bmw r80 gs: engine problems
i seem to have a technical problem with my bike bmw r80 gs. i'm not really a mechanic so i'm looking for advice to my problem:
the engine keeps cutting out, just like that, during the ride.
after the engine stops, i can't start it for 2-5 minutes. after that it runs smoothly again for a while and stops again.
i had the carburators cleaned, and it seemed to work.
the problem, however, is that prior to stopping, the engine runs well on both cylingers and then stops from one second to the other. with a carburator problem i would expect one cylinder to run fine, while the other might stop. it just doesen't make sense to me that both carourators would stop at exactly the same time.
i would suspect that there might be a problem with the wiring, some loose contact.
any answer or hint would be greatly appreciated!
