Help please
on: January 30, 2021, 12:03:43 PM
When I start riding everything is fine but after I have gone quite quick, the riding light on the dash starts flashing, the abs light comes on and goes off , occasionally I loose the range remaining and fuel bars and worst , the suspension sets itself to really firm
Any ideas

Suggest dealers sound like dash is faulty
Live for today tomorrow may never come.

check the battery terminals and get the battery tested.

Not saying its the same thing but I had an issue with the fuel gauge not resetting on refuelling and an engine warning light keeping coming on. My local dealer Pidcock were pretty useless and had the bike in about 4 times, resetting the error codes each time which fixed it for about a day. Mine was out of warranty so for them to fix it was going to require them to have the bike indefinitely and let an electrician properly evaluate it at £££ per hour.

Long story short, I bought a GS911 so I could at least reset the codes myself and discovered a recurring side stand stick error that kept coming back. I traced the wire from the side stand switch and discovered it was pinched behind the sprocket cover and had damaged insulation. I fixed the insulation and everything was fine.

I guess my thought is that if you have no luck with BMW then something like a GS911 is maybe a worthwhile investment and help you diagnose whats going on. The home one supports 8 VIN codes so would work on any other or future BMW bikes you might own too

this - seems to happen on this bike more than others. I really don't think the battery retaining thing is robust enough to stop the battery vibrating.
