2012 BMW R1200GS Adventure 8,000 mile service plus new tyres

Posted June 15th, 2015 in BMW, Servicing.

The owner of this BMW Adventure – the very last of the air-cooled models – did not buy it from his local BMW dealer but had it delivered, new,  from Sunderland. So he had no real reason to go BMW to get it serviced and brought it to us for the BSD stamp in its […]

BMW S1000R ECU remap with Akrapovic can – a work in progress…!

Posted February 23rd, 2015 in BMW, ECU Remap.

This wasn’t a lot of fun to start with… The owner of this BMW S1000R is a regular customer and asked us if we could do anything with it. Now there’s nothing wrong with Power Commanders but the truth is that these days they don’t really cover all the bases – unlike an ECU remap. […]

2011 BMW S1000RR gearbox failure – four bearings, three gears and a selector shaft later it’s fixed…

Posted February 11th, 2015 in BMW.

This 18,000 mile old BMW S1000RR is owned by a regular customer of ours who we’ve dealt with for years. It’s just come out of its warranty period (typically) and lunched its gearbox. His local BMW dealer wasn’t really interested in helping out so he came to us. So we pulled the engine to bits […]

2006 BMW R1200S ECU remap – with the catalyser removed it was woefully lean off the bottom

Posted November 28th, 2014 in BMW, ECU Remap.

The owner of this R1200S is a friend of a friend of ours and brought his bike in despite being a bit sceptical about ECU remapping. He’d had a previous experience (not with us) that had given some improvement but removing the catalyser from the exhaust left the bike running poorly. We went into the […]

Posted November 24th, 2014 in BMW, ECU Remap, Owner's Words.

Andy Pepper was kind enough to email us his thoughts after he got his Beemer home after its ECU remap. Here’s what he reckoned: From: andy pepper Sent: 21 November 2014 08:15 To: Subject: BMW K1300s Hi Good Morning Gill, I hope you are all keeping well. I thought it was about time I […]

BMW S1000RR HP4 supply and fit K&N air filter and ECU remap to suit – it was running lean when it came in…

Posted October 24th, 2014 in BMW, ECU Remap.

What with the HP4 being the flagship of BMW’s sportsbike range this one came in for the full monty ECU remap. The owner already had a full exhaust system fitted and felt that it wasn’t running as good as it should be – we checked it on the Dyno and sure enough, it was running […]

2010 BMW S1000RR Dyno and setup Power Commander PC V after full Arrow exhaust system fitment

Posted July 16th, 2014 in BMW, Power Commander.

The owner of this Beemer had fitted a full Arrow system and binned the lambda, so wanted his fuelling dialling in with a Power Commander PC V. We mapped for each gear individually and the later unit is ready to hook up to the gear position sensor; the earlier ones didn’t and we used to […]

2006 BMW K1200S Power Commander PC III fit and Dyno setup – better than stock

Posted May 16th, 2014 in BMW, ECU Remap, Power Commander.

The owner of this Beemer has owned it a couple of years and – like a few others we’ve known – wasn’t overly impressed with it, having had a few issues. He wanted it to sound a bit better so had fitted a can; power increase wasn’t really on the agenda, just a general sort […]

Bill Westway brought his BMW K1200S in for a PC III fit and setup. Here are his initial thoughts…   Dear Jill (if I’ve remembered correctly!) and Mark,   I just thought I’d send you an email update on my black K1200S that you fitted a PC III to.   Firstly thank you very much […]

2012 BMW S1000RR Dyno setup – an owner emails

Posted July 15th, 2013 in BMW, On the Dyno, Owner's Words.

Tim Gilbert dropped us an email after his BMW S1000RR received some Dyno setup time… Hi Gill Thanks again I’m so pleased with the bike so much smoother lower down and mid range roll on has improved loads to. It feels so smooth everywhere not snatching like it did before, no pops or bangs (I’ll […]
