For the explanations documented in gory element in this put up on AdvRider, I would like to switch (a minimum of) the correct aspect throttle-body module on my 2015 R1200GS. Hoping somebody right here has executed this earlier than and may provide some steering on the next:

  1. Is it required or advisable that the throttle physique modules get replaced in pairs? [I hope not, considering the cost :-o]
  2. I’ve discovered a number of used modules from varied web sources, though notably contemplating the labor concerned in doing this alternative I actually need to be assured that any used one I purchase is in fine condition. Are these a recognized put on merchandise, such {that a} used module off a high-mileage bike is more likely to be suspect?
  3. From the BMW handbook, the alternative job seems to be fairly straight-forward, though I have been fooled earlier than by seemingly easy manufacturing unit restore directions. I have not but discovered any on-line movies for this restore for the LC GS mannequin – anybody conscious of 1 I may need missed, or in any other case have any necessary lessons-learned from the job?
  4. As soon as I’ve changed the throttle physique module, will the ECU routinely acknowledge it, or is there extra work required to make this occur? In that case, can I do it with my GS911 or will this be a dealer-only exercise?
  5. The rest I ought to pay attention to in transferring ahead with this restore?

TIA for any steering.


I’ve a 2016 RT, I changed my proper TB in April most likely for a similar code you’re getting.

I bough additional clamps for the consumption tubing, I didn’t want it. I additionally purchased the particular pliers from NAPA for the clamps that helped however they’re a PIA to reinstall.

I solely changed the correct TB and ran the sync and twist grip recalibration with the GS911. I believe I additionally carried out the idle steadiness (or no matter its referred to as)

Whereas studying the lengthy thread on ADV rider I noticed the place one seller was suggested by BMW to take the connectors off the ECU and reseat to assist clear the contacts.

I went one step additional I took the connectors off the ECU and twist grip and applies Stabilant22 to the pins and sockets (should buy on Amazon, must be blended with 99% alcohol). I additionally utilized it to the connector and pins on the TB I changed.

Simply obtained again type a 7,000 mile journey out west no points.

Not a nasty job simply take your time…0-4513d670b6bc
