Any advice please on removing a seized front engine mounting bolt,its a 99 funduro,the lowest of the front mounting bolts has seized solid,a common problem sadly on most bikes using this system,(Guzzis especially):(
I have tried spraying it with plusgas,WD40 etc,to no avail,its difficult to get...
Ive tried to find out, but could anyone shed any light about a mounting plate.
Whether or not one is needed for a genuine box to be fitted to the bike?
BMW 2003 F650GS Dakar
Please would a metal-bending company offer a base plate (like the one on the base of the rubbish BMW top-box) so people with late model (Twin-spark) F650 can use them to mount a decent box?
There are too many people chasing too few broken top-boxes to recycle the bases...
I've got a Stebel Magnum on my R1100S Boxercup and it's lovely and fog horn like.
I've got one for my Funduro but I'm struggling to find a mounting location. Has anyone here mounted one of these and if so where did you find a suitable spot?
On the underside of the F650CS, there are two circular mounting points that are for (I think) the auxiliary stand:
Can anyone with easy access to their scarver please tell me the diameter of these holes? Bike is not near me currently and I am try to hatch a cunning plan... :think...
know this comes up now and then, but could someone give me some pics (PM me if its easier?) of what there tomtom rider looks like mounted on the bike.
What are the best options? Handle bars.... or has anyone done anything better?
Thats for a GS by the way.
Has anyone got the Zumo unit mounted in a really good place?
By that i mean in the line of sight.
Ive been interested in getting SatNav for quite some time now,
but the mounting position of the Zumo has to be right as its quite a
I guess most would use the RAM mounts it is supplied...
Has anyone mounted the BMW top box on their F650CS? I bought a second hand one, complete with fitting rack and despite getting a decent guide from the seller, am a little confused as he didn't unfortunately have the fitting instructions.
One question - my CS has silver 'arms' attached...
i went and picked up my new Dakar yesterday 8-)
its an ace bike, but has thrown up one obvious question (so far)
can you get a bike specific givi mounting plate so you can remove the little cover (and get at the seat release)? seems like potentially a lot of aggro if you have to...
Just bought a 2007 F650GS. It's one of the ex-BMW offroad school bikes, a bit scruffy but it was cheap and still has BMW warranty until 2009.
I already own a 45 litre Givi Monolock topcase, but looking on the Givi website the rack they list for the GS is for Monokey only. Is there...
I decided to test the strength of the mirror mounting on my CS this morning by knocking it against the back of a dustbin lorry. Turns out that the lorry was stronger, and the mounting bolt sheered off... :oops:
This is the part here:
I checked Motorworks and nearly fell off my...
Probably an obvious solution to this one.. like something's missing!! Have just received a bmw top box off ebay for my 2006 gs. Problem is whilst it clips into position and locks fine, it rattles around - should there be a rubber mounting on either the rack on the bike of the top box mounting...
well just trying to sort out the scarver.
the rear indicators mount onto the black plastic y piece.one side is cracked.after a 700mile weekend rideout,it is nearly hanging off.
looking at the mounting ,it is VERY thin walled plastic.
i looked at a couple at the breakers and they were...
I've pretty much decided to go for the Garmin Quest sat nav, but wanted to look into WHERE I would mount it. The mount itself is fairly easy as there are plenty of suppliers.
The best gap seems to be the inside of the windscreen, above the speedometer, but I'm not sure if the vibrations would...
