    Hi, I am looking for any users who might have some ideas as to where I might be able to get another pair of plastic tanks bars, plus the other parts near the headlight too, sas they are all cracked and would bring the bike back to life with new ones? I have done a little research into having a...

    I got in the car this morning and glanced at my bike when reversing out and saw that some c**t has stolen one of the two little plastic bits that connects onto the petrol tank of my 650gs. :wall: I wouldn't mind but they did a crap job of taking it off with screwdriver and scored the plastic...

    Hi All. I have recently bought a 2000 GS and I have seen on pics that it originally had this plastic "fender" over the rear tyre. (see pic) However, some previous owner has chosen to take it off. As I very much like the design with it ON, I would like if one of you could help me find such a...

    Hi All. I have a set of BMW plastic panniers and the mountings that sit on the bar have broken away. I am going to get the hooks remade in metal but am wondering if this will be a waste of time/money. I am planning on doing some overlanding next spring and don't want them to fall apart or OFF...

    On the Rotax 650 BMW's (are they all rotax?) on the RHS there should be two plastic screws about 20mm diameter that can easily be removed - what is the upper one for? I ask because I'm trying to get more information on the spark timing of my Aprilia Pegaso which shares the engine but I cannot...

    Bought my 2004 F650 GS about 3 months ago; its in general top condition apart from deepish scratches on the headlamp cowl and front 'beak' mudguard. These are beginning to niggle me. Any bright suggestions for attempting to 'polish these out'. My guess is that new replacements are likely to be...

    My tank is looking a bit scuffed from having had the Touratech tank bag on it earlier in the year - I've found a fix to stop the scuffing (non slip mat under the bag) - but does anyone have any tips for getting the paintwork back to its original glossy shine??? I want my Dakar all shiny again...

    Hi all I have a problem with my 2000 GS on the transparencies (Speedo + rev tack). :-( I went to BMW to pick up the bike after a service and found that the transparencies had been broken. They seemed to be stressed as I could see a rainbow effect in the plastic but the top has not...

    Hi all - the plastic lens (?) over my idiot lights has been cracked for ages, but with the cold lately it's really started to go downhill. Is it a replaceable item do you know? It seems daft to have to replace the whole fascia for 3cm square of plastic... - Jim

    I saw this post on the UKGSER's forum and thought I'd repost it here, just in case there are any collectors of plastic models of F650 bikes amongst you. (I'm guilty - I've got four sat on top of my monitor) :oops: Coming to Lidl in Ireland next week are miniature car and bike sets. One of...

    I'm restoring a neglected '94 F650, which has been outside for ages. Even after a clean, it is very dull & streaky. Any suggestions anyone? Thanks.

    What is the black plastic thing over the back wheel for? Is it anything more than something to make from recycled Donny Osmond records? Exporting surplus German Trabant Dashboards?:dunno: Is there any valid reason why I should not remove it and launch it off the nearest cliff top? It's a load...
