    I'm not interested in speed, I rarely take it past 80mph. However, I would be interested in tweaking the response/acceleration. I have read quite a bit on the chain gang and here on various performance mods with varied feedback. I have also read that the setup is already good and you can't get...

    Dear all, I own a 2007 BMW F650GS - so we know what bike we're talking about. It's got about 3k miles on it, of which I've done about 1k since January. When I first purchased the bike I was most impressed by the braking performance, compared to my old Kawasaki ER5. I now find that I have to...

    Morning all. A few friends and I are riding down to Tuscany through the alps in the summer, the first day being a 600 mile marathon from hertfordshire to Neuchatel in Switzerland. I'm looking for ways to increase the top speed of my trusty dakar as the other three all have rather quicker bikes...

    Just for info - I've fitted the above silencer (from Motorworks £170). After the initial shock of how unbelievably loud it is I also fitted one of those universal type dB killers from the local custom bike suppliers - it's now nice and loud as opposed to disgustingly loud. Anyway, to the point -...

    Good afternoon, Ladies And Genteel men. I now present to you the most wonderful cure for ailing (indeed, all) BMW F650 motorcycles: 1) Pull off your spark plug cap or caps if you have several. 2) Rip the b...... stupid metal caps orfff the flipping plug caps and thow them as far as you...

    My new Remus titanium exhaust has changed the performance of the bike substantially. It has a fraction more top end, above 4,000 it revs a bit easier and pulls better on the motorway. It has compromised the bottom end slightly though, take off from lights isn't as crisp meaning it has to be...

    I am a new owner of an F650CS and although I am very pleased with the handling, size/seat height, confort and fuel consumption I would like a little more from the performance. (I have just sold my Fireblade because of wrist problems - so it is rather unfair to compare the two bikes). Anyway...

    Das Motorrad have posted performance data and acceleration figures for the F650 - admittedly in CS guise, but useful for "bar room " chatter as we don't often get 'car-oriented' 0-60 times. It is also a useful comparison of single and twin-spark performance. 0-62 4.2s - monospark 4.6s -...
