More info on CIP 7.0

K-Series (K4x) motorcycles:

General modifications, applicable to all models in this Series:

Improved "gear recognition" function:
  • clears the "intermittent errors in the gear indicator" or "incorrect gear readings in the instrument cluster" symptoms
  • through the reduction of the adaptation times, which improves the recognition function
Improved damping during load change and metering (even below 2,500 rpm):
  • generally improved ridability; as a side effect, it should be noted that the damping affect after a load change is indicated briefly by a low resonant tone in the silencer.
  • engine picks up again more smoothly and comfortably after coasting with the throttle valve closed(fuel delivery cut off); as a secondary effect, a brief, muted, churning noise maybe audible in the silencer.
IMPORTANT: this update changes the ridability of the vehicle noticeably
and should only be programmed with the agreement of BMW Motorrad
Technical Support and of the customer. Reprogramming back to the previous software version is not possible!

Improved actuation of the “throttle valve stop”:
  • clears the "loss in power output" and/or the “throttle valve not reaching its fully open position”. This was due to the “throttle valve stop” not returning to its correct “zero” position when the ignition is switched “off”. The new software corrects this symptom through modification of the initialization of the “throttle valve stop”.
ATTENTION: replacing the stepper motor in the event of the above symptoms does not provide a solution.

Improved cold starts at temperatures below 50°F / 10°C :
  • clears the "starting problem at low ambient temperatures" and/or "engine is starved until it cuts out" symptoms.
Power optimization at high altitude:
  • clears the "lack of power at high altitude" symptom.
Additional, model-related functions:

K 1200 GT (K44) - ridability modification:
  • noticeably improved ride at slow speeds and metering below 2,500 RPM.
  • clearly improved damping during load change.
  • generally improved ridability.
IMPORTANT: this update changes the ridability of the vehicle noticeably
and should only be programmed with the agreement of BMW Motorrad
Technical Support and of the customer. A reprogramming back to the previous software version is not possible!

R-Series (K2x) motorcycles:

The following changes were made due to the right side cylinder head temperature sensor being eliminated on motorcycles produced after factory shut down, ‘07 model year:
  • Suppression of faultcode memory entry for temperature sensor, cylinder 1 (on the right when viewed in the direction of travel)
  • the new program and data statuses can be setup on vehicles equipped with both sensors.
IMPORTANT:The program affects the BMS-K diagnostics, i.e. after this software has been programmed, any failure of the temperature sensor, cylinder 1 (right side as sitting on motorcycle) is no longer displayed via a fault code memory entry, even when the sensor is removed. This is due to the fact, the BMS K no longer looks for this input data.

Improved "gear recognition" function:
  • clears the "intermittent errors in the gear indicator" or "incorrect gear readings in the instrument cluster" symptoms.
  • considerably fewer incorrect readings in the instrument cluster through reduction of the adaptation times, which improves the recognition function.
Additional, model-related functions: R 1200 S (K29) - ridability modification:
  • improved, more responsive throttle response.
  • stops the engine "choking" when the throttle valve is opened abruptly.
  • generally improved ridability.
IMPORTANT: this update changes the ridability of the vehicle noticeably and should onlybe programmed with the agreement of BMW Motorrad Technical Supportand of the customer. Reprogramming back to the previous software version is not possible!

Applies to R-Series and K-Series motorcycles:

General modifications, applies to all models:

Modification to the “switch-off” behavior of the on-board socket and accessories socket:
  • rectifies the following issues:
    • on-board socket and/or navigator switch off intermittently.
    • on-board socket and navigator switch off briefly when ignition is switched “On".
Modification to the horn “switch-off” behavior:
  • rectifies the following issue:
    • horn fails when activated continuously or when pressed briefly several times.
Additional, model-related functions:

Modification to fuel gauge on the following models:

- R 1200 GS and R 1200 GS Adventure (without board computer),
- R 1200 ST
- K 1200 S
- K 1200 R

rectifies the following issue:
  • fuel gauge does not display all bars when the tank is full. (only applies to motorcycles equipped with segmented instrument cluster)
Modification to the range remaining display on the following model:

Applies to R and K series motorcycles supplied with dot matrix instrument
clusters:

Improved contrast adjustment:

Corrects the following issue:
  • symbols and display are poorly visible in the instrument cluster
  • Possible to write the mileage reading when replacing the instrument cluster with a new unit.
Individualization of the instrument cluster:
R-series and K series motorcycles:
  • Tire pressure display unit
NOTE: Only possible in conjunction with option 530, "tire-pressure monitoring system"

I think the little bees at BMW have been pretty busy on this one.

I've talked with a few dealers today about how they are going to handle this. Most are saying that if you show up for the upgrade by itself, you will end up paying for the labor (plan on at least an hour). If you get this done at a major service, like a 600 mile, 6K interval, or 12K interval, you will probably get it done at no charge.

Oooh, I just caught the part about fixing the problem with the accessory/GPS connector being shut off when the key is turned on. I was just getting ready to hardwire my GPS and crap for the CCR. Now I won't need to.

Thanks Jefe
