    Ok just got the F650 home and I must say I was well impressed with the engine on the trip home. A1M and M25 was a lot easier than I thought, the engine is a real corker :thumb: However I was told it had been lowered by bmw on first purchase, so it may have been but its had the fork seals...

    Hi After four years I have decided that I wanted to do some more touring and bought myself another bike and traded in my BMW F650ST. I know that I will miss it but the new bike has other advantages. I will still keep an eye on this site and want to say thank you for putting up with me here...

    As I have had bikes all my life I have (as far as time and practicality) done all my own maintenance. On my F650 97 I have stripped and serviced the cooling system, rear bearings, front bearings, exhaust front pipes (oh why do BMW still go for mild steel bolts on stainless fittings), carb strip...

    Hello and Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and all the Very Best of Luck for 2008. In brief, I'm coming home in February to visit the oldies and will be trying to buy all the things that I canna buy over here. Oil seals, spark plugs, filters, bulbs, probably a chain and sprocket set and some...

    Well I spent a glorious weekend in the garage stripping the bike and doing an oil change, new filters, fettled the chain and spruced the bike up after some horrible winter riding over the past month. Lovely. And then I tried to change the spark plug :scratch: How the flip do you get to it...

    Just trying to figure something out, and wonder if anyone knows Does the GS have a 'basic' version it can drop into to 'get you home' if something isnt quite right with the bike?

    Hi All, Well it didn't go as smoothly as I'd hoped but the forums are now on the new server and seem to be running OK. I've got some posts to tidy up and remove some references to the old site which I'll do over the next few days. Sorry the site's been unavailable on and off over the last 24...
