    Hi, I recently brought (yeah, I know they are an expensive lot TT) two sets of crashbars for my bike and for my girlfriend's bike. The left hand lower engine crashbar runs around the outside of the clutch casing. When you come to change gear, you find you can't, because the crashbar pushes your...

    My 97 F650ST has been intermittently cutting out and then no electrics at all. It turned out to be a broken wire (Yes, I have seen the entries on the Chain Gang FAQs about this problem ) It was broken right where it enters the ignition switch. I've removed the switch and attempted to resolder...

    Last night I filled the tank on my 94 Fundie, only covered 18 miles since then. I left the bike on the side stand overnight, with the fuel tap in the on position(as usual). This morning, there was a small pool of petrol on the garage floor and a fairly regular drip of petrol coming from the near...

    My beloved Dakar has developed a very annoying fault. First goes in fine but, when in second, as soon as I open up to get any serios speed, the whole bike shudders as soon as I pass 3500rpm. the feeling is very similar to blipping the clutch. I am thinking this is a gearing problem as it only...

    When out riding today, the rear brake pedal started to travel further that usual. Not long after, a 'clunk' could be felt about half way through its travel. After parking up for a couple of hours, I went to check over the rear brake and found that it had completely stopped working and the stop...

    My hubby test drove my bike this morning after we had finished the head stock bearings, but came home with unhappy face. I test drove it and the bike felt as it always had from buying it. He recons it goes round corners with a mind of its own, he recons he has to fight the steering when going...

    Hi there, There's something not quite right with the electrics on my F650 Funduro 96 :scratch: Basically, the headlight doesn't come on unless I put on the highbeam.. which doesn't make me the most popular rider on the road! The dipped head does work after about 15mins of riding though. Even...

    Hi all! Haven't posted in a while but thought I would throw this one out. I have a 650GS '04 model. Only 6500 miles on the clock. It runs fine but I can't help but feel there might be something wrong. The sound of the engine, to my ears, seems to have a rough scraping sound to it. There is...

I had to 'shave' off some rubber and apply loads of vaseline to get the two to fir well enough together in order to fir the bracket back on. Anyone else had this problem or is...

    I have seen a lot of posts where riders experience the rear brake being OK when cold but coming on after about ten miles, and even catching on fire. I recently had the same problem, but as I had just renewed my rear disk and pads I thought / hoped it would go away. It didn't. I spent about 2...

    Well, I've searched the chaingang FAQ's and the forums here, but I haven't found my answer. My bike is overheating and running very warm - the needle is now always over the halfway mark, and when I slow down or stop, it's on the red before you can say "tickety boo" It feels to me like a...
