Should be a main fuse that needs to be replaced. look at the fuses and find the one that is cooked.

also check the battery with a meter and see what voltage its reading. if reading only 10-10.5 volts DC, then you ruined a cell in the battery and needs to be replaced.

Wiring for battery


It sparks because there is a load ... something is on ... might be a problem with the start solenoid but I doubt it ... make sure key is off ... any unsewitched accessories (lights) are off, try again.

How do I replace a 1995 BMW K1100 LT Battery?


Disconnect the multiplug to the Motronic brain and move the wiring loom out if the way. Loosen the screw holding the brain to the battery frame and remove it. Loosen the long screws holding the battery in place and remove the frame. Put the seat down and go round to the battery side of the bike and remove the side panel. Now unbolt the battery terminals - neg first then positive. When free, remove the battery. Installation is the reverse process.

Sounds like you have a bad stator or rectifier. If you like to work on your own bike get a repair manual it will give you several test you can do. Charge the battery to full charge, take a volt meter and put in on the battery leads pos to plus and neg to ground. start the bike and watch the meter it should be putting out over 13 volts if it is not have your rectifier and stator checked by a pro. also check the compression valve cable it may be out of adjustment . I had one of those bike for 13 years a great bike

BMW K1200 LT CHARGED BATTERY BUT WHEN FITTING POS TERMINAL ITS OK BUT WHEN NEG TERMINAL FITTED STARTER TURNS OVER AND WONT STOP


You have either a starter relay or the solenoid is stuck. Since I don't know what make the starter is, that's about all I can tell you. Try putiing the bike in high gear and rolling it back and forth and turn the engine just a bit. Sometimes that "unsticks" a starter drive gear. Might work. Good Luck!
