I sent a PM to Turkeycreek about the stranded 1150

If their party can be reached, I can pass on Moto Hank's number and he can listen to their tale and offer ideas.

If you can point me in their direction I'll try to help them diagnose the problem.

If this turns out to be true, MikeMike's on-the-road splice trick could get him going again.
Tom has his Mexico cell phone with him, I've been in touch with his wife on their US phone.

What's the best way for you to talk with him? I can get his Mexico # if that works for you. Otherwise it will be a chinese telephone.

Send this link but especially this phone number to them via whatever way, Hank will listen to their tale and offer a suggestion.

The new evil part suspect: Hall Effects Sensor/Ignition Trigger

Let's hope it's something more simple than that

Any of the casual readers want more information on the Hall Sensor, here it is:

LINK

This malady stranded Hank on his trip to Ushuaia, but he had a spare and, hey, he's a BMW mechanic, so he did the fix on the side of the road.

Like the aforementioned fuel pump controller, which does not exist on the topic bike, it's good to know how to do some work arounds so you can get back on the road.

MikeMike's roadside splice fix in Veracruz for his broken FPC is a classic example.

I passed this along to Mrs. TurkeyCreek, hopefully they'll have a resolution.

They've decided to cut bait.

They're ditching the Baja plans for now and are having a truck come down to pick up the busted bike.

Thanks for the help!

Thanks for the PDF link, Trice. It's now part of my GS stash.

I'm leaving Vancouver in about 10 minutes I proactively changed my Hall Sensor last month. I have a working spare and will be in San Felipe on Sunday, Bahia de Los Anglees on Monday. Don't know if that's any help but I'll throw the spare in the car and wait to hear whats happening.

Note. Its relatively simple to change the hall sensor.

Update: just saw Bisbonian's post

These two statements alone will help someone down the road. I carry a spare ring antenna and a spare fuel pump controller (a move made somewhat redundant now that I'm getting the Burns Cable), but not a hall sensor.

My bike is still at Hank's. I will call him in the am and see if he'll proactively change mine out also, so I can carry the still good one as the spare.

I'm inclined to go down there to Dilley, and watch how he does it. That'll be worth 100 YouTube videos. If they existed.

Could be the hall sensor, but they have a classic tendency to go bad when wet, then heal themselves when they dry out (but they're still bad). Oftentimes the sensors are still good, but the wiring insulation 'cooks' due to engine heat and falls off, shorting out. A get home or get to the shop fix involves insulating individual wires with electrical tape or even duct tap, if no good part is readily available.

Might also want to check if the rider knows how long since the last fuel filter change- or if they bought gas from a drum. Fuel filter / pump can also be an issue on the older 1100 / 1150 bikes. A bad fill of fuel can ruin your day. When the ignition turns on, you should be able to hear the fuel pump prime up.

A good decision was made by not going to Baja, I believe. Its a long push to Tijuana.
