Version 5.01 is delayed, and not out yet...but when, the following is your key to if you will have to update to this version(from 'ManfredH')Erik said:I'm taking the bike in next week for the brake noise fix. I was wondering if anyone knows ( Help Jack if the new software 5.01 or whatever is really out and does it address low rpm fueling issues.
That is correct the 2006 models have the new software...and it is this...the version 5.1 is...for the 2006 models, but intended to be used with the 2005 models for better performance and rendering 'hesitation btw 1500/3000 rpm's'gperformance said:my K12 is currently at the workshop for injectors replacement (leaking and bad cold start resulting) and it seems that 06 models have latest software, so older models need complete re-programming when at the workshop (but no official recall program)
that's for the belgian market
Take a look at the post second from top on this page....if any bike comes up with one of those codes , they m u s t do a software up-date, this acc BMW. Weather the owner 'knows' this or not...the policy is..some Service letters/bulletins are..sorted as "re-calls" (those that could render bikes 'safety' and owner will be contacted) and some are rendered .. "until next visit"( not so serious and could be taken at next visit work-shop). Actually believe it or not The Software up-dated goes in the last of priorities ( until next visit)...BUT owners are not to ask for this, it should be offered, or actually done by Workshop under warranty. This is as rules and regulations goes in Europe according my Dealer, just spoke with him today..couldn't even make me believe this 'service' is any differant over the pond...furgetboutit said:I asked about the new software update when I was in for the first service on my '05 - Service manager said that they were just getting the latest update in, but would only offer it if an owner really complains about problems wiith engine management issues. He said that BMW North America will probably not automatically update every '05 KS preferring to update if the dealer and BMW feel the individual bike needs it. I don't think this is official but just based on his understanding.
