I'm currently in the market for my first bike, and am eyeing up a 2004 F650GS Dakar. The catch is that it has gone 80,000 km (50,000 miles). A number of threads in this forum suggest that the bikes can go a long way without running into problems, but most of those threads are about 20...

A fantastic trip for 3 of us, all on funduro's, which all were perfect.
Decided to purchase a newer model now...
I have F650 1994 with only 7k. Thing is that I can get only 150 miles with full tank and when it runs there is always a smell of unburned fuel. I am going to adjust the float level. Clymer and f650.com say it should be 14.6 mm but it is for 1997-99 bike with 132 jet. Mine has 140...
Only 13000 miles. White. MOT until April 2010, Taxed until end of November.
Complete with BMW top box and BMW city panniers. All with fully functioning locks and keys.
I have owned the bike for around 18 months, and the previous owner bought it new from the dealer. In my ownership it has...
well, here we are again. so after i bought last week my 2000 - f650 gs, i discovered a few more things: i use the bike, the miles add up, but when i restart the bike, the mileage goes back to where it was whe i bought it. i did 80 miles so far, but when i restart the bike, goes back 80 miles...
I took the battery out my bike today so I could get the airbox off and sort out a leaky hose. When I put it all back together and turned the ignition on it just showed "- - - - - -" where the milage is normally displayed. When I started rideing it began counting back up from zero again. Is there...
How much is it worth - my 2004 GS 35k miles, very well maintained and big jobs recently done (water pump, s/h bearings, braided hoses, r wheel bearings). Of course not showroom, but no damage, no corrosion, new tyres, vg c&s etc. Thinking of sticking it on eebay.... Any clues?
Whilst out for a ride the other day I've developed a bit of an oil problem - it's p**sing out from somewhere towards the top of the engine!
I've not had chance to start taking bits off to have a look yet so I've no idea if it's something simple or not but the bike's done 34.5k miles and...
Im just looking for some advice. Am considering buying 2004 F650 from a person I know - its in good condition with full service history, however it has gone 50000 kilometres.
Anyone got advice on the track record of the F650 and/or just general advice to help making a decision?
Hi everyone just trying to get a discussion going about what mileage people have done on their f650's, be it the early classics or later gs's and not forgetting the funny looking cs's!!!!! What is the highest recorded mileage that you have heard been done on one in the UK?
well I have had a remus and k and n air filter on for a year now and on longer trips was seeing the reserve light come on at around 140 miles. Out of curiosity i removed the sponge from the air filter and now i am seeing 160 miles before reserve. Can any harm be done without this sponge in place?
Have joined the forum hoping you guys could possibly help me with a very odd problem I have at the moment. It started when my 650 dakar reached 7000 miles, now no matter what distance I do the mileage will go up whilst on the journey but as soon as I turn the ignition back off and then...
:think: I`m sure that this question comes up regular in discussion when at the pub or at club meetings.
What is considerd to be a high miler on the F650 engine?
With so many used as despatch bikes and over-landers the world over, this debate may go on for a while!
If someone would like to...
