Question about 2006 BMW R 1150 R
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.

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.

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"
