Hi, Mike if you have a CKP sensor it needs compression to send the correct signal to the ICM/ECM, make sure both spark plugs are in heads and use a grounded third plug to check for spark or hold spark plug cable close to spark plug in the head. If still not getting spark the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Discharged battery, check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
3. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
4. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting / leaking, spark plug cable connections loose.
5. Faulty ignition coil or ignition / electronic module
6. Failed CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.
7. Faulty ignition switch.
8. Security alarm failing to disarm needs reset

Hi,
My experience with this always leads to a 'dead' spot developed over the times the bike sets. If you remove the pump and gently tap on the outside with a PLASTIC covered hammer or use a block of wood between a ball peen hammer and the fuel pump or of course take the pump apart and lightly -sand the points [ this can be a one way process - if you can't put the pump back together - don't attempt this.
Because you have never had this problem before - I suggest you get some WD40 and while the bike is turning over spray it into the intake and it will fire off the bike
if the problem is fuel. Sometimes you can get lucky and this alone will allow
the fuel system to self adjust. Also be sure to take the time to remove the negative side of the battery and let it set for about 30 minutes.
This can allow the electronics to reset and work properly.
If the bike doesn't start or at least fire while spraying the WD40 you
most likely need a qualified technition

enjine, R11xx bikes are generally regarded as well balanced, sweet handling machines. Indeed, it is one of their better attributes. Have you inspected the rear swing arm and final drive for free play? With the bike securely on the center stand grab the rear wheel at 3 o'clock and 9 o'clock and attempt to rock it. Repeat this at 12 and 6 o'clock. If you discover flex you may have also discovered the cause of your handling problems. If you do discover flex you'll need to isolate it to the rear drive, the paralever bearings (at the rear of the swing arm and a well documented "weak link") or at the swing arm bearings. One more thought; what sort of tire pressure do you run, front & rear? I hope you can sort this out and start fully enjoying your oilhead.

Remove the entire fuel pump/filter assembly from inside the tank. The dissassembly and reassembly is then self evident

check the fuse box and recheck the battery.
Also check the starter motor terminals and make sure they are clean.

Hi,

1. Turn off the ignition and remove the seats from the bike
2 Look under the rider seat for a set of three wires that go into a plug.
3 Remove the plug (you will see that it's nothing but an empty piece of plastic!).
4 Insert one end of your 30cm strip of wire into the cable plug so it makes contact with the CENTER wire
5 Ground the other end of your wire
6 Turn on the ignition and hold down the ABS button for 10 seconds.
7 Turn off the ignition, remove your 30cm wire and put the bike back together again.
8 Turn the ignition back on and the ABS is reset!

Good Luck!!

Thanks!!

The gas tank has to come off. It's really not that much more than you've already done. If you don't pull the tank, it's a fight all the way. This way is much easier.

FIRST YOU FIND IT LOOK UNDER THE VEHICLE ALONG THE FRAME . I TRY TO GET NEW ONE BEFORE HAND AT AUTO PARTS STORE .

BMW Motorcycles | Answered on Dec 10, 2019


Easiest way would be to install a switch between the lights and the high beam switch. That way it would still come on only when high beams are on but you could turn them off. Alternately you could rewire them completely so they run only off of a switch, but then you would have to tun them on and off manually all the time. ---> expect to be pulled over for not dimming your lights when you encounter an oncoming police car and you forget they are on.
