I have been a F650 owner for the past 2 years. My model is F650 Dakar 2006 Twin Spark.
The past year I have been doing a ton of upgrades to my Dakar. This bike has been a huge project of mine
and I am loving the process. I will post photos & info at the end of this post on what I...
Can someone please advise me on what the paint code for the frame work of a G650GS would be.
Or what would be a good paint to cover up a small nick in the paint work, about the size of a small finger nail.
Unfortunately the bare metal has been exposed and I don't want any rust...
Hopefully picking up my GS in a couple of weeks after riding around on a 125! The bike is to be my workhorse so to speak at present I have been using a magnetic tank bag to carry bits and bobs to work and back in and this will not be possible on the new beast!
Basically I'm skint, after...
Hi everyone, new here!
Just bought my Dakar which came with a BMW topbox and the frame for panniers but not the panniers themselves. There's no makers names on them so I can't identify what type of boxes I need to get. Can anyone help please? Also, what's the sliver bracket just above the...
my bike is now in the mouth of a salvage yard cos some theivs wanted my bike and had second thoughts within a mile. :?
now its trash. heres to uk society... bring on the evolution then we talk about revolt.
So i did get my Givi panniers off and i have the bolts boxes keys and frames. all...
Do the later GS models use the frame to hold oil? The reason I ask is that the grease for the headstock bearings would`nt, perhaps, need to be high temp and a waterproof marine grease would be more appropriate.
All suggestions, advice and experiences appreciated. :not worthy:
I am changing to 'soft' luggage for a forthcoming trip to save weight etc etc. Ortlieb 47 litre saddlebags seem favourite.
Basically these are strapped together, slung over the rear seat and hang with the weight taken on the...
It looks like I managed to overfill my '96 Funduro at the weekend. Left it on the side stand as I went to pay/have a coffee. On returning to the bike it looked like streaks of petrol down the frame below seat to left side foot peg, I grabbed a towel to wipe the excess off and the frame...
Hi everybody, I am just about to get my bike on the road after a 3 year break of living in London. As my log book is in one place and my bike is in another - I need the frame number for the MOT does anybody know where this is on the bike. Thanks for any help you may be able to give
:whistle: Just got my bike all back together('96 funduro) after my fall last year.
Initially i thought the only damage was bent handlebars, blown fork seals broken indicators and scatched bodywork.
Now ive got all the fron end back together i appear to have bent something that could either be...
Hi and thanks to everyone who has viewed my thread. I'd just like to up date it with the numbers.
Reg is HX04 EBC,
Chassis number is WB10172A84ZH96252.
For some reason the engine number isn't on the log book but it's a black one and as far as i know there isn't anymore black engines around...
:whistle: Think ive found a small crack near the front engine mounting on the frame of my 650 St.
i know about disconnecting the battery but is there anything else that should be removed/ disconnected before i crank the welder up? :think:
I'm looking to get a Givi pannier kit for mounting luggage but the frame they suggest (the PL188 tube frame) doesn't seem to be listed for the 06 GS Dakar.
The Givi site lists it for the standard 06 GS, so I'm guessing that it would fit but none of the web sites you can order it from seem...
