Question about 1995 BMW R 1100 GS
The push button started switch on the handle bars does two things at the same time. It interupts the headlight and closes the circut for the starter. This is common to most motor cycles. The comon problem here is that the switch itself is not well protected from weather and corossion.
Common trouble shoot steps...
Does the starter turn when supplied voltage with a jumper cable. If so started motor is probaly intactact if not bad starter.
Second if you jump the relay for the starter (often near the battery, will have a heavy cable from battery and one from starter) does the starter spin?
If these are OK suspect the switch on the handle bars.
I have to clean mine about every six months but my bike is NEVER in the garage. Idrive it daily and it sits out at night.
