    Does any one know the size of the nut that holds the brake pedal on? Also, is it possible to buy the bushing for the pedal?

    Hi All, I have just sent my rear caliper off to a chap in Rossendale, who has charged £45 including return postage to service and reseal the caliper. Will post an update when it comes back but thought it could be worth mentioning as the caliper is supposed to be non servicable...

    my rear brake was seized on last weekend, I have managed to free it with WD40 and pushed it into the calliper but I now no longer have any pressure at the brake peddle. The brake fluid level in the reservoir is higher than it was - I don't understand how I could have lost pressure in the...

    Help! Just replaced rear pads, rear brake line (new goodridge braided hose) added a new rear master cylinder and could not get it all to work - pressure was non existant - so took rear wheel off again and started afresh. Now it would appear that the rear calliper is slightly misaligned and I...

    Hi, Dose anyone know what size bolt/screw is needed to hold the front brake light switch on to the leaver? I noticed something hanging off this morning, and realised it had come off. I had to tighten it up befor, but evidently not tight enough.

    Does anyone know of any adjustable levers that would suit the 650? My wife is finding it difficult to ride the bike with total confidence as the front brake is too sharp and the lever is non-adjustable, therefore the span is too far away from the grips to use comfortably. I'm trying my best to...

    Any one fitted a wavey disc to their funduro or other bikes for that matter? Any better, worse than standard? New std front discs don't seem to come in cheaper than 120 beer tokens (allthough theres a company selling rear ones on ebay for 40) theres armstrong wavey dics on ebay for about 60...

    Had a little come-off today in wet grass. Only my ego and my rear brake pedal injured. I "straightened" the pedal in a vise and its functional but weakened and will rust. So, time for a new pedal. Is oem the way to go or can anyone suggest an alternative that is better able to survive the...

    Well, I thought everything was going to well. After getting the exhaust on etc. I decided as the bike was on the bike lift, to change the front pads, The brakes were working fine but there was not much meat on the pads. So off with the front wheel off with the calliper cover off with the old...

    I am puzzled, the rear brake light on my 96 Funduro has stopped working on the foot brake. I have searched for the rear brake light switch as stated on the Clymer manual and cant find it. Is there a peculiar difference in some models or has anyone any tips, thanks

    :scratch:06 650 gs, 25k km After a long ride city ride my rear brake felt spongy and very little stopping force. I could push the brake leaver right down to little effect. On checking, the brake disk and calipers were very hot. On a normal commute, about 25 km, this is not a problem. Checked:-...

    Be aware that the Wunderlich brake lever for my 2002 F650GS DOES NOT FIT and Wunderlich are unable to supply a solution so tough luck. It does not cover the brake light micro switch so the light stays on. They say adjust the switch but as far as I can see it is fixed and not adjustable so I have...

    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...

    I serviced the dakar over the winter months, fitting a scottoiler etc, but I also purchased some Goodrich Braided hoses, which IMO make a huge difference. I also got some risers off here, but once I fitted them, the aftermarket hose is too short and pulls really tight when I turn right. Do you...
