  • Model: HX-GS911-3PIN
  • Manufactured by: Hexcode

This product is not currently CE marked and so we are not offering it for sale. It may be purchased from other resellers: Hexcode Resellers.

This GS-911 3-pin interface is suitable only for older models of BMW that use a 3-pin rectangular connector.

The Hexcode GS-911 is a diagnostic and maintenance tool for BMW motorcycles.
Compact and shock-resistant, it was originally designed as an emergency tool for use on the road by BMW bike owners but has developed into the best tool available for anyone wishing to service BMW bikes whether home users or professional workshops.

Please see the Hexcode Function Chart for the current compatibility and functionality.

This tool can only be used via a usb cable with the PC program.

GS-911 Functions

The functions available with the GS-911 will vary depending on the model of bike (or, more correctly, the type of controllers/ECUs fitted to that bike). For up-to-date details about the functionality available, search for your bike in the Hexcode Function Chart.

The functions of the GS-911 are classed into two groups: "Emergency" and "Service".

"Emergency" Functions

  • Read the ECU information (type, year, software level...)
  • Show the faults detected by each ECU to help investigate problems with the bike
  • Clear/delete fault codes
  • Show the output of various sensors in real-time

The use of these "Emergency" functions is unlimited in both the "Enthusiast" and "Professional" versions: you can check any number of bikes.

"Service" Functions

Always check the Hexcode Function Chart for more detailed information about the functions available for your bike.

  • Change the service reminder date/km
  • Perform calibrations of stepper motors (TPS), fuel tank strips, ESA etc.
  • Lock idle actuators for throttle-body synchronisation
  • Reset of adaptation values
  • Add new components such as tyre pressure sensors (but not new controllers nor a new dash)
  • Purge ABS
  • Perform various output tests of actuators, valves and stepper motors and dash lights
  • Switch tests
  • Monitor and record sensor output in real-time

The GS-911 Enthusiast versions are limited to use of the Service functions for up to 10 bikes. The Professional versions have no limitation.

GS-911 Software

All appropriate software (for your GS-911 model) is downloaded from the manufacturers website after purchase of the GS-911 using the "GS911 Downloader Utility" program (Windows only).

The GS-911 does not include any software with the product. If your GS-911 includes a CD with software, it is not a genuine GS-911, it is a counterfeit product.

The primary GS-911 software is a PC program (Windows).
This software contains all the diagnostic and service functionality available. Notifications of updates are automatic. Updates require a new version of the program to be downloaded and installed.

A GS-911 is normally supplied with free download access to the English-version of the software only: the translations in Spanish, Dutch and German are available for purchase separately as these are maintained by each country reseller.
However, a GS-911 supplied by Motorvista includes free download access to the Spanish version of the software. A GS-911 bought from any other GS-911 distributor does not include free access to the Spanish version of the software.

Note that only one version (English or Spanish or any other language) can be installed at one time. However, there is no restriction on the installation of the software (unlimited computers, unlimited times).

All products supplied by Motorvista include instructions in english and spanish.

Genuine or Counterfeit?

Motorvista is the official Hexcode distributor for Spain. All GS-911 sold by us include free access to the Spanish version of the software.

Beware of online shops or OBD "specialists" offering much cheaper versions of the GS-911: these are most likely Chinese clones (see here for more information). If the GS-911 includes a CD of software, it is a clone. The clones are not updateable and generally stop working after a few months.
Check the Hexcode website for the list of official distributors.
