Question about 2006 BMW R 1150 R

1 Answer

Overheatong A buddy of mine has his eye on the bmw r 1150 Sporty and he asked me if I had heard about any problems with them overheating. I have not personally heard anything, but I knew I could rely on my Total Motorcycle buds to steer me correct. He said he heard that due to the closed loop EFI that the exhaust and motor temp runs very high on the 07 models. I would love to get some feedback about this so that I can pass along the information.

. There are issues with excessive heat radiating from the engine, however, especially when riding in prolonged stop and go traffic, but this is mostly on all the 96ci models. The motors are set to run on the lean side in order to pass EPA emissions testing but so far there have been no problems with engine damage as a result. There is a cure in the form of a re-map for the EFI system that will let the bike run a little richer and reduce the amount of heat, but I believe that is only available for the 96ci motors, not the Sportsters.

Oil change


R1150 models take 4 quarts of oil (at oil change). If the oil light comes on it is not good, BMW says if the light comes on while drive damage is already done. You really need to keep and eye on the oil level. I don't care what the book or BMW says, the sight hole "DOES NOT WORK:" change oil every 3000 miles!!!!!!

I was trying to find out if there was a way of manualy switching off the lights on my r1150rt i know its a strange thing to ask but i heard there was a cycle you could put in on the handlebar controlls?


Parts microfiche here
Bikes in the US don't have the switches, but European bikes do. So the switch is available and will be on the parts microfiche. If you are unable to locate the switch part number, try giving Max BMW a call, they do a pretty good job finding the right part number.

Trunk for 1150 RT


I have the standard trunk (supplied by BMW for 1150RT for a hefty price). Nice thing about it is that it fits nicely, has a backrest for the passenger and is very stable and strong. The poor thing about it is that it still will not fit a helmet. I suggest you also look at the GIVI trunk. I don't know how it will fit to the 1150RT, but I do know they look nice, are well made and large enough to accomodate a lot more thant the BMW trunk. By the way, how do you like your 1150? I love mine. If only I had more time to ride it.
