Re: Hit a bump, R1100RS won't run

On the '94 RS there is a large multy wire connector under the right hand
side front service panel. Try un-plug and re-plug it. It happened to me that
the bike did not start after many months of non-use and this trick did the

Subject: Hit a bump, R1100RS won't run

'01 R1100RS, ~51K miles.  The shocks need replacing and I haven't
gotten to this, so the ride is harsh on bumpy roads.  I hit a large
pothole, hard, at 20 MPH.  Both the temp. and fuel gauges on the RID
immediately maxxed out at full bars and the engine died.  Couldn't
restart it, and had to push it home (fortunately only about a mile).

When I turn the ignition key to on, I don't hear any short mechanical
buzzing (which is the fuel pump, right?), and the RID maxxes out the
temp. and fuel (clock still displays correct time).  Starter,
headlight/turn signals and warning lights all continue to function.

Any ideas on where to begin looking?
