There is a seat lock on the LHS side of the bike just below where the front and rear seats meet.

Turn the key clockwise and remove the rear seat. Now turn the key anti clockwise and remove the front seat. If it doesn't release, just put a bit of pressure on the rear of the seat (or bang it with your fist) while turning the key.

Never.

Replacing the timing chains involve splitting the crankcase, and would only be done when the entire motor gets a rebuild.

Your ring antenna for the immobiliser is faulty or you are using the wrong key.

Your starter bendix possibly needs cleaning. Unfortunately these are sealed units and can only be dismantled and re-assembled with specialized equipment. They can be purchased loose.

Have a look here: Starting

This is the part you are looking for:

Looks like that the clutch needs adjustment or may need a replacement. This issues really occur when the clutch is worn out. I suggest that you have it replaced to resolve the problem.

Hi, Steven and the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty wheel sensor.
2. Computer failure.
3. Faulty ABS pump.
4. Parking brake on (three-wheeler).
5. Low Hydraulic pressure due to system leak.
6. Faulty brake light switch.
7. Worn out brake callipers or pads.

Hi, Anonymous you need to repost your question under the BMW Cars category, not Motorcycles. Thanks, Gregg

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.
