Some Sea Foam or Techron, take your pick will do a decent job cleaning your carbs, but they aren't magic. If there's a lot of gunk in your carbs, then you'll need to take them off and at least clean what you can get to. I don't know anything about your specific bike, but generally speaking, the carbs aren't too bad to take off and give a cursory cleaning. Buy the manual for your bike if you're not comfortable. There are a lot of small parts inside your carbs. DO them slowly, one at a time (in case you forget where something goes, you can check another for reference) and put the parts in a small container like an egg carton or a couple shot glasses. Adjusting your valves is a little more complicated. Someone in your area might be willing to come walk you through it for the cost of a few beers. I'm sure there's a forum somewhere for your bike. Do some googling and I'm sure you'll be able to find some help from someone who knows your bike.

Hi just got the rd 1200 st it won't go into gear when first started from cold is this intended by bmw or is there a problem . Thanks

I assume you are talking about an R1200ST, correct? If so, there would appear to be a problem with the gearbox, which is separate from the engine.

You could attempt to first drain and change the oil. If it still gives trouble, it will have to be opened up and checked.

2006 rt 1200 wont start new battery neutral and first gear dont show on dash

The fact that the neutral light does not show up on the dash may indicate that the gear position indicator is not calibrated correctly. Does the bike start with the clutch pulled in?

My BMW r1200rt motor bike will turn over and runs for about 30 seconds and then runs down like it is starved of fuel can any one help

Hi, Traceyhanlon for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue.

I have just refurbished a 1976 Bmw R600/6 which has been stored for over 20 years. Once i got it running i found i could only select 3 gears i believe the missing ones are 1st and 5th. Is this a common...

hey shane my recommendation is to replace the gears 1st and 5th and not to my knowledge is that a common problem to break gears like that you have to shift hard with out clutch ( power shifting )

good luck.
