CONFIRMATION - CIP 7.0 has been released

I've only posted the K-Series information. If you want to know about hte R-Series motorcycles, let me know.

K-Series (K4x) motorcycles:

General modifications, applicable to all models in this Series:

Improved "gear recognition" function:
  • clears the "intermittent errors in the gear indicator" or "incorrect gear readings in the instrument cluster" symptoms
  • through the reduction of the adaptation times, which improves the recognition function
Improved damping during load change and metering (even below 2,500 rpm):
  • generally improved ridability; as a side effect, it should be noted that the damping affect after a load change is indicated briefly by a low resonant tone in the silencer.
  • engine picks up again more smoothly and comfortably after coasting with the throttle valve closed(fuel delivery cut off); as a secondary effect, a brief, muted, churning noise maybe audible in the silencer.
IMPORTANT: this update changes the ridability of the vehicle noticeably
and should only be programmed with the agreement of BMW Motorrad
Technical Support and of the customer. Reprogramming back to the previous software version is not possible!

Improved actuation of the “throttle valve stop”:
  • clears the "loss in power output" and/or the “throttle valve not reaching its fully open position”. This was due to the “throttle valve stop” not returning to its correct “zero” position when the ignition is switched “off”. The new software corrects this symptom through modification of the initialization of the “throttle valve stop”.
ATTENTION: replacing the stepper motor in the event of the above symptoms does not provide a solution.

Improved cold starts at temperatures below 50°F / 10°C :
  • clears the "starting problem at low ambient temperatures" and/or "engine is starved until it cuts out" symptoms.
Power optimization at high altitude:
  • clears the "lack of power at high altitude" symptom.
Additional, model-related functions:

K 1200 GT (K44) - ridability modification:
  • noticeably improved ride at slow speeds and metering below 2,500 RPM.
  • clearly improved damping during load change.
  • generally improved ridability.
IMPORTANT: this update changes the ridability of the vehicle noticeably
and should only be programmed with the agreement of BMW Motorrad
Technical Support and of the customer. A reprogramming back to the previous software version is not possible!

Applies to R-Series and K-Series motorcycles:

General modifications, applies to all models:

Modification to the “switch-off” behavior of the on-board socket and accessories socket:
  • rectifies the following issues:
    • on-board socket and/or navigator switch off intermittently.
    • on-board socket and navigator switch off briefly when ignition is switched “On".
Modification to the horn “switch-off” behavior:
  • rectifies the following issue:
    • horn fails when activated continuously or when pressed briefly several times.
Additional, model-related functions:

Modification to fuel gauge on the following models:

- R 1200 GS and R 1200 GS Adventure (without board computer),
- R 1200 ST
- K 1200 S
- K 1200 R

rectifies the following issue:
  • fuel gauge does not display all bars when the tank is full. (only applies to motorcycles equipped with segmented instrument cluster)
Modification to the range remaining display on the following model:

Applies to R and K series motorcycles supplied with dot matrix instrument
clusters:

Improved contrast adjustment:

Corrects the following issue:
  • symbols and display are poorly visible in the instrument cluster
  • Possible to write the mileage reading when replacing the instrument cluster with a new unit.
Individualization of the instrument cluster:
R-series and K series motorcycles:
  • Tire pressure display unit
NOTE: Only possible in conjunction with option 530, "tire-pressure monitoring system"

Jeff,
Thanks for the info.

When will this at the dealers for to installation? Do you have a service number in case my dealer gives the "I don't know nothing about it " excuse?

I was at my dealer today. They just loaded 7.0 onto their GT-1 yesterday and it's available. I was in for tires today and didn't want to get the update right before a long trip. I'd rather go with what I already know than go with something that just showed up yesterday.

BTW, I've talked with several dealers since the announcement of 7.0. The concensus was that most dealers will charge for the update if you go in purely for the update. If you wait for the update at a major service interval (like a 600, 6K interval, or 12K interval), you would get the update at no charge.
