Question about 1991 BMW K 75 S
Electrical failure on K75s. Starter won't turn over, no front lights, only '1' flash of left hand signal when you push any of the turn /cancel buttons!!!, no horn. However with a gear engaged and the bike rocked backwards and forwards it appears the starter motor disengages and allows all the electrics to work fine! It then starts fine but usually means I loose all the lights and only have the '1' flash of the left turn signal back again! Whats going on here?
If the motor rocked foward/backwards then things seemed to start working its not the starter motor. It sounds like the motor is resting or putting tension or have melted/shorted some electrical wires and when it rocks foward/backward releases the tension on wiring causing the random shorting. Check all your electrical wiring around the motor and make sure none look to be too tight or under pressure.Depending on you setup you may need to pull the fairings off for a full inspection
