Service Reminder

The service reminder has been showing on my instrument cluster for about the last four months.

I chatted with the service manager at our local dealership the other day and he told me that the reminder was calendar based.
Today I went into the setup mode and set the date back two years, voila, the reminder disappeared!

That's like putting a smily face sticker to cover your car's 'check engine' light. Or, as we say in Holland, "sticking your head in the sand".

The better solution is to either get the service done or do it yourself and then re-setting the service loght with the MotoScan app and ELM or OBDLink bluetooth scanner.

no, you just need to eliminate it with the MotoScan application. you can get it on you mobile, but need a bluetooth connector. that reminder is simply annoying. I do service when I feel it is right, and don't need to see that stupid reminder on my dashboard

as you love riding, you need to love you bike

Yeah, I'd rather have the dashboard reminder than having to rely on some other 'method' of reminding me when it was time.

I change engine oil very often. i am certainly not going to wait for 10000km to change the oil. this is just not good for the bike. when I got the bike, the service reminder was just very annoying.

Hi Kris, on the topic of oil change interval, I agree 10,000km is long, however, it is not exactly what BMW recommends.
If you read correctly in the owner's manual Maintenance Schedule it is every 10,000 km OR every year, whichever comes first.

Heap, yes I know. still I find it annoying this service reminder which in gs is very aggressive. at least in my bike, each time I started the bike before all the dashboard lit up, a message came 'you have 800km to the next service', and only after, around 30 second it was going away. In fact I thought that something is wrong with the bike. I am adult and I like to determine myself when I should service the bike next time, not just because BMW wants to rip me off by forcing to do service. anyway, with MotoScan I have eliminated this problem.

Hi Kris! There are many like me who has these doubts, 1. Which type OBD reader are you using? 2. What kind of cable adaptor is required? Can you pls share the purchase links. And finally apart from MotoScan is there any other app we can use with this OBD reader.
