Here we go, none OEM info. On my bike(right or wrong) at idle, the timing light shows three teeth in advance of the OT mark. At full advance, it is 12 teeth ahead of the OT mark. Full advance happens at 4,000+ RPMs.

You have carbs?

With fuel injection and the ignition on, you can hand turn the engine and the fuel pump will cycle as the OT mark comes center in the inspection hole.

Good luck-

RBMann: thanks for taking time to check out this information and really testing it on your bike.
It is a injection engine, no carbs.

TrikeFlyer,
Man did I miss the mark on this thread, thought you were pulling a grand joke, my apologies to you.

I've pmed a couple of guys I know in Canada, who know a guy who is running an 1150 motor in a challenger.I've also contacted someone in BMW who does deal with a few guys in Europe using the 1100.Sometimes they are a bit hesitant to give advice on aircraft usage because of liabilities etc etc.

The only other popular flat twin is HKS rated at 60 hp and I've only seen one of them running, the BMer should be far superior!

Interesting you note that it runs fine while cold and then not fine when hot...the Motronic EFI uses two Temperature Sensors.

One in the Air Filter Housing (Air Temp) and the other in the Crankcase (Oil Temp)...surely it's adjusting the fuel mixture according to temperature from these sensors. I'd suggest a check to make sure the wiring to these is good and that they read proper values.

Since it's a '98 motor the original wiring and contacts are oxidizing...I'd thoroughly check over every electrical connection before leaving the ground again.

levert: Thanks, Its OK.
Thank you for trying to get more infomation. I had the same problem when I tried to contact a BMW. They did no want to touch it when they heard that we fly with it, suddenly they had a lot to do....

R111S: Thats right, except that the oiltemp is lokated in the bottom of the engine, in the oilplug with only 1 contact.
Best regards from Europe

Dear Mr. Foster (boxercup)
Thank you for your first post. I hope that E-Z Rider will find this thread and comment.
Regarding your 2 next posts, I dont find amusing and I dont understand this sort of answers to a grown man that is on this forum for the first time ever and trying to get help.
I have read your website now, and what you describe on your website does NOT give the same impression about you that you give on this thread. I like more the attitude that you have on your website mr. Foster. Please edit your 2 posts and continue with the good stuff and expertise that Im sure that you have. Thanks! Peter from Europe

Hi TrikeFlyer/Peter.

Robert Foster is generally pretty helpful. I think he was giving a bit of grief to Boybiker3, who also goes, at various times, as Ben and Peter. So, I'm suggesting, that perhaps what you thought was a poke at YOU, was, at most, a small one at Ben/Peter/Boy. I seriously doubt that he had any issue with you or anything you wrote, and to me, appeared to be trying to be helpful, or at least concerned for your safety.

Let's all be nice.

thanks
roger

TrikeFlyer, are you running in a pusher configuration? What rpm at cruise and what type of prop and what is your field elevation?

I have not heard back yet from my friends. I do know that a lot of the aircooled motors, especially in pusher config overheat easily and they take great lengths not to over run them on the ground and to duct them properly.Do you have temp gauges on the cylinder heads?if so what temps are you reading when the problem starts?

keep it simple. Install a new Hall effect trigger. If they are old they start to act up more when the engine is hot. Eventually they will leave you stranded. Probably not a good thing when your flying. There is a hole in the housing where you install a bmw tool, or home made one will work. This will lock the engine at TDC. After you install new trigger, remove tool start the engine. The rest you can use a timing light looking through the hole where the rubber plug is installed. Can't quite remember but I believe the oilhead has the 3 marks S, OT, and Z, (Full advanced). tjs

Thanks

Very cool, but I think I better stick to safe stuff like roadracing.
Props make me nervous.

roger albert: nothing to be nervous about as long as you stay clear from the propeller and dont stay behind the propeller with a tie aroud your neck!!
You will only forget the propeller once if you try to walk around it while you are adjusting something on the engine. It will probably cut your arm of if you stick it in the propeller, so this is not the sort of machine you want to put in the first Motorbike repairshop, I would be very nervous about the mechanics... But its really fun to fly!

You're probably right. Ever since watching my finger dangle a couple years ago, I'm a bit skittish around anything saw, chain, spring, or-propeller -like. I'm telling myself it's healthy paranoia, but who knows.
