thought it was the fuel pump, but no...
Just got back from a trek to Bob's BMW in Maryland. Had SS braided brake cables and bar-backs installed on my 1994 R1100RS--drove back and forth from east end of Long Island (about 600 miles)--when within 1/4 mile of my home, bike just stopped and would not restart--battery good, fuses good--cranks well but doesn't turn over--when turning switch on, I don't hear that familiar whirring sound of fuel pump bringing fuel line up to pressure--I'm assuming this is a fuel pump problem--bike has 40,000 miles--any other suggestions before I call Beemer Boneyard and others for a replacement? Thanks in advance for your input.
PS--Bob's is very good--worth the trip--traffic in that area is unbelieveable![/QUOTE]
My 02 r1150r quit on the road, suspected fuel pump as bike didn't sound right on cranking. Read all the posts concerning pump, ordered pump from beemer bone yard. With the tank off tested pump with jumper wires, oh oh, pump sounded fine. Phoned closest dealer for service appointment , three week wait time. Went back to posts looking for clues. Tried reversing pump connections maybe flush something out. Disconnected and reconnected motronic unit, put everything back together for trailer trip. Gave it a crank, why not. It fired up, test ride, so far so good. Now have a spare pump, but won't cancel dealer appointment just yet. Thanks to all for tips on Forum, hope this helps someone else.
