Shift light in 5th gear about 6500 RPM's?
« on: February 17, 2017, 03:08:22 AM »
Anyone tell me why it is coming on so low in the rev range?  This is in Road mode.  I am yet to find a place on my commute traffic free enough to take the bike up too much more in the RPM range, but does your shift light come on at 6500 RPM in 5th?  I mean that must be like 80 or 85 MPH.  Not that fast on that bike at all.  Got the red plug in and have dynamic pro too but I need some wide open spaces to explore that part of this beast.  Thanks.  Yes, MPH, not KMH.

You can set it at whatever RPM you like. It is covered in the owners manual. In my book its on page 60.

After the first service "600miles" I got the Pro Dynamic Chip installed and the shift light moved to 10500 works a treat but yes it is in the handbook or swing by you're BMW centre and they'll sort it I'm sure.
Also you can just ignore it a bit of black tape  :745: sorry :038:
After over thirty years behind the bars, I’ve still not done it all or seen it all.

If you go into set up as explained in the manual you can change the setting for the light to flash - mine is set to 9000 rpm
