Bike stalls when clutch is disengaged

If you mean it cuts out when in gear and you release the clutch to ride off, then I would check the sidestand switch.

On starting a mesage comes on the lcd screen

The instrument cluster on that bike was used on the G650 X Challenge and G650 X moto as well as the X Country.

You can change the calibration to accomodate the 21" front wheel used on the G650 X Challenge. This determines circumference of the wheel for calibration of the odometer and speedometer.

Dealer should have set it prior to delivery of the bike.

How often does the chain need lubricating

Touch your chain, feel it, does it feel super hot, does it feel sandy, does it make alot of noise, is it loose?
Riding conditions is the main factor for your chain.
Do you travel down alot of dirt roads? the worse the conditions the more frequent lubrication is required.
If your chain gets alot of dirt on it then you'll need to wash that off and then lubricate it.
A well maintained chain will also save on your sprokets.
I check mine once a week, sometimes its good and sometimes its dirty and needs washed and lubricated.
I use chain lube that doesn't fly off and get all over my bike. In a pinch any lube will due.

Can't start engine after storage

Regardless of whether your bike has carbs or is fuel injected you need to check for spark.Remove one of the spark plugs,hold it against the engine,with an insulated pair of pliers, and crank the engine over.If there is spark then squirt some fresh gas down both combustion chambers and see if it will fire up. If it has been more than four months since you ran the bike I hope you used a fuel stabilizer before the bike was put away.If not you will have to drain the old gas,check to make sure the injectors aren't plugged,(if the bike is so equipped) and flush the lines a bit.Spark is the key,if you have it then it's a fuel delivery problem.If you don't change the plugs out,check all your connections,including the grounds,and make sure the battery is 100%. Also check the breather box for uninvited guests such as mice .For some reason they just just love to make a home in mine ,its happened three times to me now .Spark, fuel, and air. These are the only things that can go wrong with a start problem .Good luck

How do I remove the

Without more information as to the year and model of BMW, I can't give you exact and helpful information.

Most of the rear pad retainer pins need to be driven out with a small pin punch and hammer. Some of the newer front pins unscrew with a hex or torx driver.
