Question about 1976 BMW R 60-7
Bike has been sitting since 1984. I was able to change some parts and replace the carb, and a few other items including the battery. I am able to get it to crank over and it almost starts but just wont get there. What should I do next?
Run a compression check looking for stuck valve or rings. A motor will not run without compression. 30 years will do strange things to a motor.

SOURCE: bike wont start when it gets below 60 degrees if its been sitting for a few hours. i go to start it and it tries to turn over, but battery eventually dies. sometimes, if i go to start it a few minutes
First thing you need to do is check the battery. State of charge,disharge,charging. Find a friend or shop with a charging system analyzer,or use a volt/ohm meter.

he range of issues are to great starting with fuel. Try to spray the air box or carbs with starting fluid, check spark, check clutch safety switch, check kickstand switch, if engine is cranking excessively fast it may be a timing chain issue. Hope this helps!!!
