    I have had this Dakar for some months now, and I've sort of missed the fan during summer. Have not seen temperature warning light, so I have assumed it was ok. I decided that I had to check things out. My google searches told me I should pull the temperature sensor plug on the right side of...

    Hi everyone, I'm actually located in the states, and just got my first bike, a 99 F650 Funduro/Classic. I'd love to do the temp guage mod (replacing my clock with a euro temp guage). I bought the guage from a distributor in Germany, but I can't find the temp sender / sensor anywhere...

    Hi all, I have just changed my voltage regulator and has solved my '95 Funduro running/charging issues, hurrah! I have seen the mods for relocating the VR to a non under-the-seat position. As I'm a bit of a PC geek, I had a different idea. I had an odd motherboard copper heatsink lying...

    Hi I've had my 2001 F650GS (single spark) since October, and I've loved every minute of it. Commuting to work on winding, narrow, mud-strewn roads has never been so much fun! A couple of quick questions, if I may... Question 1: I have an oil temperature gauge instead of the normal filler...

    Has anyone added a temperature gauge to a strada, if so how did they do it, I have read faq's and their installation involved removing the clock, which I want to keep.

    As the title, does anyone know how to test the fan switch and temperature sender, or do they have to be replaced. I have trawled the faq's but can not see anything.

    When the ignition is turned on the temperature light does not illuminate, is there an easy way to change the bulb in the temperature warning light on the dash panel, or possible advice why it does not illuminate.

    Hi Has anyone added a water temperature gauge to the GS? I have seen mods for the funduro and was wondering if there is any benefit. I have also seen oil temperature dipsticks. Are these worth considering? I notice that the temperature switch on looks like there is a cover missing. There...

    My temp light came on last night for the first time. I was moving in slow traffic, but not for very long, so wouldn't have expected it to overheat. I stopped and checked whether there was enough coolant, oil and whether the fan was working. All seemed fine. Any one else had this? And before...

    Hi, Are the heated grips on the 650 a lower rating than other Bm's, I have an 1150 too and these seem much more powerful? with winter approaching wanted to give myself time to sort stuff out (Aux socket etc) So are these the same rating or just less effective, have a set of muffs, and heated...

He is nearing the south of Spain but for the past three days the bike will not start until the sun is well risen and ambient temperature is warm. BMW garages have been visited along the way. spark...

    Anybody else got the oiltank dipstick thermometer fitted? I was wondering what temperature was normal. My average trip temp seems around the 80 c mark! I had noticed my fan never seems to run, checked the fan by shorting the switch and it worked. Replaced the temp switch but the fan still...

    It would be nice to know at what temperature oil and coolant are happiest and how long it takes to achieve from startup.What would be ideal is a simple formula based on ambient temperature,wet/dry road,distance travelled and any other relevant variables.Do we have a talented member prepared to...
