The first time I noticed this was after a 2500 mile trip abroad, when one bolt fell out. The bike had it's 12000 mile service prior to the trip...

    Not sure if I'm being stupid here - but there's a message in my outbox which hasn't sent itself. Am I supposed to click on something to send it? I don't think I've had to before :think:

    Are there any technophobes out there? After a ride out today I put the bike onto the centre stand and left the engine running. Walking round the rear and purely by accident, I noticed that the right hand silencer was 'exhausting' while the left one was not. Why is this? Anybody have the...

    Hi Met a guy at the lights today near Stockwell - who was on the exact same bike - same colour (Silver) and had a quick chat at the lights - as it is not every day you pull up next to another Scarver at the lights let alone one the same colour. He mentioned that through town he got 80mpg which...

    A friend of mine said he saw a F650ST on a 51 plate for sale in his local paper. I thought the last year of manufacture was 2000. I was thinking maybe it was a 2000 production bike but was not registered until late 2001. But that would mean it was hanging around in some showroom for ages. Or am...

    Hi, I have an '01 GS with twin exhaust ports - I believe one is 'real' (the near side - LHS) one is not (the offside or RHS). How much pressure should I feel comming out of the 'fake' side the RHS. Coz at the moment its more that what comes out the 'real side'. Does this make sense?? Cheers

    Hi folks, I'm a proud owner of a silver 2003 F650GS. Just wondered if anyone has the Givi luggage system, top box and panniers. I'd like an idea what they look like and would be thankful if anyone could email me a pic showing what they look like. Also I must add what a great and friendly forum...

    It's time to replace at least my front sprocket. The one on there is either rubber coated or even made partly of rubber ( a cushioning device ? ) So do I need to replace with a similar one or can I use anything that is made for the F650 ? Thank you.
