I got my recall letter yesterday and I have an '09 K13S, built 11/08. Had the v14.2 done the very first day it was available for download direct to the dealers... have put over 4000mi on bike since update. Stalling issues gone, and never had the TB's cleaned. 13,500mi on odo so far. My service manager told me other day that BMW did send them a service bulletin that has recommended the following fuels only because of their cleaning agent: Chevron, Texaco, BP/Amoco, Shell is what I remember but think he mentioned 1 or 2 more in that list.
I think BMW may have had 2010 bikes "on the way" when update was released, and it's just as easy for the dealer to update the ECU when the bike comes off the truck and in the door of dealer. Nobody is riding the bikes between Germany and dealer, so there shouldn't be any 2010's riding around with old software anymore. Recall notice is there just in case a 2010 slipped through the cracks, and if I were a prospective buyer I'd probably actually prefer the dealer telling me "we downloaded the latest software for you."
Hope you GT owners' bikes are running perfectly.
