    Here's the part number for the stick coils I just put on my '04 RT: 12137680644. They did look slightly different then the ones that were in there. Mostly just the color of part of the plastic.
  2. Just to follow up on my original post, I replaced...

    Just to follow up on my original post, I replaced both stick coils and now the bike runs great. The dealer, Foothills BMW in Denver, couldn't figure this one out. I initially brought the bike to...

    +1. I also just replaced both my stick coils and now the my '04 RT with 40K runs great. Seems that this problem is fairly common.
  4. How did you know which coil to replace? Did you...

    How did you know which coil to replace? Did you just try one side and if that did not fix it then move the new one to the other side?

    On the advice of someone else, I siphoned the gas completely...

    Thanks for your reply. Yes, it will start right back up no problem. It only stalls when at a complete standstill for a short period of time, like at a stoplight.
  6. Need some help with a stalling engine

    Bike is a 2004 R1150RT with 40,000 miles. Seems to run fine at speed, but at idle it will run fine then suddenly quit. Valves were adjusted and throttle bodies synchronized by dealer. This seemed to...

    On the 1150 you had to take off the entire side fairing which involved about 15 screws. Then you had to jiggle and manuever the whole big thing until it came free. From the pictures, it looks like...
  8. Question on ease of servicing an R1200RT

    I currently own an R1150RT but I am shopping for a new bike. I have been looking at for a GS, but a R12RT has caught my eye. My question is this: how easy is it to remove the plastic to allow for...

    Regarding the brakes, I do use the hand brake much more than the foot brake, but I thought either one works both the front and rear brake simultaniously.

    I usually run 42 in the rear and 40 up front. I kinda doubt there is any problem as the bike handles wonderfully. I'm not much of a hard accelerator, and most of the roads by me are twisty mountain...
  12. Front tire wears faster than rear on R1150RT

    I just replaced my front tire on my R1150RT. It had about 6 - 7000 miles on it. The tread was worn low mostly on the sides with a little bit of cupping on one side. The rear tire still looks good....

    I find the Throttlemeister very awkward to use. I hardly mess with it. It's best used for very long flat interstate runs. Not much good for anything else. I once accidently activated it becuase...

    I personally wouldn't worry about the screw lengths. I've long since shuffled mine around any old way and nothing bad has happened yet.:doh

    Huh? Are you serious? The differences are likely to be pretty insignificant.



    How do you figure?

    To the original poster, don't be in too much of a hurry for this bike. If it works out...

    I'm not sure you can make a direct comparison like that. One explanation for the lower fatalities per 1000 in Canada is that our friends to the north have a shorter riding season, thus less exposure...
