Most likely cause is the fuel pump regulator that has blown. This will need to be replaced.

Three things to check. Are you getting a spark at the plugs, Are you getting gas, are you getting air?

I have a gs 1200 the moter turning and the ligts on the screen are on but it wont start what can be the problem

Might be a fuel delivery problem like the fuel pump.POP the spark plugs out and squirt some fuel into the combustion chamber ,replace the plugs and crank the bike over. If it barks you know its a fuel problem.If not pop out one spark plug ,ground it,and yourself and have someone hit the start button.If you don't get a spark then you know its an ignition problem.Its a process of elimination to get to the problem.good luck


There is a light out on the front of your bike, could be a parking light, turn signal or headlight bulb. Turn on ignition and check the lamps on the bike, then start the engine and check the headlights.

Do you have the owners manual for the R1200GS? The warning indicators are described in the manual.

My bike 2007 R 1200Gs suddenly died on highway. I have new battery on the bike ang gas tank was full. Any idea ? Thank you

The most likely cause is the fuel pump controller. It is positioned under the cover just left of your instrument cluster, on top of the fuel tank. These units are not repairable and it will need to be replaced. this is what it looks like.

My 2008 BMW 1200 GS will not start. It cranks over fine but will not start. Yesterday when I left work it started fine but after 1min it died. I restarted it and it died again. Finally got it started and...

Most likely your fuel pump regulator that is malfunctioning.

It is located under the LHS top panel, more or less in line with the instrument cluster.

Clutch problem

check the level of the clutch fluid in your resevoir, maybe a slow leak that is allowing the chutch to release. When was the last time the fluid was changed?
