take? I mean, all I want to know is, how long does it take, bevore I can do my ride, and how long does it take to witch ABS on/off.

I have to stop. Ich have to witch ignition off. I have to press ABS-Button. And then, I have to wait for the start up check. How long does this start up check really take?

From my knowledge it was something about 5 seconds when I tested the bike, could pleas someone tell me the empirical data? please?

OH

Ophra,

If you really had one of these bikes, you would know what you are talking about. Quit trolling, dumbass.

Too funny.


FWIW, I sometime opt to start my 12Gs before the POST has completed. As best I can tell there have been no ill effects (for me). I have seen some cautions about not letting POST complete and about pulling the break lever etc., duing the POST, but I also find that all is fine when I do this, at least once I start the bike. I have never had a fast-flash ABS error as a reult of starting the bike/pulling break lever during POST.

Perhaps being able to disable ABS that much faster will bring OH back to the BMW marque. ;)

In that case, it takes 45 seconds to run through the self test and then you have to stand on your head for another 5 minutes while chanting "All BMW products are REAL great!". Then and ONLY then are you allowed to ride your R12GS with the ABS disabled. You CANNOT disable the life threatening servo...

Well boys, OH's question is the kinda stuff we do best here, answer people's tech questions.

His was a fair question, and if I had a 1200 GS I would answer it for him.

Sorry, but I don't uderstand the need for the anger and jabs at him
