What does GS-911 do?

What is it?

GS-911 is a unique software and hardware combination that allows the BMW enthusiast the ability to communicate with the control modules in a safe and controlled manner. In the true spirit of adventure associated with these motorcycles, the tool is also available with a Bluetooth interface, allowing you to use it with most modern mobile phones... no need for anything else...

It has all the advanced features to do most of your maintenance, from advanced Service functions on the Engine controllers, bleeding of the ABS units, to resetting those Service Reminders.

What is it not?

It is not a mechanic. It does not automagically fix the problem - it still needs human intervention here... Please don't expect us to teach you to be a master technician... 

GS-911 is a tool, not an online service manual.  We can not possibly document every function and procedure you can do with it for every year and model of BMW motorcycle that GS-911 can be used with.

What else do I need?

A good repair manual. There are good 3rd party manuals with good literature on the BMW bike models and most dealerships sell model specific Technical Repair DVDs. In addition there are great technical DVDs by Jim von Baden that are available through our online store, directly from Jim and through most of our distributors.

Please Note: If you need technical information, please do not email us and ask us for it. This material is copyrighted. If you have questions or need to enhance your knowledge, please use our forum as a start - there are many people that are a lot more knowledgeable than us.. ;-) ..and many many more forums that have excellent information.

And lastly, don't forget your sense of humor... Also, when we do respond in a short and concise manner, please do not be offended. If we replied with a 30 minute email or forum post to every one, then we will not get through a tenth of our emails and support load by the end of the day, let alone get some work done to enhance GS-911...
