Check to see if the throttle bodies still have the little rubber nipple covers on the underside of the body also the LH TB has a controller on it could be that?
Ask on UKGSER site, the user called Steptoe is hot on and owns a GS shop in London.
Stick with the bike as they really are fantastic.

It can only be one of three things (maybe 4!) - fuel, air, spark. It ran fine for 4 hours, the only thing that has changed is new fuel. I would check the fuel.
The 4th thing is - mechanical break in some component, but it being a BMW boxer and the fact you rode it for 4 hours without a hitch, I'm ruling that out - for now...

Engine only runs at idle


If it's a Chrysler/Dodge product, disconnect the battery for about 10 minutes and re connect it. Try starting, be sure the battery has a FULL charge when you do.

1995 dodge neon cuts out during normal driving runs at full throttle


hi I assume this is a fuel injection vehicle and if so it sounds a lot like you have a throttle body problem or throttle sensor problem ,have you also checked that the fuel filter is not blocked,remove the fuel filter and blow thru it in the direction of flow and if your cheeks blow up while blowing thru the filter it is blocked or restricted -replace.
hope that helps .

Try disconnecting the alternator for a few minutes.
It can run on just the battery that long.
It is possible the new alternator is producing too many spikes that disrupt the car's electronics.

In park the engine dies; only will run if given gas


It sounds like there is a problem with the Idle Air Control (IAC) valve. Its job is to open and let air into the manifold when the throttle is closed at idle. If it does not open, the engine dies at idle. The IAC is mounted on the throttle body. Possibly the valve is clogged or stuck, in which case it could be ok again if it is removed and cleaned. Or it is broken, and needs to be replaced. Or, there is a problem with its electrical connection, that needs to be traced. Good luck, let me know if you have any questions.

Wont start after 6 mos. I changed the spark plug, drained & added fresh gas, checked the fuel filter... Kicks over fine. Ran for 4 seconds, then it died. Always ran & started great before.


With a new plug and fresh gas it should start. Check to make sure there isn't a kill switch turned off or that the gas petcock from the tank to the carb is on.

How did you check the fuel filter? Disconnecting it from the fuel line that goes to the carb is the best way, making sure the gas is turned on under the tank. Bleed off a little gas into a can or something just to make sure the filter isn't plugged.

The last thing I'd do is take off the air filter and spray a little starting fluid in the carb. It may start and run several times if there is old gas in there somewhere. Remember the bowl on the carb is probably still full of old gas. After some fresh fuel reaches the plug it should start and continue to run.

(You might drain the bowl on the carb of ols gas before you go any further)

Good luck!
