Question about 2003 BMW F 650 Dakar

Bike starts but won't idle

I left the parking light on and left for a few days. Came back to a flat battery, and stuck at the airport. I jumped from an idling car directly to the battery, but the bike wouldn't idle. Trucked the bike home, charged the battery but it still wont idle. I must have fried something. Does anyone know what needs to be changed to fix the problem. The local BMW dealer can't look at the bike for over a month and I start 6 weeks vacation with plans to ride from BC, Canada through Wa, Or and Ca maybe wrecked

I'm having a similar electrical/idling problem with my Dakar with 6K miles on it and 2 seasons on battery. What did you finally determine as cause?

I am not sure though, but just check the bike's manual for a FUSE. It is because I too had a bike but not a good one and I had some what similar issues. I found that the Fuse in the bike has gone. If the fuse has gone bad then the bike will not run So try changing the Fuse. If you have any more questions you can have a look at the link below.http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://faq.f650.com/GSFAQs/Photos/FuelInjectorPhotos/ThrottleCableAdjust.jpg&imgrefurl=http://faq.f650.com/GSFAQs/custom_fixes_for_s_and_s.htm&usg=__iPXXYSkvsJBDslHiFDaPQm1SMUY=&h=600&w=800&sz=54&hl=en&start=13&um=1&tbnid=nbW6uz0JKRUyEM:&tbnh=107&tbnw=143&prev=/images%3Fq%3D2003%2BF650%2Bdakar%2Bbike%2Bbattery%2Bcircuit%26hl%3Den%26um%3D1They have discussed the topic in bottom of the page.

Does this car have any electrical power? Check the 'Main' fuse in the box under the hood. It could also be listed at 'BATT' or 'ALT' fuse. If the car has no electrical power and you know the battery is good, make sure the cables aren't hooked up backwards. Try these things and let us know if it works.

I have a 2003 Deuce and my OEM battery went bad, when I would start it the check engine light would come on and then go off after about 30 seconds. Then it left me stranded, while driveing the bike went...


G'day.
Sound very much like a low charge rate(your bike is not recharging the battery).
You need to have the bikes charge rate checked.
Basically-your bike should charge at a rate of 13.4- 14.2volts(DC) when running.
If it's not- the battery will keep going flat.
The test is performed by starting the bike & placing a voltmeter across the battery to measure the output.
It's a relativily quick & easy test to perform that only takes a few seconds-but if the charge rate is low then its caused usually by the regulator or the alternator(stator).
If you have a multimeter-or know someone who does-then the test is pritty easy & you need to do that before you go any further.
If you do it yourself- set the meter to Volts DC at a range higher than 15volts(if the meter is not auto-ranging) run the bike with the volt meter probes touching the Battery(black probe to battery negative-red test probe to battery posative) & observe the voltage reading.
You want 13.5 to 14.2v.
If you can't do it yourself then an auto-electrician or bike shop should be able to do it while you wait for just a few dollars.(only the test though- if the charge rate is low then you have then other issues to solve)

I hope this was of some help
Kind regards Andrew Porrelli

Try charging your battery fully .idle running will take too long to charge the battery .Leaving your bike ticking over will not harm it oproviding it is not getting too hot through no air passing over the finning on the engine .
