you could always rife to the ul and i could load it on for you haha.
the fact you are calling it might be confusing them, they are not maps in such that you see the fuel graph, its simply a point and click worded bit of software.
Ill check where it is exactly (MOSS has cavernous menus which are ever changing with new operating system updates) when im in work next week and let you know and maybe you can ask your dealer to follow it.

Like i said before though im not 100% itll be on the SA systems but its worth a shot

Well I have finally found a solution - NO THANKS TO BMW!!

We have found a chap in the UK that can remap the ECU basemap to what it should be.
Huge positive results have been achieved with most people raving that their bikes are totally different animals. Biggest benefit is that the bike is smooth, up to 25% more power and best of all - the A/F ratio is around 13.2 - 13.5:1 which is what it should have been from the start. Fuel consumption is also far better!
Problem sorted - albeit at a cost of around 350 pounds (cheaper and far better option than a PC or aftermarket device)

Cylinder Head Carbon Deposits - BMW 1200 GSA

Three friends and I just rode London - Beijing on nearly identical 2007 BMW 1200 Adventures. On returning to England the bikes were turned over to a BMW garage for maintenance. All of them turned out to have significant carbon deposits on the cylinder heads - "where the piston comes towards the exhaust valve".
They getting stuck in with a wire brush and hope this will do the job. But I thought I'd search the net for similar problems and came across this string, so am adding this info for anyone collecting such data.
None of the bikes had mods to make them run leaner. We ran in very hot conditions across deserts and used low octane fuel where that was the only stuff available. However, on such occasions we usually added octane booster.
Hope that's useful extra input.
If it takes more than a wire brush, I'll let you all know.
In the meantime, it's fun to discover such knowledgable new friends.
