    I am currently working on my bike, and one of the jobs is connecting some aux spots. Whilst trying to identify a good spot to tap into the High beam I have found 2 unused electrical sockets. Anybody know what they are for? I have scanned the chaingang knowledge, but not identified them. They...

    Hi all, On my 2004 F650 GS the rear light/brake light, which incidentally is LED, works fine when the ignition is on, but flickers when the engine is running. I dont think i have a problem with the bike as i connected the old std lamp and all works OK. My knowledge of LED lights is limited, i...

    My headlight is not the best, in fact I think it was the inspiration for Elton John's "Candle in the wind". I have changed the bulb for a higher wattage and whilst the high beam is now sufficient, main beam I consider it dangerous to ride though I do live out in the sticks with no streetlights...

    Hi new to the forum and the funduro. On turning on ignition I get oil lamp and neutral lamp illuminating should the temperature light come on as well as a bulb test. It doesnt currently.

    I have noticed that there is a trend with some bikers to ride with the headlamp on, nothing wrong with that, but there is also a few who ride with full beam on. Now with modern headlamps being brighter and having better lenses that is a dangerous way to go. Yes you may get noticed but you are...

    I have what I assume to be a wiring problem on my dashboard lighting setup on the Scarver. It started that for a while the backlight LEDS would intermittently flicker (not all at the same time), but today when I got to work, I realised that my neutral light was no longer working. (It had been...

    Hi everyone, My front and rear light are not switching on when I start the bike. Brake lights, full beam flash switch at the back of the handlebar as well as parking rear/front lights all ok. Fuses/bulbs are sound too and what I could check of the wiring loom seems ok... Has anybody out there...

    Hi all. My F650GS has be acting odd recently. Whenever I start her up, the headlights and the RPM panel etc all flicker. The issue seems to go away and come back randomly as I drive. My guess is a loose wire or something. She was giving me some trouble starting yesterday and I am pretty...

    Hi Any help would be welcome with a small problem I am having with the rear brake lights on my F650. It's not the bulb and have jumped the 2 contacts on the master cylinder which operate the light ok. Is the master cylinder at fault? or am I missing something obvious. All advice welcome ...

    Not sure if anyone else has seen these LED lights, but I bought a pair from BikeVis.com for 12 quid. I am well impressed. They are very small, I fitted them under the indicator blips on my Funduro. They put out 60 lums and only use 0.25amp. Wired straight to the sidelight. They give the bike a...

    More specifically my front lights - the small sidelight bulb is lit with ignition +lights on, but I don't have high or low beam. Brake lights working fine. Headlight bulb out, looks fine; fuses - ok. Switch in the throttle side grip maybe? Is this take-apartable by me? Any suggestions? Off I go...

    My hazzard warning lights seems to have developed a fault. When switched 'On', only the left side indicators flash. By switching the indicator switch to 'Right' then both sides flash. :think: I have not looked into this yet, but wonder before I start if anyone knows of this and can save me...
