    I'm glad its all working ok now - sounds as though you were a bit unlucky to have accidentally found a way to assemble the starter set up wrongly!

    Out of curiosity, what do you mean by the location marker on the starter? As far as I can remember, the starter motor simply pushes into engagement with the starter gear wheel? Also, do you really...

    Thanks for the background information. With that low mileage, it's very unlikely that the engine will have suffered any appreciable wear unless it had been run with very poor quality oil (ie oil that...

    I've just had a look at your previous posts and can see that after replacing the Sprag clutch and the battery, you found that you got a click from the solenoid but the engine would still not turn...

    Just to clarify:

    1. The power to the headlight comes from the load relief relay

    2. The load relief relay feeds power direct to the headlight switch

    3. The two outputs from the headlight...

    The way the headlight works is that power comes via the load relief relay which is designed to switch off the headlight when you press the starter button. If the main beam still works it means the...

    It's only a 5 minute job to check the fuses:think: Remove the seat and the fuse box is at the front on the right. The attached info from WayneC shows which fuse is which.

    If it's a simple fuse replacement job then you'll need a new 7.5 mini blade fuse which I believe is the black coloured one. Unfortunately, they commonly come in 5, 10, 15 A versions and you may need...

    The first thing to check is that fuse F4 has not blown which protect the LO beam circuit. Fuse F5 protects the HI beam circuit. With a bit of luck, F4 will have blown and needs to be replaced.

    Glad you sorted it! I have to admit that until you mentioned your problem I wasn't aware that the charcoal filter was mounted underneath the tank in the way it was. For most people it is probably a...

    Jeff. I assume you would need to raise the rear sub-frame with the petrol tank still attached by removing the lower fixing bolts on either side and then pivoting on the upper bolts? Rather than going...

    I've been trying to understand how the charcoal filter is fitted. From what I can see, it pushes up into a tunnel in the LHS of the fuel tank from below and is held in position by a small bracket. I...

    The problem doing a compression test on an F650GS is that it is fitted with an auto compressor which reduces the pressure in the cylinder on start up. It's possible your measured pressures are ok....

    To keep everything in perspective, I've just had a look at the average mpg figures reported for different model years for the F650GS. For 2002, the figure was 50 mpg compared with 60 mpg for my 2006...

    What a motorcycle fuel injection engine relies on is the O2 sensor in the exhaust to tell it whether the fuel-air mixture is correct. In principle, if this is not working correctly then you could end...

    Normally this type of flooding is due to the floats in the bottom of the 2 x carbs not shutting off the petrol when the bowls have the correct level of petrol in them. If the bike has not been used...

    I can only comment on some of the issues.

    55 mpg does seem a bit low for an F650GS but it depends on how hard you ride it. If you are worried about the engine running a bit rich, I would check the...

    Well done for sorting the problem - it would have been interesting to have seen what the ECU was actually reporting in the way of any fault codes:think:

    The first thing I would do is a diagnostic test and check for fault codes - with a bit of luck the ECU/BMS will tell you what is happening:think:

    I probably revved mine a little to speed up the process of getting the engine to its normal operating temperature!
