    Good morning mates. I took the ignition tubing cap out yesterday and I unscrew the small bolt from inside. When I got it out a small round piece (like a fuse) came out and then a spring. I remove that small round piece from inside (some friends told me that this is a filter for the high power)...

    Hi all, I'm new on here and a newish F650GS owner (bought bike end of December). Unfortunately, I had to get a nice RAC man to bring me home on Sunday as the bike conked out, after misfiring all day. He was very helpful and by a process of elimination he diagnosed that the coil wasn't working...
