Question about 2008 BMW G 650 Xchallenge

1 Answer

Fuel injection doesn't have the right software

BMW tells me that Berlin is working on the problem and that all xchallenge motorcycles have this problem. Motorcycle when you first start it up dies and sputters and doesn't run untill you have a few miles on it. Any suggestions?

    I HAVE A 2007 X MOTO THAT HAS SAME PROBLEM. I RIDE YEAR ROUND SNOW RAIN OR SHINE. THE COLDER IT IS THE WORSE IT RUNS (STALLING AT IDLE - POOR RESPONSE) JUST RECENTLY STARTED BACKFIRING AND STALLING OUT WHEN WARM. TAKING IT TO DEALER TO HOPEFULLY GET IT RESOLVED. IF I WOULD HAVE KNOWN BMW OUTSOURCED THESE ENGINES TO CHINA I WOULD HAVE CHOSEN ANOTHER BIKE

SOURCE: BMW motorcycle maintenance

to change the oil you need to remove the sump plug, located on the underside of the sump. the plug is a bolt on the botom of the engine. once the bolt is removd, oil will drain out rapidly so have a container ready to catch the oil.once drained put the sump plug back in and refil with new oil.

Check for a blockage in the fuel tank vent.
Run with the fuel cap cracked open - if it runs fine, try and work out where the vent is blocked.

Hi, Shaun and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, 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. Bank angle sensor tripped and ignition/light key switch not cycled to the "OFF" position and then back to the "ON" position.
5. Security alarm needs a reset.
6. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Electric starter shaft pinion gear is not engaging or over-running starter clutch slipping.
