    Anyone any ideas what the maintenance schedule is on the swingarm bearings, and the rear shock too? I greased the swingarm bearings at 18000, now it's at 27000. I'm thinking of heading to the pyrenees in june so I'm just starting to think about what needs doing with the bike and the touring...

    Hi, just wondered if anyone has had a sprocket/output shaft bearing failure on a GS?? I've got this weird feeling something is going wrong, and starting to get oil splatters over my RH boot, also small drops of oil over the floor, will investigate over the next week (on holiday soon) Checked...

    Hi all, Just replaced the steering head bearings on an 01 f650 st. I've ridden the bike once (felt like the wheels were going to fall of at 20 mph), loosened them (felt like the wheels weren't really there going into corners, and tightened them a little more... Is there a good way to decide...

    Has anyone got any experience of changing the main bearings on the F650 Funduro engine? I've the got the cases stripped down ready. I've made a blind bearing puller for the gearbox mainshaft and balancer shaft RHS bearings, they're straightworard ball races so present no worries except the...

    Hi guys, I'm looking to replace my SHB as they badly need it but I'm unsure about the special tool that they say you need. Is it really required? ;Um: If so, where is the best place to purchase one? And if they're expensive (And being BMW we all know it will be!), does anyone have one they...

    Hi All, I have just bought a rather poorly sounding GS version of the F650. My local bike shop has stripped it down and the major problem has turned out to be the balance shaft bearing completely collapsed. (not the only problem due to bad workmanship) It looks like there has been an extra...

    Looking for a bit of advice please. I took the bike (2004 Dakar Twin) to be serviced three weeks ago and they seemed to have done a decent job but they mentioned that the head bearing would need changing sooner rather than later. I hadn't noticed anything riding it before then, but since then I...

    morning all. the Dakar went for it's first MOT a couple of weeks ago and got a clean bill of health apart rom an advisory on the rear bearing. under normal circumstances, i'd think this was a bit soon given that it's only done 7,000 miles. but it has done a fair amount of off roading so i'm...

    Hi folks Guess what; head bearings gone. I'm arranging to have them sorted at a local bike shop but need confirmation of the spec numbers of the bearings. Is it 30205? I've seen this number on lots of threads but all seem to relate to single spark bikes. Mine's an 04, twin spark Dakar. Can...

    hi guys just had to replace the headstock bearings on my 2004 gs after 12000miles so trying to find a cover that was on my first f650 strada, i seem to recall that there was a plastic cover on the lower headstock that stopped most of the dirt and rubbish getting in and possibly making the...

    Yes you guessed it bearings gone on my bike at 9000miles although i suspect theyve been like it quite a while.A couple of questions however,from previous threads(ie. http://www.f650.co.uk/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=261) There's mention of bearing numbers but are they the same for the GS as the...

    Hi all my bike is a 1999 f650. I recently went for a tour for 2 weeks up to the west of scotland with my dad and got back today. It was great fun but i couldnt use my lights after the 1st day because the battery went flat so had the RAC out and they came to the conclusion that the regulator...

    I have just noticed that my rear sprocket has lateral play of about 5-10mm. I have stripped it down to inspect and can not find any problems with the bearings. The inside spacer does however seem to "float" in the carrier with a bit of movement. Is this OK or do i need to replace the carrier...

    Apologies for not getting it right on my earlier post. Here it is in glorious panchromatictechnocolor: The dark coloured radial marks on the inner face of the bearing are the ridges caused by the rollers digging into the soft bearing face, due partly to lack of grease and partly to the softness...

    If this works it is a photo of a cream crackered Bulgaria steering head bearing, in case anyone wants to verfy that the one they took out was duff. Note that you cannot undo things to look at the condition of the bearing without actually taking it out, by which time you are installing a new SKF...
