Esa 2007 K1200gt

Decided to take the wife for a run in the sun but wasn't able to select two up on the ESA. All good changing from normal, comfort and sport but nothing changing on the RID or height when holding the button down. Any clues ... could it be harmful if I continue to pillion with panniers and top box but with my bike stuck in one up?

My K1300GT came with inoperable ESA when I took delivery. It was stuck in one-up position and we rode it 2-up for a month before a new switch arrived Rode a little rough but was still rideable.

Thanks for the tip mikes-ss. Unfortunately still no go but it's good to know I can still do a little touring over Xmas.

Cheers for the reply remphoto. I won't ask the obviuos I just hope you got yours under warranty and I get one at a reasonable price.
Merry Xmas,
Alex

My k1200gt has to be in neutral to change pillion mode. Took me a while to figure that out.
