Hello lovely people,
I previously had a F650 Funduro and no issues with the seat. When I moved eventually to a 800GSA I felt much more comfortable with a low seat.... the width of the seat was as much of an issue as the height strangely. Well now I'm looking to buy a G650 Sertao and thinking...
I got a 99 F650 a few months ago for some back-road exploring, love it! Had the seat off once to check everything. This time I went to remove it and the latch isn't being released by the lock, in fact now after some WD40 the entire lock body just turns with the key. A quick internet search...
Just a bit of a rundown of what I've had to do to my Dakar - I'm a short guy, so it was a touch high for me.
I took the seat to an upholsterer near me, and they scooped out a bunch of foam and put new fabric on (new fabric wasn't part of the original quote but he didn't charge me...
I've just been reminded by another member that I could post a heads-up for a few bits I've just put on ebay. I acquired these for my F650GS [single] but then I sold it before even having a chance to use them. [And they don't fit the F800].
Rear brake disk...
I have been running a 2002 f650gs for my bi daily commute from Scarborough to scunthorpe. It makes going to work a pleasure, but not for my rear end. Does any one know if the 1998 funduro seat will fit a 2002 gs. I fancied experimenting with an old seat to try and make my ride a little more...
I've hurt my sacrium at soft play with my son down a slide. It's very painful to ride currently, and since a bike is my only form of transport, I'll have to borrow the misses car for the rest of the week.
Does anyone know of any added seat that be strapped on to assist with saw sacrum / coccyx...
I have a standard seat on my 03 GS, I believe this fits all GS and Dakars of the spark variety.
Would like to see if anybody got the raised seat (standard on the dakar) and would like to swap for this one?).
Finally got my self a lovely 03 Dakar, and i'm cuffed!
Only problem is its a little tall, i'm 5,8 and in full winter gear its a bit tricky.
I have seen Touratech does a lower seat which is 3cm lower then the origonal. but its £396 is it worth it? or does anyone have a low seat...
As the title says, a brand new special order Wunderlich high seat. Fitted to my F650GS twin spark 04 which has now been sold to a friend who is not as long in the leg as me.
Cost £300 6 weeks ago, asking £200 posted to UK mainland.
Paypal gift preferred :D
please email me directly at...
I would like a centre stand for my '04 CS
One discussion is which centre stand - and I have read all the posts, concluding that "you pay your money and take your choice. There are as many for a given brand as against.
A second issue is whether a lowered seat on an F650CS imposes any...
I have noticed a few threads about seats, and how hard they are to get. I noticed this on ebay and thought I would post it.
I have posted it in chatter to let people know about it, the seat is not mine and I am not sure if it will fit any other model...
The title says it all really. I have a BMW lowered seat on my 08 F650GS twin. Uncomfortable as hell after 30 minutes. Looking to hear back from any members that have after market seats (if lowered, even better).
anyone know where I can get me seat recovered? it is an horrendous colour of purple (despite what jimi and the little feller with the stupid name sang) and has got to go.
I'm in Cannock and would like somwhere reasonably local....
OR, has anyone a black seat they'd like to swap for...
I've a 1999 F650st in lovely nick, but the seat is the most disgusting shade of purple.
Has anyone a black one gathering dust in the shed that they'd sell me please? Unless of course some mad feckless idiot would like to swap me a black one for this lovely trendy, cool purple one?:D
