Your ABS is off line - this can happen when the battery gets weak or when the wheels spin at different rates while the engine is running. In fact, you can force this error condition to happen while the bike is up on your service (Wunderlich) stand: Turn on the engine, shift into first gear (be careful here). Spin the front tire in the opposite direction of travel. the ABS will come off line and the lights will flash. You generally have to take the bike over to the shop to have this reset, but there is an alternative. There is a company in South Africa called Hex Code that makes a device called the GS-911. You can hook this up to your wiring harness and connect to it with a computer, Windows Mobile device or a Blackberry via Bluetooth. From the software interface, you can reset codes like your ABS error as well as view and log other values. Check out the site: http://www.gs911usa.com/ They have a video showing the whole enchilada. Also, go over to Chromeheads.org and sign up. See you there - my ID is grant111 - send me a PM!

My 04BMW 1200CL has idling problem. It works great on high RPM, but on low RPm the engine stalls. BMW dealer has checked the bike but could not come up with any remedy. Any suggestion please?


Hi, Homatec this is not rocket science you have a simple basic issue my suggestion is you contact customer service at the BMW factory politely explain your bike won't idle and you dealer does not know how to fix it finish by asking the question "what should I do?"
that should light a fire under someone's rear end at your dealership and in a blink of an eye they will fix your bike meanwhile, the following applies to carbureted also fuel injected models and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, 9 volts or lower.
2. Faulty alternator/generator and or voltage regulator.
3. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Faulty main circuit breaker or ignition switch, check for loose connections and continuity.
5. Faulty system and or ignition relay, check for continuity.
6. Faulty ignition coil, ignition/electronic module.
7. Faulty CKP, CPS, CMP, MAP, TPS, O2, or BAS sensor, corroded, loose or broken wire connector pins/sockets.
8. Water or dirt in the fuel system, carburetor or filter.
9. . Restricted, blocked or kinked fuel line.
10. Fuel tank empty.
11. The gas cap is not venting properly or fuel tank venting system blocked.
12. A faulty Fuel Pump, pressure regulator and or fuel injectors.
13. Vacuum line from intake manifold to petcock broken, cracked, or not attached, carburetor vent line plugged.
14. Needle and seat stuck closed in the float bowl.

I have rattle problem with my BMW R1200 Montauk motorcycle. It sounds fine on starting from cold but once engine gets hot a rattle develops. Williams BMW Manchester have suggested it could be exhaust...


I have seen a few of the R1200C bikes with this rattle.... There is a cat. converter in the exhaust system and it sits between the pipes approx. under the transmission. This is the usual cause of the rattle.

Warm the bike up by riding it around for a while, then stop the engine and use a plastic face or rubber hammer to tap on the exhaust system in the area near the transmission to see if you can hear a rattle or something loose in the exhaust. This should give you some idea where the source of the rattle is.

There is no easy fix for this problem except replacement of the offending parts.
