Re: R1100RT.1996 Oil light not illuminating.

Thanks for the update! Glad you got it sorted. Nice new light on the dash at Ignition On now! :smile: A loose Air Box lid may have slightly affected the Air Temp signal being sent to the Motronic ECU from the Air Inlet Temp (AIT) sensor on the lid. The Air Inlet pressure into the Air Box from the In...

Re: Electronic upgrade ignition

Hi Jon, Look for that burnt wire/s first and it will give tell you what circuit has shorted out. If you make a test Indicator bulb (12v 21W) with a two wire leads soldered/connected to it, then you can temporarily fit this in series (between) with the Battery Positive lead and the Battery + terminal...

Re: I killed the engine :bawling:

......….Does anyone think this knock may be piston slap? I don't think it is piston slap - the noise is too low frequency and deep for that, piston slap is more of a rattle. It sounds more like the noise a Camshaft would make if it was being axially shuttled backwards and forwards as 'bob' has post...

Hi Dave, MOTRONIC RELAY TEST - Part 1 We will start with the basics and check that the Motronic Relay is operating - first by listening/feeling the relay to see if its coil is being operated.

Re: Recommissioning 2004 RT1150

Thanks for the update Chris. That 'erratic' TPS voltage is odd. Now that you have found a crack in the TB housing I am wondering if air could also be getting into the TB venturi via the crack. This doesn't explain the erratic TPS unless the corrosion found was causing the TB Butterfly shaft to hang ...

Re: bmw r1100r surging (still)1997 @23000mls

Jaythro,

From the R1100RT diagram, the Black/Green wire (pin 4) appears to be an earth coming from the Motronic ECU.

It is likely the same as frame earth but as we are looking at millivolts here it is probably better to measure using the pins 1 & 4 which is what the ECU is looking at.

Put a large screwdriver to your ear and probe over the engine casings to see if you can locate any knocking sounds.

Re: Recommissioning 2004 RT1150

Hi Chris, ASSUMING that the LH Stop Screw has been tampered with, it may be that the previous owner/mechanic had problems setting the BBS due to the BBS port on the engine side of the Butterfly being blocked and altered the Stop Screw to compensate. You are correct that a mal-adjusted LH Stop Screw ...

Re: bmw r1100r surging (still)1997 @23000mls

Well, I got the cable distributor out (surprisingly clean and dry). Its a fool of a thing IMHO. Secured cordage to cables to aid refitting. Right hand throttle cable had started to strand. Wheel in distributor box had no circlip fitted and no mark on the wheel where one had worn against it. Just th...

Re: Recommissioning 2004 RT1150

Hi Chris, Looking back at your earlier posts concerning the cleaning of the BBS, you had a blocked BBS port on the engine side of the LH TB Butterfly. This caused the Carb Cleaner to only be sprayed from the BBS port on the Air Filter side of the TB Butterfly and to pool there. However, ONLY when yo...

IIRC, you fitted a new style Oil Pump Cover but reused the Philips Head screws from the original cover instead of the new Hex Head screws?
