If you have determined the batt is good leads are tight electrolite (distilled water) level is ok the part to look at is the voltage regulator with the help of the stator and rotor(alternator) it charges the battery if you have no power coming out to charge the battery then the regulator is bad just replace it no authorized service needed just the part hope this helps please give us a rate have supplied 50 soulitions and only recived 8 votes

Just changed the battery in 04 R1150 gsa. Now it runs very rough. What did I do wrong?

To change the battery, you have to remove the fuel tank. In doing so, you are disturbing the throttle cable on the RHS and pulling it out of its housing.

This is what it should look like.

R 1150 gs Adventure , no spark no injection . Fuel pump works fine , triggers checked with GS 911 looks good

Hi, Spanidishar if you have a CKP sensor it needs compression to send the correct signal to the ICM/ECM, make sure both spark plugs are in heads and use a grounded third plug to check for spark or hold spark plug cable close to spark plug in the head. If still not getting spark the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. 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.
3. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
4. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting / leaking, spark plug cable connections loose.
5. Faulty ignition coil or ignition / electronic module
6. Failed CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.
7. Faulty ignition switch.
8. Security alarm failing to disarm needs reset

BMW R1150 GS 2004 engine stops running, spark plugs are dry, fuel pump runs and stops will not crank

Do you have spark? take out one plug,hold it against the engine with a non-conductive tool and crank the bike.If you have spark spray some gas into both chambers through the spark plug holes tighten them up and see if the bike will bark.If it does you have a fuel delivery problem,either the fuel pump will not bring the pressure up enough or the injectors are plugged (did you buy some gas somewhere out on a ride you don't normally stop at),or the ECM isn't telling the injectors to pulse. Go for the simplist thing first and that would be the fuel punp,this you can do yourself although you must know but now(like all us beamer owners) BMW stands for Break My Wallet.Nothing will be cheap so you just might want to take it in and have them do a diagnostic for you,and replace the parts yourself. This way they can make sure the ECM is 100% and narrow it down for you.I teach auto and this is what I had to do.Best of luck to you and let me know how you make out.

Where can i buy the chiptuning for the bmw r1150 gs 2004 adv?

Hi, Leoborgo 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.

Brake failure light.

This is normal. Its part of the start up diagnostics where the sensors needs to see the wheels rotate 1 or 2 revolutions to verify proper functioning of the ABS system.
