  1. G650GS Discussion
    I was extremly happy with the handling and balance of the bike but doing some checks noticed that both tyres were down on pressure by about 5psi from the recommended 32psi and 36 psi (2.2bar, 2.5bar) as in the handbook. Having corrected both pressures the front end now seems 'a bit too lively'...

    This last weekend I treated the GS to a new plug, (hah that access is fun!!!) and played with routing of the throttle cable as I have always had far too much slack, but thats another problem. I also cleaned the bike using a hosepipe. Going to work on Monday no problems, in fact bike was...

    Have had a red oil pressure light flashing at me last weekend while out and about on my GS, I knew that the Oil Pressure Sensor was an issue with these 650 engines from previously reading the Forum. Accordingly, I contacted one of the spares suppliers by email and wrote that I had an 07 F650GS...

    Hi folks :wave: I`m about to put a couple of Anakee 2 tyres on in a few days. Thing is i`ve searched Michelin site for a guide to what pressure they could recommend :puzzled:. Couldn`t find anything really. :think: Does anyone run these hoops on a Dakar? Thanks in advance Dakarnoway.

    Have some avon roadriders on my Funduro any tips for tyre pressure? Does 27 front 28.5 back seem the right place to start?

    I`m not too worried :roll: that I can get my Dakar back on the road before next Friday, only i`m off to Ireland on Saturday. :whistle: Refitting my rear shock last week after it has had a rebuild. I went for a ride just to check everything is OK! I set off with an oil light as you would...

    Hello, I've got the oil light flickering on and off and like other posts on here, there appears to be nothing wrong. Before I take it to be checked I'd like to have a go at spraying the oil pressure switch!..... but where is it? :? Thanks very much

    ...this weekend just gone. The light stopped working a long, long time ago after coming on for no reason, glowing occasionally and generally being weird and untrustworthy, so I just ignored it (not a very clever thing to do, but hey ho). Recently it's started leaking oil which has got...

    I purchased a new F650 GS in January, in the last three months I have had six new oil pressure switches fitted. Has anyone else had this problem? :?

    My oil pressure switch has failed and according to BMW there is an updated switch fitted due to problems with the existing ones. Has any one had this updated 'repair' fitted to their bike?

    On the metz site it says 26psi front and 36psi rear!...Is anyone else running these pressures as they seem incorrect. The front seems a very low pressure and the rear too hard!

     Hi, Guys What a great website! Didn?t answer all my questions so I thought I?d run them past you? Background, I brought my first bike in October last year, a really lovely f650 Fundura. I?ve been planning to do a reasonably thorough service and inspection and have had a go at it this...

    Finally got round to fitting my new TKC80's. Went off for a ride to scrub them in, came back rather quick to check the tyre pressures. They understeer in corners and the front end is very twichly. Off road they are fantastic, had a go though a long muddy puddle, loads of fun! But I'd read that...

    Hi y'all. I'm now the v v proud owner of an oldish but fine example of a 1994 vintage f650 - comfier than my old VFR, less risky than my gsxr6 and more fun than my honda 90 (not hard)...Anyways I'm getting a problem with the oil pressure light flickering at idle once the engine is warm. I've had...
