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

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.

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.

Yes it does.

Could it be "ABS"?
Does it stay on after start? Does the bike run normally?

BMW Motorcycles | Answered on Jan 27, 2019 | 81 views


it will take you forever to tune the bike using open pipes. dont you think the bmw engineers know what they are doing. also open pipes make drivers want to run over you.
