    Riding to work on my 2004 F650GS last week the indicators stopped working completely. When I rode home they worked again then stopped. The same for three days before they gave up completely. Fuse was good (horn/light/brake lights still working) and switched the relays around to no avail...

    Hi everyone. I just picked up my first bike--a 2003 F650GS. The micro-switch for the front brake died, and could not be resurrected through cleaning, etc. (tested with meter). Since the wiring also looked a bit rough, I bought a new switch with the wiring rather than soldering an eBay switch on...

    Well Brunhilda failed the MOT today. Not just a fail but "Do not drive until repaired (dangerous defects)" You are probably visualising brake pads worn out, fluid pouring onto the discs, bald tyres etc. Not so. It was an intermitent stop light. Light stayed on then stayed off. Despite a...

    Hi there, I have an intermittent fail on my indicators and horn. Sometimes they just don't work. I've tried the battery and connections. I've pulled the relays in front of the battery and cleaned up the connections. The wiring diagram points to the load relief relay, K9109, which I thought...

    So after managing to drain my battery and having stuck it on charge for over 24 hours my bike still refuses to start. Lights, heated grips everything else works fine but when ever I press to start all I get is clicks from the solenoid. Now thats annoying but heres where it gets weird. Of course...

    Hi everyone, My Dakar has started having light issues. Turning the ignition on lights up the instrument panel, but I have no head/tail lights, indicators or horn. After being on for x long, they may start working, but there isn't any real pattern to it. I have checked the fuses and battery and...

    Hi, Another question from the newbie! My 2001 F650GS refused to start today after standing for a couple of weeks unused. It sounded like the battery was low. The lights came on OK but it just didn't have enough juice to turn over the engine enough to get it going. I do not have a battery...

    I've just noticed that my odometer and horn aren't functioning on my GS. I don't know if it's 2 separate issues, or due to the same problem. Strange thing is that apart from the odometer, the instrument cluster works fine - including the trip meter! I've checked the fuses - there are only...

    A new gremlin has emerged, some sort of electrical fault which I have experienced a few times now. Seems to be resolved by wiggling the starter relay / solenoid. Do these fail over time or should I be looking elsewhere? Battery is good and terminals are tight.

    hi im new , and the proud new owner of a f650 2000 model which seems to be quite sick, could do with lots of help to find out what the problems are. Ok, when i bought the bike the previouse owner had to jump start it , he said that it was because it had been left standing and that it just needed...

    Hi, I own a 52 plate 650 that has not been used a much over the last 6 months. I thought with the onset of summer and a new job I would check the bike over prior to the mot, and discovered I have no lights (front or back) indicators, brake lights or horn. I checked the 15amp fuse, which I...

    My 01' ST has develloped a strange electric fault, she runs normally, as long as there is a load on the electrical system, ie : lights on. If all load is removed, she missfires about 50% (one every other "bang") If I tun a headlight on, she runs great, same when the cooling fand comes one, or if...

    Rooting around underneath the seat I have noticed that the connector block between the VR and battery is brown, crispy and damaged on the live side. Has anyone replaced this part and if so is there any special part or will a regular junction box do the trick?

    First off apologies to Mr Mod if this is in the wrong Forum! Second apologies to all that have been (or tried to) get in touch regarding the fork issue, i've had quite a lot going on lately. Right now onto current (pun intended) matters! If there is anyone out there who is electrics savvy...

    How much extra power draw can the standard alternator/battery cope with, and does the Dakar have a higher alternator output. I only ask as with the extra spots and heated grips on the battery doesnt seem to cope?

    Hi all well sitting in front of me is 3 boxes. An HID kit, aux running lights and a Zumo. All have been supplied with a wiring harness with in line fuse. Question is if I wire all 3 direct from the battery what sort of extra drain am I going to expect and will my 2 hr a day commute be enough...

    This one has me really confused. :? Recently, working on the assumption that it was summer, I have been forcing myself to wear my summer gloves. This has meant almost constant use of the original equipment, dealer fitted, BMW heated hand grips on my Funduro. This morning, it was so summery...
