Just developed stalling problem too
This sounds like a problem my bike has just come down with. Refuelled the tank after my last ride the day before, after I dropped the bike on gravel into a corned but no damage except for the RG Sliders again these saved the bike. Rode the bike home about 90 klm.
The next day rode about 100 klm stopped the engine several times and restarted OK then went back to the crash site to check it out (karma?) and the bike started long enough to get into 1st then stopped. Started reved to 3,000 then stopped, tried again and again the same problem, splutters a bit and dies.
If you try to start without turning the ignition off it doesn't seem to want to start. Turn the ignition off and it will start run for 5 secs and stop. Maybe something in the cold startup changes the fuelling?
The fuel pump can be hear running, no alarms on the dash, its like the motor primes and then cuts out from supplying fuel or the electronics cutout. My feeling is that it is more fuel related as from my understanding when electrics stop there is no spluttering.
Taking it to a independent mechanic today rain allowing to have him see what fault codes are there. He come highly recommended for working on BMW but I am unsure of his experience with a K12R he says he has the test equipment.
Any thoughts from anyone is he worth a shot or should I go back to the BMW hacks who have already broken parts on the bike.
