How do you change the battery on a BMW r1150r motorcycle?
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.

try looking in the trunk for the battery that's where BMW puts then sometimes. look behind the side panels or under trunk floor
BMW's have auto-locks a little different from other cars, if your battery is dead, the doors won't open. To change the battery, you need to open the trunk, this is where the battery is located. You will see a panel with some screws, you need to remove that and underneath is the battery.
The battery is located in the trunk underneath the black plastic tray on the passenger side.. 1) Lift up the spare tire cover and carpeting. There's a clip to hold it in the up position.. 2) Loosen the two plastic screws and remove the plastic tray covering the battery.. 3) Disconnect the battery… leads. 10mm nuts.. 4) Remove the metal clamp on top of the battery by loosening the two nuts. 16mm. There's a screw in the middle of the clamp for adjusting the height to the top of the battery.. 5) Some batteries have a couple of folding plastic handles on the top to lift the battery out.. 6) There's a drain or vent tube with a plastic elbow on the (front) side of the battery. You can't really see it until you lift up the battery. Disconnect it and make sure you keep the plastic elbow for the new battery.. 7) Reverse the above procedure to install the new battery. (MORE)
Answer . The battery is located beneath the rear seat. Give the rear seat a good upward yank to release from the snap-in holders. The battery is on the passenger side.
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 itself during operation, likewise with the diamond shaped, 3 button EWS keys. if either of these fails then a new key may be requried, als…o 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) (MORE)
The correct answer is...you cant. It is a sealed key and has a lithium rechargeable battery. It recharges when the key is in the ignition. Therefore, you have to get a new key. To do that, you have to go through BMW (dealership), give them the VIN # and proof you are the owner. They send it to the n…earest factory and they make a new key for you. Average cost it 230 to 275.

Its on the track of the car on the right side wall under the gray carpet.. I mean TRUNK sorry :)
Many motorcycle batteries are on the side of the cycle directly under the seat. They're often covered by a removable plate that either snaps off or screws off. The battery is sometimes located directly under the seat itself, and the seat must be removed for access. Locations change by make and model… so check your owner's manual or poke around a bit if you can't find your battery. (MORE)
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 comp…letely 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. (MORE)
\n1) Unlock and remove the bike's seat \n2) Pull out the tool box (if your RT still has one)\nYou should be looking down at the battery at this point.\n3) Remove the side covers by un-tensioning the rubber bands that cross over or around the battery and set them aside\n4) Unscrew the knurled knobs o…f the battery hold-down frame and pull it away\nNow 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\n5) 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\n6) pull out the battery\n. \nTo 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 bit 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 p…ull 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. (MORE)
There is no battery in the key fob just take it to the dealer with all the keys u have from the x and they reset them togther...
Check relevant fuses for RADIO (there are about 4 of them) to ensure they are properly seated. This assumes Radio worked before batt change. Replace any bad fuse.
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 will 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 th…at 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. (MORE)
Some alarms systems have a protection function which will prevent starting the engine is somebody tried disconnect the battery and connect it again. Also what might happen is that your alarm system doesn't have memory in the case if you disconnect the battery. Thus, if you do disconnect the batte…ry it will reset the alarm system to the default factory settings. By default, the alarm system will block starting the engine. (MORE)
Good luck. Dealing with BMW is somewhat like dealing with organized crime. Their parts racket is a "tiered pricing schedule." This means you have to be a "made man" before you can actually make money on parts. They also want to "approve" your building. They love to reserve the right to say no, th…en say it loud and often.

The "chin" fairing is bolted to the frame. Remove it first. As I recall, the "chin" fairing was attached to a bracket at the bottom of the radiator housing. It was connected to a bayonet at the bottom rear of the fairing. It slid onto this, with a rubber grommet to hold it in place. Run the engine t…o warm the oil. You will need a set of metric Allen keys (should be included in the stock tool kit). Shut off the engine. Position the collecting pan under the drain. Loosen the oil plug. Drain the oil. Refit the oil drain plug (tighten to the specified torque). The oil filter is inside of the oil pan assembly. Remove the oil filter cover. Remove the old filter. Fit the new filter in place. Inspect the cover gasket. If necessary (or if one is provided with the filter) remove the old and replace with the new. Tighten the oil filter cover retaining bolts (to the specified torque). Fill to the specified oil quantity (found in the owner's handbook), using BMW factory oil, or synthetic equivallent. The filler cap is located on the rear right side of the engine cover. Run the engine to inspect for leaks. After the engine cools, refit the "chin" fairing. Godspeed. (MORE)
In the trunk, right (passenger) side, under the little black tray. Lift up the mat over the spare, remove the two fasteners (if they are even still there), and gently pull the tray up and out.
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 to 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.

BMW has a service for this, but they charge $90. At least they give you a "birth certificate" for that bike. Also, if you have the serial number of the engine, there are charts to look up the year but there's a bit of guesswork to it.
I was informed by a BMW dealer there isn't a battery to replace and you have to order a new remote and then have it programmed by the dealer.
Really no different than in other cars, except to be sure and get the right one with an external vent, since the battery is located in the trunk. You may have to use the old vent hose, but be sure you have it vented to the outside so you do not get battery vapors in the trunk which will corrode the …expensive stereo amp next to the battery (MORE)

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 rubber strap on the left side of the battery box and partially slide out the battery. Remove the (-) negative connector's 10mm n…ut 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. (MORE)
Yes, as long as you get the right battery so that it is an identical fit. Either get a BMW battery, or an Interstate MPT-H6. You will have to plug one of the vents on the interstate battery, and use the vent hose from your original BMW battery.

The battery is located on the right side of the vehicle in the trunk. To view it, remove the right side panel where the factory tools are kept. Simply turn the black knob and pop out the plastic insert. Once you have exposed the battery, you will need a screwdriver and socket wrench to remove the ar…m bar and the battery terminals. Remove the negative terminal first. If you have navigation, your best bet is to have a certified tech do it for you. The computer has to be reprogramed after installation. After serious consideration, I decided not to replace the battery myself. (MORE)
The battery is rechargeable and charges off the car whilst in use. It should never need replacing, and should stay charged for 6 months when fully charged. If it is no longer holding charge you must purchase a new key.
where is the battery situated on a 323i 1999 model BMW and hoe do i open the trunk if wont have power
The battery will recharge itself when placed in the ignition and the car is driven. I'm not sure how long it takes to completely recharge and I don't know if the battery is removable
Yes, You will have to enter the radio code,this should be in the back of the operator's manuel. If you do not have.You will most likely have to go to the dealership.
All E46 Models from 1999 through 2005 are basically the same. First off have the presence of mind to record your radio channels since some models of the radio will loose them all when you disconnect the battery. Now get some safety glasses and put them on. The battery is in the trunk on the passen…ger side under a panel that makes up the load floor. Some cars you can simply lift this panel up and out, but others, like my wagon requires you to remove the adjacent side panel (look for a rectangular button at the top of the side panel if this is the then push it and the panel will unlatch and move toward you). After the floor plate is removed you will see the battery. Using a 10 mm wrench remove the negative terminal clamp. Always disconnect the negative first and reconnect it last. It will help you avoid blowing up the battery. This is also a good reason to be wearing safety glasses. Then, using the 10 mm wrench remove the positive terminal. It has a large bulge and more than the one wire since it has an emergency disconnect that severs the electrical connection if an airbag goes off. The battery is clamped down by a large Philips screw. Unscrew it enough that it turns easily. Then you can remove the 10mm bolt that holds the battery and this clamp plate to the car. Some models have a large plastic floor support that interferes with this so you may have to use a small (8 or 9 mm) wrench to remove the two screws that hold this plastic piece in place. Once the bracket and the plastic are out of the way you can lift out the battery. I suggest using a battery carrier to get it out (the ones that simply slip over the terminals are cheap and work well). Careful though, this is a heavy battery to sustain all of the electric gizmos that these cars carry. Installation is the reverse of above. Be sure not to over tighten the plastic bits and always attach the positive before the negative. (MORE)

Go to Autozone and pick up a Bosch 3330 Oil Filter for six bucks. (MUCH cheaper than the BMW version) Other choices that will fit have 3/4" x 16tpi threads, ?? psi by-pass valve, and an anti-drain back valve. Recommended filters in blue. Available filters include: . Purolator PL10241 / PL25230 . … Mobil1 M1-102 . Bosch 3330 . Supertech ST3614 . AMSOil SMF 122 . EMGO 10-26740 . Fram PH6063 . Purolator ML16825 At "operating temperature", carefully put your "C" on a work stand, or any way to hold the bike straight upright. Next, place your drain pan under the front of the motor, and carefully remove the drain plug bolt. It is recommended that you change the gasket of the drain plug with every oil change. Let all the oil drain for about 7 minutes. Next, remove your oil filter, using a thin walled tool that looks like a large socket for unscrewing the oil filter. Turn the filter upside down over your drain pan, and let all the oil drain out. Lube the gasket around your new oil filter with some fresh oil, screw it in until the rubber gasket touches the seat, then turn 3/4 of a turn more for proper torque. Reinsert the Oil Drain Plug and fill engine with oil. Left side, on top of the cylinder, there is a black plastic oil filler cap - remove and fill with 3.96 quarts of 20/50 weight oil.

In most later Honda models the battery is located under thedriver's seat. The first step is to remove this. The seat isusually fastened with two bolts, often of the Allen type, one oneach side of the rear of the seat. Then the seat is pulled back abit and it is loose. In some bikes the CDI ignition …unit is on topof the battery, pull this aside so it does not hinder access to thebattery. Now you can remove the battery cables from theirterminals. Disconnect the negative (black) cable first and thendisconnect the positive (red) cable. Lift the old battery out andput the new battery in place. Be careful that the new battery turnsthe same way as the old battery, so the negative and positivecables will readily be connected to their respective terminals.Now, connect the positive cable and then the negative cable. Makesure the small bolts on the battery terminals are well fastened tothe cables. Put the seat again in place and tighten the nuts oneither side. Now you are ready to go. (MORE)
They started building engines for other companies in 1921. They built there first motorcycle in 1923.
They are generally better made and construted from superior and more durable materials than their Japanese equivalents. That said, most modern BMW motorcycles will typically include some components such as telescopic forks, brakes and shock absorbers/dampers manufactured by Japaners companies such a…s Showa and Tokico. BMW motorcycles are considered to be a premium brand, which is reflected in a high retail purchase price, in turn offset by a longer than normal useful life and higher than average resale value.

Sadly you carnt! The battery is hardwired into the key and you cannot force the plastic cover open without breaking it. The key is suppost to self recharge in the ignition barrel. I just ordered a new key to get round this problem... there maybe other options but i couldnt find them!
BMW manufactured its first motorcycle in 1923, the R32, which featured a twin cylinder, horizontally opposed engine (the so called "Boxer" engine). BMW Motorrad still uses the flat-twin boxer configuration, but now also manufactures motorcycles with a variety of engine configurations.
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.

small flat head screw driver pops off the back cover and there is a nickel size battery that needs to be replaced
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.
Motorcycles bearing the BMW name were first manufactured in 1923. Prior to the introduction of the BMW R23, BMW made engines for other motorcycle companies.
