    Hello all, having had a couple of very bad wobbles lately I'm looking to fit some crash bars. Having read lots of previous posts on here I'm not sure whether I need both engine crash bars and/or fairing crash bars. I figured the price they would cost would save me heaps compared with a spill...

    Well, Around 2 years after passing my bike test in the UK, I have had my first crash on two wheels. Thankfully, It was not on my F650, but rather on a SYM 150cc scooter. Also, instead of being at 60 (avg speed on f650) it was at about 30kph, and in borneo. Still, a really crazy experience...

    Hi all, I'm relatively new here and have read a lot of the discussions and found them very interesting and useful. Something I can't seem to find though... does anyone have any experience of fitting crash bars to a Funduro? Any pictures of them fitted? I'd appreciate any pointers! Cheers, Matt.

    just thought this may be of interest the new SHARP crash helmet scoring system that is being introduced. not all helmets have been tested; the site is pretty much a live database that is being continually updated, but by the look of it the big hitters are going to get upset!

    I had touratech fairing crashbars on my old F650GS but after a couple of drops the mountings would bend as they're only held on at one end, and the crash bar would push into the fairing and require bending back. I've just bought a newer dakar and I'm looking to fit another set of crashbars on...

    I guess I am now a fully signed up member of the biking community after suffering my first crash a couple of days ago..... At the end of a 160 mile journey (one stop in the middle) my longest ever journey in only 10 months of biking, and still grinning like an idiot, I crested a small rise to...

    I'm after some advice about crash helmet choice. i currently have Shark S500, which leaks like a sieve in the rain and is, to be honest, an utter pain in the arse. noise is not TOO much of a concern, curable by earplugs, but i would dearly love a crash hat that doesnt leak. only other...

    Well Ive finally done it. After 8 years of riding Ive had my first off. Luckily I was off road at the time razzing along a muddy track on salisbury plain. I was getting too cocky and lost the front at 30 mph. I was fine but the bike slid along on its side acting like a plough. After digging all...

    Does anybody know the difference between the crash bars for a pre 1997 F650 and post 1997 F650. I've been offered a pair, but don't know if they are for a pre or post 1997 bike. AR

    Hi all. A member of the glorious general public stepped out in front of me from behind a van. I veered, he kept walking and caught me up so I hit him anyway. Twisted my right knee quite badly (crutch, comedy limp), and more seriously, crushed the tip of my left index finger either between clutch...

    Hi All, To get into my work car park, you have to leave your bike on its side stand on a fairly steep slope while you wander over to buzz the security guard. This morning a work colleague left his Honda CBF600 like this and while he was walking away from the bike he heard it fall over :-(...

    Hi everyone, I came off my ST about an hour ago, as we set off my girlfriend was thrown backward and I ended up doing a brief (but probably quite impressive) wheelie with Katie hanging off the back, the bike ended up on its left-hand side. Katie's fine, although her boots are slightly the...

    Hi Please can you recommend a better crash helmet than this one, I have a shoei syncrotec 2 I've had it for six months and I have gone off it. It's too noisy, flies seem to be able to get inside! and I seem to have an air stream going in my left eye at all times, changed the visor it made...

    Does anyone here have a set of the Touratech fairing crash bars on their bike and if they do, do you think they are any good i.e. if you drop the bike (on road, not offroad), will they be any good? I like the look of them on paper, just never seen them on a bike and just wanted to find some...

    I bought a set of crash bars for the F650 and to fit them you need to remove two bolts that hold the engine in the frame. The first one came out OK but the second one won't move. The nut came off OK but the bolt itself (an allen headed one) won't shift. I tried using a socket allen key and a...

    We leave in Oct for a RTW trip lasting five years. I will be riding my 05' Dakar and my girlfriend will be taking her 04' F640. I need a good set of crash bars that will take five years of abuse. Could anyone recommend any? I also need to replace the flimsy bashplate with something a little more...
