Where can I find this GS911 forum?

I don't use it too much but I am glad to own one, in all the trips that I do I know when my bike breaks down its going to be electrical based and the GS911 will help me get the fault codes and get help remotely

Eg. Central australia with no dealerships around for about 2,000km, only a sat phone and a gs911 to save the day

Well worth it in my opinion and I'm sure you could sell it later for next to no loss :)

I use mine to read codes, on my bikes and on other peoples, when we work on those.
I also use it to reset the service indicators, again on mines and others.
Only once did I use it on a breakdown, on the side of the mountain at La Rumorosa near Mexicali. It confirmed on my laptop computer that it was the fuel pump controller.

What is the LC-1 controller used for?

The innovate Motorsports LC-1 with Bosch Wideband O2 sensor let you program a richer mixture than you get with the stock (lean) O2 sensor.

A major benefit of the LC-1 in addition to program the mixture is that you can see how your motorcycle is running by logging the air-fuel ratio while you ride. It's like have a CAT scan on the bike.

cool...How do you get the training to know the correct stoichiometric ratio? And further does changing values inhibit the range the computer is able to control mixture for changing condition? ie: Altitude, humidity, temperature.

I've had one for a few years now. Hey are constantly improving them. It has been a great asset to my shop and has found problems for me. Not major ones but problems none the less. I keep my old cell phone for trip so it can communicate as i use an iphone all the time and it will not work. I have 2 bikes so really worth it for me. If you do not have the know how to fix the problems then probably not worth it.

I use an iPhone5. Interesting that your experience is that it doesn't work. Anyone know the reason why? I've found that most people can be trained to use nearly any piece of equipment and the associated tools if the desire to learn is present. I merely need a bit of training in the use of the device and the associated codes. Anyone doing a tech day on the GS911? Stephan?

IIRC it has something to do with Apple app store/creation process http://www.hexcode.co.za/products/gs...n-on-my-iphone

Love the iPhone, hating the proprietary software...

Still would like to see a GSA or even a BMW specific tech day Stephan! A webinar would be even be incredibly useful for most of us. Once everyone sees how easy it is to use I'd be willing to bet orders would increase substantially.
