    Came to use my f650 GS after a month in the garage & within 10 mins. the rear brakes were binding, very hot & the brake pedal solid. After allowing to cool they released and seemed fine, but after another 10 min ride - the same again.:wall: I have since replaced the pads as the old ones were...

    My GS has been off road stored in my heated garage for the last 3 years without use, as I have another road bike which I have been using. I just went to MOT the bike and it failed on a warped disc , (the bike has only done 7900 miles from new) and has never been off road! Does anyone know if...

    My rear disc brakes were worn down to nothing recently so I changed the pads. The bike has been parked up for the last 5 days and the rear disk has rusted over. What should I do?

    :wall: I had my bike (2002 f650gs) MOT'd 2 weeks ago and it went straight through. This morning I was giving her (the bike) a polish, and I noticed the front disc has huge grooves carved in it. A close inspection of the front pads shows that there is nothing left on one of them! Metal on...

    Hi, this is the 2nd disc that has warped and I'd be very grateful for any advice to avoid this happening again. Would it be worthwhile changing the front caliper, in case of piston sticking etc. thus causing the disc to warp? Or is there a remedy to the piston sticking problem? If anyone has...

    I have a 2001 GS (ABS) which I bought from new, it has 7900 miles on it, and is used as a second bike, I had it MOT'd recently and it failed on "the front roller brake test indicated excessive fluctuation of brake effort". As the disc is hardly worn, can I get it checked before replacing it as...

    When I bought my Dakar it had this poncey tax-disc holder on it which was totally unsuitable and not correctly sited. Now that I have just taxed the bike I have bought a 'normal' holder and was looking for somewhere to put it. :doh: Where have you put yours? This is bound to get some...

    Hi folks... I have recently changed the front brake disc and pads on my 2001 F 650GS, due to MOT failure because of a warped disc. The new one was fine for the first week or so, but now it also has warped. Does this mean I have a problem with my wheel hub, and if so, what can I do to remedy...

    Hi all, I have a 2001 F650 GS.. I have to replace my front brake disc, due to warping and MOT failure. I'm looking for advice about which type of disc to replace it with. BMW have quoted me nearly £150 for a 'standard' disc, and I've found a company that will do the same disc, for half the...

    Okay, need some advice please. The tax disc holder on my 650CS is currently mounted on the frame tube running down in front of the engine, so it gets a lot of spray from the front wheel and consequently the water eventually gets into the holder and the paper disc falls apart. I've looked for...

    Looking through the forum I know this topic has been discussed in the past, however, I need to know what you people are using in terms of brake discs - stainless steel or cast iron? The price difference is phenomenal! BMW original stainless steel disc and pads inc. VAT = £151.82 (from Battersea...

    My GS is only 18 months old when I noticed the large build up of rust on the front disc. I would have though a BMW would have survived the long dry summer?

    Last night I was replacing my tax disc holder because the last one melted. . . too close to the pipes. Located left hand side where you'd maybe also have engine bars fitted. Well - couldn't find a good place for it. So the new one is in the same place. I expect it to melt :doh:

    Hi - anyone have one of these babies? Any good? :think: Carole Nash have very kindly sent me a leaflet on this lock and at a bargain price of ?9.99 I'm sort of guessing its likely to be a bit crap. . . :doh: However - I need a disc lock (Not as badly as I need them to fix my Dakar) :wall:
