    Hi, Wondering if the below describes a normal clutch, or it's a bit slippy: -Can't do low gear clutch drop wheelstands, seems clutch slips just momentarily instead of putting power down. -High power clutched gear changes done too quick results in a little slip. -I have no issues with slip while...

    Hello all from Oregon, I replaced my oil and coolant last night in my 1999 F650 Funduro. Ran great after but I dropped her trying to put it on my stand. Knocked a large nut to the ground and now my bike will start but not go into gear. I can shift through gears i think but the engine doesn't...

    Hi, I recently bought a 2000 plate F650GS single. It's my first big bike after passing my test in June and I'm really pleased with it. I think I made a great choice. The bike runs well, but I think the clutch may be nearing the end of its life. The low gears can be a bit stiff and clunky to...

    I bought a 10 year old F650GS a few weeks ago and after 30 years without a bike I am enjoying running around on it. However, the gearbox seems very clunky, especially engaging first gear from neutral and going from first to second. As the engine warms up the clunking seems to get worse. I...

    Hi Guys, '94 Funduro having trouble getting netral whilst stationary. Clutch starts to engage soon as I think about letting the lever out. No slip at all. Is this adjustment or something more serious. Cable appears tight, when I tried tightening it just got harder to use. Any ideas?

    I've just come back from a great 3 day trip to the Nurburgring, the Eifel region and the Ardenne. The bike performed faultlessly, but with one strange occurence. I noticed the clutch slipping one day, but the engine was hot and I thought, well its done 25k miles, maybe it is time for a new...

    My F650 twin when started in neutral fires up fine. but when trying to start up in gear, the engine is slow to turn over, as if the clutch is partially engaged. Clutch operation appears normal when riding. BMW will not acknowledge the problem, and on a recent service, pronounced the bike, and...

    I have a complete Rekluse clutch assembly that I need to sell. It came fitted to a 2006 F650GS Dakar that I bought about two years ago with under 4,000 miles on the clock (and has only done a few hundred since). I didn't need the clutch for normal road use (but could see the benefits of it for...

    Finished a Bikesafe course in South London, great instructors and great weather but boy does my left wrist hurt from gear changes etc. I don't think it was an excessive amount of clutch work but part of the problem is that the clutch is very heavy for me. Should I be worried about something...

    F650GS/M. Any ideas which of the clutch cover bolts had the crush washer on it? Assuming the top 3 long ones in a clockwise rotation are 1, 2, 3..... Finally got my new gasket but I've messed up the screws and seem to have a spare short one with a crush washer which I'm pretty sure is off the...

    Hi. First bike so apologies. My biting point is gained on just a small squeeze of the lever; doesn't take much. I'm worried that the clutch is on the way out (28k miles) as I feel the revs aren't consistant with the power. Any help appreciated. Cheers Paul

    Hi! I have just bought a 1997 F650. The problem i have is that having small ladies hands, i find it difficult to reach the clutch in a hurry. it gets worse as my hand tires or gets cold. The brake is much the same. Any recommendations as to an aftermarket adjustable lever?? Cheaper the better of...

    Hi all, I need a new clutch lever as I dropped my bike on ice this morning and snapped mine. I've currently got a funduro lever on at the moment, however it fails to work the interlock. This is ok for now but not perfect. I only need the lever (Upto the pivot) not the whole mount etc. If...
