    It took a while to get it set up so I was more comfortable. The biggest helper for me was to get an AirHawk. If you don't modify the bike to fit you, then yes it is a very uncomfortable bike. ...

    Congrats!

    Congrats on the new ride! Post a picture when you can. I'm pondering a new G650 as well. I have had my current 650GS for 9 years. They are great bikes!

    Don't judge us based on politics

    Agreed. We wouldn't have any states to visit in this country if we judged them based on the politicians running them. NY may be a political nightmare, but it's the people that make a state, not the...

    My local dealer had mine for 2 1/2 months and couldn't find the issue, or a sensor fault. They suggested a wiring harness at $2,400. I tinkered with it for a week, unplugged my O2 sensor and bingo,...

    That would be great!

    rwille,

    I'm always interested in hitting some dirt. Maybe we can meet somewhere halfway and explore, or arrange a day ride. Keep in touch!

    Have you checked the sensors?

    Hi Wayne,

    Usually if you are seeing MPG in the range of the 50's, you could have a bad sensor that is not allowing the bike to close the fuel circuit, making you run heavy at all times. I was up...

    I did this once

    I unfortunately did this to my F650GS when I was a rookie owner. Dumbest thing I ever did. What happened to me was an overheat on the highway, which resulted in a melted neutral switch inside the...

    Hi Dave,

    From what I recall reading, in certain conditions synthetic oil can cause clutch slippage. I just use the recommended oil though, so I have never experienced it. Like the other guy...

    Hi Harry,

    Myself and some of the other GS riders were out your way back in September. You've got tons of awesome dirt and gravel roads. I'm jealous! I also have a client located on Main Street...

    I just started last season, finally using my GS, like a GS. I have the GPS track from the WCMC ride if you want it. I'm always looking for good dirt roads/trails. I was born and raised in Wyoming...

    Hi Rasbutan,

    Not sure if you still have the bike, or if you fixed this, but on mine it was the Lambda sensor in the exhaust. Once I unplugged that, it never happened again.

    I'm with you on that, I definitely prefer riding. Have you hit any of the back roads covered by the Wayne County Adventure Ride? It's a good time, if you like dirt/gravel roads.

    Thanks everyone!

    Thanks for the welcome! Pffog, are you in the BMWRCWNY? We may have to take a ride some time.
  15. It works

    I put one on my 02 F650GS. It definitely helps with low end surging, smoother throttle.

    New member from Western NY

    I've had my 2002 BMW F650 GS for almost 9 years, why it took me so long to join the MOA is beyond me, and slightly embarrassing. Anyway, I'm from East Amherst, NY and I can't wait to get more...
