    Hi everyone. Can anyone recommend somewhere I can order new dog bones to raise the rear end a bit? 15/20mm dog bones should do it. Thanks :-)

    Hi All, I have just sent my rear caliper off to a chap in Rossendale, who has charged £45 including return postage to service and reseal the caliper. Will post an update when it comes back but thought it could be worth mentioning as the caliper is supposed to be non servicable...

    my rear brake was seized on last weekend, I have managed to free it with WD40 and pushed it into the calliper but I now no longer have any pressure at the brake peddle. The brake fluid level in the reservoir is higher than it was - I don't understand how I could have lost pressure in the...

    Help! Just replaced rear pads, rear brake line (new goodridge braided hose) added a new rear master cylinder and could not get it all to work - pressure was non existant - so took rear wheel off again and started afresh. Now it would appear that the rear calliper is slightly misaligned and I...

    Hi all, On my 2004 F650 GS the rear light/brake light, which incidentally is LED, works fine when the ignition is on, but flickers when the engine is running. I dont think i have a problem with the bike as i connected the old std lamp and all works OK. My knowledge of LED lights is limited, i...

    I have posted the message bellow in the sales section of the forum but I just wanted to know if this has happened to anyone else? Hi all, I was on my way home last night when I heard a horrible noise, looked back and realised the cover for the rear rack/luggage support whatever you want to...

    I am puzzled, the rear brake light on my 96 Funduro has stopped working on the foot brake. I have searched for the rear brake light switch as stated on the Clymer manual and cant find it. Is there a peculiar difference in some models or has anyone any tips, thanks

    :scratch:06 650 gs, 25k km After a long ride city ride my rear brake felt spongy and very little stopping force. I could push the brake leaver right down to little effect. On checking, the brake disk and calipers were very hot. On a normal commute, about 25 km, this is not a problem. Checked:-...

    Hi All, Reasonably new to this model and wondered if anyone had taken out the rear shocker and can advise on the difficultly (pain in the arse factor) involved? The reason I ask is that I would like to remove the shock and cover with an old inner tube or similar then zip tie it up to protect...

Seems similar with external resevoir, Am I right that Funduro was predecessor to GS/Dakar? and extra...
