    Removing DDC?

    Was planning to remove the DDC Suspension on my bike this week to fit Ohlins Forks & Rear Shock but was wondering will it throw up any error lights on dash or is there some way to disable the DDC using my GS-911 Tool prior to removal?


    Thanks

    Removing DDC?

    As Alex says, Ryan or @Baz will know for certain, however I believe you must have the DDC deactivated by a BMW dealer prior to removal of the DDC suspension.
    Failure to do so in this order results in a DDC warning light.

    you cant remove the DDC warning light with the GS911 tool,only way you can do it is via the RCK3 software+unit,a very expensive way to go about it.you'll find most just stick some gaffa tape over it

    or at the dealer as above

    So DDC has to Deleted by dealer prior to removal or can I get them to do it after I’ve fitted Ohlins?

    Yes.Oli is correct.
    If you disconnect it first,it will still show ddc if done afterwards.Just the job if you need to ride it to the dealers!!
    I had mine done after swapping to ktech-total waste of time as it still showed the fault(black tape to the rescue,I just covered mine up).

    Re: Removing DDC?

    why must it be before? the reason i know you cant use the gs911 unit is because i've tried with my previous 2 gen3 bikes that ran electronic suspension but theres no option to do it,and now with my latest one i have the RCK3 unit and sotfware,and i've just done it,running aftermarket suspension without the DDC light.it's given as an option in the software of the RCK.
