    S1000XR 2020 FAULT IN ENGINE CONTROL

    So - today I finally get out on my July 2020 S1000XR
    Normally I do 26k a year on GSA  - but due to the world of change we all have hope I can now do 12k on a more fun bike that is better for Hampshire to London commute.
    Went out today with my youngest son on his 7 year old GSXR and 40 miles in I get this message:
    Fault in engine control .  Onward journey possible Ride carefully to next specialist workshop.

    Has anyone else had this?

    Pretty sure others have had this, though not sure on the XR). My wife had similar shortly after picking up her R1250GS, message went away on restart and she has not seen it since. She did take it to the dealer but they could not find anything.

    I was hoping mine would go away overnight but it has not
    Very annoying - beautiful day - Eldest boy discivered puncture this morning on his bike, so 2 out of 4 us due out today nothing to ride

    My GSA used to come up with these messages but it would always go away after hard turn off/on

    Very annoying

    It is frustrating not being allowed out on the bike, for sure.  Traded my HP4 in for a new 2020 RR M Sport in January... had enough sane weather to have just about run it in by March.  Then had last ride on 16th march before 3 months lockdown.  Swapped it for the substitute for my long-awaited 2020 XR in August.  Ran the XR in over 2 weeks, had a few weeks of being allowed to ride (albeit under a stay 'local' for a few weeks), yay, and then the last ride on 22 October, before multiple ongoing lockdowns.  We are still under stay-at-home order in Wales, so no riding without a valid 'excuse' for being out.  Hope to be out before the first MOT is due.  It must be nice being allowed out on bikes in the current weather.

    If I were allowed out on the bike, and it was a new one under warranty, then I would speak with the dealer straight away and get it booked in to be sorted.  If it is a simple fix, they may well tell you over the phone anyway, and being that the bike should be under warranty, I don't see why the nearest Motorrad dealer is not your first port of call... short of opening hours.  Good luck with it! :)

    Oh its booked in to local BMW dealer for tomorrow - which  is only 6 miles away - they couldn't help on phone  and said use BMW assistance if it says DO NOT RIDE !
    Also added that they can't look at it until later in the week and can't lend me anything (which if u book for service they always can but 4-6 weeks lead time on services)
    My 5th BMW from them - bet you get better service than that in Wales?

    That's the problem with having so much demand without trying in the home counties.
    They got rid of the old school people that used to work there back in the day BMW only had a few models - they used to bend over backwards.

    My last GSA (number 3) gearbox went at 54k still under warranty and BMW wouldn't fix it - £1200 later - box went again 3k later - so traded it in for S1000XR as last 2 GSA's did 60k each without a murmur - but they didn't have Gear assist - even though I never used it on the last one.
    I wanted to see how an S1000XR coped with my commute - but of course i haven't had to do it since I bought it so it has done very little mileage.
    Honestly there were so many bikes out today - really hard to believe there is any lockdown - we live near dual carriageway and it sounds like the IOM TT today !

    Did you lose throttle response when the error message popped up?



    It came up after my first service.  It would go away briefly when I cycled the ignition but kept coming back. Apparently that error message is just a generic fault message that could be caused by a variety of reasons. In my case the dealer couldn't find the cause and after 6 weeks (and several failed attempts) of trying they had to go to BMW Canada. BMW Canada eventually told them to replace the entire throttle body, but didn't explain why.  First error message appeared Oct. 15 and I didn't get my bike back until Jan 14!  It's the middle of winter now so I've only been out on a few short rides and really had the chance to test if it is truly fixed.
    Seriously hope it is something simple!
    I plan to live forever.  So far, so good!

    Yes - it did go into "limp" mode i seems certainly not full power - I was very careful on way back - I am not going to cope with no bike for that long - poor you - didn't they offer you a loan bike?
    If its throttle linkage replacement did that curie it for good!

    Haven’t got over 26k a year  :005:

    The only option out there...

    Be at the mercy of the dealer.

    Buy a GS-911WIFI

    More years ago than I care to think about had a similar learning curve and requirement and realised their was a difference between what  I needed/wanted and it had Made in Japan stamped on it for next 25 years.

    Must have been late 80’s early 90’s wife says ‘We really could do with a second bike will make for a less complicated life’ so we did and it did.

    Re the bikes yesterday yep...and there’s me concerned about getting pinged off in the van taking my KTM to a dealer 40 miles away.

    Hope you get sorted soon.
