    Hi, my F650 GS GD 2003 has developed an error. The Rev counter reading is about 2000-3000 revs too high. The Rev counter has a mind of its own. Behaviour: - Typically when cold the rev counter reading will be normal for the 1st 3mins of riding but after that will become inconsistent. - When...

    Picked up my 95 g650 from the dealer on Friday morning and was back within 4 hours. It was fine for the first 1/2 hour or so, then it started cutting out when coming off the throttle. It would restart ok, but as soon as I turned the throttle, it would cut out. Somehow I managed to nurse the...

    My bike was running fine until a couple of days ago when it suddenly started to cut out as soon as the rev's dropped below 2000rpm. Can start it as long as the throttle is slightly open and ride it as long as I keep the rev's above 2000rpm but as soon as they drop below this the bike stalls. Any...

    I started to write up about my ‘new to me’ bike, Bessie, a 1996 BMW F650 Funduro, on another forum when I came back from my first ever bike-bourne one night camping trip. Some of you here seem to have huge miles and some great experiences under your belts so I assumed that not many would find my...

    My F650GS has developed a slightly worrying problem :?. The bike has become difficult to start, you have to hold the throttle wide open while you press the starter to get it to fire, and even then it takes 3 or 4 goes, when it finally starts the idle is very rough, and it will often cut out...

    Good Evening all On the way home tonight bike kept cutting out every time I slowed down, and the rev counter showed crazy readings. I had a poke around and found the live terminal on the battry was a little loose, I tightened this and pulled all the fuses and they seem O.K. and put them back...

    Hi everybody I’m a virgin on the site! I have just bought a 1998 f650 strada which I like a lot apart from one thing; it keeps cutting out on tickover at the most annoying times i.e. at traffic lights, at junctions, in queues. :wall: I have been told by a mate that it is a common fault with...

    :think: Hmmm. Just been out on my bike and all was well. Parked it up in a bike bay in grey Kingston town (which also has a nice new extra bike bay). Came back to it - started and straight away cut out. Started it again and kept the revs up. All was well. Got to a junction and it cut out...

    What a day! Arrived home on the back of a truck - says it all! Been going for a couple of hours with no worries. Out of nowhere there's all kinds of hiccuping and cutting out going on. The rev counter is reading like 6500 rpm when I know for a fact that it is at about 2500 tops. Any time I...

    A few days ago approaching traffic lights my bike cut out in i think second gear, i pulled in the clutch whilst still moving and released it again and it bumped itself going again... Felt like i hit the kill switch or something? Today (3-4 days latter) approaching the lights i changed down into...

    hi folks I have purchased a 1998 F650, I have come up from a 125 scooter, a couple of questions she is cutting out when I driving, as if she is missing a spark even though the weather has been very warm! also the gearbox is very clunky can I adjust any of the controls and I find the brake and...

    Just wondering if anyone has ever had this - I know it has been mentioed before about it cutting out - and the odd time it does on me - always seems to be the same place, a speed bump when I am braking and shifting down - always at start of my journey... Anyway the thing is bike had not been...

    This has been found by many riders. Mine is the Dakar. Sometimes the bike will not idle and sometimes cuts out (once it did so on the motorway). BMW dealer does not know the cause so just reprograms bike (3 times now). BMW Customer support do not know cause and when BBC Watchdog is mentioned put...

    Sometime whilst filtering through traffic if I let the bike idle it cuts out, this also happens sometimes when sitting at traffic lights, bike starts again fine, but it's rather annoying. Bike (94 F650) runs fine apart from this Any ideas why it's cutting out? :wall: Well today cut out 2...

    I bought the bike, in general good condition last November. I rode it 180 miles on my first journey on it, down the motorway, no problems. I changed the oil and took it for a ride, then during a warm idle it died. Restarted OK but was wary of off-throttle hesitation. When making normal progress...

    I had a very close escape from death last Saturday when my 04 Dakar with only 750 miles on the clock back wheel locked up when I was doing about 45 mph. The engine then started back up again just as I was about to drop it. Any body else had this problem??
