Question about 2002 BMW R 1150 RT (ABS)

1 Answer

Intermittent Throttle response.

I live in Wales in the UK and own a 2005 R1150rt. The bike has started to occasionally die on pulling away from a stop. **** violently on initial acceleration (usually just one hard ****) and then have like a stuttering effect on the throttle at constant revs around the 4.5 mark..
Anybody experienced this and solved the problem?

Thanks for taking the question..

Starting problem

it could be your mass airflow sensor could be dirty. clean this and your throttle body out with carb cleaner and see if that works. Other sensors that might cause this problem include the O2 sensors, or the idle control motor. If this does not fix it then the alternative would be to replace the throttle body unit.

Daytona 650 Dies At Idle

First thing that came to my mind is the AIC Valve, If it's not that, you may want to check out the idle control system (I forget what it's called.... I can check if you want.) It's attached to the throttle bodies on the right hand side and it's basically a set of motors (maybe part of the choke system) My bike is throwing a code for it, and it will die every once in a while (still can't ride it, but at idle) And if I hold the throttle open at all, it'll be fine

and had the bike souped for it. Anyway the throttle is SUPER touchy.. You breath on it and it takes off.. Because of this I ended up dumpin it 30 min after I got on..haha... My question is is there a way to stiffen up the throttle so that i have to crank the grip harder to give it gas? I am very inexperienced, and when it took off, i tensed up, hittin the throttle even harder. I know i will appreciate the the responsiveness when I get more experience, but i dont want to die in the thanks for you help! ,UYou need to learn to hold on to the bike with your legs, so you aren't pulling on the bars during acceleraion. The throttles are supposed to be easy to turn, so that it will snap completely closed when you let off. You can replace the throttle cam (the part that the cable attaches to) with a slower-opening unit that will give you more control. The amount you have to turn the throttle from closed to full-open will stay thesame, but it will open slower in the first half of the throttle pull, keeping you from getting such an abrupt surge of power. Once you get a little more time on the bike, you won't have this issue any longer. You will learn proper throttle control, and your wrist will get used to the throttle pull. ,,,
