Hi, Wim could be a loose valve seat or valve clearance issue keep all documentation about this tick so when your bike is out of warranty and the noise becomes a real problem they won't have a leg to stand on for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue.

There is a seat lock on the LHS side of the bike just below where the front and rear seats meet.

Turn the key clockwise and remove the rear seat. Now turn the key anti clockwise and remove the front seat. If it doesn't release, just put a bit of pressure on the rear of the seat (or bang it with your fist) while turning the key.

Never.

Replacing the timing chains involve splitting the crankcase, and would only be done when the entire motor gets a rebuild.

Your ring antenna for the immobiliser is faulty or you are using the wrong key.

Your starter bendix possibly needs cleaning. Unfortunately these are sealed units and can only be dismantled and re-assembled with specialized equipment. They can be purchased loose.

Have a look here: Starting

This is the part you are looking for:

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

Looks like that the clutch needs adjustment or may need a replacement. This issues really occur when the clutch is worn out. I suggest that you have it replaced to resolve the problem.

Could it be "ABS"?
Does it stay on after start? Does the bike run normally?

BMW Motorcycles | Answered on Jan 27, 2019


it will take you forever to tune the bike using open pipes. dont you think the bmw engineers know what they are doing. also open pipes make drivers want to run over you.

Disconnect and remove the battery to charge it. I am guessing the rectifier unit in the bike circuit is causing the problem.
