    Need help troubleshooting

    So I thought I sold my r1150r a couple months ago....the guy who bought it rode it away and it died on him. He got it started, went another couple miles, and it died again. He had it towed somewhere...

    Is there a diagram somewhere on line where I can actually see what the Hall sensor is and where it is? I read that it is often only the wiring, not the sensor itself - true? How much for a new...

    Charcoal canister was not on the bike when I bought it, so that's not it.

    Doing some online research - could it be the Hall Sensor? Seems to have the symptoms of a Hall Sensor or associated wiring failure.
  6. R1150R dies - starts after cooling down, then dies again

    So I just sold my r1150r because we're moving and I needed some cash. The nice folks who bought it said they didn't even get a 100 miles away and it died on them. They let it cool down, then it...

    The bike is completely back together. I made a temporary (yet solid) kill switch bypass that will get me through until I find a decent priced switch unit. I have a buddy who has a buddy who thinks he...

    So on a hunch, I found some thinner gauge wire instead of a paperclip because I wasn't sure I was making contact. Low and behold - THE FUEL PUMP FIRED UP AND THE STARTER BUTTON WORKED!!!!!!! I...

    Can't make out the picture even after downloading. I need to go back out and take the tank off again, but if you think the connector is under there, I'll give it a shot.

    I'm not sure what switch you are referring to. Are you talking the switch you have to access underneath the clutch lever housing - the one that clicks when the clutch lever is pulled in? If so, I...

    I'm wondering, was it the exact same problem? Did you turn on the ignition and hit the starter button and no fuel pump whir AND no starter clicking?
