    I am rebuilding a 2006/2007 Dakar which had burnt out a while ago. Have replaced all of the damaged parts/covers/ect. and the only thing standing in my way of completion is the wiring harness. Only a few wires got burnt so I decided not go for a new or 2nd hand one and to rebuild it myself...

    Hello The battery on my 2005 Dakar has died and is totally done. I was just about to order one when someone told me that you can buy a maintenance free alternative which is same battery, size etc but is sealed and you dont have to check levels etc. Can anyone advise if this is preferable to just...

    Had a little come-off today in wet grass. Only my ego and my rear brake pedal injured. I "straightened" the pedal in a vise and its functional but weakened and will rust. So, time for a new pedal. Is oem the way to go or can anyone suggest an alternative that is better able to survive the...

    Hi, Both my heated hand grips have given up and I'd like to get them sorted before the weather turns. Has anyone got any suggestions where I can best get my hands on replacements (used or new)? Many thanks! Martin

    I need a thermostat for my 2002 F650GS and Motobins says they don't have it. Where else should I look? They'll need to mail it as I'm in West Africa.

    Hi F650'ers, I'm a newbie here and couldn't find any existing threads about top boxes. The grey plate that came with the 1999/2001 bike didn't have a top box that came with it. Can anyone recommend one that fits the original rack, or do I need to screw a new plate onto it? Did a search on...

    Okay guys i need one of you that's willing to partake in the quest of my non starting F 650 GS (circa 2000) :bowdown: What i need is someone who'd be willing to travel to me on their F650 GS that has a bike similar in year to mine and would be willing to temporarily exchange their ECU (BMS...

    Hi guys, im currently riding a f650 dakar and am doing a lot of travelling at the moment, which means a lot of high speed motorway riding. My helmet is a shoei hornet ds, as I like the peaked off road looking lids. But I find the wind catches under the peak so much and kills my neck. I was...

    Hello all, I recently bought a 1998 F650 Funduro. I think the previous owner had it sitting around for a couple years with very little use. I just took it for a weekend blast in Belgium (very nice, and happy to recommend some good routes!) which is where my little problem started. About halfway...

    Hi, I have been offered a 2000 F650 GS for a very reasonable price, however, i am sure it has a low seat and the bike seems a little low for me. (i'm 6'2") I have also found a 2004 standard seat , can anyone advise if 1) it will fit a 2000 bike and 2) will it make that much difference to the...

    Morning all, Just got to work (60 miles from home). Bike was fine on the way up here and turned off okay while I unlocked the bike shed gate. However, when I went to restart it and roll it into the shed it would'nt start. At first I thought it might be trouble with the ignition barrel, but...

    Hi I have been a member of here for a while but am a reader of posts, not a poster (usually!!) Anyway, my problem: I was riding my 1997 F650 yesterday doing about 45mph, when I heard a "pop", followed by a "zzhhhhhhmmmm" noise. Neither noise was that loud. My bike then coasted to a stop...

    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...
