Question about 2001 BMW R 1100 R

1 Answer

2001 BMW R1100R won't start. Pump or electrical?

I have a 2001 BMW R1100R that has sat idle while I was out of the country. It was last ridden almost 3 years ago with no problems, and since then it was moved and the fuel tank almost completely emptied. I have put in new battery, fresh gas and sea foam and it won't start. The spark plugs are firing, the lines leaving the fuel tank are not clogged, but the line leaving the pump going into the injector doesn't have fuel. Therefore, I'm guessing the problem lies in the pump. The only other odd item of note is that there is a short clicking noise inside the fuse box immediately after turning the key on that lasts for about 1 second. Any ideas?

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

My 1996 BMW R1100R won't start and backfires when you try starting it. A few months ago they replaced a temperature sensor and it ran well for about 4 months. It seems to run well when it is warmed...


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the enricher.
5. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
6. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
7. 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.
8. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and module.
9. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.
10. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty ignition coil, ignition module or sensors (MAP, CMP, CKP, O2 and/or BAS).
11. Security alarm needs a reset.

2001 ttr 225 bike sat all last year. Would start this spring but not idle. Now it won't start. I know the carb had old gas. Where can I find a manual so I can take it apart and know what parts to...


Start by removing and cleaning the carb, it may not need any parts.
also change the oil, fit new air filter, new spark plug, and check the valve clearances
