    Hi everybody I have F650 1994 with only 7k. Thing is that I can get only 150 miles with full tank and when it runs there is always a smell of unburned fuel. I am going to adjust the float level. Clymer and f650.com say it should be 14.6 mm but it is for 1997-99 bike with 132 jet. Mine has 140...

    Hi, I was after some advice re my normally perfect running bike now misbehaving. I did my usual 120 mile round trip for work last week and got back to the office at 3pm. I left at 5.30 to drive home and although the bike started ok, it didn't run well. It was ok when accelerating, but when...

    Went out to my CS after it had been left for about 3 weeks and it wouldn't start/flat battery. Put it on charge and it did eventually start. It was very slow on turning over and then would fire up. A few times the ABS light would stay on until revs got to about 3000 and the indicators would...

    Hi Folks, Can anyone help me with this one? The bike started running really rough (surging), using lots of petrol and taking a long time to drop the revs when the throttle was closed (no problem with the response when opening the throttle) I've just had the carbs off and cleaned them out to...

    A few weeks ago after the bike had been parked up for a while, I noticed the rear brake had seized. I freed it up giving it a good clean and grease. However its performance was very poor and there appeared alot of travel before the brake came info effect. Again I removed the caliper cleaned it...

    Hi all. I have a 97 F650 Funduro with 14000 miles - it's lowered, ie side & centre stand to suit (unsure what else would have been done to get it lower) - that's how it was when I got it so unsure if it came like that from BMW or someone has done the convesion. Anyway, the suspension is set to...

    My friends 96 Funduro has been running very poorly since he purchased it last year. The symptoms were surging, cutting our frequently and difficult to start He changed the plugs to no avail. Some people suggested cleaning out the carbs. Anyway he spoke to Jim Cray at Sittingbourne who said it...

    Over the past week I have noticed a sudden weakness in the performance of the front brake. I not have to apply about twice as much force to get the same amount of brake power. The pads are fine any ideas????????? SHOTROCK :riding:

    Right, now before you tell me off, I've used the search facility and don't see anything that covers this subject, at least not with the following symptoms. As you will have gathered I have a starting problem. :roll: F650GS 54' 3,400miles Up to November last year all was well. Then without...

    Today I started the CS after having left it for just over a week. Not that that should be a problem. It turned over quick enough, but didn't start. I tried it twice, cranking for only a few seconds, maybe 5 secs each, then I just caught a glimpse in the corner of my eye of activity in the...

    Went out this morning and tried to start my F650 but it didn't want to start. eventually started using the choke, which is unusual as it has always started without choke, but it coughed spluttered and kept conking out. I haven't used the bike for a week but it's been covered and in nice warm...

    I have recently been finding it difficult to start my bike (early mornings 05:30 neighbours love me..not) the procedure I follow is no throttle, ignition on then wait for all lights to extinguish then press the starter for a couple of seconds, this is normally enough to fire it up. When the...

    Hello I am a bit concerned about the fuel consumption on my 2003 Dakar. I have only had it for a few weeks and I use it mainly for a traffic filled commute, and hardly any over 30 mph areas. I rode 110 miles from full to warning light. Does this seem a little low, or is it to be expected with...

    Does anyone else suffer from this annoying jerkiness at the rev range above, I have taken the bike back to the dealership and they claim it is the BMW injection system and the bike is fine, however I think it is unsatisfactory and wondered if anyone else suffered the sam problem Regards Jon...

    My bike runs well once going however is difficult to start when warm. It often refuses to start by touching the button with no throttle as indicated in the handbook. If you give it a little throttle it will eventually run, often with an initial lumpy start and black smoke from the back. You need...

    For some reason my 650ST has decided it does not like starting on the choke. It starts ok without, but then needs a little bit to keep it ticking over. It otherwise seems to run alright once it has warmed up. I'm going to check the plugs, but can anyone suggest what else I could look at...
