From talking with other dealers, i'm the only one to have ever had a rod issue, i too find this hard to believe but it's far from every single g450x being a ticking bomb.

Hi, Bike Works perfect for ages now I can't start my bike, since I ride last Sunday and stop engine with gear on, try to check loose between chain and SPROCKET I push bike on gear forward and back (now I know that was stupid) after this I try start the bike but (WOW) something is wrong it;s take much long then before to start then when it's start the Idle is higher then before and engine is not running evenly.

Why It's that happened? Because I push bike forward and back? I damage something ??(You send about decompression)
What I Can do ?
Ps.
I charge the battery but it's still the same
I try push kill button button
I check the connectors.
I got new spark for replacement but I call BMW service and gay told that can't be spark... He want 160f for have look

HELP!!


bike have 45h (1543miles)done any last valve check has been done at 38h by BMW, next valve check is on 60h. All service done by BMW.
Before bike works perfect, no problem at all, start after 2 weeks with no problem( always all light off before start)

It must be something with that what I done I rang previous owner, Hi done 300m without any problems

I try push it the samy way what I done before but is going worse


The problem is I can start bike at all now, you hear shooting, feel the gasoline from the exhaust, battery charged yesterday; so I not able go to any service( I haven't got van)

Soaking oil filter?? or air??

OR BOTH??

I think he means soak the oil filter before installing it.

Sounds like you may have a dirty injector that's sticking open a bit. I found BMW injectors to be rather sensitive to ethanol fuel. The battery also might not have enough juice even though it's fully charged.

Ok gotcha,

Kinda like filling an auto filter to reduce dry firing I would guess.

Always SOP for me anyway :)


Thanks

Please help me anyone

but why suddenly blocked injector as I normally rode, stood at 1minute to check the clearance between the chain and gears by pushing the engine slightly forward and back, after not fired nothing terrible could happen

I just have bike 2 week and done 0.5h :( Bike works perfect, just done oil change and filters :( I can't start it :(

Oddometer
45h
~1500m

Check the kill button, there is a screw in the switch thousing to get acess to the contact. Clean this internal contact and try again.

I'd say new battery and don't touch the throttle when starting!

It's only been three weeks since I became the proud owner, but it's been tough staying off of it until it was ready.
Well, now it's ready!


rode it today, and I love it!


Time to get it dirty .......

^^^^^^ such a great looking bike...just take those pesky mirrors off and get it dirty! Which exhaust silencer is that?

On another note, this morning my kickstand broke for the 4th time. I refuse to replace it this time, as there are plenty of trees and other objects against which to lean it.
