Question about 2004 BMW R 1150 GS
Since the R1150 engine is entirely air cooled, standing still with the engine running for extended periods will quickly lead to high temperatures. This is normal and engine temperatures should be monitored to prevent excessive engine temp. This can lead to valve stem jamming in the valve guide, warping of heads, etc. I can see my engine temps increasing if I drive slowly (1st gear) in loose sand (high engine revs). You just have to monitor it. I haven't heard of anybody overheating an R1150 engine yet, but I suppose there is always a first time. Having an engine problem in the bush (here is South Africa we do a lot of off-road driving far away from civilization) is not a good idea.
