Big Bore kit Rotax 650??
Does anyone know of a big bore kit for the Rotax 650(BMW F650GS)??
I like my F650GS, but wouldnt mind a bit more grunt.
I have thought about changing bikes, but like the size of what I have, and it is nimble around town as well. Had an R1150GS years ago, and while a great bike, was a bit heavy.
Not too keen on waiting for the F800GS( if it ever turns up)
Own what I have, farkles golore, so dont want to start again.

Search on the www.f650.com site, it's the modern equivalent of an encyclopedia.

That engine is used for supermono racing in europe and tuning parts are avaliable untill absurdum only your wallet will set the limit....
Bigbore/stroker to 790cc, billet heads with dual FCR37 and pistons with ulta high compression will give you some 500km between rebuilds

90 bhp would be nice, but the pricetag isn't.
I've asked this before and no one replied, but has anyone ever concidered or actually put a Rotax snowmobile engine (800 ccm) in a 650 frame ?

Yes, I am bumping a 2 year old thread....
however, did anyone actually take acloser look at Team PAMI's website?
They offer 103,5 mm cylinders (you have to send them yours) and pistons.
So you'd get: (103.5²*/4) *83 = 698.31 cc
That (plus a lot more modifications, a few available on PAMI's website, too) is what the 5 TT Rallye's ran in the 2002 Dakar, by the way:
