    Hi - ive just bought a 1997 funduro. Ive never owned a single before, and my last bike was a vfr750 which was turbine smooth! Hence I'd like to know what the funduro engine should feel like when its running well - maybe mine is, or maybe not! The bike is in good condition and has done 25k...

    Hi. I am using my 2000 Dakar on the road only. I want to get a little more speed at a lower RPM so I can ride at 120 Km/h without suffering too much vibration. I know there's a 15 teeth pinion for people who want more power. Has anyone heard of a 17 teeth pinion available in the aftermarket? Thanks.

    I've recently swapped my KTM400EXC for a '54 plate F650 Dakar (hence joining this forum!). She's a very tidy bike with full BMW history and has done 27,500 miles. Yesterday I took her for a run from Worcester out through the Cambrian mountains, about 200 miles in all on and off road. It was...

    Hi All. Thanks in advance. I had had the Funduro 650 for a couple of years now. I have always had a lot of vibration up though the handle bars so much so it is difficult to see clearly in the mirrors. Is this usual for a F650?

    Checked the threads, can't find a mention on this, everybody else's vibrations are to do with road speed, tyres, bearings etc. Hi Troops, help needed. This has got worse over some days, can't take a day off work so just keeping the revs down until I can sort it. F650 Funduro, twin spark...

    There have been posts before about the vibration effect through the grips that these "thumpers" cause . . . today a change of gloves caused me to stop and think. :think: You see a sudden downburst soaked my summer gloves - yes, still wearing them :riding: aren't heated grips the best - but...

    Anyone got any suggestions on how to see what's behind you when doing more than 70mph. The vibrations in my mirrors renders everything to a quivering blob above 70 (ok maybe 80). Under that speed everything is fine, visibility is perfect. Is it just me or do all single cylinder bikes suffer the...

    I have had a new clutch fitted on my '99 ST and I am sure it is a bit more viby at between 4 and 5k . the bike is running fine so it may be my imagination but I did wonder if a replacment clutch could introduce vibration if not fitted correctly, although it was fitted by my BMW dealer. Any one...
