Lap Timer

Hi, I have not looked at the manual recently, but I want to know my lap times at the next track day and I don't know how the S1000 supports the process.

If I am supposed to trip the timer each time around? If so, that is pretty rough. I also noted the 2012 has some "best lap" light, which I have not used either.

Does the track usually have some wireless signal that my bike (with an add on part?) would receive and monitor wirelessly? How do you do this?

Thanks

Andy

I have one for sale. Changed my mind about using the bike as a track bike. $350 for both. Pm me if you are interested. Just plugs in on the right side of the bike.

You could get something like an AIM SOLO GPS laptimer, doesn't use the BMW laptimer at all though. But also doesn't need a trackside transmitter.

I'm pretty sure you're correct... at least that's what I've been told and have heard --> http://www.s1000rrforum.com/forum/bm...lap-timer.html

Works with my stock bmw dash. Look at the right side where all the wires come out of the frame. It plugs in the black plug.
