Removing new bike rev-limiter

I friend of mine told me you don't need to have the dealer remove the revlimiter
He said that it can be done on the dash and the owners manual shows you how without having to take it to the BMW any one else has done this?

WRONG! The dash only allows you to change the shift light. The rev limiter must be removed by either the dealer or with a GS-911 tool but only after a minimum of around 350 miles.

This is a limiter programmed in to the ECU.

Awesome. So have him show you how to do it. Everyone will wait for you to post the How To Vid.

Don't hold your breath anybody. It isn't going to happen. Listen to the_gooch. The friend has given our new guy bad advise.

No where in the owner's handbook will it tell you how to remove the rev limiter - as in keeping the engine from running higher than set in the ECU.

The owner's manual will tell you how to change characteristics of the shift light.

Let's see, ... left, right, left, right, A, B, A, left, left, ...

On the street - 2/5/10.

I heard the new models allow you to change target A/F ratio using the stock lambdas. My buddy told me so.

Invincibility and infinite ammo, don't forget. Even with the GS911 you need a bunch of miles on it can't remember how many, or it won't let you remove the limiter. Why ask for trouble, run it for the first 600 miles and get the dealer to do it. You're only asking for warranty issues down the line if you don't.

Hey Gooch, that program has to be done for each gear don't forget.
