Hexcode GS-911 Three Pin Tool for older bikes
Date: August 5, 2020
About a month ago, after I took delivery of a GS-911 [three pin version for the older bikes-ed] for my 2001 BMW R1100, you walked me through trying to get the unit to work. Eventually I realized I had it plugged in to a bad power source, got it worked out and read the error code: ABS2 17: "sensor front wheel / the fault is currently present."
After re-setting the sensor gap failed to fix the problem, I replaced the sensor. The cost of the part was $300, and the cost of the GS-911 was about $100. The bottom line: The GS-911 paid for itself in its first application, costing far less than labor at the closest repair shop, about 100 miles away. I just wanted to thank you for your help and to let you know that the story has a very happy ending.
One footnote: for anyone out there with a Macbook, like me, please be aware that you can download the Windows operating system (required to run the GS-911) [Note: three pin tool for older bikes is Windows only unlike the wifi version for later bikes-ed], partition it to a minimum amount of disc storage, and use it to run the GS-911. The free tool for download and switching between systems is called Bootcamp Assistant. It took about an hour to load. My laptop and my GS-911 will now be travelling companions whenever we road trip.
