    2007 Twin Spark F650 GS Dakar. Just clocked 10k miles on it and recently i've noticed dead spots low down the rev range. I'm not sure if this problem has come on suddenly or steadily. The symptoms so far are: Dead spot in low rew range, particularly when setting off in 1st. It just doesn't...

    after getting frustrated about not having an operating horn and waving my arms at idiots on the roads, and also no flasher, I searches hard (and with suggestions and help from this fine forum); many times unfolding the 'onion' to get to the loom to find a break. I noticed the switches had...

    Riding F650GS 05. My factory fitted heated grips have given up the ghost. 1) Is there an easy way of fault finding and repair? 2) Would it be easier to replace them myself with BMW replacement grips, so i can use existing wiring as a pull through (if possible). 3) Do I take them off and put...

    The bike sounded like a bag of nails on Saturday but as it 15 minutes to kick-off I just pressed on to the match. After the game, the bike was dead. Turns out the battery was completely dry! All is well now, but I can't for the life of me work out how a duff battery can make the engine sound...

    Half way up the M1 in the rain on sunday, my 03 F650 Dakar died, the rev counter went completely mad and the engine spluttered to a stop. It would pop and bang a bit when turning over to start with, now it still turns over fine, but there's no sign of it fireing. I've checked the plug and it's...

    My back wheel is dead - I found a snapped spoke, replaced it and re-tensioned the spokes. Now after every ride there are more loose spokes. A replacement is on the way from Motobins (£50). A woman at our club also runs an F650 and she had to have both wheels replaced due to the spoke nipples...

    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...

    After looking thru Chain Gang and this sites search capabilities, there is surprising little about the cat removal of carbed or non carbed bikes. Only one success posted from an extrovert on 2 posts, but it was not content or fact based posts. The cat removal seems to be the biggest advantage...

    Actually, it's not quite as bad as the subject line makes it sound! Went out to my trusty steed Monday morning of this week (v. cold, bike outside in the garden for the night) and started it up & rode it out of the garden. I stopped the engine while i locked up the garden gate and put the rest...

    Hoping somebody can come up with an answer. :dance: Riding my 00 GS the other day when the engine just cut out in top gear. Never given me any trouble before and no sign of trouble afoot. Coasted to a halt and wouldn't restart and still refuses to fire up. Engine turns over and there is a spark...
