2003 BMW K 1200 LT

I have a 2003 BMW K 1200LT and the idle slowly moves high to low, low to high (not too high) but continues going back and forth consistantly. What could the problem be?

Idle stabilisation valve or TPS (Throttle Position Sensor)
You can reset the TPS - Turn the bike on, but dont start it.
Turn the throttle to full on - release, do this three times.
Turn the bike off.
Turn on and start.
The idle stabilisation valve can be cleaned, but a replacement is relatively cheap and easy to replace. They get gunged up and liberal so can't close fully - the ECU tries to open and close it to the required setting, hence the surging idle. Use carb cleaner around the butterfly and stepper motor areas and see if that sorts it.

Get a set of spanners and have at it? If you're uncertain in your ability a workshop manual should give you a more detailed procedure. The gauge cluster will need to be disassembled after removal to locate the offending bulb. Use caution as some clusters have damping fluid that can leak out if the cluster is stored in an odd orientation.

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!

Check throttle and choke controls are not sticky and air filter. If this is the injected engine the high pressure system seems at fault, you could try an injector cleaner additive that removes gum. consistent warm running suggests not a major problem
