Question about 2007 BMW R 1200 RT

1 Answer

Engine noise at idle speed

I have a 2005 BMW R1200RT. The idle speed is not very smooth, and now the lefthand side of the engine has developed a metallic tinkering sound which appears to disapear when the engine speed is increased.

Can any one help.

Sounds like it's time to adjust the valves. The noise you are likely hearing is due to valve train noise. I suspect you have loose valves. Also I would recommend making sure the carburetors are synchronized. If one side is off you will actually feel a roughness in the motor especially at idle.
When you remove the valve covers be sure to look for any dryness in the valve train. You want to make sure you're not having an oiling problem.
You'd be well off to just do a major tune up. Be sure to replace the spark plugs too.

R1200rt 2007 while riding the instrument clusters goes off and motor stops. switch ignition off then on press start switch engine turns a half a turn then instrument clusters goes off. eventually ok


Hi, Peter and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
2. Failed alternator/generator and or voltage regulator.
3. Loose or corroded battery terminals and or cables especially the "NEGATIVE" cable, look for loose, corroded, or broken connectors inside the cable harness at "BOTH" ends.
4. Failed main circuit breaker or ignition switch, check for loose connections and continuity.
5. Failed system and or ignition relay, check for continuity.
6. Failed ignition coil, ignition/electronic module.
7. Failed CKP, CPS, CMP, MAP, TPS, or BAS sensor, corroded, loose or broken wire connector pins/sockets.
8. Throttle cables and or idle speed improperly adjusted hot idle speed should be 950 RPM to 1000 RPM.
9. Fuel tank empty
10. Water or dirt in the fuel system, or clogged filter.
11. Restricted, blocked or kinked fuel line.
12. Failed fuel pump.
13. Failed pressure regulator.
14. Faulty or clogged fuel injectors.

Why is my1997 bmw Z3 1.9 start rough for 2min then is ok


The EGR valve opens when the engine is warming up, which allows exhaust to enter the intake manifold. This is essentially "extra air" coming into the engine. The engine has an "idle speed control" function, which is either a solenoid or small stepper motor connected to a valve that allows a controlled amount of air to "sneak" by the throttle plate in the throttle body. Fundamentally, it is the amount of air entering a fuel injected engine that controls engine RPM. A defective idle speed control ("ISC) motor or solenoid can cause the problem you stated. (I do not know which type is used in your BMW.) Often, a check engine light will illuminate of the engine computer cannot adequately regualte engine idle speed.
