Re: 1985 BMW K100rs Won’t turn over
If your '85 is like mine, the pump doesn't start until you push the start button and should be heard running a second or two after releasing the start button. Check the fuse if you don't hear it.
Always check the 4 pin under the tank and that the jetronic plug are fully seated and locked. The ignition switch can also give problems and need a cleaning. A starter backspin couldn't hurt either.
