    I have a recently acquired 2003 F650GS with 30 000km, and well maintained. The bike starts fine, but after 20km city driving today it dies when stopping. It starts easily, and idles fine if kept at ca 2000 rpm, but dies if not throttled. The problem persists. The bike appears to be fine otherwise.

    I have recently managed to drown my bike in a stream. It is a 2006 F650 dakar. I pumped the water out a plug hole and it ran fine all the way home. I have since been flushing the oil out, changing filters etc, but it will not idle. As soon as the revs drop below 2000 it dies. Anyone got any idea's?

    Does anyone know how to stop the engine idling at 2000 rpm. Even after a 30 mile run it still ticks over high. In the manual it says tick over 1500 rpm.

    The oil light on my dak has started to flicker when at idle after being run for a while at high revs (after a motorway run). It only flickers/flashes, and doesn't stay solidly on, it's fine on short runs, the oil was changed about 3000miles ago, there's plenty in there and I can't see any leaks...

    Bike is all finally complete after swapping the engine over, it runs but it will not tick over on idle revs - have to keep throttle open slightly. managed to take for a ride around the block but cut out at each junction or I took off in with too much throttle. following haynes ive put new plugs...

    I have a 2000 F650GS (fuel injection). The idle speed is a touch high - initially around 2,000 rpm, then slowly settling to around 1,600. Is there ae easy way to adjust the idle speed? The throttle stop screw on the throttle body seems not to have no means of turning it, which suggests to me...

    just spent the last couple of hours cleaning the carbs and have found that one of the idle mix screws is stuck. It won't screw in or out. As it is soft brass I havent gone too mad on it but does anyone have an idea of how I can get it out. Plus gas hasn't helped.

    My F650GS has developed a slightly worrying problem :?. The bike has become difficult to start, you have to hold the throttle wide open while you press the starter to get it to fire, and even then it takes 3 or 4 goes, when it finally starts the idle is very rough, and it will often cut out...

    Hi, Was out riding on my 01' Dakar the other night and I noticed that when I pulled up at at junction my engine idle speed was 2000rpm. this contuniued throughout the ride. When I got on the bike the next day, the idle speed was about 1400rpm. which I think is about normal? Anybody had this...

    Here's a question for you. What effect would the engine idle speed have on the general running of the bike - say for example the dealer had set up the bike with an idle speed of 3000-3500 rpm - how would that affect the bike's running ?

    I've just noticed a knocking sound coming from the engine in neutral and the faq's suggest either adjusting the idle, or it may be the compression releaser or cam chain tensioner. As I can't find it in the manual, can anyone tell me how to turn up the idle? cheers, tony

    Started the bike this morning and it was running like a twin with a dodgy plug. :wall: Turned the lights on, and it ran an awful lot better up to about 3k. :think: Haven't had time to look at it yet (plugs & electrics first, obviously), but was wondering it anyone has seen this before and can...

    Recently purchased a 1994 F650 Funduro (22000 miles on the clock) and it refuses to idle when warmed up (over 15- 20 minutes continuous running) unless I keep the revs at 3 grand. I have had the carbs off twice and they seem to be clean and properly adjusted. The bike has no other problems...

    Hi y'all. I'm now the v v proud owner of an oldish but fine example of a 1994 vintage f650 - comfier than my old VFR, less risky than my gsxr6 and more fun than my honda 90 (not hard)...Anyways I'm getting a problem with the oil pressure light flickering at idle once the engine is warm. I've had...
