    I bought a 10 year old F650GS a few weeks ago and after 30 years without a bike I am enjoying running around on it. However, the gearbox seems very clunky, especially engaging first gear from neutral and going from first to second. As the engine warms up the clunking seems to get worse. I...

    I am changing the chain and sprockets on my 1999 Strada. This has the later type of gearbox mainshaft with a nut. The manual says there should be an o ring behind the sprocket (I have a new o ring). Is this only applicable to the earlier models where the sprocket was held on by a circlip - I...

    I am replacing the chain and sprockets on my '99 Strada which has done 22,000 miles so it might be the original parts. I was ready to put mega torque on my breaker bar to remove the gearbox sprocket but the nut was not tight, although the tab washer was in place. The old sprocket has...

    Anyone know if it is possible to fit the later model ('97 - '00) model gearbox shaft with the bloody big nut to the earlier engine, or fit the whole gearbox set up? Just pondering options at the minute. IIRC you can fit the later model engine as a direct replacement, which means I can use the...

    Hi all, A good few weeks of riding on my CS, and really getting into the swing of things now. Trouble is, now it's all not quite so new, I'm starting to notice things. Like a pronounced 'thunk' when engaging first. Is this normal? The clutch seems to bite quite 'high' too - is it adjustable...

    I've had my GS about 3 months and its just coming up to its 6000 service but have a question about the gearbox. Occasionally when changing up from 4th to 5th it will miss, not go in to 5th and appear to sit in idle. I then have to repeat the change up and end up looking a plonker when the bike...

    I've just received a new kit from Motoworks. The gearbox sprocket, BMW OE, is a different design. The old one has the rubber anti-rattle coating but not the new one and I know this is no issue. What bothers me is the small recess on the old sprocket into which the circlip sits, helped by...

    Am I alone in having a really annoying/dangerous gearbox on my Dakar. It has developed a tendency to drop out of second at slow speeds into neutral and also at times, when changing from neutral to first the bloody shifter pops back into neutral. This is particularly hazardous when pulling away...

    Had a very bloody hairy ride home last night. The bike (Dakar) dropped from 2nd gear into neutral on three or four separate occasions ? mostly at slow speed. However on one occasion it happened as I was turning across a busy junction and (without wishing to sound big?headed) had I been a...
