Re: no spark update and nem purchase plus which manual

I am not clear what is going on here but it may be that the latest ECU 13617658614 will work with both the R1150R and the R1150RS as it supersedes both of these ECUs. Hi Ced, As I understand it ECU 13617658614 will work on both models, but only the single spark version. Refer to ECU is 13 61 7 658 ...

Re: no spark update and nem purchase plus which manual

I am not clear on what you are doing here: What year/month is your original R1150R and the new R1150RS? Are you transferring suspect parts from your non-running R1150R and your Ebay parts stock to the newly acquired running R1150RS to check if these parts are working thereby proving the transferred ...

Re: Fork Oil Change

On the Oilheads (R1100/R1150), you can change the fork oil without having to remove any of the fairing parts. Note that the Oilheads use a 'Telelever' front suspension which acts like a car wishbone suspension using a single spring strut shock absorber to provide the sprung suspension and the dampin...

Re: Unusual lurch

While aftermarket solutions may be an option, remember that the bike performed perfectly well when new. You need to be careful that you do not mask and compound a fault by fitting aftermarket components. The first thing to do is to give the engine a full service. Once the engine itself has been full...

Re: Erratic fuel gauge readings.

You need to remove the RH fairing side to access the Fuel Pump Plate connector. The black, flat, 4-way Fuel Pump Plate connector is situated at the RH rear of the Fuel Tank on the top sub-frame rail just by the mounting bolt for the rear of the tank. You can also identify the connector by the colour...

Re: Erratic fuel gauge readings.

There are a few possibilities: 1. The Fuel Pump Connector at the RH rear of the Fuel Tank has a corroded pin/socket which varies the resistance of the Fuel Gauge circuit - disconnect the connector and spray with Contact Cleaner. 2. The 'Pass-Through' connection for the Fuel Gauge circuit on the Fuel...

Re: K1100RS Mirror glass fixing

Hi Keith, It seems odd that there is no access to fit the clip. Maybe the back of the mirror housing is just clipped to the front half and it comes apart? Can the rivets for the Indicator reflector be drilled out and replaced with self tapping screws or hot glue from a glue gun? Why is the clip so l...

Hi Grob, Welcome to the forum! You are posting in the wrong forum section (BM Riders Club) to get technical advice on your R1100R question so it may not be seen by those likely to answer.

I had this problem for a year with my R100RT but on one cylinder only. I checked out everything to no avail - it was worse in cold weather than hot. I eventually came to the conclusion that it must be down to a lean mixture when cold starting. I first checked the small starting jet at the bottom of ...
