How do i change the cam belt on a 2007 bmw r1200gs adventure motorbike

There is no cam belt. Cams are chain driven and you have to remove and strip the entire motor to change the chains.

First disconnect the positive battery cable.

Then extract this screw and remove the cover.

Next, remove the main starter cable and the small solenoid cable.

Wher will the starter motor be on a bmw 318

Pop the hood. Remove the air intake tubing from the engine using a flathead screwdriver, and set it to the side. This will expose the starter motor just below, mounted towards the firewall with several wires out of the top of it.

My R1200C motorbike wont start ignitionand electrics seem to be AOK when starting makes a sound like a machine gun

Hi Cmarkovitch, it should be noted that in order to "PROPERLY" diagnosis any electric starter issue it is "IMPERATIVE" that you begin with a fully charged battery 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a proper load test, and the usual suspects are:
1. Battery terminals have loose or corroded connections.
2. Battery cables faulty due corroded or broken internal wiring at the cable connector especially the "NEGATIVE" cable which needs to be checked at "BOTH" ends.
3. Battery voltage, 12.5 volts or better,to the main circuit breaker to the ignition switch to the security/ignition fuse to the TSM/TSSM module to the engine stop/run switch to the starter button to the starter relay to the green wire that connects to the starter solenoid has dropped more than 1/2 volt.
4. With a voltmeter connected to the battery, the ignition switch in the on position, the kill switch in the run position, the starter button depressed, starter engagement should not bring voltage below 8-9 volts.
If a lower voltage is produced a proper battery load test should be performed with a load tester to validate battery integrity or battery replacement.
5. Faulty starter relay, check continuity.
6. Faulty starter solenoid, check contact plate and shoes for excessive electrical erosion/etching, refurbish as necessary or invert contact plate and use the virgin backside. Check contact shoes for being loose. Replace solenoid if the negative function is still a final outcome.
7. Faulty starter, bench test starter with a 12-volt battery if negative function check, decontaminate and undercut armature commutator segments as necessary, check segments with an ohm-meter probe each one and the segment next to it for shorts. Have the armature tested with a growler and field coils, and brush plate with an ohm-meter for opens, shorts or grounds. Replace brushes if less than .438" It is generally cheaper to overhaul/refurbish a starter motor than buy a new one.

Show me how to remove starter motor bmw 318s tork bolt will not loosen

remove the dip stick tube and remove the upper screw from above
remove the bottom screw from the bottom.
some times the screw is stuck, you need to spray some lubricant and let it set for a while.
it's a tight spot so you need to turn the starter switch to top and move it downward on it mount.
