    I had a problem with my biek this morning and can't find anything on the forum about it but am hoping its something easy I can fix before I ride home this afternoon!!! I filled the bike up with fuel and then got on the motorway into London. Everytime it went over 4000 revs it acted like it was...

    whilst coming back up from the Lakes over the A7 we encountered some really heavy downpours and loads of standing water firstly the low fuel warning light came on when only needing 6 litres then just after crossing the Forth Bridge in a gale (not for the faint hearted) another heavy cloudburst...

    Ok. Here's one that's got me thinking. (See my other post 'Annoying Rattle' for full details.) Say you are cruising in a 30 zone. What gear would you be in and at what revs? Say you are crusing in a 40 zone. What gear would you be in and at what revs? As you are coming out of either zone. Do you...

    i know this got touched on in the "comfortable cruising speed" thread but i'd like to know what the maximum revs are that i can travel long distances at. i'm not talking the occasional red lining away from a roundabout or whatever. but if i'm on the motorway for 3 hours say, provided the bike is...

    Hi Folks, this is my virgin post to the forum so I hope I am posting in the correct place. I have been through the FAQ's on the Chain Gang regarding misbehaving tachometers but it appears most of the posts relate to tacho's that register revs under what the bike is doing. I have a 2006 F650GS...

    As part of an ongoing 'discussion' with my dealer just wondered if anyone could shed some light... In the manual it states after 600 miles the bike can be taken to 7 thou revs, not held there but definately taken there, According to dealer until it has 2 thousand miles i cant go above 6...

I've been having various issues getting my F650 2001 model started lately and have finely managed to get it going yesterday after getting a 2nd hand starter motor and relay from MotorWorks.

    I have had a new clutch fitted on my '99 ST and I am sure it is a bit more viby at between 4 and 5k . the bike is running fine so it may be my imagination but I did wonder if a replacment clutch could introduce vibration if not fitted correctly, although it was fitted by my BMW dealer. Any one...

    Hi Guys New GS Dakar member here, on a recent run, i notced that above 6000 rpm the clutch tends to slip a little, it has been suggested that the oil might be at fault. I cannot replicate the slip by holding brake on and letting clutch out at rest, the clutch does its job and the...

    Hi. I've just started riding after passing my test this summer and have been really happy with my '04 plate scarver :-D . Until this morning that is, when, on my way to work through the bristol traffic, the bike kept cutting out when the revs dropped below 2000 revs. This meant i had to give...

    Does anyone else suffer from this annoying jerkiness at the rev range above, I have taken the bike back to the dealership and they claim it is the BMW injection system and the bike is fine, however I think it is unsatisfactory and wondered if anyone else suffered the sam problem Regards Jon...

    Hi all, New to the F650 as of last week and already looking for help... I've got a '95 Carbed model which runs smooth when idling or accelerating but when holding the throttle at about 2500 3000, going round a roundabout for example, it tends to start missing beats and getting a bit rough! Drop...

    I know that the CS puts out 400w but how many rpm are required to get those watts? Whilst I'm here anyone know how many watts the heated grips and injector/ignition systems use? Cheers Tony.
