GS-911, changing ZFE ?

Question for those that own a gs-911. Can you change the setting for blinkers, ie the bike came from factory with halogen blinkerbulbs. Can you change the canbus to accept lower current from LED instead and thus not require any resistors?

I heard it can be done by Bmw dealers but would be nice if it it possible to do at home if one had a gs-911.
Still don't own one but it would help to pull the trigger if jobs like that are supported by it.

Re: GS-911, changing ZFE ?

You donít need to change anything when replacing standard globes with LEDs.
I run K1300R indicators in the rear and LED bulbs in the front mirror indicators.
Everything works beautifully without any CAN bus issues.

Re: GS-911, changing ZFE ?

I put led bulbs in and got lamp warning and hyperflash. Got another set of bulbs that was canbus in front and had to put resistors in the rear.

But i have heard that it is possible to change the limit in zfe to use led without the lampwarning and hyperflash. Wondering if settings like that are possible to access with gs 911.

Re: GS-911, changing ZFE ?

Iím having a similar issue right now with HIDís in my high beams. I looked today to see if I could change the ZFE current settings and it doesnít seem to allow this access. I have found that when you run a test via the GS911 the lights work fine. This tells me that the ZFE pretection circuits are ignored when using the GS911 for testing.
It seems, then, that it would be possible to find access to these setting, I just didnít see them readily available in any of the GS911ís GUI.

Re: GS-911, changing ZFE ?

I've installed the BMW -503 turn signals on 4 or 5 K13's, never had an issue. But I always left the incandescent bulbs in the front, or on the K13R again used the -503 LED's. No changes to the ZFE required. Never tried any aftermarket stuff though.
As far as the GS 911 is concerned, it seems that changing the settings is possible for some models, in fact some of the newer (RR) versions allow the owner to change it by the left handlebar settings. But the XR has to be changed by the dealer, not GS911 or user settings. Try looking at the hexcode website and/or user forum, you should be able to find out what can be done for your model and year of bike.
