    Hi All. Thanks in advance. I had had the Funduro 650 for a couple of years now. I have always had a lot of vibration up though the handle bars so much so it is difficult to see clearly in the mirrors. Is this usual for a F650?

    just been out for a test ride after servicing the swing arm and forks and boy what a difference. it's much more stable in corners now. it may have something to do with the fact that I think the previous owner had got confused with fork oil qualtities as I only got about half of what should be...

    So saturday the handle bars started shaking and pull from left to right. I thought two things steering head or front wheel bearings? Did some self test could not find fault. Anyone have idea?

    Hi, Have a favour to ask. :not worthy: If anyone has a F650 of similar in age to my humble steed could you please tell me what width are the standard handle bars. You may remember some time back I was looking for a set of original bars to replace the renthals that are currently on the...

    Ok, bizarre I know but I have the opportunity to buy a cheap ST but want to use it for green-laning etc. The question is, what, and how much would i need to spend to make it handle more akin to a GS? e.g. Presumably a bashplate, larger wheel, revised mudguard etc? Cheers, dan
