Because they're BMW.

You don't need a software update, just need a cable that comes with a resistor, it is oem equipment, ask you dealer for it, you bike will never alert you about lamp failure.

The $26 cable that you speak of is part # 71607711284 which is for pre-08 models that did not have the LED Turn Indicator selection in the ISTA/P menu.

Although the cable would be one way to make the system work, ideally the software update would be the way to go in my opinion.

I heard that it is not the size of the LEDs, but the length of the front stems. Our DOT wants the front lights wider. And yes I had them on my 2010 GS and I have them on my wet head. Also waiting for the down load.

So 4 $26 cables required? No thanks, I'll wait for the software update.

No, it's not a cable and resistor issue. The computer in the new bike controls the blinkers. The Euro bikes don't have a resistor to function. It's handled by the computer.

In theory, a very cheap resistor could likely be spliced in line and probably fix the issue, but a resistor is nothing more than something turning the electricity into heat. It's old tech. Recent BMWs do have the ability to fix the issue of the lamp warning via the computer update, but the software hasn't been made available for the GSW yet. It's nothing more than changing the option in the computer.

Anyone that has upgraded to the LEDs on their GSW want to sell me their stock rear turn signals?
