    dada?. Thanks for posting the video.

    Your bike looks about the same as my F700GS with the lowered suspension. I also have the lower version of center stand from SW Motech. When it is on the...

    I traded in my R1200R on a 2014 F700GS with the lowered suspension. Due to age related health issues I decided a small and lighter bike was needed if I were to keep riding, especially double.

    I would not seal it, but instead look into the reasons the gas is leaking. Is the float set wrong resulting in the gas being too high, or dirty seat, worn seat. A bit of troubleshooting will solve...

    The last time I replaced a set of fork springs with progressive springs (95 R100RT in 1998) I remember putting the tighter coils up. I think it was because I would not have to recalculate how much...

    I like Tourance too, I ran them on my 2007 Triumph Scrambler. The Battlewings I have on my F700GS seem ok, but I do not fully trust them. I was caught in one really hard downpour and rode 50 miles...

    My point is the fairing is not plastic. Repairs that use solvents to melt and glue plastic together does not work well. Fiberglass repair procedures do. My 88 RS and I slid down the pavement many...

    Getting old, so bear with me. Under the gear box is the switch, which if I remember the last time I replaced mine, I had to remove the frame brace first. It was easy to do, remove the rear engine...

    I always wondered about that. The material is hard and cracks, but I never could find any fibers in it. I also remember reading that it was injected molded fiber glass, but could not remember...

    If memory serves me right, the faring is molded fiber glass, or some other hard brittle material, thus I am not sure plastic repairs apply. I second the idea of epoxy, or some some other glue that...

    I know what you mean coming from a R bike, I sold my R1200R (2012) to buy this bike (2014-F700GS). The R bikes do vibrate less and are quieter, but if you can hear yours making that much noise,...
