    Dear all, Having experienced puking petrol on my 1998 F650 ST, and luckily having found the explanation in this forum by googling it, I'd like to add another dimension, which I didn't see mentioned: carburettor overflow (puking petrol) doesn't just let gasoline out via the air intake box, but...

It turns over fine but will not start, it doesent even try to fire. I have had to turn the petrol tap...

    When I had a Transalp :roll: it was easy to fill my petrol stove from the bike by disconnecting the fuel line at the fuel tap. Can't do this on the Beemer (GS 04 Twin Spark), so I was wondering if there s an easy way to do it avoiding carrying a bottle, getting a mouthful of fumes, or wasting...

    Hi all - smell of petrol outside the house when I got home tonight (Funduro has been parked as I'm a cyclist at the moment, though I rode it in to work yesterday and filled the tank). The smell got worse later, and examining the bike by torchlight, there's petrol dripping out of a tube on the...

    After owning my ST for a couple of years now, I went to the petrol station the other day to inflate my tyres for the first time (first time at a petrol station that is). Is it just me or is the typical pump connection you get at a petrol station impossible to get onto the valve on the rear wheel...

    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...

    For any of you guys traveling to Spain I have attached a useful website with current prices of petrol http://www.elpreciodelagasolina.com/. Seems that it is still quite a bit cheaper here to fill up although that could change. Our major problem is lack of water at the moment although the...

    I've had my F650GS about 6 months now, and I finally got around to fitting some knobblies at the weekend and took it offroad . I came off a few times with no damage, other than my rear brake pedal, that got bent back over the footpeg, the way it was bent made it look like it was made from rubber...

    Bought a F650 Funduro about 6 weeks ago Whilst out riding i can smell petrol nearly all the time , i have changed the air filter as it was very dirty, and this has improved the response at low revs , but the petrol smell is still there I have run my hands all around the area below the carbs when...

    Hi, tonight, after filling up with petrol, my 53 plate GS was leaking petrol from the breather. I replaced the shock absorber at the weekend, where the whole back end is lifted up, and this was the first time I've opened up the filler cap. Could it just be syphoning. The leak stopped within a...

    Filled up with petrol last night, did about 5 miles when the bike lost power and then stopped, just as though there was no fuel. Switched to reserve and she started up OK but now won't run if the tap is switched to normal (and no, it hasn't lost all the fuel, the tank is still full) I assume...

    Hi Everybody: Today I was on the A3 and my bike started to splutt and died, luckily I was able to change to line and stoped. I tried to turn it on again but nothing happen, so I decided to check the fuel line and the external filter. The filter look with petrol and fine, when I removed it...

    Hello kind people. Does anyone know the answer to this problem Between the carbs on my bike (1995 F6650 funduro) there is a brass pipe connecting the carbs, after a run when the bike has cooled the lower joint between the brass pipe and the carb body leaks petrol. The only way to prevent it is...
