removing the rev limiter at the 600 mile service

Anyone have done their 600 mile service yet?
I met a guy at chuckwalla and he said that when he took the bike to the dealer for the 600 mile service, the software that BMW has a bug connecting to the database so they couldn't remove the rev limiter.

Yeah - he was at the track bumping against the limiter all day long!!! Poor guy!!!

He said that no HP4's will be able to remove the limiter until BMW fixes that issue.

Thoughts?

Now I'm in no rush to put on the 600 miles, otherwise, I'd leave tomorrow at 7am and hit up some mountain roads all freaggin day and make my final stop at 5pm at the dealer with 601 miles hahahaha!!!

I have 420 miles now...

When I hit 600 miles I'll be connecting my gs-911 tool and let you know if I had issues.

If I'm lucky maybe by the end of the weekend we'll know.

I've read somewhere that the computer won't even let the dealer do it before then.

Last I knew using the GS-911 you could remove the limit at like 312 miles. Was able to do it on my friends 2011 anyways. I'd think the newer bikes wouldn't be any different.

Mine was taken off with 300 miles, I ask the dealer the manager is a friend so he got it done for me

YEP! Grew up in Virgil, NY. Small world.

Connect your GS-911 and go into the remove rev limiter section. It should show the mileage that you can remove it at. If you are over 312 I bet you are good to go.

You were spot ON!..

Only issue was at first when I went to remove the limiter the GS-911 didnt want to accept my VIN (first time using it) - I'd go to add the VIN but every time it would show 0 VINs and ask me again- do I want to add one.

So I backed out. Went to the section to set the Date for the bike.
It again asked me if i wanted to use one of my 10 allowable VIN usages.
I said yes add and IT DID add the VIN here.

So then I went back to Engine section and removed the Rev Limiter - No issues!!

So now I'm free to REV- Thanks MOMAN!
312 miles is the magical number!
