7.0 Installed- Positve Report, for Now
Installed this morning and am happy to report that the issue I had with "low speed bucking" 2500 RPM's and below, APPEARS to be solved. There is a distinctive, yet subtle difference in the overall accelleration now. Very smooth throttle response. Realizing that my issue was only when the bike had been ridden hard and completely warmed up. It was always intermittent, thus, you never knew when the low speed "lurch" was going to rear it's ugly head. So far so good, 100 miles and counting...
In addition, there was a previous post regarding a recent 7.0 installation and the power windshield failing to function afterwards. Sorry, I do not remember the author of the post. I experienced the exact same issue after completition of my install. The dealer just scratched his head, run it back to the service tech and 10 minutes later I was out the door.
Regarding the dealer, i.e., service manager, I noticed a "less than positive" attitude regarding performing the install. The 20 + year BMW Service Tech. who answered the telephone yesterday was very encouraging, especially when I told him I lost complete engine power at low RPM concluding a recent ride. Yet, the Service Mgr. seemed to imply "the software is hit or miss, comparing it to a MicroSoft upgrade, good luck!"... Not exactly leaving me confident that this is the final fix ! More time and a couple more rides will tell.
