Question about 2004 BMW R 1150 RT (ABS)

1 Answer

Can't get the revs below 3500rpm

Can't get the revs to drop below 3500rpm, not even on tick over.

The bike went in to my garage working fine but after getting the bike out 6 x weeks, this problem started.

I haven't messed with the bike therefore I have no idea why this problem has suddenly started.

The bike is a R1150RT 2003 with 14,000 miles on the clock, never had a problem before so can anybody suggest a cure please.

Somebody told me the engine management system might require an adjustment, does this sound possible ?.

Any assistance would be appreciated.
Thanks.

Remove the negative battery connection and leave it disconnected for about 15 minutes. That should reset your engine management system. I would try a different battery if you have one handy, or maybe put yours on a battery charger. For the problem to appear suddenly after six weeks without running the bike my best guess is the battery is not functioning properly.

Good luck.

Sounds like rev limiter at half throttle ttr90


I have just worked on a 2003 ttr90 for a friend and had a similar problem. when I got the bike it had set up for a few years so the fuel system was wrecked. after a thorough cleaning the bike would run fine up to about 3500rpm. then it would cut out much like a rev limiter. it was very consistant and I read some forums but none said anything about a rev limiter. I had also installed a carb kit. I decided to remove the carb and try again. I figured it was lacking fuel in the upper rpms so I raised the throttle cylinder needle as high as it would go. there are 3 notches to set it. the factory setting was in the middle. after I raised the needle it ran like new and turned through the rpm range perfectly. hope this helps someone.

I have a 125 pit bike and it ticks over fine but when you rev it it backfires does any body no how to fix it.


You can check ur values but some bike do make a we ticking from the values and it will back fire when revved up because of the extra fuel once revved that hasn't brine burn as it revs back down to idle speed.

Just check on your air ducts. When the bike is staionery it will idle rev and even run well on the dyno, but on the open road the airducts must be in and instadled or mounted correctly

Vw polo maintains engine revs when foot is off the accelerator.


You need to check the cable the runs from the gas pedal to the engine, it might be rusty and need some drops of penetrating oil at the point it meets with the engine accelerator valve.

Replaced battery, bike cranked, after riding 4 miles, just ticks


check battery leads (both ends) , Then make sure battery is charged 100% (verry important) Get out your (Digital) volt meter set it to DC volts Connect leads to the Battery, it should have at least 12.6 v , Watch meter and start engine, if meter drops below 10.0 volts your battery may be weak and will have to be replaced, or your starter is'nt mechanicaly efficient and will have to be fixed or replaced. While engine is running note voltage should be 12.6-13v volts, then rev engine to 3000 RPM , meter should read 13.5- 15 vdc. If not you have a problem with your stator or regulator/rectifier.
