Question about 1988 BMW K 100 RT
I´m after some technical advice...I have a K100 RT 85\´model that will not start. All checks point to fuel starvation. I have checked and cleaned the injectors, fuel pump & filter, pressure regulator with no luck. I\´ve even blocked the return hose for more pressure. My question is how much pressure does the fuel pump need to pump out to achieve a decent size spray of fuel from the injectors? Any response relating to the above query will be highly appreciated.
I have a 1985 k100rt and it would not start. i made some calls to bobs bmw in maryland and i unplugged electrical connector on gas tank ,sprayed it with electrical contact cleaner and coated it with dielectric gel. that fixed it. also check main grounding point on frame under gas tank.on a bike this old you need to make sure electrical connections are clean. the fuel pump is supposed to deliver fuel at 36 psi according to clymers repair manual. i hope this helped .
