(FYI: make sure you take off the air box and put some greas around the rubber grommit on the throtel body, I even pulled the grommet and put sum around the top that seals agains the airbox [found a lot of dust in there as well].)
More dust leaks! Thanks for the heads up.
The bike is mostly apart waiting for suspension parts to be returned. I'm almost finished with DESERT SCORPION'S air box mod. I need to make the thumb screws, and find a spring to hold them in place.

Thanks for the Touratech link. I'll get at least one, and seal the air box properly.

If it's for manufacturing one, I personally wouldn't make it smaller than 19,97 mm. 0,03 mm play at that diameter in a bearing is max imho

rear wheel bearing spacer & circlip

does anyone know the exact length of the spacer in the centre of the rear wheel hub, between the two bearings?

both my bearings failed - one catastrophically, destroying; the bush on the left side, the circlip, the dust seal, and taking a few mm (i think) off the spacer.

i have spare bearings, and managed to get a similar dust seal, but i want to get a new spacer machined first thing monday - i'm in namibia (SW africa) and it will take up to 3 weeks to get a replacement otherwise...

lastly does anyone know the size of the circlip? seems about 40mm but i don't have anything to measure it accurately enough and the remaining pieces aren't really big enough to get a match.

thanks in advance.

Sh*t, just did all the wheel bearings for a friend an hour ago. Saw it too late
Hope somebody else comes with the ansswers. Good luck

For the circlip, just find yourself a circlip for the the same size as the appropriate seal. Circlips are normalised for internal hole diameters asfaik

Tucker Rocky lists front wheel bearings for the G650X XChallenge from All Ballz, but nothing for the rear. Looking at the chart on page 1 they are the same. Correct? I want to change them both just to be safe.

Front and rear bearings are both 6004. Worth changing the seals if they are worn; not sure whether they are the same though. Cush hub bearings are different. Strangely, although I have replace both sets of wheel bearings several times I have never had an issue with the cush hub bearings in over 40k miles
I've done it now.

Cush hubs are 2 x 6005 ... easy to change

Thanks, I thought they were but wasn't 100% sure. I'll have to order a set now since I've set myself up for them failing.

Had the clutch cable snap today. Not fun trying to push the bike uphill across a junction fast enough to jump on and kick it into 1st without it stalling.

New to the 650X world..

Hello all,

Well, I finally pulled the trigger on a new-to-me 650X, low miles, non-ABS, and very stock (well a few farkles). I pick it up this weekend.

So my trip dreams for the bike are wide and far - so are the list of mods that are awash in my pea-like brain. I've read several of the "adventurizing" threads, farkle threads, used search, used Google search, and maybe I've missed some information on what I'm sure will be a long list of questions.

This whole alternator thing..I've read several threads regarding the alternator output on the X compared to, say, the Dakar. (280 .vs. 400W). Lots of threads on batteries too. There seemed to be lots of threads talking about an expensive OEM replacement Alt with proper BMW warning due to the mass changes, mentions of third party replacement stators, and various projects loading up electrical's on the X's alternator as stock. Many of these threads are of various vintage and it sounds like some may have tried alternator upgrades of some sort.

What I can't seem to find are any threads/reports of those that HAVE made the alternator changes/mods (regardless of which mod) and how it worked out (or didn't).

Are most folks just running the stock alternator? I wonder with lighting, battery, electrical accessory advancements over the last few years whether the 280W is really still a limiting issue when "adventurizing" the X? For me, thinking heated hand grips, aux lighting, GPS power..maybe an accessory plug for heated vest.

I read the index page and caught the link to Electrical questions, that suggests a company called Electrosport makes an upgrade - if I remember correctly - Colebatch mentioned in one of his threads of possibly upgrading to one at some point. but I may have missed any threads talking about results.

ADVRider is an awesome resource - hoping some of you X-veterans feel like schooling a newb, as I learn the ways of the 650X!
