SOURCE: Hi I was driving my 2008

Hi.

Check if there is power to the dash. If there is no power at all, check battery terminals, battery, then fuse box and ignition. You will need to check voltages in this order, use a test lamp. Ensure that battery cables are well tightened.

If the dash comes on, but the bike does not crank, it is either a problem with spark or with fuel.

If you have not done it yet, test the kickstand switch. The switch can be tested reading Volts at the two contacts with ignition on. If kickstand is up there must be volts on both ends. The part can also be tested by jumping it. Here a picture:

If the kickstand switch is not the culprit, check the fuel pump. Test fuel pressure using a gauge like this:Lisle 20300
Fuel pressure with bike revving a bit will be 40/45 psi.

Check if there is spark when you crank. If there is no spark check distribution.

Have also a look at the throttle potentiometer. See here replacement cover and pot.


Regards.

Ginko.

LAMPF displayed on control panel of my BMW R 1200 GS Adventure


Hi, Anonymous if your headlight is not working the first thing to check is the headlight bulb for damaged filaments then check your light circuit fuse, that being said the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty ground or power supply to headlight bulb socket.
2. Faulty hi/lo beam switch.
3. Faulty ignition switch.
4. Fuse is good but no continuity on both sides.
5. Faulty wiring between battery positive and headlight bulb socket.

My R1200C motorbike wont start ignitionand electrics seem to be AOK when starting makes a sound like a machine gun


Hi Cmarkovitch, it should be noted that in order to "PROPERLY" diagnosis any electric starter issue it is "IMPERATIVE" that you begin with a fully charged battery 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a proper load test, and the usual suspects are:
1. Battery terminals have loose or corroded connections.
2. Battery cables faulty due corroded or broken internal wiring at the cable connector especially the "NEGATIVE" cable which needs to be checked at "BOTH" ends.
3. Battery voltage, 12.5 volts or better,to the main circuit breaker to the ignition switch to the security/ignition fuse to the TSM/TSSM module to the engine stop/run switch to the starter button to the starter relay to the green wire that connects to the starter solenoid has dropped more than 1/2 volt.
4. With a voltmeter connected to the battery, the ignition switch in the on position, the kill switch in the run position, the starter button depressed, starter engagement should not bring voltage below 8-9 volts.
If a lower voltage is produced a proper battery load test should be performed with a load tester to validate battery integrity or battery replacement.
5. Faulty starter relay, check continuity.
6. Faulty starter solenoid, check contact plate and shoes for excessive electrical erosion/etching, refurbish as necessary or invert contact plate and use the virgin backside. Check contact shoes for being loose. Replace solenoid if the negative function is still a final outcome.
7. Faulty starter, bench test starter with a 12-volt battery if negative function check, decontaminate and undercut armature commutator segments as necessary, check segments with an ohm-meter probe each one and the segment next to it for shorts. Have the armature tested with a growler and field coils, and brush plate with an ohm-meter for opens, shorts or grounds. Replace brushes if less than .438" It is generally cheaper to overhaul/refurbish a starter motor than buy a new one.
For more information about your issue, please visit the websites below. Good luck and have a nice day.
