Question about 1995 BMW K 1100 RS

1 Answer

Bogging Alright this bogging down while sitting at stop lights is getting annoying. Its been doing this when it gets above 194 degrees for the last year. Every time I replace the plugs it goes away then after about 3,000 miles it comes back (plugs look fine nice and clean). Talked to my LBS and he said the gixxers when they get over 194 degrees dumps more fuel in the engine to try to cool it off. I have had this bike since the start and it didn't do this then just with in the last year. Is there any way to tell the computer not to dump as much? Or is there another problem we are not seeing.

I need to know a few more thing though. Does it die when it bogges down or just drop in rpms? Does it bogg when you try to give it gas or not? By what you have said I would start with looking at the choke first then the fuel pump. Or the relays that control them. You see if you add more fuel to the mixture after the bike is hot then it will kill it and you could not go without killing it. So who ever told you that when it is warm more fuel goes in to cool it down has no idea what they are talking about. I worked on a R1 about a year ago that did the same thing and it turned out to be the starter relay because it also controled the choke and fuel pump.

Check the fuel pump output. Some will work but not have enough output for the instances you describe. Find a place that can test the fuel pump pressure.

01 pt cruiser is overheating only when the a/c is on have changed radiator cap, thermostate, relays and sensor that tells the fan when to turn on and off

Make sure your radiator isn't clogged or dirty, then it's very important to know at how many degrees do the sensor that you bought activate the fans (It's written on the sensor). Be sure that is no more than 80°C (176°F), cause most of those sensors activate above 100°C (212°F) at that point the water of the radiator is already boiling so you don't want that. After that the radiator cap should be 16psi of pressure to open if it's below 16psi change it. Finally buy a good antifreezer/coolant (I would recommend Prestone Antifreezer/coolant)

The AC doesn´t work when outside temp goes 100 degrees and above

Try using a garden hose to wash down the condensor coil (the coil that is exposed to the outside air).
During the cooler times when it seems to be working, check the temperature difference of the air coming out against the temperature of the air coming in (room temperature air). The temperature should be approximately 16 to 22degF difference. If you are not getting at least 16degF air, you most likely need to have your unit serviced to see if professionial cleaning or a recharge is needed. If you are getting the temperature difference but not getting the amount of cooling you need during hot weather, it could be a capacity problem. You can perform a quick test by using the calculator on this site:

I hope you find this information helpful. Good Luck! :-)

Cooling Problems

Your filter is clogged. Not the one at the bottom of the unit.The one above the unit. It is like a raditor coils, kind of a bear to get to. We have cats and dogs the filter gets most of the hair but not all.Usualy about 6 bolts to take out.The proublem will be at the bottom of the top filter.
