How does the bmw 2004 k 1200 gt cruse control work
To set the cruise control it is a two step process if it's not on yet. Step one is to turn it on by flicking the (usually) grey cruise button inward (towards the center of the handle bar, step two is to set the cruise control, this step has to be performed while riding above 25MPH, and it's to flick the now fully exposed tab either forward or backword. This should set the cruise control and the indicator on the dash should confirm it.
K1200gt head apparently needs shimms at huge cost accourding to the mechanic it has low compression but it runs beautiful,, no oil loss or tappet noise either, this was at the 100000 Kilometer service
Well, the shim adjustment must be done, the question is are you too late? I presume that you are talking about valve shims, which is how the valves are adjusted. Valves work their way into the head, over time, and this closes the clearance, when you hold the valve slightly open, the valve and seat get damaged.This is the time to fix the low compression cylinder, as it will only deteriorate more from this point. Likely a valve issue...And it appears that is what your mechanic is indication. NO MORE adjustment means that the valve has worked its way into the head too far. Valve job time. Sorry.
Noise from right side of
Hello and welcome to FixYa!
I suspect that it's the timing chain tensioner as well. It really makes noise when worn out. I strongly suggest that during the tensioner replacement, have the timing chain be replaced too. This will prevent future engine breakage.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!
I have a 2004 K1200GT
Yes, there is a 12 V accy. socket on your bike which can be used to charge the battery while it is still in the bike or for powering 12 V gadgets. If memory serves the socket is located on the LHS of the bike.
GPS consume very little power, so you could wire it directly to the battery with a small (3-5A) fuse in the line. Battery is located directly under the seat.
I noticed that the brake
You are correct...you bleed the system from a valve similar to what you find on a brake system, located at the slave cylinder on the bellhousing.However, just like your brakes, the system is not supposed to loose fluid, therefore you need to find the leak and correct it or you will be right back where you started in a couple of hours or days. check master, fluid line and slave for leaks. Good luck with it.
2004 BMW R1150RS 7,700 Sat for 2 yr with some starting. No spark, bought coils and new plugs. Bike has never been in rain or outside.New battery. turns ovr nice. Please respond if you know this bike
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...
Driving lights wiring diagram 2006 BMW R1200GS
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.
