    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...

    Went to unlock the bike this morning, and couldn't turn the key in the barrel. Riggled the steering left and right whilst trying to turn the key to no avail. In the end I took the misses car. Could it be frozen?

    Hi all, After struggling with a stuck rear axle, I have now managed to get at the rear caliper which was sticking. Stripped it down and cleaned it thoroughly. Replaced seals and greased the slide pins. Off the bike, it all seemed fine. Reassembled everything...no bits left over :-D so all...

    Hi all, SO, my rear brake caliper has started sticking, the brake dragging after using the back brake. General cleaning didn't help, so I bought a "repair kit" from motorworks to replace the piston seals and give it a thorough clean but... trying to remove the rear wheel I find the axle...

    Took the bike out for a wee run last night (it's second outing this year). Had to pass a gritter on the kirkcaldy bypass so I dropped a cog and gave it a big handfull to get the shotblasting time down to a minimum. When I changed back up the bike snatched at the gearchange, I thought it was...

    Just wheeled my Funduro out after being sat for 6 weeks due to holidays and illness and guess what, it's poorly. battery is flat but I'm not to surprised about that but also the throttle didn't want to move easily, gave it a firmer twist and now it sticks wide open. the cable moves freely and...

    Guys, I have stripped down and powdercoated a single spark. Put everything back together like 5 times ( can confidently disassemble and assemble in less than an hour now). Doing the valve checking I found that the right hand exhaust valve is sticking when fully pressed in by the cam. When the...

    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...

    For once, this isn't my problem. My better half has an Kawasaki ER5 and we need to get the back wheel out to fit a new tyre. Easy, you'd think. BUT it's all jammed solid and no amount of coaxing with plank of wood and hammer will budge it. We keep spraying with lubricant but it's not getting...

    Hi all, Am hoping someone can provide some advice. 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. However, when it now starts the throttle seems to be...

    Has anyone else had any problems with these screws? I got all ready to do the brake fluid change and was stopped in my tracks. They seem very soft too and are now a little miss-shapen :wall: Walked away from it for the mo. Any advice apart from a well fitting screw driver, is welcomed. Thanks...

    Hi, I want to take up some of the slack in the rear brake pedal on my F650 classic. It moves a good inch or so before the rod has any effect on the cylinder. I have looked it up on the "Chain Gang" and it tells me to "Loosen the locknut. Turn the rod. It will go in/out depending on which way...

    Hi all - just had a frustrating time failing to do any useful repairs on the beast, thanks to no garage and not appropriate tools; but first problem I encountered should have warned me today wasn't the day for DIY - my seat won't unlock. Took it off earlier this week, no problem. WD40'd the lock...

Started up bike again and put ion gear. Freed it a bit but when rear brake is applied it clamped tight. Any...
