Question about 2006 BMW R 1150 R

1 Answer

BMW R1150GS wont start

I have a 2003 1150GSA. I needed to remove the front cover from the motor to repair a crack. This meant removing the magnetic pick up. Everything was put back into place. It has spark both sides, and the injectors are working, but it wont start. When cranking it gives the occasional cough but no go. Any suggestions, Phil

Hi, Pki17308 and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the enricher.
5. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
6. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
7. Discharged battery, check 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.
8. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and module.
9. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.
10. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty ignition coil, ignition module or sensors (MAP, CMP, CKP, O2 and/or BAS).
11. Security alarm needs a reset.
For more information about your issue, please visit the websites below. Good luck and have a nice day.

Has the bike been dropped so as to bend the bars? Has the grip been pushed out so far that it binds on the cover? If it has bar end weights, maybe the screw holding the weight is not straight.
Try to get the factory repair DVD. I have the DVD for the 1200 models, which does not include your bike, but every model I look at has bar end weights held by a bolt.

SOURCE: I recently purchased a 2000

Blue smoke is caused by engine oil entering the cylinder area and being burned along with the fuel air mixture. As with white smoke, just a small drop of oil leaking into the cylinder can produce blue smoke out the tailpipe. Blue smoke is more likely in older or higher mileage vehicles than newer motorcycles with fewer miles.How did the engine oil get inside the cylinder in the first place? The car has many seals, gaskets, and O-rings that are designed to keep the engine oil from entering the cylinder, and one of them has failed. If too much oil leaks into the cylinder it sometimes cause's a misfire (engine miss) in that cylinder, Using thicker weight engine oil or an additive designed to reduce oil leaks might help reduce the amount of oil leaking into the cylinder.you can also get the pots pressure tested just to see if you have warn rings, or even leaky valve seals as this will cause the same fault, to find out if its the rings, just pressure test them first remove the spark plug,pressure test that pot, then record the reading, then pour some oil into the pot ( make sure you disconnect HT leads to stop it from running) then test again, if it is way higher then the rings are warn and need replacing, if it is roughly the same, a couple of psi/bar than the first test then its ok...hope this helps,

It could be brake linings, ABS or anything to do with engine management. If you do not service the bike yourself, I would get it booked in for a service at your local BMW dealership. They usually lend a bike if you need one.
Hope that helps.

hi, it seems tha you have a blocked breather on you engine, as pressure builds up it has to come of somewhere. Check all breathers coming out of the engine.Also depending upon molleage your pistons may be letting some compression go to the engine "belly"
Good luck

Info from PDF files located on Sportcrafts website under manuals.
E3 - No speed sensor reading. Unit shuts down. This is the most difficult repair diagnose. The speed
sensor is connected to the frame of the treadmill near the drive pulley on the front roller. There is a
small magnet on the side of the pulley wheel. The sensor tip must be no more than 5mm from the
magnet. If for any reason the distance is greater than 5mm the treadmill will shutdown
Adjust or replace speed sensor.
Treadmill: Speed Sensor Replacement
1. Make sure your treadmill is unplugged before you begin.
2. Remove the motor cover located in the front of your treadmill, it is held on by a few screws.
3. Locate your speed sensor; it is the small T shaped part with a red and black wire coming from it.
4. Remove the 2 screws in the speed sensor and remove the old sensor.
5. Place the adjustment holder on the frame with the open holes facing the pulley wheel, the prongs facing
up and way from the pulley wheel. Insert the screws but don't tighten fully.
6. Now place the speed sensor over the prongs with the square part facing the pulley wheel and the red and
black wire to the far right.
7. Plug the treadmill back in and slide the speed sensor until it is 5mm from the magnet inside the pulley
wheel, you may have to do this several times until you can position it so it no longer shuts down. Use 2
nickels to figure out the spacing. The width of 2 nickels is 5mm.
8. Once you find the correct position tighten the screws all the way; being careful not to touch any of the other electronics
9. Place the motor cover back on and enjoy your machine.
Also:
Use an epoxy to glue it. It is a plastic that is difficult to adhere to.

Motor runs but nothing turns on


If the console takes batteries, replace them. If this does not work or your console does not require batteries, check the reed switch or optic sensor. Reed Switch: Unplug the treadmill and remove the motor hood cover. The reed switch is mounted on the frame next to the front roller pulley. There is a magnet glued into the front roller pulley. When adjusting the reed switch, make sure it is pointing directly at the magnet. Move the tip of the reed switch within 1/8" of the magnet. Also, check to see that the wire is not damaged, and is connected to the console.
Optic Sensor: Unplug the treadmill and remove the motor hood cover. The optic disk and sensor are located either at the end of the motor or the right hand side of the front roller. The optic disk spins between two sensors on the optic switch. The disk must spin freely without touching either sensor. The sensors can be moved by loosening the adjustment bolt holding the switch to its bracket. The switch can then be slid. Center the disk. 11_13_2011_11_53_47_am.gif11_13_2011_11_54_16_am.gif

Kenmore Side by Side Refreg. The front part, especially the magnet that close the doors are very hot.


Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today. That sounds like the condenser fan motor failed or the condenser is dirty. Remove the lower cover in front and clean and on back of unit remove cover and see if the fan is running when the compressor is on. It will only run when the compressor is on if that fan motor fails everything will be hot. If the motor failed leave the back cover off and a small fan blowing in there so the compressor doesnt over heat and fail. You can order one from sears parts.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..

What do I need for a tune up for my 2003 Lexus GS 300? I want to shop @ Wal-Mart for most of the content (I work there) and have the car running LOVELY lol. Please help me


To do a "Tune-up" you will need 6 spark plugs, a throttle body gasket, an air filter, an air compressor, a blow gun, a magnetic pick-up tool and a socket set with ratchet and extensions.
You must remove the intake air resonator, the #3 timing belt cover, the accelerator cable, the throttle control motor connector, the throttle position sensor connector, the accelerator pedal position sensor connector, the throttle body bracket and the throttle body. Then remove the spark plug cables and the ignition coils. You will then crack the spark plugs loose 1/4 turn and use the air compressor and blow gun to blow the debris out of the spark plug tubes so it does not enter the combustion chamber when the spark plugs are removed. Then remove the spark plugs. You will need the magnetic pick-up tool to fish the plugs out of the tubes once they are completely unscrewed.
Install new spark plugs and torque them to 13 ft.lbs (18 Nm)
Install throttle body with nw gasket. Install all other parts removed and connect all connectors.
Install intake resonator and new air filter.

Replaced transmission.motor turns but will not start


did you pull the crank sensor out of the transmission/engine? It has a magnetic pick up that reads off of the ring on the flywheel. This sensor is adjustable so take care when removing to see if it was cracked .When you put it back in just put a piece of match book cover and stick it to the reading end of the sensor, this should give you proper clearance between the flywheel and the crank angle sensor... Common problem, good luck Jeff
