Imagine for a moment you had a short-circuit in one of your ignition coils. The BMS-K (engine controller) will protect itself by switching off the power to the injectors, ignition coils etc… This means No Fuel and No Spark… and without it, your motorcycle is not going anywhere!

If only you had a GS-911…

Reading the fault codes would show you the following:
Fuse Activated for Component Block 3 (Injectors, Ignition Coils, Immo (EWS) reader coil and starter relay)
Guess where you should start fault-finding? Have a look at the demo video below.

The GS-911 is available in 2 versions, USB only or

This product is absolutely brilliant. I have now got the complete electrical/electronic side of my R1200GS covered, ready for the inevitable future fault of sensors etc. If anyone reading this is considering purchasing, do so now, you wont regret it. It is so simple to use, anyone can diagnose the problem. I disconnected various sensors and threw many faults…the GS-911 picked them all up and described exactly what area the problems were in. Thanks for a superb reasonably priced piece of kit. Andrew, UK

10167: Output stage to Electric Fuel Pump
Fault codes read and cleared. Good product!

I received my GS911 this morning, followed Stephan’s install instructions for the new BlackBerry application, and had a seamless bluetooth connection between my BB Pearl 8100 (T-Mobile) and the GS911 in no time at all.
What a GREAT device!!!
I had a headlight burn out this past weekend. While running the the Electronics Controller Fault Code program the fault was identified, and the GS911 found that the fault had been corrected. An option was then given to clear the fault code. A press of the “pearl” and the code was cleared.??? Frank, USA, ’06 R1200GSA

  • Sam says:
