Dont have the user manual in front of me, but if I remember right the frist service is reccomended between 350 - 750 miles which the dealer would remove the 9K rev limiter.

Up Up, Down Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A, Start

Look Jimmy, here's the deal. You believe your buddy, but I think your anonymous buddy is ignorant of what the facts are, and in your effort to defend him, you aren't believing what a lot of riders who have been here are telling you. Ask your buddy when he bought his 2010, and/or what the build date is. I think he has fooled himself into thinking by setting the shift light he got rid of an imaginary limiter.

Actually read the pages he referred you to, then come back and tell us all those pages tell you how to remove an engine rev limit.

Here are the facts as I know them.

Between December 2009 and February 2010 these bikes did not come from the factory with any pre-set break-in rev limiter. I know, I have one of those. And I'm not going to tell you or anybody else on this forum that I DID IT BY SCREWING AROUND WITH THE SHIFT LIGHT SETUP. I didn't. It came that way.

In February 2010, BMW had its dealers set a 9K limit on bikes they had in inventory, and the factory started shipping the bikes with the break-in rev limit set. Supposedly this was to protect the engines to make sure they were broken in the way BMW thinks is best. It really doesn't matter what anybody's opinion is about alternate break-in methods, but that's the direction BMW took, and they haven't changed their point of view in the last 4 years. Personally, I don't blame them, it's their 3-year warranty they are protecting in the USA and a few other countries.

Type "rev limiter" in the search function, then go to the last pages of all - back in 2010. Here are a few old posts for you new guys. Please notice, even the GS-911 tool guys took a couple of years to add that function.

http://www.s1000rrforum.com/forum/s1...ine-break.html
(February, 2010) - Dan Kyle and others discuss break-in methods on unrestricted engines. Its a good read. When you get to post #37 (2/18/10) pay attention to the announcement of the restriction being put on.

Bewildered and RESTRICTED!!!
(November, 2010) GS-911 still doesn't remove limiter

new to this, 7k limiter?
(August, 2011) GS-911 now removes limiter

Hope this helps resolve this for you. Share it with your buddy if he still believes he removed the limiter himself. IMHO, I believe all he did was bump up the shift light RPM.
