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.

Yamaha wont turn over


Hi. Yes more than likely it is the battery. Even when boosting it the battery can drain all the power from the boost battery. You could try topping up the acid then charge it.

Sounds like the battery is not holding a charge, if you connect a volt meter just after charging you will get a good reading, each cell of a battery is 2.2 volts so you should have a reading of 13 volts. Battery may have a faulty cell, which will drag the other cells down, is the electolite covering the plates in all the cells, this will affect the battery's ability to hold a charge. My Suzuki did this earlier on this year, nearly bought a new battery, checked and topped up the electolite first and its been fine since

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 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.
