Question about BMW R 1200 RT Motorcycles
Does the bike not start at all? You mentioned shifting to 2nd- does it still not fire if in neutral? A common problem is the side stand switch but this shouldn't be a problem when in neutral.
When you turn on your ignition, do you hear your fuel pump prime as per normal or is it silent?
I would also suggest checking for spark at a plug. This way around you would know if the problem is fuel or spark related.
Also take a test light and check the wiring to the injectors. If you pull off a connector, you should have power with ignition on and a negative pulse when cranking on the other terminal. If you have fuel pressure from your pump then with power and pulse you should have the system fueling.
Fuel, Spark and air- must run!! Give me some feedback with your results and hopefully I can guide you in the right direction. Good luck!

its probably put the bike in limp mode which limits the bikes performance while being diagnosed for problems.they cant be read now because you have removed the readout from the system. the meter in these bikes are an integral part of the entire elec. system. when you reinstall the meter, it will probably flash a "code" to show the problem it encountered. unhook the battery for about 5 min. then rehook and start bike. after warmup, it should run ok if all systems are goes.

Could be the fuel filter but I'd bet money on the fuel tank vent. Loosen your fuel cap and take a ride. Don't take the cap off, just loosen it a bit. If that cures the problem, buy a new fuel cap.
