    2019 XR options

    I recently bought a used 2019 XR. Other than the obvious options that I can see, how do I tell what model it is and what options came on it? I have used a VIN decoder before but can't seem to find one that works anymore.
    Also, I'm not sure if the Dynamic Pro is activated or not. If I select it through the Modes button and it stays on Dynamic Pro setting, does that mean it's active? I guess I can look under the seat to see if I see the plug but thought I'd ask

    Cheers

    To be honest if you need to ask it isn’t working, because mine is like night and day, hence why I don’t think i’ve Done more than 5 miles in the other modes in the last 5 years, although I fairness mine is not remotely stock so even more fun.

    If it shows Dynamc Pro on the screen means(should)it’s active.

    I've literally put 100 miles on the bike since I got it. I've been trying to learn about the bike and haven't spent so much time in any particular mode. I just noticed that Dynamic Pro showed up as a choice but no idea if the PO activated it. If I understand correctly, the Dynamic Pro mode changes ABS and DTC settings so there's less intervention but not sure how you'd tell the difference unless at the track or pushing the limits on the street. Am I wrong?

    Never noticed the difference with ABS or DTC, for me the difference in how the motor responds, add a filter, full Akra system,PC and it runs very well, but even then in Pro it will run well down to 25mph in 6th and pull as clean as a whistle from that speed 2 up.

    If Dynamic Pro comes up as an option, you have the dongle, it's on the left hand side of the bike under the seat just a little forward from the battery, biggest tell-tale sign is that you can wheelie without intervention even with DTC on.
    Apart from that you don't really need to be pushing the limit to see if it works, it's a fairly substantial change once you're used to the bike. Power and throttle response are identical to Dynamic though so you won't feel a difference there. As for ABS it's a rather marked difference, especially on a wet road, DP lets it get all sorts of squiggly, then again BMW specifically state DP is completely unsuitable for wet roads. Have a look in the manual for details for each riding mode.

    As for what options you have on the bike I'd contact the dealer of origin from the paperwork, where the bike was initially sold from, they can have a look at all the options for you based on Reg or VIN  :028:

    As it’s highly unlikely i’ll Be buying a gen 2, not sure if it’s the same situation, but I didn’t get my dongle for the pro on my gen1 till the first service.

    Thanks, all. I do need to log a few more miles to get a feel for the bike and the various ride modes and suspension settings which seem to be different from my K1600 and even my K1200S. From what I can tell so far, I have a Road and Dynamic setting for suspension. On previous bikes, I had Normal, Sport, and Comfort. Unfortunately, the bike didn't come with a manual but I downloaded one last night and need to spend some time going through it.

    Winger, as tempted as I am to start the mod process, I'm waiting a bit to see what it's like first. It's raining here in the northeast US for much of this week and it's all I can do to stay off the accessory sites! With my Multistrada, I added a full Termi system, ECU programming software, filter, etc over the course of a couple of years.

    Antares, that's a good idea about contacting the dealer. They were the same ones that sold the bike to the original owner.

    Road and dynamic is all there is for D-ESA, aka "hard" and "rock hard"  :008: Compared to a mate's K1200R it's a vastly superior system, but still far from perfect. It works well for this bike but doesn't yield a lot of adjustability, The biggest difference between settings I've felt so far was on a 2020 Multistrada 1260 Enduro. It's a major difference between settings both front and rear, however the XR still handles better even if the multi is hopped up to it's sportiest setting.

    Strangely enough I still have my K1200r Sport went exactly the same route as the X/R as both have non electric sus, and both are run on Wilbers, I haven’t sold a bike in over 20 years hence way too many in the garage but i’ve Always viewed the X/R as the best starting point I have ever had on a bike, looking at your Multi history i’m Preaching too the converted...the only problem I have is the new 17” wheeled Pikes Peak Multi for next year.....
