    Hi, can anyone help please!

    The Yellow General Warning light is ON, although there is no text as the the problem. No help from the Rider's Manual.

    In My Vehicle there is 1 Message, how can I reach this please and then delete!

    I too have a yellow service light on,[ no readout as to what it is!] Been lit for 1200 miles now with no indication or explanation.Would like to clear it without dealer involvement [3 week backlog!].

    Took the XR to the BMW dealer, it needs an update. Left bike with them for a day, all now sorted.

    You still haven't told us what model you have...Gen-1 or Gen-2..?? Or what was actually wrong with it.??

    You mean you've been riding around with the warning light on for 1200miles and don't know why..??

    Just get yourself Motoscan and an OBDLink MX/LX...or a GS-911 and do the diagnostic work or service light reset yourself.

    Sorry about the 1200 mile post: it was 120mi. coming back from holiday in south Fl.Lite came on at start of return trip,call to local dealer in hometown said 3 weeks before they would take service reservation.Will look into gs-911 diagnostic device -- appears they are available online.Looks to be a very usefull bit of kit!
