SOURCE: 2003 BMW R 1150 RT Engine bogs down on hard

I'm guessing the TPS is bad, located on the Throttle body. If that doesn't do it check fuel pressure, have had fuel pumps cause that problem esp if the bike has been in accident, cracks the fuel pump inlet tube causing it to lose pressure.

First remove the headlight assembly and the bolts, nut and the washers attaching the outer fairing piece to the windshield and inner fairing piece. THEN loosen the four bolts attaching the light bracket and the outer fairing piece to the fork brackets. Remove the upper bolts but leave the lower ones in place. Cover the fender.

Then install the five windshield fasteners through the outer fairing, the windshield and the inner fairing. THEN tighten the four stud nuts to secure the fairing to the brackets, being sure to have the inner and the outer fairing properly aligned at their outside edges. THEN position the light bracket so that the slots fit around the upper fork bracket bolts and thenalign the lower fork bracket mounting holes and replace the two lowering fairing mounting bolts through the light bracket and the outer fairing and the inner fairing and screw them into the lower fork bracket. THEN make sure that the rubber seal around the inner fairing is properly seated and not pinched and tighten the four fairing attachment bolts to 12-13 foot pounds (16 -19 Nm). THEN tighten the windshield screws to 4 inch pounds (0.45 Nm) but no more than this amount starting in the middle and working outwards on both sides. THEN reinstall the headlight assembly.

Is it at all possible too convert an R1100R into


I think there are quite a few parts that has to be changed, so this will be a costly project. If you can get your hands on a cheap RT with a damaged engine, maybe you can do it but it is a huge project, even if the engine is basically the same. It is not only the fairing that differs.
I would think it is better to sell your R and buy an RT, if you want one.
