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.

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

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

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

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.

fuse box location
Please, refer to the above link which implies it is under the fuel tank.

You have not provided much information to go on so it is very hard to give you any help with this. For example, what do you mean by cut out. Do you mean the engine stops or the starter motor stops. Any where have you got the feedback from. Is it a diagnostic from the computer, or just a well meaning friend who is guessing. Questions like this are very hard to answer without a lot of information so you need to try and give as much as possible. If it is a fuse that is tripping, then this will be due to an overload on the circuit and you will need to get someone with the skills to diagnose it, such as a BMW repairer.
