Hello all, after an absence of a year I'm very nearly an F650 owner again :D
I'm going to look at a 22K Mile f650gs on a 2000 plate. I believe it to be a single spark. What should I look out for on the test ride?
I need advice on problems specific to this model (surging / stalling?), all the...
So following the decision to see if my 1995 Funduro still worked (see this) I went about sorting out an MOT.
I wasn't able to find an overhaul kit for the brake calipers, so flushed the front and rears with new fluid, and cleaned them as best I could.
New chain and spockets came through the...
So off I went packed ready for the 2 week adventure. I booked a B&B in Ashford for the night before to soften that awful ride up there. The B&B was alright apart from in the morning the manger was complaining I was slamming the door at 4 o***8217;clock in the morning. I listened and apologized...
I just placed my deposit on a '99 T plate f650 Funduro - picking her up next week!
I've had plenty of bikes before, but they were mainly for pleasure - a few GSXR's, an R1 and a Blade.
My little group of riding buddies slowly started getting fewer and fewer in numbers, and after one of...
been a while since i posted in here

bought an older suzuki gsx600f, had it for about 2 months, crashed into a deer at about 35mph, and by the time i got back to the scene someone had stolen it from the roadside!
i was lucky, had a...
Dear F650 lovers
I am currently riding my Dakar from London to Cape town through the middle east. At present I am in Iraq Kurdistan and it is very hot. I climbed to the top of a mountain range the other day and on the way down my back brake just gave up on me, floppy brake pedal. The mountain...
Has anyone ever seen/had/made/envisaged a back rest on an F650 (classic)?
I have had a look on the chain gang and cant see any mention of a backrest,
is it a good idea or is there a company who sell one?
My step dad could fabricate one for me perhaps, but if one exists in the market...

Rode a few small bikes when I was younger (and less married!).Still got my old Triumph saint in the shed where it has been since my son was born He has just had his 18th!
Brought a 1995 Funduro (lime green) to ride to work as the traffic is getting silly for a thirsty old car. Have...
hello there everyone, well im back on the road, took the bmw out on tuesday, the first time this year, it felt sooooooooooooooo good to be out on the road, ive been taking her to work aswell, anyone else been out? :wave::-D:-):sunny:
Glad to be back on i bike and on a BM, well i understand half a BM and half an Aprilla with a bit of Rotax thrown in !!!.
Looking forward to getting the bike at the weekend, not sure about the ride home, 200 miles at this time of year does not appeal.
My Funduro has developed a clicking/creaking noise from the rear suspension. It can be felt if I put my hand on the back tyre whilst moving the bike up and down. I have removed the rear wheel, and the bearings appear in order. I greased the rear spindle on reassembly. It has just passed its MOT...
Not that I've been away, just been without an F650 since my GS was written off last August by a white van hitting me from behind :uhoh:
I needed transport and so I rushed out and got a Bonneville, a good buy, 6 months old and 0 miles! Whilst I can't fault the Bonnie, it is so smooth (and...
Since my little incident on 20 October I havent ridden my bikes. :-(
Until today that is, when I got my clobber on and my CS fired up first time. I had a little trip round sarf London, gently gently. I hadnt really tried the HID headlamp either since I fitted it mid October, simply brilliant...
A bit more than a month after Beaker was stolen, and thanks to John in Tamworth, I'm back on the road.
Had a lovely trip up to Tamworth yesterday, it's always great to put faces to Forum members. And what a bike - '94 Funduro, but clean! I can't imagine...
