    I have a 2005 twin spark F650GS. Changed the headlamp bulb today, from a old 100/80 to a 60/55 super bright one from Halfords. Rode home 10 miles, fine. Rode to work tonight, 18 miles and when I switched off the bike, the headlamp stays on :scratch:. I have had to remove H4 conector to turn...

    I am returning to Old Blighty beginning of next year as my job contract finishes in Barcelona in February and I will be moving to Southampton in March. I am most probably going to bring my Spanish plated F650ST 1997 with me as I cannot bear to part with it after 3 trouble free and enjoyable...

    Everything works fine on my 'new' 06 5800 mile red F650GS except the headlamp 'pass' switch! I'm hoping it just needs a wee bit of a clean and a spray with WD40 or something but when I do remove the switch cover will there be a spring or a ball bearing or anything that will shoot out with a...

    After a horrible ride over the Snake Pass tonight (cold, dark, fog, rain etc..) I've finally got to admit that the headlamp on the F650 is not as good as it could be... Has anyone found a decent way of getting more light out of it? HID upgrade ? I was struggling to hold 50 MPH through the...

    The Dakr's headlight is hardly its best feature. I've gone for a 100/80W bulb to stay alive but to be honest I only fell really comfortably on the open road with both low and high beam on (my swtitch handlilly sticks to allow this. So, trawling e-bay I find HID (High Intensity Discharge)...

    Well it's been lovely weather for riding - maybe a tad too hot. :doh: I was wondering if any one has changed the front light on their GS - it's the one part that seems to let the look of the bike down, I think the 1150(?) or 1200 has a much nicer light setup... 8-) Has anyone added a helmet...

    Hi, Has anyone else suffered problems with the headlamp aim adjusters? Being plastic I have found when taking my bike for the MOT on Saturday that when under tension they can split or strip the thread and thereby negate any adjustment. Luckily I know the guy who carries out the testing from...

    Hi All, Been messing with the headlamp a bit on my 04 GS. Put a Xenon bulb in which it really nice but want to lift beam. I've messed with the wheel under the headlamp but this does not make much difference to the beam height. Is there another way of altering the height ? Cheers Gazza

    Hi All, Rode home in wind a rain last night. Half way home headlamp beam was moving around all over the place. Got home and found the holder for the right side of the lamp had broken so it was free to move where it liked. Spoke to dealer this morning and they're going to try and get the new...

    There has been much lgged in regarding extra lights and the techy stuff like modulaters and wigwags, I now wonder if they are really anything more than a toy for us The scene is the M25 (I decided to slum it and use the 25 to get home) Thursday afternoon/evening. I am heading home on the A3 to...

    Has anyone experienced broken cables connecting the headlamp connector? The F650GS model is probably coming up for being nearly 4 years old now and my 2001 model has no main beam. Why? well the cables coming out of the 3 way connector at the back of the bulb always catch on the front brake hoses...

    I know some of those who owned the F650 Funduro and Strada models have fitted higher wattage bulbs, but I wasn't aware of anyone with the odd-shaped F650GS headlamp doing so. I bought a 130W/90W bulb from my local car rally accessories shop (for off-road use only) and tried it out last night...
