Question about 2008 BMW K 1200 R
I have not been able to start my K1. I replaced the plugs, they are getting spark. Cleaned the ground connections and just cleaned the ignition that is fitted to outside of the battery back.
The fuel pump is working, but all I’m getting is some back-fire.
Any recommendations on where I should look and what must be tested? What are some of the common problems with starting a K1?
I would check the battery strength- if it is all lit up and you are getting ignition but it isn't starting, I would look to the battery first.
Have you tried jump-starting it with a car? Works for my K1200RS!
