  1. Sale - Wanted - Swap (UK Only)
    Hi everyone, I'm looking for an old f650 in any condition, to pull-apart for my personal learning. Does anyone here have a deceased f650 lying around? I actually want a bike that does not run; I'm just planning on dissembling it and putting it back together again so I can really learn about...

    Any ideas what could have stopped my Headlight from working? The main beam still works and the parking light. I have checked the fuses And also tried the obvious of swapping the bulb. Any suggestions Please?

    Hi Ive had the sprag gear replaced after doing some research on here (yes I actually used the search button), unfortunately it didnt solve the problem. Theres a grating noise on pressing the starter button, it takes quite a few tries to get it to start, and it will occasionally backfire while...

    Swapped the bulb but that wasn't it then read the manual, noticed separate fuse for low beam but that wasn't it either so could it be the switch or is there a connector that is prone to parting? One of those jobs you think will be easy which turns out not to be - not that getting to the bulb is...

    Hi ODOMETER Has anybody experience of the odometer not working? I've just had a sat system put on however the odometer now just has a series of dashes - no accumulative mileage occuring. The trip meter works but resets each time I switch it off. BMW say that this should not be occuring - 'no...

    Good afternoon My lefthand indicators have stopped working on 2003 cs, the right side work fine. I have checked the indicators are pluged in to the connectors properly, should I be looking at replacing the multifunction switch, if so is it a big job and how much should I expect to pay for a new...

    Hi guys and gals. Got an infuriating problem. I'm sure the solution is straightforward, but having problems sorting it. In short, my horn has packed up! I have checked the fuses, looked at the wiring within the handlebar switch cluster; even removed the mudguard to check the terminal connection...

    My bike has developed another fault. This time it's the indicators on the right hand side. The left hand works fine, but there's nothing on the right, no dash light or either indicator lighting up. Also, after the last visit to the dealers the bike came back with a continous clicking coming...

    I've just gone to ride my bike for the first time in months and just when I really need the heated grips to work, they don't. It's only the RHS one, the left works fine. I had a low speed off earlier in the year and the bike went down on the RHS. It was relatively low speed, like at a...

    The faq's say that the idle should be 13-1400 rpm, my bike is around this when warm; but, the choke doesn't seem to bring the revs up! Is there any way to check if the choke is working? Thanks. Jim.

    ...as I found out when trying to warn some errant pedestrians on this evening's commute home :doh: Not the fuse as the headlight flasher still works and is on the same fuse. So.... anyone got any ideas where best to look first? Still under warranty so I can get sorted by dealers, but...

    Ok, new bike picked up today. Am sure all lights were working when I set off home, but now the dashboard indicators light is not working :-( All indicators and all other dash lights are fine. I've tried swopping round the dash blulbs (i.e. used the redundant ABS bulb) but not good. Anyone...

    It's on a '94 Funduro. After I filled up tonight I tried to reset my miles, only to find the dial was stuck. I then tried a bit more, but it's like I'm turning a great big spring and it just returns to it's original position. Does anyone know what parts I need to replace to get this working? Is...
