    Lately I have a noise coming from the instrument panel mostly in idle and also in 3000 rpm. When I touch it with my hand it stops. I took them out and inspect it for cracks. I also inspect if there is any contact with other plastics or metals. I inspect the rubber mountings from behind. The...

    Hi Group, This is my first posting to the forum. I recently purchased a year 2000 BMW F650GS with 35k miles on the clock. The bike appears to run fine and is a pleasure to ride, however I do notice the engine does sound a bit noisy (knocking type sound) when the engine is idling at 1500rpm but...

    hi, i have a bmw f650cs and there is a strange kind of whining noise when i am slowing down, the slower i get the deeper the whine gets, thought it might be the brake pads worn down but they look ok and i have slowed with each brake individually and it still happens the same, does anyone have...

    I finally got around to putting a standard exhaust back on my bike at the weekend. When I bought the bike last year (12k miles ago) it had a standard exhaust but with the baffles/cat removed, it was so loud you couldn't realy hear the engine noise. Now with the standard exhaust back on I've...

    Hi Folks, I wonder if anyone can help me with this one please? I have a 95 Funduro with a 45,000 mile engine in it. It started making a horrible "grinding/rattling" noise afew weeks ago, and I don't know what it is. Its almost un-noticable when the bike is cold, but gets worse at as the bike...

    The bike sounded like a bag of nails on Saturday but as it 15 minutes to kick-off I just pressed on to the match. After the game, the bike was dead. Turns out the battery was completely dry! All is well now, but I can't for the life of me work out how a duff battery can make the engine sound...

    Hi all, I'm new to the forum, so I thought I'd start with a goodie. I bought a 40,000 mile '94 Funduro as a non runner. Rebuilt the carb, as it was quite worn. Found that the sprag clutch was destroyed, with lots of metal bits having come off it. replaced the sprag to find that the ignition...

    '94 Funduro. Just replaced rear wheel bearing, swing-arm bearing and replaced loose/damaged spokes (among other things). Now that I've ridden it I notice a ticking noise from the back and it clunks when selecting 1st gear at stationary. What could the ticking be, is it connected to the clunking...

    Afternoon all. I was riding the other day and heard a strange sound. It sounded as if a stone had hit the sump. I heard it again the next day but haven't heard it since. I'm pretty sure it was an internal sound, any ideas what it could be? By the way, my bike has a habit lately of not always...

    I've got a 2005 GS which has never caused me any problems until last night. I went to start as normal and all I got was a clicking - the bike never even turned over. I turned the ignition and waited for a couple of minutes, bit this time it turned over but wouldn't start. After possibly the 3rd...

    Morning all - the noise (hope I spelled it correctly) happens when I'm pulling at low (c. 2500-3k) revs, usually around 20-30mph, in 1st or 2nd gear. After searching here and the Chain Gang I figure it's either a) the cam chain tensioner, or b) the ompression release mechanism. If it's the cam...

    I have just got my 95 Funduro, (13000 miles), and I have ridden it 25+ miles. The bike has only done 150 miles since it's last MOT and has the original front tyre on it; hopefully this gives you an idea of the bike. I have been told it had a recent oil change, but the last invoice shows BMW did...

    Hi all, I'm hoping someone can help identify a problem that's just started occurring on my 2001 F650 FLSE (also known as a Strada I believe?!?). After the engine has warmed up, it sounds a bit different (not any noisier, just a slightly different sound to it). And more importantly, when...

    New convert here. Gone from Honda Hornet to 650GS at the weekend. Love it. One thing - when I go 40 or above I get this really loud howling noise. If I stretch up a little noise disappears. I think its the screen that's causing it. Has anyone else experienced it? What can I do about it please?

    Can anyone help? I have noticed a strange intermittent squeak from the rear wheel which also gives a grating noise now and again when under braking/engine braking. I have checked the wheel over, turning it by hand while the bike is on the main stand but cannot find any problems. This has only...

    Hi As mentioned a while back I fitted the Remus Titanium GP to my F650 CS - although I am delighted with the sound I am a bit concerned at the amount of misfiring sounds I am hearing at low revs. What I wanted to know is whetehrr or not this is meant to happen - and if it is a sign that there...
