Today I drove for half an hour with the oil pressure sensor disconnected. There was no warning on the display or no safe mode. Very weird?🤷♂️
........ehhhhh, bad day in Berlin.As an engineer myself I'm pretty sure there's only one reason: marketing division. BMW needs to push new bikes, just look at their financing plans. Don't know about US but in Russia they offer way better deal than any bank.
So, there's no other reason other than marketing division of BMW group. This way if engine of your bike fails it fails catastrophically. And you either have to replace it or better yet buy a new bike.
You can observe same strategy in modern smartphones, home appliances and pretty much every product of Apple corp.
Nothing bad will happen if bike will flash red triangle on low oil pressure. Then you can decide for yourself: will you continue your ride and replace your engine as a consequence or maybe just pull over and there's a chance to fix it for relatively cheap.
It will take some time for required components/adapters/etc to arrive but my plan is to make this modification non-intrusive i.e. no modifications to bike electrical system.
