  1. F650 Single Discussion
    Yesterday whilst riding I had problems with both mirrors folding in at about 45-50 mph. Had I been travelling fast I could had understood this. The problem has been slowly getting worse ever since I have had the bike and I have done what the previous owner did and wrapped some PVC around under...

    Are the mirrors on the funduro ('95) for anything other than appearance? I can't find an angle where I can see anything behind me, I am 6' 1". Has anyone found a suitable alternative?

    How bad is the vibration on the mirrors with the F650?

    I have heard that there are such (small) round (lollipop style) rear view mirrors where the head of the mirror folds down 180 degrees back into the 'hollow' stem which, in turn, can rotate inwards and saty out of harm's way. Does anyone have any info on those :scratch: It has been suggested...

    Has anybody found any cheaper than OEM mirrors to fit a GS? Ones that don't move when you get a bit playful with the throttle, especially when it's warm?

    Anyone got any suggestions on how to see what's behind you when doing more than 70mph. The vibrations in my mirrors renders everything to a quivering blob above 70 (ok maybe 80). Under that speed everything is fine, visibility is perfect. Is it just me or do all single cylinder bikes suffer the...

    Well the wife fancied some kebabs, so I took the opportunity to drive into East London to get them on the bike as I craved a ride anyway. No less than 6 times car cut out directly in my path without looking...now my lights are permanently on as the 04 gs's lights are hard wired, two didi swerve...

    Anyone got a fix for this: The mirror stems are tight and do not move but recently at about 80 mph, my mirrors have started to fold back due to the pressure of the wind. Does anyone have a suggestion to increase the friction of the ball joint at the top of the stem to stop this happening? Thanks
