The electronic fuel injection system and electronic ignition MA 2.4 are controlled by a Bosch motronic computer.
That being said,
Have the dealer check the fuel injectors.
If they are good,
Have them check the ignition module.

The gears on a motorcycle run in this order: first, neutral,
second, third, fourth and fifth. When you are moving, shifting up from
first gear will skip over neutral and shift you right into second gear.
The only time that shifting up from first will get you into neutral is
when you are not moving.
Pull in the clutch lever and tap the gear lever down until
it stops. This will signify first gear. Pressing the gear lever down
will shift you down one step and pressing it up will shift up one step.
Tap the gear lever up one click while still holding in the clutch. This will put the bike into neutral.
Start the bike. The bike needs to be in neutral to start.
Hold in the clutch lever and tap the shifting lever down to shift to first gear.
Release the clutch slowly and give it just enough gas to get moving.
Listen to the motor to know when you need to shift. If the
engine is making a low grumbling noise, then it will need to be shifted
down. If it is making a high squealing noise, then it needs to be
Could be so many things, I know on modern Harleys there is a shut off relay that turns off the engine if the bike is on its side. If that switch goes out, the motor won't run. Probably have to take it to the dealer.
sounds to me like the carb needs sorting, either the float height needs setting or the needle valve is leaking. to test if it is either of them try turning the fuel off and start it, if it runs a lot better then thats your prob. T
Clymer lists a manual covering the R1200C as item #M5033.
the BMW factory manual is available from your BMW dealer in CD.
You need a special bleed fitting to bleed the clutch on your R1200C motorcycle. Other than the special fitting, the clutch bleed process is very conventional. I can't locate the part number for the speacial fitting right now, but a goood BMW dealer can order it for you.
It most probably just needs a good ride to clean the cob-webs out. But, check your battery terminals to make sure they are clean, make sure your battery is fully charged. Then take it for a series of short runs so that if it ***** itself, you are not far from home. If it now starts to show signs of improvement, then get it out onto a freeway where you can idle along a 110 kph and it should come good. If there is no improvement, then get an auto-electrician or a bike mechanic to run a multi-meter over it to make sure that the electics are OK. Only then start looking at the carbys, it is rarely their problem.
