    HI Guys I orderd a normal size 100/90 - R19 Michelin Anakee (H rated) and today an Anakee 2 110/80 R19 arrived (V rated).

    Has anyone found a solution to removing a stubborn brake pad retaining pin without damaging the caliper? The pads on my F650GS have evidently never been changed (almost 5 years old...) and it seems that the retaining pin is seized. Has anyone experimented with taking a blow torch to the...

    I know I am likley to get somewhat biased thoughts on the F650 forum, but I am going to replace my F650ST in the new year and I am keen on getting a brand new bike. I have had my eye on a F650GS for some months but have recently seen The new Yamaha MT-03 ( powered by the XT660 single) and the...
