    Can anyone help. I have a 1996 Funduro that I have to leave running on the choke for 10 minutes before riding. If I attempt to ride it before this time it sputters and holds back with no acceleration. This is a recent development and it rides fine when warmed up but it seems a strangely long...

    well it looks like the time has come to say goodbye to the Funduro... we've made the decision to sell one of the cars as we just don't use it enough and as the bike will be my main form of transport I'm going to be looking for something newer and probably bigger. I'm not sure what yet and...

    well, here we are again. so after i bought last week my 2000 - f650 gs, i discovered a few more things: i use the bike, the miles add up, but when i restart the bike, the mileage goes back to where it was whe i bought it. i did 80 miles so far, but when i restart the bike, goes back 80 miles...

    Hi all, I need a little info, can you trickle charge a battery (to give it a boost for winter) using the negative post on the oil filter housing and the positive post under the seat instead of removing the side panels. I know you can jump start a bike from these post but can you trickle charge...

    This little problem has been getting more annoying recently with the cold weather. In normal conditions the bike will usually (but not always) start first time, but far too often pressing the button does nothing. Try again and perhaps one might get a half-hearted attempt to kick in and then...

    Hello folks, took delivery of an ailing Funduro yesterday, few problems to sort out, back end appears seized so maybe bearings or shock is crook. Anyway, started on the back brake, it was binding badly. Having read the other threads here on this, it looks like a new master cylinder is required...

    So I've taken part in numerous debates on this site about maximum cruising speed on the F650 (specifically the older Funduro). I've always been on the slow side of the debate, saying 75 to 80 is about your lot. However, I've recently fitted a new engine in my bike (G/Box O/P bearing failure) and...

    morning all. the Dakar went for it's first MOT a couple of weeks ago and got a clean bill of health apart rom an advisory on the rear bearing. under normal circumstances, i'd think this was a bit soon given that it's only done 7,000 miles. but it has done a fair amount of off roading so i'm...

    Well everyone it's time to say a goodbye for now. I was out on the motorway on my adorable GS the other day, and felt really small - like a grown up on a BMX bike. I got home and Jonathan finally let me have a ride on his Honda Africa Twin - and I have to say it was absolutely fantastic. So...

    Just had the Funduro in for an early 48k service at Rainbow and it looks like the repairs that need doing aren't really economically viable. The 'Comments' section of the Service Info says: "needs a pair of discs, play in rear suspension, rear wheel spokes are pulling through, rear brake pedal...

    Would like to set up my Dakar to do some medium range touring around UK and Western Europe. Are there any mods or accessories I should add to the bike prior to hitting the road this summer ? Mark
