I ordered both direct from Australia. I had to cut the mounting flange on the prefilter with a dremel because it didn't fit when trying to bolt it on the bike.

Other than that, it works like a dream and both filters cleaned up last night in about 5 minutes in the kitchen sink.

Wheel Spanner

I just purchased a 26mm ring spanner then cut it to the same length as my tyre levers and ground the end smooth. Easy as.

X Challenge shop manual

Does anybody know where I could pick-up a good shop manual for the 650 X Challenge? Also looking for a stock seat; anyone have one they'd like to sell?

Zuma Man - G650 Manual

I went for the BMW CD. The R-series one was available on line.
For my G650XCh I purchased the genuine article from BMW.
Part 01797706315.
It's not too expensive and it covers everything. I do my own servicing and it is worth having the manual.
I also have a GS-911 tool (from when I had an R12GS) which works on the G650 and alows me to check/reset logs and do things like the idle actuator reset.

Shop around though. I got it shipped from Australia. I paid US$114 including freight. Local Agent wanted US$185.

Buel

Does look a bit like the water cooled Buel. Maybe it's the Rotax engine?

The BMW OEM ones will not fit as there are no mounting holes. However, pegs could be welded on easily and the frame repainted black.

Touratech Filter Fit

I just received my new Touratech (UNI ?) foam filter, greased the lip and installed it; and found that it wouldn't sit flat on the sealing lip because the internal spring is contacting the rear-most wall inside the air box and lifting the front lip of the filter. Ok, no problem... I removed the spring and reinstalled the filter, I now realize another issue... a partial cause of the poor fit is due to the width of the sealing lip being significantly smaller than the opening. Lengthwise the lip seats in the cut-out nicely, but widthwise (front to back) there seems to be approx a 1/8 gap on either side...? When I install the retaining ring and screw it down; 3 out of 4 times the rear edge (closest to rider) collapses into the air box cut-out .

I should add that the OEM BMW paper filter fits like a glove.

Phew, that was a lot of words... long story short I was wondering if anyone else has encountered this issue? According to my Touratech distributer in Quebec... I'm the only one in the world. (I guess my wife was right: I AM friggin' special! )

Any input would be appreciated...

Mine fits just fine. Really put a lot of grease on the lip of the filter and crank the hold down surround piece on. Oh, and put the spring back in. You can lift it up towards the top of the airbox to keep it from hitting the wall of the airbox.

The paper filter filled my airbox with dust, the Uni doesn't, especially with the pre-filter.

Thanks for the info!

I did put a pile of grease on the sealing lip, but the problem occurs when I crank on the hold down bracket bolts... that's when the edge nearest the rider collapses into the air box... wtf? I won't ride offroad with the paper filter and I'm not too sure about the fitament of the foam filter... maybe a pre filter would put my mind at ease...?

Does anyone know if there is a North American distributer of the pre filter yet? My Canadian TT distributer doesn't have it available yet !
