There are a few write ups over at BMW Sporttouring.com Use the search feature there to look.

Other option is to buy a factory service manual from a BMW dealer and read through the section on removal of the transmission, clutch etc. You might find a copy of the manual at Ebay etc.

It is not a job for a shade tree mechanic however.... you need a fairly complete set of tools etc and a way to support the bike from underneath the engine while you hinge up the whole rear frame and remove the trans to access the clutch.

Good Luck!

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.

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.
