Slow down and spell correctly and describe the problem clearly as I am afraid I do not know precisely what you are trying to say. What is the actual oil level??

SOURCE: Oil level above full line

It's quite possible that when you fill the motor you are checking the oil level shortly thereafter, i.e. within 10 minutes, or you are filling the oil and checking what the level is BEFORE starting the motor (in this case the oil has not had chance to circulate and drain back in to the sump). Once the bike stands for an extended period (a couple of hours or overnight) you will find that the oil has drained from the head of the motor, and other places, back into the sump and therefore shows at a higher level in the sight gauge.

If it was stored with fuel in the tank:

1. The fuel filter should be replaced
2. You may to replace the fuel delivery system coming out of the tank
3. Remove the plug in the carb and reset the idel mixture

I just bought one store for 6 years - my issue is the bike will n ot idel but runs on the road like a bat out hell.

SOURCE: Engine knock at high revs

Sounds like Pre-ignition, aka Detonation, aka Engine knock. Carbon deposits build up on the head, valves and piston. They can get hot enough to ignite the fuel before the spark plug has a chance to. This is the Pre-ignition noted above. This is VERY hard on the engine. Take the head off the cylinder then beat the valve area with with a hammer followed by aggressively beating the top of the piston. Pre-ignition does the same thing. Not good for the top end, and not good for the crankshaft. Use only good quality premium gas. Change to a spark plug one heat range colder than the stock plug. Seal up any air leaks on the intake system. Running a lean fuel mix means running hot.

A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!

Call your local dealer and have them run your vin( Vehicle Identification Number ) through HD Net to see if you have any outstanding recalls. There was a recall on the circuit breaker and the ignition switch around that time of production. better to be safe than sorry.

Will soft lowers help with updraft wind?


Hi Anonymous, you can try them but might interfer with engine cooling. Buy an oil dip stick that has a temperature gauge on it, normal oil temperature is 180-220 degrees, also consider installing an oil cooler. Good luck

Where do I check my transmisson fluid?


Fluid Level Checking Procedure for all Transmissions without a Dipstick:

  1. The transmission temperature must be between 30°C and 50°C before checking can begin. Use the DIS or the MODIC to determine the transmission temperature.
  2. The vehicle must be level and without load. With the engine running, switch on the air conditioning. This will increase the idle speed and ensure that all oil passages in the transmission are filled with oil.
  3. Step on the brake firmly, apply parking brake fully and move the selector lever through each gear position, pausing briefly in each gear.
  4. With the engine running and the selector lever in Park position, remove the filler plug located on the transmission (see picture for location). If a small stream of oil runs out, the fluid level is correct.
  5. If no oil runs out when the filler plug is removed, the fluid level is too low. Add oil until it starts to overflow.
  6. With the engine running, reinstall the oil filler plug and tighten to proper torque. (Refer to section below for proper tightening torque)
#1 is the drain and #2 is the filler

How do you check the oil level on the 2002 BMW r1150r?


Just put the bike up on it's stand or use the kick stand with a shim under to get the bike near level.
Then use a flash light and look low on the left side of the engine and you'll
see a small round flush mounted glass the size of a nickle.
The oil should appear dark on the bottom half of that sight glass and if properly filled said level will cut right through the middle of the glass...if the dark line is below half then add oil!

2004 1200 r oil light came on killed the starter fulll of oil?


The oil light should come on when you turn the key on, then go out when the engine starts. It is NOT an oil level light, it shows PRESSURE.

Your "click" is a bad/corroded connection on the starter terminals , battery terminals, low battery, bad wires, or a defective solenoid. Charge the battery. Disconnect the negative battery cable, then the positive. Remove the nuts holding the wires to the starter, clean all connections at the starter, frame and battery with a wire brush. Get them CLEAN!! Make sure the big cables are in good shape. If that doesn't fix it, you will need a solenoid. Maybe a starter and/or relay too.
