  1. G650GS Discussion
    Can someone please advise me on what the paint code for the frame work of a G650GS would be. (The black). Or what would be a good paint to cover up a small nick in the paint work, about the size of a small finger nail. Unfortunately the bare metal has been exposed and I don't want any rust...

    :confused:I am interested where I can get this silver paint or a similar available silver close to the shade. Halfrauds cant find such a code although I have been researching the complicated paint issue of funduros on google...the paint code on my bike frame tells me it should be red!:scratch:

    Trying to locate paint for my 95 f650. It is flame red and the paint code is 695. Does anyone know if this paint is exclusive to BMW as there are a lot of other bikes and cars out there in flame red? For example Vauxhall and Rover. There's a thought. Since BMW owned Rover, would their flame...

    I've just aquired a 2nd hand clutch and waterpump cover to replace my badly pealing ones. As i find myself with spares i would like to refinish them as i know eventually the replacments will start to go. I like the thought of having them powder coated, possibly having the right side covers done...

    OK after a wet week commuting around Mancheseter, dispite its stumbling to a stall on tickover a couple of times(??), it deserved a wash. Now it looks ]like it also deserves a bit more TLC. I am removing odd bits like the rear peg mounts to repaint. Anybody got a recommendation on colour for...

    Hi again :) Wondered if anyone knows what the (rough) cost would be to have a bike repainted? Just the mudguard, tank and tail. A simple black or grey, nothing flashy. And where would you recommend? It's for either an F650GS or a CS. The reason is, I've seen some bikes in great condition but...

    Hi guys, I'm giving my workhorse it's spring clean this week and I wanted to know if any body has any ideas about sorting out the paint flaking off my engine. Can it be fixed or do I have to live with it, the bike is a 2001 model. Cheers chaps and chapesses :doh:

    Hi All, Back to the thorny question of paint for touching up the F650GS/Dakar engine. I have ascertained that BMW do not supply this paint, I have, however sourced a supplier of the correct colour. It may be obtained from R S Motorbike Paint www.motorbikepaint.co.uk The paint consists of...

    I've just bought an 04 dakar and its one main blemish is the pealing engine paint. What can i do? Is touch up paint available?

    Hi All It looks like I managed to overfill my '96 Funduro at the weekend. Left it on the side stand as I went to pay/have a coffee. On returning to the bike it looked like streaks of petrol down the frame below seat to left side foot peg, I grabbed a towel to wipe the excess off and the frame...

    Know some have covered this before, but little more advice needed. Anyone know what is the correct colour / type of paint to touch up the engine block, have cs with light grey block (all the same colour?) Flaking badly now. Any more suggestions?

    Stripped my bike down for the side covers to go for re coating, and starting to do the touch ups on the rest of the engine. I got the hammerite smooth silver like people suggested. But after I did a small test patch its not even a close match for the main block of the engine! Seems the engine...

    While removing the rear axle I got careless and ended up with two small scratches on the end of the swinging arm .caused by the chain slipping. No problem I thought ... Went into our local dealer thinking I could obtain a touch-up stick [ bike is colour 925 silver] only to discover that BMW...

    All to do with taste, but I don't half like the textured finish on the lower fairing panels on my F650. So, when I chucked it up the street because I knew the chain needed sorting but thought I'd get away with one last ride, I laid it up and did some experimenting. Black, crinkle-finish...
