My gs 1150 didn't want to start after washing it.After fault finding I was informed the hall transmittor sensor might be faulty. I then replaced the hall sensor unit. The GS still doesn't want to start. Where do I look ? I suspect there is no fuel ( i do hear the fuel pump when igtion is switched on) I did remove the one injector and press the start button to see if the injector spray fuel but it doesn't What can I look at?

Hi, Sdevilliers and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the enricher.
5. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
6. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
7. Discharged battery, check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
8. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and module.
9. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.
10. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty ignition coil, ignition module or sensors (MAP, CMP, CKP, O2 and/or BAS).
11. Security alarm needs a reset.

Check your owners manual for location of your fuse box. You will probably find connections for accessories. If not make sure you use an inline fuse on the positive connection and then ground to the frame.....Good Luck and Nice Bike!

SOURCE: throughout bearing failiure on my '01 1150 gs...

it's not hard to do if you have the tools and torque wrench needed for the job. with the bike on it's center stand, remove the exhaust, rear wheel and then the lever giving access to the bearing. installation of the lever is the hard part. you must tighten and secure the lever bolts properly for safety (get a manual for tightening procedure and torque specs). bleeding the clutch is easy, ensure you use the right fluid.

Where are the earth points on a BMW r1150gs?

The main earth point to the motor is underneath the battery bracket. You will have to remove the battery and lift the bracket, which also holds the ABS pump, to properly access the earth point.

However, your problem sounds more like a failing Hall Sensor. These often work fine while kept cool, but as soon as they start to overheat, as they would when stationary, the will start failing.

Why does fuel pump work sometimes!

The fuel pump is controlled by the hall sensor on the front of the motor. If the pump is not working, the hall sensor could be faulty.

However, it could also be a sign of the fuel pump itself failing.
