Hello,

Any help here, I want to make sure I am in the right path.

I have a 2016 S1K, around 3k miles. During the last 2 week I had this issue 4 times, 3 while riding on a street, 1 entering on the highway @ ~60 mph :005: , the bike will completely turn off, power, light, display everything. I had to pull over and turn the key off and on, the bike will start like nothing happened.

I have found out that this has been an issue on S1KRR but early years? and they solution was the ignition switch which was the small box below the ignition lock $120 (P/N61-31-8-543-110). However for the 2016 it seems to be that you have to change the whole ignition switch/lock (P/N 51259831864) ~$240 plus labor, it does come ready for your existing key.

Has anyone has that issue? was the path I taking the correct one?

Thanks!

If you haven't already done this, I would check the battery connections and grounds.

I've read in the past that the kickstand sensor could cause that issue.

This would be my guess as well.

The side stand switch could cause the motor to turn off, but it won't turn all the electronics off (so ignition off) as mentioned.

This is a scary situation to have - as if the ignition cuts out that means rock hard suspension, no abs, no lights.... :005:
I got nothing.....

Thanks!  I doubt it is the stand, bike turns all off even the display.

Indeed scary, last one was on the hwy, so now I am hesitant to ride this bike. I have done some research and I seems to be the ignition switch, in the past it was just the electric part on the switch (small box at the bottom of the lock switch) a $120 and easy to install but now BMW has combine the whole lock switch and ignition switch into one part. When you order it, with your VIN number BMW sends it ready for your existing keys.

My doubt is that this is just a possible fix, based on a similar issues people had in the past on S1000RR and older models 2011/2014, this part is $250 plus labor.  I guess I am going to have to take the hit and see if it resolves the issue.

Thanks

It could be the ignition switch but I wouldn't bet against it being a battery issue.  I would remove it and have it load tested.  If its more than a year or two, I might just go ahead and replace it.  I would also scotch-brite the connectors at the battery and at the chassis ground.  Easier than messing with the ignition switch for now.

You are right, I will check it.
