    I have purchased some second hand BMW City panniers, however there are no keys since they were matched to the previous owners bike. So, is it possible to remove the locks without the keys - I know motorworks sell replacement locks, or will I have to replace the catches as well? The only details...

    I wonder if anyone can help me with a problem I have with my 1999 F650ST? I am unable to insert the key into the ignition switch/lock.

    The alu panniers on my GS have had their first scratch and dent due to them being hit by a stationary car's bumber :whistle: I don't think the dent will be noticable if I can remove the black stuff - anyone got any ideas on how to do this. I've been told T-Cut (sp?) might do this but leave...

    Hi, I've recently purchased my first F650 and as usual I like to check and grease most parts.
