    Some times when I have long trips, after stopping my bike and park it, I can see 1 or 2 drops of water from the left side. I first thought that it was the oring from the thermostat cover on the lower left side of the radiator because the drops where coming from there. I took the thermostat cover...

    Hi, I just bought a 2002 F650 GS and am loving it :-) However I have some oil leaking from the front right hand fork. It is coming out of the top of the fork tube (I think that's what you call it). Any tips or suggestions or should i just run it to my local garage ? Thanks

    Mates I woke up this morning and got ready for work (like every day) and then I start my bike while I was preparing my self (gloves & helmet) I start to smell fuel:uhoh:. I then realize that I was having a big fuel leaking and I could see some drops in the garage floor (the engine was running...

    I have engine oil leaking from the airbox overflow pipe. I've been told that it is likely that my piston rings are shot and I either have to bore out the old ones and fit new or just get a decent second hand engine. I don't want to get rid of the bike as it has a lot of sentimental value after...

    Earlier I had posted a pic with the amount of water I took from the gas tank as I drained it for shipping to my new residence in Bretagne. Well as it rains a lot here, I quickly concluded that my gas cap leaks water into the fuelling cavity, and, if later, eventually into the tank. With a steady...

    Hi everyone, me again. I've been noticing small leaks of oil on the LHS of the bike, making the rocker cover 'oily'. At 1st i thought it may be aseal in one of the rocker cover bolts, but no. I have now tracked it down to the breather hose that leads from the rocker cover to the oil header...

    Only yesterday I was saying to SWMBO how good kit was these days. My Streetguard suit is 3 years old and had never leaked. Today, I got to work OK, but coming home tonight (47 miles and torrential rain pretty well all the way) it came through the front. On first examination I can't figure...

    Recently carried out a 12000 mile service on a 2000 funduro and found working on it a sheer delight, although topping up the oil was a little fiddly, and had to do it gradually, as suggested by Wilbur anf Maxis.Also changed the plugs and coolant,(easy)and then set about changing the fork...

    I have a 1997 F650st with a leaking rear shocker, now BMW tell me that the rear shock unit is not serviceable, is this the case? Also, if I do have to replace the whole unit do I consider an aftermarket replacement? Does anyone have any experience of aftermarket shocks? Many thanks John :howdy:

    Whenever I open my top box it has a half inch of water in it from being parked outside in the rain. Anyone else seen this? Where is the rain likely to be getting in and how can I stop it? Cheers

    BMW actually agreed to a new replacement top box which i picked up from Clarks Motorcycles this morning. If this one leaks then i will have to get a pack of bin liners or buy a Givi top box which i know will not leak. Incidentally the box leaked worse when the bike was parked in the rain rather...

Well they didn't tell me that when they sold it to me so i said it's Not Fit for Purpose and i expect better from BMW so please replace it or refund my money and i will buy...

    Just bought a Genuine BMW top box for my GS but find that when it rains i get a considerable amount of water inside the box. I can find no obvious point of entry and the seal is intact. Has anyone else experienced this trouble? :-(

    I have the touring oiler kit on my 650gs. It was on the bike when i bought it...the problem i have, is it is pissing oil from the resevoir fill tube/ breather tube, which runs down the mudguard and luckily enough catches on the plastic guard that goes across the rear wheel. I am getting no feed...

    I've just discovered that my front fork-seals are leaking. My question is how hard would the job be to repair them or if anyone had the number of someone in my neighbourhood (Ipswich) who could do the job. ?
