I had planned on having my tail light reprogrammed when I ship my bike to Germany this summer but if it will be over written when I get back, there goes that plan. Guess I'll grab another Hyperlites 'cuz I'm a cheap old geezer.
Is this another reason to do your own service, as much as possible?
(not toward you, Slowriding, but in general, and for information...)
Just curious, why would what
be "overwritten?" Does simply looking for fault codes do that, or? Would simply connnecting to a GS911 in the USA "overwrite?" That's all that's done on any service-looking for fault codes, unless I'm wrong? I suppose there could be firmware upgrades--but that would be a recall and specified and reason for, I'd think.
Maybe the service people in Germany can tell you what is "overwritten" to produce the Dynamic Brake Light? or the hazard of the US dealer deleting the overwrite? or is this reason all BS?
You see this argument a lot, ie that the US will overwrite, but if you trace it back, it lands on a post where a rider was told that by a "dealer." And then it gets repeated over and over, but is it actually true and has there actually been anyone who can personally attest that they had the DBL, but now they don't after a service in the US?
US riders who have paid for a 2016 or 2017 should not have to pay again for an after market device that essentially does the same thing. Right?
So, Slowriding, I am an even CHEAPER old geezer than you! And likely older, too.
