Hi Owen,

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!

SOURCE: 96 cbr f3. removed gauges now bike will not run right.

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.

What could be the 'Metal-on-metal' noise coming from the motor of a BMW 2010 R1200 GS motorcycle, when it is started from cold.-Part 2 of original question.


Hi, Michael assuming you meant minus 20 c after sitting for a week you hear a one time metal on metal abnormal noise for a few seconds is something you document with all the pertinent details and move on, if it happens again document that incident and compare the two, if it happens a third time take your bike and documentation to your local dealer for analyses. My advice is to switch to a synthetic oil Mobil 1 or Amsoil if you are currently using a nonsynthetic.

What are the future problems of the BMW 650i?


The future problems? Now that really narrows down the possibilities. The biggest problem is running out of money once the warranty expires. The second biggest problem would be letting the wife or kids drive it.
Maintenance, maintenance, maintenance. These are very high maint. cars.
Electric seat motor and cables should go kaput. As will the drivers side electric window. The rear tailights will get water in them and quit. The oxygen sensor will quit leaving a check engine light on. The Bosch electric fuel pump IN the tank will quit as well, leaving you stranded. Get it replaced every 40-60 thou miles.

06 Road King Classice shuts off when in 4th gear beloe 50mph


It's normal for the check engine light to take from 0 to a couple seconds to turn off. The computer runs a system check. Put an oil pressure gauge on the bike and watch it closely. If your pressure drops when the bike loses power, the engine may be locking up from lack of oil. Another possibility is your lean-angle cut-off switch is defective. The switch cuts power to the bike in case you lay it down. Harley also has had problems with their fuel injection system losing power for no apparent reason.
