What would you like to do?
The procedure is described in some detail in the small Service and Technical booklet (companion to Owners's Manual) which you should have with your bike. It is quite tedious but not beyond your average biker with basic tools. The advice to check the electrolyte level every 3 months is all very well but its difficult to see and needs almost the full procedure to top up anyway.

Answer This is entirely dependand on the key, the new keys that operate the car from entering into a slot with no blade has an internal battery that charges itsel…f during operation, likewise with the diamond shaped, 3 button EWS keys. if either of these fails then a new key may be requried, also a simple initialisation process can be done at your local dealer to try and recode the radio waves with the car as this can sometimes be lost. this should take a matter of minutes and should not be charged (dependand on the car) other types of keys may have a small rectangular cover on the back which can be popped off revealing 2 screws, these batteries need to be changed within 30 seconds otherwise the key loses its pairing with the vehicle. illuminated keys come apart by sliding the light and batter out from the top, or may also be removed from the rear depending on the key. I hope this helps, Adamski (email@example.com)
It is located under the fuel tank. You must remove the seat and the side skins and then you will gain access to the fuel tank rear bolts. After removing them you must be very …careful in lifting the tank. Having someone there to look under the tank while you lift is benificial. The tank will not completely come off but if you are lucky enough it will pivot to the rear and you will have enough slack in the fuel lines to significantly raise the tank to gain access to the battery. Good luck! Make sure to disconnect the fuel line quick connects before moving the gas tank. I didn't do this the first time I accessed the battery and broke one of my fuel line quick connects. Other than that, all of the above info is exactly correct.
1) Unlock and remove the bike's seat 2) Pull out the tool box (if your RT still has one) You should be looking down at the battery at this point. 3…) Remove the side covers by un-tensioning the rubber bands that cross over or around the battery and set them aside 4) Unscrew the knurled knobs of the battery hold-down frame and pull it away Now you've removed (most of) the things in the way. It's still a tight fit and your bike may have a wire bundle running over the left side of the battery that will make things difficult 5) Unscrew the pos and neg leads on the top of the battery and bundle them so you don't forget which wires go with which lead 6) pull out the battery To put a new battery in, reverse all the above.
First, you have to remove the seat. The gas tank has to come off next. It is a little tricky. There is a bolt down on the left side which needs to come out. There is a b…it of a trick to removing the two gas lines. They have a quick disconnect coupler on them. It needs to be pushed in and the lines pull apart. Then just lift the tank off. You might want to install a battery tender or something similar while you have it apart. It's that damn clock that drains the battery.
Not a problem...Well, sort of... First remove the left mirror(just pull out on it. then remove the two wires on it that power the signal. remove both seats. An Allen wrnch wil…l pull off the 10 to 12 screws on your left side farings, you will also have to take the cover off of your pull out handle that helps you get it on the centerstand. That comes off easily by turning the two screws at the top of it 45 degrees(or until you feel it loosen). now, go to the airbox right under the drivers seat, and remove the two Phillips head screws on the top of it. then you see the plastic pipe that runs to it from the left side of the engine, at the front of it there is an Allen screw (silver) that holds it in place. Remove it. now you need to lift the top cover of the airbox off, and where the pipe connects to it, lift it out of the slot and remove. Nows the tricky part. the battery is tucked in the pretty tight , so wiggle it out of the left side of your bike. It will come out, just pull. Now you will have the battery hanging off the left side of the bike- that's as far as she goes-just unhook the terminals.
1. Determine if the battery needs replacement or just a charge. Turn the motorcycle on to run, remove the seat, and check with a voltmeter if the voltage at the battery goes t…o 14 volts. 14 volts because it is a 14 volt charging system; a little below 14 is ok. Record value and shut off the bike. 2. Wait about 10 to 20 minutes and check the battery voltage again. it should not be below 12 volts, if so, change the battery. 3. Remove the black (-) wire first and then the red (+). There will be some sparks but not to serious. 4. pull the battery out and place a new, CHARGED, battery back in and reverse the above proceedure.
Replacing only: To remove the battery on this bike, you remove the left side fairing panel _only_ and the rider's seat. You do not have the lift the gas tank. Remove the rub…ber strap on the left side of the battery box and partially slide out the battery. Remove the (-) negative connector's 10mm nut and bolt. Slide it out a bit further, tilt it upwards slightly and remove the (+) positive connector's 10mm nut and bolt. This part is a bit tricky as you hold the battery with one hand while disconnecting with the other but totally possible. I have done it several times. Replace with new battery the same way in reverse. While you have the battery out or if you are replacing it, purchase of the battery terminal extender that is available from BMW. This allows easy access to the (+) positive terminal for booster cables or charging. Charging only: Also note that you can charge through the bottom accessory plug, as long as you're using a charger of < 2 amps. Direct battery access is not necessary for charging thanks to this handy two pin accessory plug found cable tied to the frame just under the left side cover. It is also possible to charge this bike's battery with the cigarette lighter/accessory plug outlet on the fairing.
Engine Oil and Filter Change Tools Parts oil filter tool oil - 4 qts. hex bit socket - 8mm oil filter ratchet crush washer - drain plug torque wrench rubber gloves funnel oil …drain pan rag 1. Remove the sump plates (skid/bash plates) - see page 18 for instructions. 2. Be sure the engine is hot (go for a short ride). 3. Place the oil drain pan under drain plug (bottom right side of engine). 4. Wear rubber gloves - oil is carcinogenic, plus when you accidentally touch the hot headers!!! or get hot oil!!! on your hands it won't hurt as much. 5. Remove the oil drain plug located to the right of the oil filter, 8mm hex bit socket. 6. Remove the oil filter, oil filter tool and ratchet. 7. Remove the oil filler cap to help draining. 8. Let drain for ~10 min. 9. Use the rag to remove any dirt from around the drain plug area and from the oil filter well. 10. Install the drain plug with a new crush washer and torque to 23 ft.lb. (32 Nm). 11. Fill the new oil filter with fresh oil. 12. Apply a thin coat of oil to the new oil filter rubber gasket. 13. Install the new oil filter and give it ¾ - 1 turn after first contact. 14. Add 3.75 - 3.9 qts. of oil total (NOT 4 qts.!!!) using a funnel or oil spout. 15. Install the oil filler cap. 16. Run engine at idle for 2 - 3 min. 17. Wait ~10 min. and check to be sure the oil level is at the dot in the center of the sight glass. 18. Check for any oil leaks at filter and drain plug. Note: You may get more consistent oil level readings if you put the bike on the sidestand for a few minutes and then put it on the centerstand.
where is the battery situated on a 323i 1999 model BMW and hoe do i open the trunk if wont have power
When you see any sign the old battery is dying.
There is no R1150s. There is R1150R, RS, RT, GS.
use ignition key in helmet lock on right side of seat turn and seat will unlock. lift main seat up then you can remove the back section.
Check your small user manual for replacing the battery. The gas tank has to be removed to do this.
The Battery is underneath the spare tire in the back just open the rear hatch you will need some tools to get to it but it is right underneath the spare. Disconnect the wires …and put the new battery in and positive with positve and negative with negative it shouldn't take you more than ten minutes
Remove the fuel tank, and it's right there.
You take it to a dealer. The computer on the X5 needs to be told a new battery has been installed. Essentially the new battery needs registered to the vehicle.
First you have to locate the battery on the motorcycle. Mine is under the seat so I have to take the seat off to get to it. Use a screwdriver to loosen the terminal bolts …and remove the wires. Pull the battery out of the battery casing and replace it with the new battery. Be sure to connect the negative and positive wires to the correct terminals. Replace the seat or battery cover and you are all set to ride. I am a girl and have been taking care of my own bike for 15 years. See you on the road.
