    I've a 2001 F650GS and want to replace the headset bearings. A local shop (not BMW) said there are 2 bearing in the headset, yet I looked at a shop manual for the 2001 model and it pictured only ONE, the upper headset bearing. So how many headset bearing are needed for this year bike and what...

    Hello, something really stupid happened to me. I started to ride my bike without taking off the lock which was on my front disk (I don't use it much, it was late and I was in a hurry, so I completely forgot about it). Obviously the front wheel blocked and the bike fell over on its right hand...

    After reading several post stating you should check the head and swing arm bearings as they are a weak point on the F650, I though I should check mine. I have had the bike for just over a year and have had no problems with either. But how would I know? what are the signs and symptons of failing...

    Hi After adjusting the steering head bearings as I replaced them a while ago I noticed that they do tighten up while the engine goes warm. And when I felt the steering head that didn't surprise me at all. It was probably about 70 to 80 degrees C. So one good reason when you adjust them to...

    Hello, Can anyone tell me when itțs time to change the bearings? If i was to have a car, i would have known that when the wheels start to rumble, then it is time to change the bearings....Is it the same for the motorcycle? And another question: i know that car wheel bearings are specially...

    Hi all, :-) I have been spending some pennys lately on the CS; I guess the good thing is that I can do all the work on the bike myself saves on expensive garage repair bills :think: As I need to replace the front wheel bearings would it be such a bad thing to carefully remove the seal from...

    Hi all, Just doing some service Items on my CS before the MOT is due. New front disk/ pads that sort of thing, I also changed the fork oil as it seemed a good time to change this also in the process I thought it would be a good idea to see the condition of the headstock bearings, “Arrr not too...

    Got a notch in the straight ahead pos'n on my '05 GS. Thought I'd try to loosen the adjustment to minimise it. Removed the bars, loosened the 30mm locknut but how to adjust the bearings? There's a big knurled plastic wheel that I can't move. Is there something I'm missing? Thanks guys - I know...

    Hi Dohhh I replaced the rear wheel bearings on my bike last night and having just looked at chain-gangs FAQ on wheel bearing replacement I noted that there should be a spacer for the inner spindle of the hub. When I knocked the old ones out there wasn't one there.... And I replaced the new...

    To day I jacked the front of the bike up to change the fork seals and noticed that there was a distictive also very stiff point in the straight ahead position of the handle bars. Move away from this to the left or right and the steering was nice and evan. There is no play in the head bearings...

    First post - I've recently become the owner of a 1997 F650 strada, with 50 odd thousand miles on it, it needs a bit of work, but my query is head bearing replacement, is it possible to renew the bearings without replacing the bearing tracks if they appear ok, visibly. From what I've read using...

    last night the bearings in my back wheel decided they'd had enough. i thought something was odd when my feul consumption started to go up last week (down to 170 to the light, from 190), and yesterday morning it started to feel like it does when you don't have quite enough air in the tyres and...
