Had a similar issue early on my 2015 xr. There was a way to recalibrate idle using a sequence of inputs. Was so long ago I cannot recall the details. My bike has been good on cold startup since. Search unsuccessful. Maybe was on the now defunct US forum. Not much help but just an idea.

Don't know if 2020 has this option...but l suspect it would. The GS-911 can do it on the Gen-1...but they don't have the Gen-2 listed on their compatibility list yet.

Bought a 20 XR, haven’t received from dealer yet, but too hot to ride in AZ right now anyway. Hope to learn and contribute! Joe

Could be Smithy, I’ll give it a another tank of fuel and see what happens.

Yeah the rev limiter was definitely locked but also it stopped you selecting "Dynamic Pro" mode, which according to the manual gives you max torque in the lower gears. Not that I’ll even use it haha. The bike awesome in road or dynamic modes.

Not sure Dart but it might be a possibility. I noticed a real change in the cold starts and idle after the bike had its initial service, apparently they unlock the ecu which gives you the all the power. Hey I'm just hoping it's a fuel thing, apart from that bike is bloody brilliant.

All they really do is shift the rev limiter from 9k rpm to 12k rpm. They don't unlock it as such.

I'm wondering with the Euro-5 specs it might be way too lean until warm..??

seems to be a very plausible explanation!

I did buy the rad and oil guards from BMW   this time and they came fitted
I had both on my 2015 XR but they were of course after mkt - these are  all BMW and very subtle
I bought the spotlights too - love the colour - I hated it on test ride - but at 56 whought Red too ra dical and no MOto option - but absolutely love it now - especially with black luggage - will post pic tomorrow
I have been playing with TFT system (first for me) Love it so far - only bad thing about bike so far -not sure about rear lights being integrated into indicators being enough for safe commute
I am crashing soon - so I can take it out at 430am tomorrow for the Loomies run on A272 as I live very near it & a bit of a loop around the south downs roads before the masses ruin it all with Sunday drivings - etc  and I need a bloody break as last 3 months been hell!
Will report back and maybe some photos
I hope you get yours soon!

I agree on the rear lights. Not sure how BMW got it passed by the USA DOT. My friend following me said it was strange not having a center light. He also said they were not that much brighter than the stoplights. Clearwater lights makes great lights $$$$ they have a brake light that attaches to the plate. I may look into this. The canopener taps the canbus on the BMW.  If I change out the running lights I may do the brake light too.

Hi Gus,

I have had the  2020 S1000XR for about a month now, it's had the initial 1000km service and now has 1,700km on the clock. The cold starts are getting increasingly rough and on some occasions there are small engine misses till the temp goes up. I'm hoping it might be a case of dodgy fuel which is easily fixed, otherwise I'm off to the dealer fro some answers.Cheers Ray
