This is common on all bikes of this era. A new battery will resolve this problem for a while until it starts to drain down after 6 months to a year or so. The problem is the ABS system needs a good solid 12.5V or better to work at start up. This is the same time the starter also needs good power which puts a heavy load on the battery. They both end up competing with one another and the ABS computer creates a fault but the bike still starts. By starting it again and again helps because the battery is quickly charging each time you start. So, a new battery can help or put your bike on a trickle charge from time to time. The problem will never be fully resolved. You need to eliminate the fault before riding or your ABS system is non functional.

    I had the same problem - big twins are hard on batteries! I now have the bike plugged into a battery doctor all the time even if its only a couple of days between rides. This keeps the battery topped up and i havent had the problem since.

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Oil tank/pan overfilled.
2. Restricted oil return line to oil tank/pan.
3. Restricted breather operation.
4. Restricted oil filter.
5. Piston rings badly worn or broken.
6. Valve guides are worn and or seals worn, crushed, missing, or have come of guide and is pumping oil through the valve guide.
7. O-ring damaged or missing from oil pump at crankcase junction (also results in poor engine performance). For more information about your issue, please visit the websites below. Good luck and have a nice day.

Hi, K3_gixxer and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the enricher.
5. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
6. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
7. 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.
8. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and module.
9. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.
10. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty ignition coil, ignition module or sensors (MAP, CMP, CKP, O2 and/or BAS).
11. Security alarm needs a reset.

How do I change brake pads on a bmw r1100rt year


I asume form the question you are handy but maybe not experirenced in this repare project If you have never done this before I would take it to a tech days training meeting. serch the web for rallys and other groups. It is fairly easy to do this job as like all disc brakes systems, but the setails are important and this is nothing to mess with unless you are very confident.
