Sounds more likely that you have a corroded gearshift pivot. Take apart the footrest/gearshift assembly, clean with a wire brush & lubricate

You have a shift fork going bad. Major repair. Sorry.

    Are you good friends with Donald Trump? How about a loan officer at the bank? The repair will probably cost around $1200.00. Call a BMW dealer and ask the cost assuming only the one fork is the problem. To fix it or sell it is your decision, I can't really help there.



    I don't get paid for my answers but I do take pride in them, and I am only trying to help. So if you will, > > A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!

Just changed the battery in 04 R1150 gsa. Now it runs very rough. What did I do wrong?


To change the battery, you have to remove the fuel tank. In doing so, you are disturbing the throttle cable on the RHS and pulling it out of its housing.

This is what it should look like.

Has the oil been changed since you got it back out on the road? An oil change might help flush any accumulated "crumb" out of your tranny.

Oil


Since the R1150 engine is entirely air cooled, standing still with the engine running for extended periods will quickly lead to high temperatures. This is normal and engine temperatures should be monitored to prevent excessive engine temp. This can lead to valve stem jamming in the valve guide, warping of heads, etc. I can see my engine temps increasing if I drive slowly (1st gear) in loose sand (high engine revs). You just have to monitor it. I haven't heard of anybody overheating an R1150 engine yet, but I suppose there is always a first time. Having an engine problem in the bush (here is South Africa we do a lot of off-road driving far away from civilization) is not a good idea.
