If I were to guess, the readout requires that your bike has the IMU installed, how else will it measure lean angle, and braking/acceleration force?  If you don't get the Dynamic Pro package then you don't have the IMU.  Have you gone to your dealer and asked/checked?

Seems that this feature requires "Riding Modes Pro" according to the bike's manual. Cannot cross that check since my bike has nearly all neat little things on board and due to that shows lean angles :017:

sorry, but maybe you really have to check with your dealer eventually as rcb78 suggests.

But at least, Dynamic Mode surely is worth a recommendation :D Dynamic Mode Pro, however, is just more or less a custom mode, does not necessarily bring some extra.

I used the wrong wording, your right that it's Riding Modes Pro, but that includes both Dynamic and Dynamic Pro.  The IMU is part of this package and without it the bike does not have a way (that I know of) to sense lean angles in any plane.  It's not just for side to side or lean angle sensitive DTC and ABS, it's also what helps prevent looping out a wheelie or going over the bars with too much front brake unless you disable it in Dynamic Pro mode.  We know that the IMU is an actual part that needs to be added when upgrading a standard (Rain/Road only) bike thanks to the info from some members that got the upgrade later on, so it's not present and just disabled in software.

As I recall, the Riding Modes Pro also includes the cornering ABS. I'm sure the cornering ABS would need the IMU to measure the lean angles.

I don't think F900XR is designed to have a sportbike lean angle. Someone in the forum posted before reaching 50d with his F900XR, but in my experience, I just went back from (my first) track day I scratched my left peg at 44d lean. Also, because our bike sits much higher you would feel the lean angle a lot more than a sportbike - which is part of the fun, isn't it? :)

Following up to the reply to your other post, lean angles alone mean nothing.  If the turn is banked (correctly) you can pull a seriously steep lean angle without rubbing parts, speaking of, you also saw he ground his feelers off right?  There are turns on local roads here that have some pretty steep bank angles and I consistently hit them with about 6d more lean than flatter turns when not really even trying.  I've seen 44d with no sign of hitting my footpegs.
