    While touring on island of Islay the chain for my 2000 Funduro broke. Managed to get it home and now decided to get new chain and sprockets. Would appreciate any recommendations and advice.

    Hi gang, I know this is a pinfully daft question.... but I'm after a cheap supplier of bar risers that will work on Rosie the Scarver. After dropping her on the ice last year, and the year before Pidcocks KNACKERING up my heated grips in a repair and refusing to take any responsibility, I...

    I have a 2002 F650GS and being brutally honest my bottom and the seat are not the best of friends and anything around a couple of hours, it's uncomfortable. It's been pointed out to me that I have the lower seat although I always thought I had the higher one so question one - can anyone point me...

    Heya guys! Just bought myself a Garmin Quest with motorcycle cradle and want to get it all connected ASAP for a trip to Europe in two weeks. Can anyone recommend a good Mount for this cradle? It's described as having a standard AMPS hole pattern. Would prefer one where the cradle can be...

    I'm thinking of getting a workramp / lift thing. I need one that folds flat and can be stored upright against a wall. Does anybody have any suggestions, what type have you got? Where's the best place to buy?

    Hello, newby here.. just taken delivery of a 2000 Dakar and plan to ride to the South of France where I will be staying for about a month. I have been out of motorcycling for a number of years and have lost touch with what helmet to buy, which are your favorites or any general advise would be...

    :howdy: My girlfriend and I are getting excited about the idea of doing some long weekends away next year and I'm need of some advice. I have an oxford sports tailpack which is excellent, but with a Pillion I can't imagine fitting it to the Rack securely. I've got the little tank bag that...

    I'd really like to keep riding as much of the year as I can on my commute to work (14 miles of mostly country lanes). My girlfriend's offering a bike related birthday present, being a sensible BM owner I thought I might plan ahead for the cold and darkness :riding: . I'm pretty skeptical of...

    I need a new chain for my 2000 Dakar due to stiff links and stretching, the sprockets are fine. There are so many to choose from at all prices. I ride all year round, road only. I want a soft link for ease of fitment. Value for money in mind any recommendations for manufacturers and suppliers ?

    Hi chaps and chapesses, Just back from a couple of months abroad and my '04 Dakar fired up at 1st attempt (HOORAY), although a battery conditioner probably helped. I have also come back to find that the BMW Insured Emergency Service cover I got with the bike has expired. It is ?130 to renew...

    Hello folks, Could anyone recommend a good replacement screen for a 1998 F650 ? There is a GIVI one but there seems to be a bit of confusion, the dealers think it for a F650ST. I had a look at it and it seems it goes lower down past the head light whereas my bike screen starts above the...

    Would it be possible to have an addition to this excellent webiste for good, bad or indifferent services, like helpful garages or mean insurance companies etc? :shock: I saw something like this a couple of years back on a different forum where people gave their opinion or told their good/bad...

    Hi Has anyone got any recommendations for pannier inner bags for my BMW panniers (F650 GS)? I've looked at some on the Mane Event site - are they any good? :think:

    Just moved to a new house, without a garage - :-( So, I need to get a cover for my 94 F650 (old style). What do you people recommend? A BMW specific one, or a generic one (like Oxford). Thanks :mrgreen:

    Hi Guys / Ladies, I was wondering how many people are using scottoilers or loobman or the oul can of chain lube /wax? Also do users of automatic systems feel they are worth the money in the inital purchase vs longer chain life? And finally if anyone has used the loobman could they give some...

    Morning chaps (and Chapesses), I know I could go the the UKGSers site to check this, however I'd appreciate some direction from my F650 friends. I'm in the early stages of contemplating fitting a GPS system to my R1200GS and would like to hear any do's. don't's, must have thoughts from the...

    Now before you say it, this isn't a thinly veiled 'buy, sell, swop' forum post! I urgently need to get hold of a set of pannier rails for an '01 f650 FL, and am loath to pay the ?100-plus that they will cost new. Do any of you know a good second-hand spares dealer, or a breakers yard that...
