I don't know the bike but I doubt it is much different in principle than many others. The first possibility to consider is whether any immobiliser is functioning properly and is being properly disarmed before attempting to start. The owner's handbook would be a good place to begin...

Once you know the immobiliser is disarmed and power is flowing to the parts it is supposed to flow to, using the circuit diagram, the various supplies and grounds can be checked and using an oscilloscope check the output from the various sensors as applicable (crankshaft, camshaft).

Even though the bike has never been outside it might not have been immune from the effects of damp and condensation that can defeat many moisture barriers. It isn't unusual for electronic unit and sensor terminals to become dull, oxide coated and a barrier to current flow...

Easiest way would be to install a switch between the lights and the high beam switch. That way it would still come on only when high beams are on but you could turn them off. Alternately you could rewire them completely so they run only off of a switch, but then you would have to tun them on and off manually all the time. ---> expect to be pulled over for not dimming your lights when you encounter an oncoming police car and you forget they are on.

Could it be "ABS"?

You have not provided much information to go on so it is very hard to give you any help with this. For example, what do you mean by cut out. Do you mean the engine stops or the starter motor stops. Any where have you got the feedback from. Is it a diagnostic from the computer, or just a well meaning friend who is guessing. Questions like this are very hard to answer without a lot of information so you need to try and give as much as possible. If it is a fuse that is tripping, then this will be due to an overload on the circuit and you will need to get someone with the skills to diagnose it, such as a BMW repairer.

I don't know anything about it, but I read other discussions that included owners and mechanics damaging the device when servicing it.

Your best bet is to join a forum on BMW motorcycles and ask if anyone has one or the pdf files for one. Otherwise you are going to have to choke up the cash.

Hey Robin,
When you collapsed your suspension, it hydraulically "locked" down.. now that it has returned to normal, it should be long as it works smoothly and does not bind... careful.. rubber side down=always!!

I would think continuity or not I doubt if the measurement s would be that critical just make sure it has power going trough it and to it.

The threads are bad. If you cannot get under the head of the plug or use vice grips to pull it out, then you are going to have to remove the whole sump pan.

BMW Motorcycles | 56 views | 1 helpful votes

if you can get the specifications they can be tested
( best done by a service center with the equipment)
generally a clean using vinegar will remove the oxide build up that affects their performance unless it is a wiring problem in which case , replacement will be required
be careful as there are 2 oxygen sensors in use
one has 4 wires and is a heated oxygen sensor and the other is an oxygen sensor with 2 wires
