headlight

    It looks like my main beam has failed. The reason for this seems to be that the clutch cable fouls the headlight connector and the white wire to the left hand side of the 3-prong headlight connector has broken away. Now do I have to take the whole front end of to solder this back together, or...

    Greetings fellow 650 owners. Having just taken ownership of a 2008 F650ST, I started cleaning it, and saw that the headlight was somewhat foggy inside. Something I have seen on quite a lot of bikes. I removed it from the bike and took out the bulb holder, and swilled lots of warm soapy water...

    Had T/T Xenon aux headlight fitted when got my Dakar 2 1/2 yrs ago, wired so that 'activated automatically with the high beam', ie no separate switch. Has anyone any experience of failure with these? Recently found that when switching to high beam it comes on briefly for second or two, then...

    BEWARE if you have big hands like me... For some rediculous reason, the f650 has about 3 inches of space between the bottom of the speedo plastic fest, and the ignition switch void...

    Newbie F650GS owner. Bike came with TouraTech twin projector headlights, which I found lacking in candlepower compared to my Suzuki 250 Djebel's headlight. I both have and plan to install the original BMW headlamp, which has a 55/60w bulb, but want to use a 90/130w bulb. I'm pretty sure the...

    Not sure if any body has encountered this before. Changing up through the gears and the head light main beam flashes doesn't do it all the time and sometimes it's fine. Only started to do it recently checked battery connections as I recently had the battery off to charge, not sure if it's just a...

    Hello all! I'm about to make my first 650 dakar purchase but there's one thing I really am not keen on and that the single front headlight with the 'alien' front screen. Has anyone tried changing/converting to the twin headlight system seen on the newer 800gs? Alternatively a nice aftermarket...

    You know the black stickers that you put on your headlamp to prevent dazzle when driving on the continent, well, are they available for our bikes or is it common to make your own with insulation tape ? any advice welcome, thanks Andy

    Hi All, Whilst fiddling around with my front end I think that I might have inadvertently adjusted the level of the scarver headlight. Does anyone know what level it should be at - I assume it's the same as doing car ones - park a certain distance from a wall and measure the beam etc? Also...
