Re: No start in cold

I put the fast throttle (choke) on and hit the start button. It turns over but sluggishly. It's quite warm here today and started ok. But, there's a slight hesitation at first. Just doesn't seem strong. When it has been colder, upper 30's, it turns over but much slower and won't actually start. Ton...

Re: 1200 injector upgrade fo the rockster

I applaud you for not making subjective recommendations. There are so many engine performance mods for our bikes that do nothing. Since I have the time, equipment and background, I try to make tests and measurements to figure out what works and what doesn’t. As far as I can see, the main benefits of...

Re: 1200 injector upgrade fo the rockster

Mike, Thanks for pointing out the typo, which I fixed. It is a 2001 R1150GS. Is there a link to your report? Wait, I see you’re referring to this thread. Rockster, R1150R, R1150GS ... the engines and Motronic all work the same. In your report you said you “weren’t recommending, just say’n” so I adde...

Re: 1200 injector upgrade fo the rockster

I’ve just installed them and written a comprehensive report for anyone interested, here: https://advrider.com/index.php?threads/ ... t-35805911

They definitely can smooth out your engine but don’t expect any added performance.

Re: Anyone removed the O2 sensor?

The only way to know for sure what a given coding plug will do in a given R1150 is to read the configuration with a GS-911. Anything else is merely guesswork. Here is a link for several that have been measured: http://advrider.com/index.php?threads/coding-plugs-r1100-r1150-decoded.765242/#post-26886...

The in-tank hoses are even more of a problem. When they leak, it's no-go. Happened to me a 70mph on the highway.

Re: 1150r very red muffler !

That glowing thing is the catalytic converter. It was glowing red because a LOT of unburned fuel made it to that point. Most likely your engine is misfiring (the coughing you mentioned). You need some help determining why the engine was running rough.

Re: Doing a spline lube for the first time.........advice welcome

Wayne, Here's some food for thought. Remove the starter, zip tie the clutch lever pulled in and check to see how much the the clutch plate will move before the input shaft moves. If you have none or minimal (say, 1/16"), don't bother with the lube, there's no relative motion to lube. If you hav...

Re: new battery dead in a month

Keith. That 10.5 mA draw is way too high. Total draw should be under 3mA and less on your bike since you don't have an RID. You'll have to get rid of that monitor. What type of battery do you have?

Re: 1150 Fuel Delivery issue

When you get the symptoms, open the gas cap immediately and see if there is a partial vacuum. You may have a blocked vent line even if the canister is gone.

When you rebuilt the throttle bodies did you change the throttle stops screws? They are VERY sensitive.

Re: IF the battery's low, are you ok once the bike starts up

The draws with the key off are: Motronic/Fuse 5: 0.8 mA RID/Fuse 3: 1.5 mA ABS: 0.3 mA Total: 2.6 mA Note that the clock is about half the draw and the combination of ABS and Motronic are the other half. Add another 4.8 mA to the key-off draw if you have a Kisanuki Signal Minder, which btw drains th...

Re: Battery (/electrical) Diagnosis

Your problem sounds to me, more likely to be your starter. The internal magnets often come loose as do the internal planetary gear covers. When either of those things happen, your symptoms appear. The starter isn't hard to repair and parts are available at euromotoelectric. The battery after sitting...
