    I would like a centre stand for my '04 CS . One discussion is which centre stand - and I have read all the posts, concluding that "you pay your money and take your choice. There are as many for a given brand as against. A second issue is whether a lowered seat on an F650CS imposes any...

    Hi everyone, been a lurker here for a while, great site with nice members. After some research bought a 2008 K72 F650GS with only 2,000 Km's up for my wife, with a lowered seat. VERY impressed with the quality of the ride, what a fun bike! It gives you loads of confidence from the off. (I have a...

    Hi folks Looking at getting rid of my FJR1300 and getting something a bit more versatile so I can get off the beaten track a bit. I really fancy an F650 ( 800 cc ) can anyone tell me what the standard and lowered seat height is please ( as I'm 5' 6" ) ? I also tour a lot on the...

    I'm finding that my brake pedal is too high. being 6'3" doesn't help I think and the awkward angle my foot / ankle is in when I'm on the back brake is causing me to brake a bit heavy at times (locked the back end up when doing a bit of an emergency stop last week :oops: ) has anyone found a...

    Hi all, I need to know what to look for to identify a factory low F650GS. I will be looking for a 01 or 02 model (funds will not allow newer). How can I tell if the chassis is lower? Do lower versions also have a different seat and if so how will I know if they are fitted with a standard or...

    Hi everyone. I am new on here so please forgive me if I am doing things incorrectly. I Have a question. It is about seat height. I am thinking of buying a F650 but as I am somewhat vertically challenged (5'1") I am not sure about suitability of the bike. Does anyone out there have experience of...

    The subject of seat height often comes up, so I have some info that should help a few riders out there who are unsure about which way to go: The following refers to a 2004 F650 GS DAKAR, however, I have taken the measurements in way which should allow comparison ton any F650. I have compared...

    Hi, does anyone know how to check/set the float height on the funduro? I seem to be getting fuel starvation, a bit of hunting as i'm riding and also the fuel level in the filter runs low and fill up again when i stop. I had the carb off after i had found water in the tank and i think i may have...

    I have a 2002 F650GS and being brutally honest my bottom and the seat are not the best of friends and anything around a couple of hours, it's uncomfortable. It's been pointed out to me that I have the lower seat although I always thought I had the higher one so question one - can anyone point me...

    Hi, Have seen a CS advertised a "low seat height model". Does this mean that all the CS's have a low seat height or are some CS's built lower from the factory?

    Hi I want to buy an F650 as a first/commuter bike having not ridden in 20 years. One bike (a 2004 CS) I'm looking at has the optional lower seat but I'm 6ft tall. Would the lower seat be uncomfortably low for me ? Can I buy a higher seat, ideally an original BMW one ? Breakers yard maybe ?

    Hi to everyone from a newbie! I'm seriously considering the purchase of F650 and one of the selling points for me seems to be a reasonably generous seat height option (especially the Dakar). Are there any 6ft+ riders out there with any advice or otherwise helpful comments? The brochure also...

    The Wilbur, a member on this forum, can modify your seat to suit you. Check out his Web Page on my website: http://www.enduroalexis.com/enduroalexis_completed_038.htm Alexis. :riding: :-D

    My wife has bought me a 650 dakar from a friend, it's 2001 16K blue and white colour. I have looked at the specs for the seat height and found one at 870 and one at 795mm height. Which one is correct or did BMW produce two types? I am picking up the bike tomorrow and don't know wether go...

    Hello all, Just parted with hard earned money for a GS from a gsxf, very happy with the mature riding position and build quality, the bike I've purchased has a lower ride height which was ideal for the previuos owner but for a 6'2 eyes of blue blonde hair..........sorry drifting...

    I've fitted an Optimiser charger my "new" (to me) '97 Strada and "lost" the 20 minutes the battery was disconnected on the clock. The clock is working fine but I just don't seem able to adjust it. The lever on the clock is working and I can hear the click when I press it in but nothing happens...

    I've just bought a 2000 F650GS with 9,000 miles and the engine seems a bit noisy ...... are they all like that? I thought the 2002 1150GS (6,000miles) I just sold was noisy, but this is almost agricultural; it's not quite making a knocking sound, but it is slightly concerning. Also, is there...

    I own an '05 Dakar and every time I stop on the bike I'm on tip toes. So I was thinking about buying the lower (std) seat for my bike. Has any one else done this and did it make any difference?
