Can you post a few pics? It's hard to tell from their website pics if my Touratech alternator and clutch cover guards would interfere with the bash plate. Thanks.

I hope someone on here can answer my question:

I have the Husky Terra 650 and its time to check the valves. The procedure seems easy enough, but I'm missing the required screw for locking down the crankshaft.

-Is this something I need to buy from the dealer?
-Any of them on ebay/amazon?
-Is this necessary for checking the clearance or just for replacing the valve pads?
-Has anyone on here done a write-up on checking the valves on the Rotax 650?


Thanks.

No need to buy it from anyone, just make one yourself.

As for how to make a TDC bolt and on checking the valve clearences (technically you do not need a TDC bolt to check the valves, however, it makes things easier, in my opionion) check faq.f650.com

Thanks. I saw a video where a guy rounded off the end of a gas tank bolt. Is this the method you are talking about?

Has anybody tried these $100 Moose STBMW-B stainless footpegs? If so can you give some dimensions as to how long they are from the centerline of the bolt hole? Not sure how Moose measures them.



I'm looking for some longer footpegs. There are several other brands out there but I need some measurments to the bolt pivot hole if you have one, thanks!

I've never done it myself (BAD OWNER) and I'm at 20,000 miles. My bike starts fine in winter and summer, not saying that's a good reason not to check them. But I've collected a couple of links for when I get a round tuit

Here ya go, cannot say they are all appropriate, YMMV:

Ah ha, many thanks!

That's what I was looking for. I will most likely tempt this task tomorrow or wednesday.

Thanks again.

Yes another oil thread:)

So after sifting through all the pages on the X there really is not much on oil.
I am an Amsoil dealer and use it in my other bikes.
Anyone using it in there bikes currently?Has it helped with the shifting?
I notice finding neutral is a slight pain in the ass on this bike.

I would love to hear your thoughts.

Sean

I use mobile one euro car formula
Shifts like a dream and can always find neutral. Used rosella during first 7500km, no issues there either.
I have heard negatives about amsoil in the 650s tho,can't remember what threads or site though
Best I can do. I run am soil in my snowmobile dirt bike and boat with no issues. Crank case gets rosella in crank case but sabre for pre mix

What's wrong with that rear end? Just an empty air shock or what? Saw it listed yesterday at $3900, today its upped to $4900... negotiating on 39 might have been OK, but pass at 49..

Does anyone know if there's a replacement petrol cap for these bikes? I know touratech do one but the price is insane and it doesn't even lock. I figure the pattern must fit some other bike but I've ruled out the other F and G650s. I know it was built in the Italian Aprilia factory but it certainly doesn't match to the Pegaso because the contemporary model had an electronic release. Is there anything else with the same hole pattern? Ideally I'd like to fit a locking aircraft style cap so there's no piece to remove.
Thanks.
