Question about 1990 BMW R 100 RT
Was an ex-UK police bike and then in another life got written off. Been standing for years waiting to be loved.
Now I want to ride it, brakes seem to be "stuck", and the electrics "go crazy".
When I connect the battery Christmas starts, hazards come on flashing on the display, when I try indicators both come instead of only one, in other words there is anarchy in the electrics.
Christmas tree syndrome (flashing lights and all) is usually the result of a bad earth.
Start at the battery check all earth connections, especially at the motor and froame.
I am sure you will find some corrosion.
