    GS-911 Worth It?

    My track bike needs the service light resetting and I’ve been looking at buying a GS-911.

    Is it worth paying the £400 outlay for one? How often do you guys use it?

    I do all my own work on my bikes but unless something goes wrong, how often or what other function are you likely to use it for apart from resetting the service reminder?

    Gas throttle calibration, QS recalibration, ABS pump flush, knock off sensors reset

    All this is very useful to have

    There was someone on fb the other day saying theyd bought some cheapo Bluetooth plugin unit that does everything the gs-911 does with a phone app, android only obviously.

    Wonder how that's any better than the others of their kind.
    Would be great if someone was brave enough to experiment. (I have the RCK3 so don't need it)

    Re: GS-911 Worth It?

    imo opinion,the gs unit is a no brainer.pay 400 quid (sure you can get it cheaper mind?) sell for msybe £100 quid less in 4/5 yrs assuming you only use it on a couple of bikes.
    has saved me many times whilst out in spain just by reseting a limp mode situation (usually throttle bodies/twist grip sensor for some reason,on 3 different bikes!!)

    better than the RCK for fault finding/resetting i've found,and whole lot cheaper

    Just bit the bullet and bought a GS-911 wifi off eBay that's got one VIN registered for 300 quid. At the maximum I'll add another 2 VINs to it and I'll still get a bit of money back when it comes to getting rid.
    I've been burned before trying to get Bluetooth readers for the Ducati and it's just a pain in the arse to be honest. At least with the GS-911 I know that they're tried and tested and I'll have peace of mind having it at the track should something happen.
