    Found a piece of metal on the driveway today lying under the rear brake! checked the bike over and the brake light is constantly on. Discovered that the metal bit is the bit from the brake switch that rests on top of the pedal! Got a replacement switch - but how do you get at it to get it...

    Bonjour, I've started using my funduro for trail riding as I have a new 800gs for the road and I want to start making some modifications to the funduro for better off road capabilities. Does anyone know what, if anything, is required to fit the 21" dakar wheel in place of the 19" standard...

    My oem heated grips are shot and replacing the handgrip parts is pretty expensive. When I looked into replacing them some time ago, my mechanic said there was a problem with putting on Oxford grips because of the sleeves (?) and the bar diameter So I am wonderding if there is some issue with...

    A great learning curve this bike is proving to be - or as a little voice at the back of my mind is saying "a bloody liability". I've spotted what I think is chain damage on some of the spokes, it looks like someone has taken a file to them - some with nearly half the spoke thickness gone. Of...

    I've just acquired a new (to me) top box, but the previous owner was unable to find the keys... No problem - I know that replacement locks can be had for about a tenner... But I assume that the usual replacement procedure would involve removal of the old lock using the old key. Does anybody...

    I am a bit stuck replacing the front fork seal. I am rebuilding the fork and have the inner and outer tubes reassembled. I have not yet put in the seals as that's where I am putting the oil in. I am pouring the oil along the inner sleeve and it is slowly filling. The problem is that I have...

    I replaced the front brake pads on my GS yesterday. However after putting it all back together, the brake lever, with some effort, could be pulled back to the grips. I cannot be sure if it was like this before I changed the brakes, but does not feel right. My initial thought was that they...

    Just thought I'd let you know. I'm a complete novice when it comes to mechanical things. After my Stella trip my pads needed changing back and front. When I bought the bike the chap threw in a new set of front and rear pads. It took me only 45 minutes to change them following the instruction...

    For anyone who has undetraken a replacement of the water pump, you will no doubt have come across the difficulty of removing/ man-handling the clutch cover past the oil return line. I found this difficult, perhaps there is another way. In any event, I am in the process of putting together a...

    After running over a duck at about 80MPH last night (don't ask!) my fork seals have blown [1]. Hopefully I can replace them myself, so I just wondered if anyone has got any good DIY tips to make the job easier on the Funduro? Thanks, Jon [1] I'm a bit of a fat-lad so I assume the force...

    I read a small artical in this week MCN. 'The Mole' artical on page 6 had a bit to say about the HP4 but also a one liner about the F650. I quote " An HP1, based on the F650 replacement is also on the cards"... any one read this or know more ? Woody

    I have had an F650ST for several months and like it very much, it is 5 years old and I would like something new. I just had a test ride on a CS and although the engine performance is the same I did not like the riding position as the bars seem too low and leaning forward compared to my ST. Also...
