CanBus - Power off timer

Hi Everyone,

First time posting here, but not new to forums.

I've had several Beemer's, and I recall when powering off the bike, that is, turning ignition key off, it starts an internal timer to power off the can bus accessories. That time has usually been in the 30 seconds range.

I have a 2010 K1300GT that does not power off the Canbus for about 5 minutes.

Anyone else experiencing this long delay whether on this bike or any other?

I just read on another post that if you have a battery powered gps, it confuses the can bus.
