Question about 1977 BMW R 75-7

Coupling is stuck / sticks together

After the winter, I tried to get my motor BMW 75/7 back on the road. Starting is no problem. But when I hold in the clutch (coupling - I don't know the right word) and I want to put him in first gear, he shoots forward and falls out. The clutch/coupling seems not to work anymore. It is probably stuck or it sticks together somewhere. I allready tied to hold in the clutch for one day without succes and I tried to start it in first gear also without succes. Do you have any usefull tips ?

What you have here is a clutch plate that is stuck against the flywheel. You can try a couple of things. First the safe thing is to put it on the center stand and put it in 4th gear. Hold the clutch in and Grab the rear wheel and rock it back and forth severel times quite hard and this may free the plate That is the simpleest and safest way to do it. donnyb60

Is the bike shooting forward while you have the clutch lever pulled in or when you let it out? If it's when you let it out you have to do it slower and roll on the accelerator so that it doesn't stall. If you have the clutch lever all of the way in and it shoots forward you may need to see a mechanic... I'm sorry if this doesn't help much.

The problem may be the clutch thrust bearing,if it seizes and you pull in the handlebar lever the mechanism may get damaged . A lot of play in the lever and rough action with no effect on the clutch is the result.It may just be the clutch plate slightly seized the results of this are proper handlebr lever action but as soon as you put the bike in gear in jumps forward ,try running the engine at tickover for 30 minutes to really warm up the bike then put it in gear,after a few trys things should free up.

1990 k75 ok so my battery was dead so i try to jusmp start it wit a car charger and not the bike wants to turn over on its own please help


,il help you on this one,,,,so long as you dont try this again,,,ok!
first lift the fule tank to get to the relays under it in a black box,,,
take the lid of the relay box and look inside it,,,you will see a long black relay that is bolted down with a 10mm bolt and with two battery leads going to it near the seat end of the box,,,give this relay a jentel tapping with a screw driver,,,this relay is the starter relay and,,,,(its stuck in!) you have "welded the contacts together in it!" if it dont let go then its a new relay,,,and thats pricy!!!! £70???+!!!
thats what happens if you try to jump start a bmw!!!! with to fuw amps to turn it over!!! keep tapping the relay till it lets go and you can then hook up the bike's battery after you have "fully charged it first"!!!! so its got the amps to turn the motor over with out welding the starter relay up again,,,heres a tip,,,if your going to leave the bike standing around not in use get yourself a 2.5watt 12 volt solar battery charger and hook that to the bikes battery it wont over charge the battery but it will keep it toped up and fully charged,,and all it needs to work is good light,,,
see free power??? now go off and fix this bmw,,,easy realy?
and dont try starting her up on a car charger,,,use a car battery if you must,,but not just a charger,there is to fuw amps in it to start her up!!!

Anti lock brake lights flashing simultaneously


I would check the brake pads first to see if they are worn badly, spent a lot time once learning that will cause ABS lights to flash!
Grounding the middle pin on the ABS diagnostic plug , turn on the ignition and mash both brakes to see if the bulb checker light goes out! Very important, left out of procedure on IBMWR, if the red bulb checker light doesn't go out you have a blown tail light or stop light bulb and the ABS won't reset!
Or you have a bad bulb checker module underneath the seat. If the red light goes out then the ABS lights should go to flashing then push the ABS reset button and hold for slow count of 10 or so. Release and try it. Hope this helps!

Start and die


Fill up the gas tank, clean the fuel filter, and then check to see if your carb jets are clean. Remove the jets from the carb and attempt to look through them in the light. If you cannot see light through them they need another cleaning.
