Question about 2001 BMW R 1100 R
It seems harder to start and when you go down the road it will seem fine for a few minutes then it falls on it's face and then recovers. I've put lucas and sea foam gas treatment and high test gas to no avail. it has around 12,000 miles.

There are some fuses under the seat area at the back of the bike, but doubtful that this is the problem. You did check the "kill" switch on the handlebars?
More likely old stale gas in the fuel pump and filter/pressure regulator. Try cranking the bike with the starter and hold the throttle open slightly to get some of the stale gas out of the injector and associated fuel line.
I had one of these bikes as a demo at the BMW dealer that I worked at and it was a great machine.... Hope you can get out on yours more often.
