    Distance on F650GS Single

    Hi, Wayne,

    I rode my 06 F650GS to the MOA Rally in Oregon this year and it worked great for the most part. I used a Sargent seat with a sheepskin which worked well for me on several 600+ mile...

    I don't think that the PR2 has a particular problem with premature wear in the center section. My personal experience (2 sets and about 18K miles) is that the harder center section wears far longer...

    I've used up two sets on r1150r getting 9-10k each. At 2k or so I had a ridge between the hard and soft compounds as the soft compound portion wears faster. Toward the end of tire life, there was...

    Wilburs Shocks

    I installed a set of Wilburs on my R1150 R last spring and it made a huge difference. My 13K stock shocks were not leaking but I noticed some "wallowing" on large bumps. With the Wilburs, the...

    Another view on chain oilers

    When I purchased my first F650 in 97, I was worried about the chain and installed a Scottoiler. Although it did keep the chain oiled, I found that I was spending about as much time maintaining the...

    Zumo on R1150R

    I hear you about my Gadget Guys/Touratech mount being pricy, but it works really well, providing a secure mount in just the right place for me, that I can see over my tank bag but also doesn't block...

    Gadget Guy/Tourtech Locking Mt

    After a bit of experimenting, I ended up using a Gadget Guy mount which uses longer handlebar clamping bolts. It provides a crossbar to hold a locking

  10. Speedo Glass

    I had a cracked speedometer glass on an F650 a few years back and was able to get a replacement cut at a local glass shop. I don't remember the price, only that it was very reasonable.

    Jesse Odyssey II on R1150R

    I did. The folks at Explormoto, who now handle Jesse sales, say that the Odyssey II's are not proven for the R1150R. Because the R1150R is no longer in production and there was never much demand...

    Pivot and Swingarm bearings the same?
