    I have noticed that there is a trend with some bikers to ride with the headlamp on, nothing wrong with that, but there is also a few who ride with full beam on. Now with modern headlamps being brighter and having better lenses that is a dangerous way to go. Yes you may get noticed but you are...

    Has anyone any information about how to make the bike run smoother at low speeds, i.e. the bike gets to 3,000 revs and I change gear from 1st to 2nd and then again at 3,000 it wants to go from 2nd to 3rd and if I don't change gear at 3,000 revs the bike runs lumpy and I end up going faster in...

    Have had My 03 Dakar since January,. Always been a bit uneven when cruising at 3.5 - 4 thou , in town 30 - 40 mph etc. Seems a bit like it hesitates and then catches again. Had a full BMW 12thou service on wednesday, no difference... and today it's got worse, rough running, but still accelerated...

    Hi, I have just bought a 1996 Funduro F650 which has a running problem: Please bear with me as it takes a while to explain: When cold it will start but you need to hold the throttle to keep the revs around 2000 rpm until the bike gets warm or it will cut out and then struggles to restart -...

    Well, got the bike running, got it insured and im out at the moment but its not running right, like its misfiring? Does it matter what way round the HT leads go round? Was thinking of chucking in a bottle of fuel system/carb cleaner in? good idea or not? Many thanks as ever :)

    Hi all I'm new to this forum and have recently bought a '90 650 GS which doesn't seem to want to run properly now. It refused to start intermittently and was over revving so a friend with more technical knowledge than me had a look and diagnosed an electricl issue due to the fuel injector not...

    Hello Everyone, :wave: I have a 2001 (fuel-injected, single-spark) F650GS which has covered 22,000 miles which I bought second hand with less than 7,000 miles recorded. It always used to start very well from cold using the 'no throttle touching procedure'. Over the last few months it now...

    Hi, I was after some advice re my normally perfect running bike now misbehaving. I did my usual 120 mile round trip for work last week and got back to the office at 3pm. I left at 5.30 to drive home and although the bike started ok, it didn't run well. It was ok when accelerating, but when...

    Not sure if anyone else has seen these LED lights, but I bought a pair from BikeVis.com for 12 quid. I am well impressed. They are very small, I fitted them under the indicator blips on my Funduro. They put out 60 lums and only use 0.25amp. Wired straight to the sidelight. They give the bike a...

    hi all, I'm having a few problems with my machine, hopefully you can help :? it's running rough, feeling restricted at the top end. when I'm taking corners in 3rd or 4th then accelerating away, the engine loses power between 3 and 4 thousand revs and then comes back, over all acceleration is...

    Hi! I am thinking of fitting a set of daylight running lights to my ST to improve my visibility to others. I would like to use the 12v white led types. Has anyone done this? How and where have you fitted them? Cheers James 2001 F650ST

    Hello folks, new to forum, prospective F650 buyer to replace my Transalp, found a '97 F650 I am keen on but the test ride threw up some wobblies. Namely the rear brake caliper got stuck on and made the handling on roundabouts rather squirmy. Strangely the bike still went pretty quickly, much...

    I have recently replaced the battery on my Funduro, assuming the cold weather has finally killed it, but the new one is going the same way. When riding the engine sometimes stalls and the starter is sluggish or engine hard to turn over. Could this be a faulty starter or a charging problem and...

    Hello, I'm new here so hello everybody. I recently got a 1995 funduro, and had to fit a 25kW inlet manifold as I'm only 17. The problem may or may not be related to this though as i didn't ride the bike at all before the kit was fitted. Now the bike starts fine and runs very well when cold, it...

    I am a bit confused about the BMW advice to ride straightaway after starting. I know this has been debated at some length with no apparent resolution -which is OK as long as there are no problems. When I ride straightaway everything is OK unless I have to stop at lights or junctions within...

    Hi, My 'e-bay' 19" front wheel came off a 1995 bike. No issue, it slips right on, except not having a speedo drive, the wheel is left with a large 'hole' and the seal flaps in the wind.... Does this make the bearings more prone to wear by grit invasion and if so, is there anything I can do about...
