    Hi, I am going to service my 2004 650GS pretty soon, I am confident to carry out a full service (@13,000 miles or so) apart from the valve clearance check and adjustment. I have found a video link on you-tube which really helps but it looks like the engine he is working on in the video is...

    I have my 2004 dakar apart for a water pump change. The bike has 40,000k on it and I have owned it since 20,000k I do not known if the valves have ever been checked. The chain gang web site explains it pretty well on how to do it . Where does one get a tdc bolt and a crank stop bolt? I am some...

I started off checking the valve clearances which took most of the day (I'm sure it'll be much quicker next time) and that's as far as I got. The bikes now in...

    Hello, I own a F650GS that I love, but I find that the ground clearance is sooo low. I turned the rear shock to the "high" position, but the bike is still very low. I bought it new (yeah, yeah, I should have bought the dakar instead...) so there is no way that it is the factory lowered version...

    I have got a gen BMW high screen (the one fitted as standard on DAKAR) and genuine hand guards (again as std on dakar) and when you turn the steering to full lock the guards catch on the edge of the screen. I had my MOT this morning which i passed but the Technician was concerned about the...
