    Can anyone tell me a foolproof way of testing a speedo sensor. I've read all the stuff on the chaingang site and i do have a multimeter but i dont understand the symbols on it or what to do with it. I've been through all the cables and the connections and all seems fine and the bike runs well...

    So I was coming in after a run out on my GS, yup putting it into the garage, was about to put it on the centre stand, plonk I was only on one of the pins and start losing control, best to drop it rather then struggle, pop the mirror on the right hand side has come off. :wall: Damn it! :uhoh...

    Anyone knows how to change the barrell lock on the BMW hard bags ? I went down in a hailstorm, pulling out of the road, broke the latch that fastens the LT bag to the support frame. Thanks ! :whistle:

    don't ask me how I got away with this 'cause I don't know. after the sh!tiest of days ever I was on my way out to a talk at my astronomy club that I've been looking forward to and about 5 miles from home I seemed to be losing power and the bike just felt wrong. I pulled into a petrol station...

    my Funduro tacho doesn't work and I knew this when I bought the bike. I was advised that it was definitely the tacho and not the cable as when the cable was removed it was in one piece. I must admit that I'm not convinced the tacho IS fauty as the cable was thrown away and I have no way of...

    I have just joined - hello all. My clock always reads 00.00. I'll reset the time and it will return to 00.00 when i restart ignition. Can it be replaced without buying a complete system? Also, just bought the bike, I think it has a low seat - anybody got a high seat to swap. Will confirm...

    Hi Everyone. I have a 2000 F650GS. Fitting a Touratech front mudguard I sheared one of the fork brace bolts. I sprayed all the bolts with lots of WD40 before attempting to remove, but alas one still sheared. I cut a slot in what was left, but still no luck with a screwdriver. Any ideas...

    Some thoughtful rider decided to lean their scooter against my bike and has broken off the Full Beam/Passing switch. Spoke to BMW and have been told I have to buy a complete left side unit. Is there anything I should know about replacing this part myself as the bike has heated grips and I am...

    No power to fuel pump. Before I start taking the bike to bits, is there a fuel pump relay? And are there any other fuses apart from the 4 in the box? Or am I doomed to search for a break in the wire? It was going fine. I parked up for about 15 minutes or so. Then when I went to leave, it...

    Hi everyone, Stupid Dakar coughed its guts up this morning in Chelsea. Was due to go in to CW on Sat anyway for warranty work, but the problem caught up with me (won't start again, sounds horrific). BMW Emergency are supposedly running around making everything pretty again, but they won't give...

    Hi All, I took the plunge and had a set of tkc80 fitted on Friday. I took the wheels off myself. When putting the front wheel back on, all was going well until I went to re-fit the clamp screw for the front axle. I noticed that the thread of about half the screw had metal in it. I removed it...

    Grrrr - got back to bike last night for the commute home and some little ***** has smashed my right hand mirror :doh: Question - can I replace just the mirror glass? or the whole round swivelling part? or do I have to replace the whole arm assembly too? BMW manual seems to suggest the...

    Hi all, I can't believe it was back in September that the hooter packed up on my 01 GS and I've only just got round to fixing it. While I was replacing the damaged radiator and had the bike stripped down I decided to sort it out. The problem was (as DanDare suggested when I asked for advice in...

    Taking my chain off to clean it the other month, I unscrewed the front sprocket cover (as you do). On removing it, part of the engine came with it :doh: The bit I'm refering to is the top screw hole (there's 3 with the cover). I managed to put the screw back into it and place it carefully...

    Managed to mangle my big toe playing footy at lunch-time. Anyone (outside of MotoGP riders) tried riding an F650 with a broken toe (left foot unfortunately so gearchanges too) or am i gonna need to get a taxi home?! :wall:

    Has anyone else suffered this? Yesterday after doing the fork seals started the bike without helmet on and noticed a louder than normal exhaust note. Closer examination shows that where the two pipes go into one the lower one is broken straight across the weld line looks like a very weak weld to...

    My panniers have one broken hook (plastic) and one about to break. Anyone know of an aftermarket fix? :think:
