I already have a GS911 and I don't have a BMW/OBD 2 connecting cable.
As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everybody is impossible, but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake.

Saw this in eBay that should fit the bill.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Black-10-Pin-OBD2-Diagnostic-Adaptor-Fit-for-BMW-Motorcycle-ICOM-D-Cable/173366000218?hash=item285d6b3a5a:g:UDsAAOSw~BhbI3mW:rk:1:pf:0

Says it will work with one of those bluetooth ODBII adapters also available for pennies & the Torque app for your phone.

Might give it a try when i've got nothing better to do, which will be after Christmas now.

The MotoScan chaps say the BAFX unit I have doesn't support the long messages required to reset the date of the service, but it will read and clear trouble codes. So a mixed bag for a mixed price. I've asked if the BAFX will reset the service light.


The Motoscan app guy came back, and said buy one of these units for guaranteed support of service light resetting:

'OBDLink LX and UniCarScan UCSI-2000'

Motoscan are very helpful. I may well support them with a Christmas purchase.

Just remember they're both Bluetooth units, so its Android only (or Windows of course).
Folks with iPhone/iPads will need this OBDLink version with WiFi. Twice the price, but hey, you're happy paying over the odds for your hardware.  ;D ;D ;D

Couldn't people that own a GS911 reset it, we're on the map

What you're saying is your next door, willing and able?:
KTM AL Location:: Southwater West Sussex Blighty
Blobby Location:: Uckfield, East Sussex

It may be a struggle for relative newcomers to work the system, so...:

Sorry for the delay, i have been busy with work etc.. But yes anyone wants a quick reset of a diagnostic check up from the neck up then pop on by.. As long as i don't lose all of my lives or whatever they allow before i need to buy the pro version
