Hello chaps n chapettes,
A jolly nice passing vandal attempted to "hot wire" my 2007 f650GS (single) by cutting the cable going to the ignition switch. Obviously after that the bike would not start (for me or the vandal).
I bought a replacement cable and fitted it myself, as it seemed a...

Can anyone help? I have been waiting for two weeks today for these parts from Motorworks, they are out of stock, and the last reply from them is BMW in germany seem to be out of stock, so I am stuck, I have been working on the front...
I just have a wee question to run by everyone. How would go about repairing a broken front fairing and the engine guard fairing of a '95 Funduro.
Had a wee bit of an accident and broke these bits. Mind you, I also bent the brake pedal, but that's easily replaced.
Looking for a...
I snapped off one of the lugs on the LH pannier last week, I tried repair etc but as this is second attempt I decided to bite the bullet and order and new rear moulded panel from BMW.
Has anyone any experience of disassembling the vario panniers and anything to look out for??
The original engine in my bike took out the G/Box O/P bearing. I put a new engine in, mainly because it was quicker than waiting for the original to be rebuilt. Now it comes to fixing the original engine I'm reminded yet again that engines aren't really worth rebuilding.
I've already got the...

My bike needs the carbs rebuilt. He said the carbs are flooding the engine, causing gas to flow past the rings into the oil, which is filling with gas, of course.
The charcoal filter for emissions is missing (I have heard this is no big deal) and the bike used to have an after market exhaust)...
I have had a quick look on the Chain Gang about repairing a rad with various epoxy resins type materials and the concensus is not very good, does anyone know of a failsafe repair or should I fork out ?118.00 and fit a new one or pay BMW ?75.00 on top of the price of the rad to fit it?
Can anyone help. My F650 seat has a small tear and would like to get the seat recovered. Can anyone suggest someone who might be able to do this. Or has anyone got a spare seat they may be willing to sell if in good condition.
Anyone got some advice for me?
My F650 gets a bit rattly if I don't use it for a while, during initial start up. The problem goes after a second or so, (sounds like big end to me).
Is it an easy job to replace the big end bearing? or is it specialist specialist tooling and a real pain? I've...
I'm planning some longer rides this summer. My Boy Scout training tells me to 'Be Prepared', so I've been looking at the BMW tubeless puncture repair kit provided with my CS. The instructions look so nice in theory, don't they, but I need more reassurance.
So, back in the Real...
