    Hiya All, Having now owned my 04 plate F650 Dakar with 19k for just over a month I am wondering if the noises I hear should be there or some kind of problems with the engine, While riding the bike under load between roughly 2300ish-3000 rpm there a strange clunky / knock from the engine...

    My 01' ST has develloped a strange electric fault, she runs normally, as long as there is a load on the electrical system, ie : lights on. If all load is removed, she missfires about 50% (one every other "bang") If I tun a headlight on, she runs great, same when the cooling fand comes one, or if...

    Hi All, A couple of times recently, I've noticed that in traffic, when idling normally, the tacho is showing 3500-4000. When I then moved off, it shows the revs going even higher. I can hear that the engine is idling just over 1000rpm as normal. I have 'resolved' this both times by stopping...

    Hi.. Does anyone have any idea what's wrong with my 1998 ST? Some days I manage to start it OK and it will run for a short time and then it cuts dead. Then the neutral light won't come on again and it won't start. The solenoid by the battery doesn't click or anything, just the oil pressure light...

    Hi all. Friends 1993 F650's oil pressure light came on and stayed on today. Looked in the top oil tank (frame via the filler hole) - no oil visible. Bike hasn't burnt any oil (clean plugs) or lost any (no wet sump or overnight oil stains). Put a litre of oil in (oil visible, just), ran bike...

    Hello everyone, Ive just joined the site after lurking for a few weeks. I pased my test in January and got myself a shiney red bike and Im loving it so far. I have a 51 plate GS and I went to it today and started it and it fired up first time though stupidly I engaged first gear while the side...

    Afternoon all. I was riding the other day and heard a strange sound. It sounded as if a stone had hit the sump. I heard it again the next day but haven't heard it since. I'm pretty sure it was an internal sound, any ideas what it could be? By the way, my bike has a habit lately of not always...

    I'm getting a strange squealing noise, seems to be non-existent/inaudible in first and second. It goes away (or at least becomes so quiet I can't hear it) when I pull the clutch in and gets louder the harder I twist the throttle. It's quite hard to tell but I'm pretty sure it's louder on the...

    I wonder if anyone else has seen this sort of thing and can offer any pointers on how to fix it. After about 15-20 minutes of riding both the speedo and rev counter needles 'leap up' and then freeze. At the same time the milometer and clock displays change to just show a few random bars in some...

    A few days ago riding my 2003 F650 gs in town, 2nd short journey of the day, it just lost power about 5 times! I was able to start it up again immediately. I've ridden it a few times since and its only happened on one other occasion, again not the 1st journey of the day. there was no spluttering...

    Hi, I just got back from a 3000 mile trip on my TwinSpark Dakar. Had the bike for 6-7 weeks now and everything's fine. During the last 3000 miles holiday I had some fun & slow passages and some motorway ones at about 90mph. All good & reliable. It's just since 2 days ago (when I got back off a...

    Hi, has this happened to anyone with a CS. When I turn on the ignition, the clock digits change to an unreadable format, and then neither the speedo nor the rev counter work. I have to press on the reset button to get the clock back by which time the speedo and rev clocks will work...

    Last night I filled the tank on my 94 Fundie, only covered 18 miles since then. I left the bike on the side stand overnight, with the fuel tap in the on position(as usual). This morning, there was a small pool of petrol on the garage floor and a fairly regular drip of petrol coming from the near...

    I have just got my 95 Funduro, (13000 miles), and I have ridden it 25+ miles. The bike has only done 150 miles since it's last MOT and has the original front tyre on it; hopefully this gives you an idea of the bike. I have been told it had a recent oil change, but the last invoice shows BMW did...

    Can anyone help? I have noticed a strange intermittent squeak from the rear wheel which also gives a grating noise now and again when under braking/engine braking. I have checked the wheel over, turning it by hand while the bike is on the main stand but cannot find any problems. This has only...
