I can confirm that some LCs do ping and others not. My pervious 2013 full spec pinged which was replace with the same model and no pinging at all, very strange.

I saw a R1200GS LC that surges over the weekend. Surging happens at lower rpm where the revs will move up and down at constant throttle openings. The air cooled R1200GS and 1150s were known for this problem, typically the result of lean fuel mixtures.
The new LC boxers are not as bad as the air/oil cooled 1200 and earlier models, but they are certainly not running perfect with no surging. BMW actually increased the flywheel weight after the first year of the LCs to mask/hide the low speed running issues.
The BoosterPlug addresses these issues.

BoosterPlug, LED Spots, Tool Tubes, RustStop, Kappa Screens, Top boxes, Tank Bags, ATG Gear - whatever works for me.

I ride a 2015 model LC adventure. Runs smooth at any speed. No surging, no flat spots.

Maybe the Full Spec caused it to ping, what does all the led lights and cruise control with gps prep have anything to do with this suposed fueling issue
Maybe your ping is misunderstood?

So they increased the flywheel weight to mask the surging and fueling issues? What a load of bs

.

Even stranger.  My wife and I both have 2014 LC's.  Made 4 months apart.  One pings.  One doesn't.  Will have BMW look a the next service.  Also, th eone that pings did not do so from the start.  It started after 20 000km.  Clearly a mapping issue.

For the last 13 years 1200s has had pinging issues. New Euro 4 regulations has just been passed, being as strict on emissions and more  = engines are still running lean. South Africa is still abiding by Euro 2 standards but imported bikes (bikes manufactured in Europe from 2016 and sent to the international market) conforms to Euro 4 rules. Stricter rules are coming.

Terugvoer van Raymond wat 'n '14 R1200LC ry en sopas 'n BoosterPlug opgesit het:

Vir die doel wat ek hom gekry het, om te trek in n hor rat teen laer revolusies, dink ek doen hy sy job en is ek gelukkig.
