    Just got my 1150 rt, Came with top box and panniers. I could just about fit a lid in the top box. but got scratched. Also driving it home from the dealers up the M4 back to london. The clutch master cylinder has packed up...



    The bike only has 2500 miles on the clock. How can this happen with such low milage..?



    The bike rides beautiful. Like sitting in an armchair...lol

I have the standard trunk (supplied by BMW for 1150RT for a hefty price). Nice thing about it is that it fits nicely, has a backrest for the passenger and is very stable and strong. The poor thing about it is that it still will not fit a helmet. I suggest you also look at the GIVI trunk. I don't know how it will fit to the 1150RT, but I do know they look nice, are well made and large enough to accomodate a lot more thant the BMW trunk. By the way, how do you like your 1150? I love mine. If only I had more time to ride it.

Wiring diagrams


I see you were asking about installing a radio on your 1150RT a few days ago.

There are no downloadable wiring diagrams that I know of out there on the 'net. You can purchase a copy of SLP2 which is a CD containing wiring diagrams for many BMW bikes. Maybe a copy can be found on Ebay?

The other easy option is to trace out the power wires and speaker wires in the harness using a test light and ohm meter. You need constant 12v, switched 12v and ground for your radio/CD and then the speaker wires. Does your bike have the speakers and antenna already installed?

Good Luck!

Can I use a non BMW brand synthetic motor oil such as Mobil 1 in my 2004 1150RT?


Yes, is the short answer to your question. The BMW R1150RT engine will run and be protected quite well using a quality oil of viscosity listed in your owners manual. I would suggest a 20W50 for most applications.

My BMW 1150RT battery light came on. I replaced


This looks like a regulator or alternator issue. If you have access to a volt meter start the bike and check the voltage going to the battery. Needs to be 13.5 or 14 volts. If not time to take the Beemer to the shop.

How to fix rear brake pads on a BMW 1150RT have fitted new pads and they seem to be to binding on the disc


You'll have to disassemble it and move your piston in and out of the caliper to make sure it gets full stroke. Sounds like it's not compressing all the way into the caliper. Also some break fluids can expand, You may try bleeding it down a little first.
