    2002 R1150RT Wiring Diagram

    Looking for a source for a complete wiring diagram for the R1150RT, can't seem to locate a complete set. Anyone have a source?

    Check a Clymer Manual. It has several electrical diagrams for this model.

    I created my own schematic in ladder logic format, which I find easier for troubleshooting. It is posted here:
    http://www.mac-pac.org/tech/r1150rt-...ical-diagrams/

    I used the Haynes diagrams as source, which were quite good. The Clymer diagrams omitted switch and relay internals, which made it hard for me to follow the logic.

    Thanks for the simplified schematic. I get cross-eyed using the official one.

    That is absolutely excellent!

    Next time you are snowed-in for a week or so you could go back and note the wiring colors. Then sell a lot of them.

    What software did you use to create the diagrams?

    Thank you Paul!
    As a matter of fact, being snowed in gave me the chance to finally finish this diagram and get it out there.

    I did this drawing on my iPad, using OmniGraffle software. I was pushing the limit of this app, and had to make my own template of icons, and reported a few bugs, but overall it is a wonderful program. One point of the exercise was to get practical experience with iPad.

    Note that I put in a few important wire colors (HES signals). But it looked like too much work to get the color-and-stripe info correct on all wires. A future possibility, but it may require a more sophisticated graphics app. At least Clymer and Haynes already show the colors well.

    BTW, I have always found the official BMW drawings (Stromlaufplaene) to be effectively useless, because by the time you have traced a circuit you forgot where you started.

    I may try to publish ladder logic schematics for other BMW bikes, the ones owned by my friends in the MacPac club here near Phila. Some friends hinted I might sell them eventually, so don't tell anyone they're here for free!

    Problems: certain switch internals (hi beam, heated grip) I have guessed at or deliberately simplified. After many hours of study I could not grasp the true 'pole and throw' configuration, usually shown by cryptic tiny dashed lines. I would be grateful for any correction feedback, via private email.

    Updated schematic ffor R1150RT

    I noticed some omissions from my ladder logic electrical schematic for R1150RT, so I've revised it and posted Version 2 in the same place:

    Did you mean "Dear Doug" ?

    Doug, these are awesome diagrams and much easier to read than any I've seen in manuals. Great job.

    I wish something like this was available for the R1100RT!

    Dear MJM,
    I am working on the R1100RT diagram now.
    Similar, but differs in sidestand switch and ABS.

    Thanks.

    That's great Doug. Can't wait!
    Very nice format especially for us aging electronic techs whose arms seem too short to read stuff anymore.

    After years of tracking wiring diagrams as a GM tech and getting cross-eyed,this diagram you designed is 1st rate.Thanks for the time spent.We aught to have a ping count whenever someone uses your wiring diagram,but I do not think there's enough room on this sight.Thanks Again

    I just finished the R1100RT version for these ladder logic electrical diagrams, now posted here:
    http://www.mac-pac.org/wp-content/up...ec_Diagram.pdf

    I will appreciate any feedback.
    I will issue corrected versions for R1150RT and R1100RT as I discover needed corrections. The current version should always be at the same link.

    Initial comments:
    1. The headlight wiring, especially wire #58, has been confusing to me. I believe that USA models get their headlight power from the #15e wire, at the output of the Load Relief Relay, not from #58 which is probably used in UK
    2. I have guessed, from Haynes diagrams, that there are two identically wired Optional Equipment connectors, one for radio and one for powered windshield. And I believe these connectors were on R1100RT but discontinued on R1150RT.
    3. Similarly I have guessed that R1100RT has separate switches for Neutral and Gear Position, while R1150RT seems to combine these into one switch.

    Disclaimer: these drawings of mine obviously have no official sanction. I have an R1150RT but no access to a real R1100RT.

    WOW! Hey this is great Doug. I'll be carrying a set on my bike wherever I go!

    Soooooo much easier to read and understand than the factory ones.

    Thanks very much for this!
