    I've had a look round the forums on this subject and can't seem to find an answer. I've just traded my 2004 Blackbird for the fabulous 650 Dakar. I love the BMW and it's much more "me" than the super-extreme Honda, but I find I get lots of wind blast on the Beemer. Can anyone recommend a...

    Well, I'm now the proud possessor of a lovely red F650ST. Rode it home today in pouring rain with brand-new hairy tyres..... :uhoh: I'm considering fitting a higher screen, but was wondering; looking at the ads they give heights, but where is it measured from? Bottom of the original? Edge of...

    just wondering, has anyone engineered a single spark aftermarket can to fit a twinspark? and if so, whats involved? as i understand it, the diameter of the connection pipe is the only difference although i'm not sure how much!!! i think that the hanging/mounting arrangements are the same -...

    Hi. I've had my 53-plate GS since May, use it daily, and have done 5000 miles. I'm looking to add some extras for winter, namely a higher screen and the touratech handguard spoilers (I'll get piaa bulbs and some reflective stickers from nippy normans). Trouble is, I'm finding these things very...

    Hi Guys, I have a question about exhausts. I have seem this rather clever system for mine online (http://www.twobros.com/cgi-bin/shopper?preadd=action&key=005-450417S). I say clever because it has a standard straight through pipe on one side, and in the space on the other side where the second...

    My bike is due her 12 month service next month, so while I'm at it.. Remus carbon exhaust with removeable baffle. I'm having a little difficulty with finding out whether there is such a thing available for the CS even with extensive searching on google and here. The main Remus site doesn't...

    I popped into Cooper Reading this afternoon to ask what effect fitting an aftermarket exhaust would have on your warranty cover. Andy said that, although technically it invalidates related warranty claims, he has never seen or heard of this actually happening. In fact he knew of someone who had...

    :help: I am after an aftermarket paddock or centre stand for my CS, to make it a bit easier to clean the bike and potentially remove/refit either wheel if required. I don't want to pay BMW accessory prices (I'm tight like that !). I would be interested to hear from CS owners who have some...
