Is this the update to save the drive shaft? I am wondering if they are just using a limiter on how fast the drive shaft can spin at any given time/gear?I got the latest Bike update (R1250RT 22 which was a recall) and now my 4 buttons don't work. The settings still have them correctly but nothing when pressed.
Took it back to the dealer and they checked it and said it is showing errors.
THey communicated with the mothership and they said "resintal (which they did) and then do something else and if that doesn't work replace the buttons unit." WTF???
The thing that bugs me is we pay good money for a service and they don't even do a check before finalising.
Yeah they ride the bike but obviously they don't check the detail. Surely they must have seen the error codes when they installed??
Now it's my time and money so they can find the problem.
If it wasn't such a great bike I'd give up. I get things happen but surely the dealer service should be on top of final checks.
I know they are equally frustrated with BMW but no excuse for basic care and attention.
I dont understand how a software update can save a mechanical failure unless it is limiting or timing something differently?
It obviously involves the riding modes if your ride mode buttons do not work any longer.
I hope you get it squared away. Let us know how you make out with it.
