Question about BMW K 1200 LT Motorcycles
I have check all the fuses, I have tested to see if there was power on the back side of all the fuses and there was. What else is there to check? Do I need to remove the switches to the seats and grips and check them? This all started after riding in a down pour rain storm for over 8 hrs. This is a 2001 1200 LT with 90,000 miles on it.
I am not sure if this will help however the Honda GL1800 experiences a similar problem when one of the heated components you mention fails because they are all wired in series. If one grip goes bad all stop working. Check for open circuit at the individual component connectors. Good luck

Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Initially, pls try recharging the battery again. Remove the connector to the voltage regulator. Start/run the bike. If it lasts more than "3-5 minutes" then you have just confirmed a defective regulator. The voltage regulator would look something like below image.
This page may give you additional insight.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Unstuff all those wires and ck the battery grnd for securement. If any welding was done, The grnd should have been removed, so there is that possibility. Good Luck- That's a nice bike.

SOURCE: Starter fuse. where is it? on
There isn't a fuse for the starter. The trouble you're having is most likely because of:
1) The main 30A fuse is blown. You found the spare, now all you've got to do is find where it goes. It should be in the vicinity of the starter relay (aka starter solenoid). Follow the positive battery cable, it will take you to the right spot.
2) Lose or corroded battery cable connections. Clean any corrosion from them and make sure they are securly connected to the battery.
3) The battery crapped out. These things have a tendency to suddenly give up and quit working without warning. Usually this occurs when the weather turns cold for the first time each season. Check the voltage. Normal voltage for a fully charged 12 volt battery is 12.7 ~ 13.5 volts. Less than 12.5 is suspicious.
4) Bad ignition switch or a bad electrical connection where the harness connects to the switch. There's a rectangular shaped, white plastic connector on the switch. Make sure it is connected securily to the switch and look for any signs of melting. If it looks deformed, disconnect it and scrape the corrosion from each electrical connection inside the plug with an Exacto knife or similar tool. While you've got it unplugged, check for battery voltage at the red wire inside the plug. If you've got voltage there, yet nothing works, the ignition switch is defective and must be replaced.

In order to obtain conclusive testing of the heated seat system, the Controller Area Network (CAN) data bus system must be checked.
The most reliable, efficient and accurate means to diagnose the heated seat system requires the use of a Scan Tool and the Service and Body Diagnostic Information.
Diagnostic logic is built in to the seat module and the instrument cluster (CNN) to help the person trying to locate the problem by the most efficient means possible. Anytime a problem is suspected, a Scan Tool should be obtained and used to retrieve any stored fault codes in the heated seat module and/or instrument cluster.
