Question about 2004 BMW R 1150 GS Adventure
Hi, Spanidishar if you have a CKP sensor it needs compression to send the correct signal to the ICM/ECM, make sure both spark plugs are in heads and use a grounded third plug to check for spark or hold spark plug cable close to spark plug in the head. If still not getting spark the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. 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.
3. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
4. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting / leaking, spark plug cable connections loose.
5. Faulty ignition coil or ignition / electronic module
6. Failed CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.
7. Faulty ignition switch.
8. Security alarm failing to disarm needs 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!

If it works fine at lower rpm, it could be a fuel delivery issue. Is there a valve that lets gas out the tank? There's likely a screen that keeps tank crud from getting into the valve assembly and going into your carbs. Empty the tank, remove the valve, clean the screen.

Do you have spark? take out one plug,hold it against the engine with a non-conductive tool and crank the bike.If you have spark spray some gas into both chambers through the spark plug holes tighten them up and see if the bike will bark.If it does you have a fuel delivery problem,either the fuel pump will not bring the pressure up enough or the injectors are plugged (did you buy some gas somewhere out on a ride you don't normally stop at),or the ECM isn't telling the injectors to pulse. Go for the simplist thing first and that would be the fuel punp,this you can do yourself although you must know but now(like all us beamer owners) BMW stands for Break My Wallet.Nothing will be cheap so you just might want to take it in and have them do a diagnostic for you,and replace the parts yourself. This way they can make sure the ECM is 100% and narrow it down for you.I teach auto and this is what I had to do.Best of luck to you and let me know how you make out.
