    F650 GS single 2004 twin spark 16,000 miles. (I think I read posts relating to this problem a year ago, but I can't find them.) Since I've had this bike it has had a problem that makes slow speed corners a pain. Rolling in slow traffic on minimal throttle it kangaroos as you re-apply throttle -...

    Hi chaps :) Well I have been fiddling with the routing of the throttle cable on my 2000 GS and I still canoot get it so that I can adjust it up properly and NOT have the engine ramp up when I turn hard left :( I have tried several different routings but the same problem exists, it seems the...

    Hi guys I am concerned with the amount of play that my throttle grip has on my 2000 GS. I have uploaded a short vid to demonstrate what I mean http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_6NZWy5W9Zs This had factory hot grips which had worn the rubber out so I stripped the rubber and element wire off...

    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...

    Hi, Just had the first ride out of the snow (cold up north), and the throttle twist is sticking (doesn't return back - throttle stays open). I've got heated girlie grips but I don't now if this could be the issue (getting heated and sticking). Any advice appreciated, as cruise control is not...

    A few times recently my bike has ground to a halt making lots of popping and banging from the exhaust/airbox. Usually I just do a throttle pot reset and off it goes again fine. But friday night on the way to the ace cafe it died on the north circular just before I got there, I did a throttle pot...

    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...

    Afternoon, My CS has always run very well, but over the past 6 months or so it has developed an annoying habit. Basically, if I've been running high revs, and then am slowing down, I often blip the throttle between changes to make for smoother downshifts. However, recently when doing this the...

    Hi All, I have replaced my throttle cable but notice that the new cable holds the valve open (the stopper bar is about 1/2 inch or so away from the rotating cable assembly -when the throttle is totally off.) The adjuster at the handlebar is twisted in fully. I compared the old and new cables...

    Hi Folks, I need some more assistance from the great & the good! My 95 Funduro (about 55,000 on the clock) started coughing & spluttering a bit earlier in the week, so I've swapped-out the air filter because this sorted it last time, but not this time. The bike starts fine, idles fine and...

    Typical, first day of decent weather in months and my Dakar doesn't want to play. Every time I roll on the throttle I loose power momentarily before it picks back up and takes off. It was far worse when cold. Any idea's as I went to my local dealer and couldn't get near the Service Department...

    Hi Folks, Can anyone help me with this one? The bike started running really rough (surging), using lots of petrol and taking a long time to drop the revs when the throttle was closed (no problem with the response when opening the throttle) I've just had the carbs off and cleaned them out to...

    Rosie has been laid up for a fortnight, following a slight user to gatepost interface, which resulted in a snapped indicator. I've just fitted the new indicator unit (what a FAFF!), but when I started the bike to give her a quick run to test everything is working OK, the throttle is now...

    My GF has a problem with her 05 GS in that when she uses the heated grips on the hottest setting the throttle sticks when she shuts off so the bike keeps moving!!. Its almost like the heat has expanded the grip onto the bar or switch gear. is this a known fault on the f650 or does anyone know a...

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...

    :howdy: this is my 1st post. I've had my 2000 650GS for a few weeks now and getting on fine, not having ridden a bike for 15-odd years! I still feel a little lumpy with gear changes, etc., but it's getting better. I just went out for a ride and noticed that as I went to pull out of my road, the...
