Re: Ignition stick coils

I've fished a pair of used coils from ebay for cheap last fall. No luck for the new ones.

Re: Anyone removed the O2 sensor?

One interesting thing is I'm just back from a trip to NC and back to CA with the new 1200 injectors installed and the mileage dropped a bit so the 1200 injectors (maybe?) are running a bit richer across the board and (maybe?) the throttle response is crisper, (subjective). but I will leave them ins...

Re: 02 R1150R - Throttle Sync

I’m with Kirby here, it is not a rocket science to reset TPS, TB stops and synch all of it if your comfort levels allows it. If not - take it to the mechanic, you do not need any help from intranets to make that decision. On side note- that procedure works, I recently tested it on my bike and cured ...

Re: 02 R1150R - Throttle Sync

- Check spark plugs and ignition coils, - Make sure your throttle bodies do no sip air (all seals are tight) and have good, not worn axes - Check the presence of blue paint on throttle body stop screws on both sides and TPS sensor bolts, if paint is missing somewhere - you should consider doing STEP...

Re: Advice please! On 2004 R1150R

It is a heavy bike for getting into motorcycles. I would start from something lighter and less powerful and I probably should stop my post there. Price wise: it depends where you are. Used marked in US is under tremendous stress of cheap and new motorcycles. $4.4k can buy you a lot of a bike these d...

Re: Starting problem

I would start from making sure the bike is in neutral gear (or off the side stand with clutch engaged) - you should hear the fuel pump working for a second after ignition is turned on, then check all the fuses, then VERY IMPORTANT: connect healthy battery (or sufficient jumper) , then move under the...

Re: Improving 2004 R1150R: AF-XIED vs ReCyclizer, +1200 injectors

Update: it appears that my TPS sensor was misaligned resulting in on-off throttle and surging on low speed. All of it was cured by proper TPS setup and bike runs much better now!

Re: Bike Value and Upgrades

City system cases are a bit different and have reduced luggage capacity, lids are flat in comparing with regular system cases. I'm not sure why you cannot find these on the bmw parts site, probably it was replaced by never version, or no longer available. Try contacting any dealer with my part numb...

Re: Bike Value and Upgrades

Bags will fit, I posted my part numbers on that forum for your reference, I think you can get them for $200 shipped leaving that big left one with the seller and gs racks and saving him some shipping $. $100 per bag is a good deal, I do not think you can find them cheaper considering the cost of shi...

Re: Improving 2004 R1150R: AF-XIED vs ReCyclizer, +1200 injectors

Yes I'm a bit sensitive after riding silky smooth Suzuki parallel twin in the past, but I'm not convinced to spend any money yet on my double spark from all feedback I received here. Concentrating on the tuning at the time being.

go fishing to craigslist for bags, I've seen a set of nice ones for less than $200 one day. It is possible.

Re: Improving 2004 R1150R: AF-XIED vs ReCyclizer, +1200 injectors

It would be really useful to hear any relevant stories from double spark owners. Double spark was invented by BMW for fixing engine design flaws including surging, which my bike is prone to on low speeds (1st / 2nd gears). I'm wondering if it is common with double sparks and upgrades are required fo...

Re: R1150SR Project Touring Bike

It looks like you have a bond with oilheads. Deploying ABS to a non ABS bike and making suspension comfy for your passenger when improving handling is not an easy task (if it is even possible) and could be pricey (unless you have a pile of parts lying around). Good luck with it, and please keep us u...
