Question about 2007 BMW K 1200 R

1 Answer

Wiring isue I am having a problem with my wiring. The bike was fine 2 weeks ago when I parked it....I go out today.....nothing. The battery is good and when I turn the bike on, nothing happens. If I hook up a power source to the positive and negative terminals on the fuse box (I think it bypasses the battery), I get power. But if I try to start the bike, I might turn over slow for a second....but then I usually hear clicking. So I am assuming that my problem is between the battery and the fuse box. Any ideas?

Put a meter on the battery and get a real-world reading. One at the battery by itself with nothing on, and one with the key on and trying to turn the starter motor. A good battery will read 12+ volts at rest and not drop more than a volt or 2 when trying to start. If that's good, you have a loose or corroded connection between the battery and starter motor. Clean and check all the connections until you find the problem.

pull the starter and check it by putting it on a testor or just hooking it to a good(known)battery. If it tests good then check/replace the starter switch and check wires to the switch.

I have a virago xv500, had new battery put on it 3 days ago, starts first thing in the moring , when i try to start it when the engine is hot it drains battery and wont start


Hi, Paul some bikes get "Sun Stroke" after running fine in the morning then shut off and parked in the sun for a couple of hours on a hot day. You get back on the bike hit the starter button and nothing happens or the engine turns over but will not fire. Then you put the bike in the shade for 20-30 minutes and it fires up no problem.
The primary reason for this phenomenon is faulty wire connections in the Starter and/or Ignition Circuit. You may have a wire connection/component that makes just enough contact when cool to start and run the bike, but when parked and exposed to direct sunlight heat causes expansion and creates an "OPEN" in the circuit not allowing the bike to start. You move the bike into the shade for a few minutes, the temperature goes down allowing the connection to contract and make better contact and suddenly "it's a miracle" the bike starts. I know what you're thinking that Gremlin could be anywhere, and you would be right in that assumption, you can take your bike to a dealer, spend tons of "DRACHMA" only to receive validated nervous emotions the next time you park in the sun, then 1 week later it doesn't start. Start by doing a ground check:
Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary. Check all common grounds for the same suspects.
The secondary reason your bike may get "Sun Stroke" is vapor lock although this is a rare scenario it does happen.

I had my 2001 Fatboy running 2 weeks ago, went to start it today - no power (lights accessories, anything) put the battery charger on it & still nothing - checked all the fuses & all were good -...


The power from your battery goes fromt the positive post of the battery directly to the starter. At the starter, there should be two connections. The large battery cable and a smaller red wire. This red wire is "hot' wire to all the "accessories" on your bike. The wire runs straight from there to the ignition switch. If you don't have power to the main switch, you have a main fuse blown somewhere. You'll need a schematic to trace the wiring out from there. I'm sorry but I don't have a schematic for that model bike. Make sure all your connections are clean and tight and your "Run/Stop" switch in the in the proper position.
