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..

When I start my 2003 Vstar 1100 Classic, and as i give it throttle during ideling, it dies out? Also as im driving my bike and i come to a red light and i down shift and the idle lowers, it dies out, but...


There are a few quick things to try before cleaning the carbs.

1.Clean your air filter, it may be choking out, trust me a dirty air filter will choke out a bike.
2.Check your spark plugs. If they are black and sooty, change them out. Its quick and less expensive.

I diagnosed a 2001 Roadking Fuel injected. Ran like ****, hardly any throttle response, died at idle.
the customer said he just had it serviced a month ago at the dealer.
I pulled the plugs and they were nasty. The dealer forgot to change out the sparkplugs. It Happens
I Put in a new set of spark plugs and the bike ran like new.
I've fixed a bunch of bikes in the past and this one always stuck in my mind because of the difference in performance.

Try the sparkplugs, i think its more likely to be that than the air filter.

R1150rt. after a fuel stop it died on the road, changed the fuel


Carburator clean up could help solve the problem, it seems some dirt may have entered the float chamber!
Blow the jets with compressed air.
Hope this helps!

Cylinders possibly cutting out, loss of power when accelerating


fuel problem the flots are a bit sticky and the bike is flooding under power this is a common problem

hope this helps

Seems like bike is running rich


The idle problem sounds like an idle adjustment. The surge may be the throttle cable, try spraying a lubricant from the top of the cable and work it back and forth to loosen and release any debris.

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

Throttle


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 process..lol.. 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. ,,,

Mechanically problem


I'm worried that something is mechanically wrong with my bike. While riding at just over 60 mph yesterday my bike died right on the highway. I was in 4th and was holding it just below the powerband (about 7k rpm's). As I started to accelerate just slighty (bringing it to 7.5) it completely stopped pulling. Wtf? I mean I twisted the throttle and there was absolutely no response nothing. I wish I had listened to the bike a little more right off the bat but I thought I had a flat tire from the way the bike was wobbling so badly and losing speed. By the time I had gotten over into a turn lane the bike was just struggling and coughing before finally cutting itself off. I tried to start it back up (afraid I had blown the motor or something) and it just sounded horrible and wouldn't start. Eventually I managed to get it going by revving it really high while I kept pushing the starter button. I had plenty of fuel (which was 'on') and my oil level is fine and was changed not too long ago. I'm completely lost as to what happened and why it's now running just fine, like nothing's wrong.,I'm guess its a fuel problem, ignition problem ussually dont go away on their own, but tend to stay. Possible causes: 1. Got bad gas with tons of water in it. If thats the case, it shouldn't happen again. 2. Obstruction in the air flow. Check around the air filter to see if there is a bird or a squirell or something in there. It would have to be big. 3. Something blocking the vent lines on the tank. If it happens again, stop and open the gas tank lid. If the problem goes away, thats the problem. Look for kinked houses. 4. A piece of gunk in the carburator blocking the jets. This could have dissolved by now, or it could float away from the jet then come back later. You would have to take apart and clean the carbs. Also, drain the gas, and check the inside of the tank for rust, or other debrees.. 5. Maybe the choke was left on? Sounds extreme, but who knows...,,,
