    Hi, welcome, it should be a red dongle on the left hand side of the ABS pump when looking at the front of the bike behind the 2 big green box fuses. Looks sort of like a USB plug. It should be given with the bike for free, or most previous owners just have it plugged in but if not, BMW sells them for like 30 quid and I think there is even some home made solutions using resistors that do the same job.

    Wish many fun filled miles with the dongle of doom!

    Welcome

    Dynamic pro plug in the picture from this post https://www.s1000xr.uk/index.php/topic,4274.msg38469.html#msg38469



    If the plug is already installed you will have Dynamic Pro show on the screen when you press the Mode button

    Thanks guys,

    Now for the next items on my list….a service manual and possibly photos of the position of the forks in the triple tree…the previous owner lowered the front and I want to bring it back to factory….the bike has the dynamic ESA forks…
