Service Warning Reset

Recommended Posts

Shelterwoods

I am one week new to BMW's, and my R1250RS in particular. I would like to know how to turn off or reset service warnings. I have scheduled a first service in about 5 days, but I have a service warning for that service that keeps showing up. I can make the warning dialog disappear, but it shows up each time I start the bike, and there is a warning triangle on the dashboard screen.

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

You need a device.  GS911 and Motoscan are the most popular.  You can search those on here...

Yep, you are stuck with that until you get your service done...or you override it with the kit 92Merc spoke of. 

Me...i can live with it!

Where is the OBD connection, under the rider or pillion seat? I have a scan tool already, if I have an adapter, will a typical Snap-on tool work?

Only if you're scan tool covers BMW Motorcycles, if not specifically called out, likely it won't do anything.

 

Only GS911's and the Motoscan app are what I hear works,.....and the Motoscan app DOES work.

On my 16 RS the connection is on the right side under the side cover for the battery access. The 1250RS has an OBD2 connector just like a car. I do not believe that the Snap on tool will work to reset the service light, the GS911 or Motoscan will be required.
