Thanks for the reply. Anyway how does the electric heaters work? I does see any on my carb.

The carb heater will have zero effect - its just for colder climates to lessen the chance of carb "icing" Although I'm in the UK, the bike was imported from Germany, I think? My W650 had one fitted but I've removed it and the associated wires & shite - along with the Emissions pipes too Less is More in my book

Beautiful tank!

Where did the finned bevel drive cover come from? Mine was injured in a spill. Please PM me if you want to sell your stock one.

You'd think in Singapore one would have a zillion options to chose from for W650 aftermarket parts.
The most significantly modified W650 on the web are either from Japan or Singapore..

Not aware of any threshold for posting photos. Once you're an inmate, you should be good to go.

Only catch is that ADV no longer hosts photos, likely because of server space limitations or some such. Most of us host our photos on photobucket (free) smugmug (not free, but probably better quality).

Then you highlight the url in the photo host, click on the "mountain" icon in the "reply to thread" window, and you're home free . . .

Thank you
She's rough, but cool ...


I don't have the "add attachment" box, but a list of tasks I"m allowed to do and not. I'm NOT allowed to add attachments... Which made me wonder about a number of post threshold before the site allows you to add pics...
Oh well, the links will do for now...
