    Hope someone can shed some light on this... I have a 2009 F650GS Twin and someone asked me if it had CAN-BUS??? I hadn't a clue what that meant so have been reading up on it and it has left me concerned that if my battery goes flat I won't be able to move the bike as the electrical system...

    Hi Guys, has anyone had expreience of retro fitting a BMW alarm system? I bought a complete kit of a forum member a couple of months ago. I finally got round to fitting it this afternoon and it may be faulty. The alarm works fine but the immobiliser will not disengage. Leaving me with a bike...

    :howdy: Has anyone ever replaced the Thermoswitch on the thermostat while there is coolant in the system? I have recently changed the coolant but want to fit a new Thermoswitch before the 'summer heat' because I think the current one is faulty.

    Hi folks I have recently replaced my old System 4 BMW helmet and double glazed visor with the System 5 version. One visor has been replaced as faulty (kept misting up) and the replacement also mists up. Does anyone else have any experience of this. Is it the helmet, the visor or me ? The System...

    I'm in communication with Ron Woods in the US, they've got a Nitrous Express kit listed for Bombadier DS650 and BMW F650 (same engine). Has anyone tried one of these - could potentially be a LOT of fun for £370 :riding:

    Hi, I've tried a search on this one, prior to writing this, but didn't find much information. Those of you who have an alarm fitted: Which one do you have? Are you happy with it? Does it drain your battery much? Did you fit it yourself? I live in a rather poor area of London and I'm worried...

    Morning all, My ride to work, which I am lucky to do two or three times a week, is directly into the rising sun. I'd like to get a darker visor but I believe that DARK ones are illegal, however I think I also read somewhere that there is such a thing as a lighter legal tint. Would anyone...

    Afternoon All, I may have the opportunity to buy a BMW Audio System for the CS. I quite fancy it in a 'stupid must buy gadget and then leave it in the loft for years' sort of way. Question is, has anyone ever used one? Was it any good, or just a bit of a gimick? The sensible part of me is...

    Besides the nice noise it makes, can anyone give their opinion about the effect it has on the running of a F650GS. Is torque and power altered for better or worse, is the low speed running still ok and is fuel consumption changed?

    I have just purchased a Ventura Luggage System but have run into a problem when trying to loosen the silencer's on my 2005 GS before fitting the L Brackets which support the rack at the rear of the bike. . I am sure the problem is trivial but after removing the fasteners as per "fitment...

    I bought the active plus kit at the MCN show today (don't tell the wife, she'll shoot me :-D ) It's all installed already! I just seem to have a problem with the interface to my mobile phone. I can hear them but they can't hear me. I have fired off an email to Autocom already, hopefully they...

    Hi ..... Has anyone managed to correctly fit the Touratech Pannier mounting kit on their Dakar. The lower cross piece seems just slightly too long to fit the frame. I went mad trying to bend the frame back to make it fit but gave up. The frame seems sturdy enough and I've ridden with the...

    Hi, I had my alarm fitted to my Dakar today. The only place we could find to put the alarm was where the tool kit lives under the seat. Pretty good fit actually. So the tools now live in the lockable..( HA! :whistle: ) compartment behind the seat. ( I have a metal lock doodad on order from...

    After trying every flip helmet around I finally settled on a BMW as the best fitting and bought one today :-D One question though... it didn't come with any care instructions or anything. Is it supposed to? And even if it isn't, how on earth do you get the visor off for cleaning or whatever????
