I have just purchased a 2003 GS to add to the stable... no 'users' book though :doh: hence the seemingly daft questions :mrgreen:
How do I turn the ABS off :dunno: How do I turn the heated grips on ;Um:
Both switches are present but niether seem to do anything :tears:

Being a little cynical, if it doesn't get released in the UK market, I would suggest it is only so that it doesn't undermine sales on the bigger, more profitable bikes.
Also apart from a black engine, maybe new ecu programming I didn't notice any differences to the original F650 at the end 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...
Guess what; head bearings gone. I'm arranging to have them sorted at a local bike shop but need confirmation of the spec numbers of the bearings. Is it 30205? I've seen this number on lots of threads but all seem to relate to single spark bikes. Mine's an 04, twin spark Dakar.
Hi Troops, it's getting less every year. A week in France in 05, Eire in 06, reduced now to three days up Wales way in 2007. We consider this a short recce, with a view to a more substantial ride out a few weeks later, but next year it'll be once round the M25 and doss at Clackett Lane...

Well, I have survived four months since my test, so I've decided it'd be fun to join up and see what goes on. I've read some references to a 'rally' in N. Wales in May - is this true? Sounds fun, and I am there late May/early June anyway.
Also, I am about to disappear on fieldwork...
You all seem like a nice bunch of people :-D Do you ever all get together at a rally. If no would any body be interested in meeting up for the weekend camping in Wales next year? I know a biker friendly site.
F650 Rally. North Wales 12/05/06 ?
Does anyone have any pictures of genuine BMW handguards for the F650?
I was considering the ones Motobins sell (part number 32 71 2 316 588 ), but they don't have any pictures of them on the site. Are these the ones which are attached at the bar-end as well as the control area?
Any help would...
