The latest fashion is to go on eBay put GS911 and find someone with a pro who will do it for £25 ish or buy one.

Looks like BMW_XR_D pays 35.00 at the stealers:

You can either buy your own GS-911 or a special OBD-link unit and Motoscan and do it yourself......or pay your local dealer to do it for you. If you do your own servicing like some of us do....You'll soon get tired of taking your pride and joy to a dealer and pay through the nose to get 2mins worth of work to remove a silly service light...😉😉

I JUST got off the phone with my dealer regarding an indicated annual service warning.

“What kind of bike?” he asks.

“S1000XR,” I reply.

“Have you changed the oil?”

“Last Fall, before storing it.”

“You do it yourself?”

“Yes,” I said cautiously.

“Eh. Live with the light,” he replied. “It costs $20 for us to reset it, or we can reset it at no cost if we do an oil change. Call us when your odometer hits 6000 miles, and we’ll just reset it at your next interval inspection.”

So, either way, about $20-$50 to reset based ono other services done.

Just buy a GS911. It is a very handy tool to have.

I just got of the phone to my Dealer, explained what I wanted. Bloke did not have a clue what I was talking about... :430:  Wrong Dealer.

You must have called KTM.

I ended up splitting the cost of this tool with some friends yesterday; we'll pass it around as needed.  Too expensive for a single chap to afford.  :006:

But, yes, this is the solution.
