Not licensed yet though.

Excellent. I think you will be impressed with it.

Swift. I was going easy on the dirt (via Sawyers Gully Rd) as no bash plate - but signs are good. It really hammers through bumpy bends on the tar - like the bends down into Wee Jasper.

Davo gave me a short ride on his new weapon at Micalong. Thanks Dave. My impression is that it has been designed by a few people who understand dirt bikes and not designed by a committee. Its really, really, really easy to ride and all the controls "just fit". It was the most comfortable I've ever been standing on the pegs. Not at all like my DR.

So, yes, its been designed to a price but they got the important things right. Oh, and it goes pretty well too.

could either of you lucky new owners check the axle diameters? in the pic above i'd hazard a guess at 17mm rear and 20mm front? which would be perfect for a set of CBR250R cast wheels with cush drive hub i adapt to each dirt bike i get.

i know it's got 300mm and 240mm front and rear discs which would be easy to work with....

Help...Help....

Hi guys,
My mate and his mrs have just arrived at my place with her riding her new Terra (1st one sold in Australia )
The thing stalls everywhere, be it at the lights, backing-off etc.

Throttle gets physically jammed on FULL and has to be jerked to release!!!
She is currently hating the bike as it has a really bad head-shake (Dunlop 606 front and rear).
She has ridden heaps of bikes (no noob) and owns a KTM 950SM.

I need to find out for them ASAP ....
  • In the owner's manual can someone please look up how long to run the bike for a "reset" of the ECU, and we will try it now. (if it will run for that long.
Please have a look and PM me or preferably call me on 0418 748 339

Cheers,
Ranger (and his visitors)

PM sent

Ring me.

Was it de restricted correctly? Cable at carb end might not be alighned - special part provided by Husky to overcome throttle stop. I have a workaround and had to sign a form to get the proper part from husky which arrives next week. Weird eh.


Stalling thing is strange - heard reports from the seppos that they had some difficulties. No info on throttle reset re ecu but You need to start the thing with no throttle 3minutes run time. Turn off. Do again.

^WHS^

From the other TR650 thread..."Some Dude" post #1235

"The most important thing with the TR650 and BMW G650's is to not play with the throttle at all during start up and particularly do not twist the throttle prior to hitting the start button. Doing so will put the EFI into a limp mode which is not optimal. Upon installing of the battery for the first time, the TR650 should have key turned on and started without any input to the throttle what so ever, then let it idle until cooling fan comes on. Let it cool, start it up again and go test ride. By about the 3rd or 4th heat/cool cycle the 650's will typically run great. If for some reason the adaptives become corrupt, such as from starting with throttle applied or too tight of a throttle cable, then the service computer is hooked up and those adaptives are zero'd out and then do to adaptive process all over again."


There is nothing in the manual about a reset that I can see.

I was expecting the Aussie bikes to be re-mapped by PFG before being sent out. It doesn't appear to be that way though. I think mine is on the lean side, but no stalling issue. It comes up as Map 2 on the display, which I think is the same as the seppo's were getting with their lean issues.

I dont have a terra but have an xchallenge so take my advice for what its worth.
If the throttle is physically jamming is all the cable routing correct? And for a reset can you just disconnect the battery for fifteen minutes then go through the proper startup procedure as mentioned above.
Good luck

It was 37 degrees yeaterday the bike ran great. A bit cooler this morning but really muggy today and I got the stalling issue raising its head.

Hopefully it won't be long before I can get it re-mapped. It's still a keeper though.

Chuffa is is stalling when chuggin around at low speed in first? or does it stall st idle or on deaceleration? Mine is slightly fluffy just off idle.

Just discovered that the top off a bottle of Castrol R30 plugs the steering head hole!

I seem to remember some G650X owner had stalling issues. I had a cluster of other issues but not stalling so I didnt explore any of the threads related to this but it may be worth searching the BMW G650X Challenge Thread Index to see what has come up. Also check the overflow valve thingy http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...90240&page=443

Crazy shit!!

I've just checked-out Cath's bike (the stalling Terra 650) which was the first one delivered in Australia (at least she got some pictures taken and a new polo shirt!)


After hearing the talk i knew something wasn't right, but when the bike was started for the guys to return home......
  • Started and ran fine when it was "cold" and the "choke" was on i.e. running rich
  • Once the engine warmed it started running rougher and if you tried to gently roll the throttle it was ABSOLUTE crap, farting, missing and almost stalling until the throttle was let off.
  • By cracking the throttle open a little quicker you can get some revs up but definately cannot roll it on without stalling.
  • The bike is basically unridable as it stalls when you go to take off from anywhere, be it traffic lights, stop signs etc. so she will get a car running up her ass if she's unlucky
The bike will go back to Husqvarna ASAP.

It astounds me that a dealership could let the bike go out the door like this
What about a little bit of checking after all of the same reported problems from overseas?

When the bike was handed over there was a quick, "fleeting" mention of some mapping that might have to be done at the first service" but they weren't sure if they did, or did not actually have the programme and mapping yet

I am sure this will be a great bike but man.... these things should NEVER have been released like this.

What do you reckon??
