I adjusted the bolt all the way counterclockwise but the engage was still at the end.

I think we are talking about this:

Is the chain the same for F800GS and F650GS?

Yup, that's the one. You can gain a significant amount of slack by adjusting the nuts. I'm much happier now that my clutch friction zone is in mid-travel versus the stock set-up. Much easier to work the clutch with two fingers.

Sorry if this is the wrong place to ask this question.

My wife is concerned about a warning light (engine symbol) that comes on at start up, but goes out a few seconds later. She thinks that it never used to do that before. The bike is an F650GS twin.

Do they all do that?

If the light goes out in a few seconds, the self-check was OK and bike is good to go. If it stays on, then you're hosed; better call Fritz.

Seems to me that one of the lights (can't remember which) stays on a bit longer than usual when you're getting close to a service interval.

Thanks for the responses. My wife loves that bike. A few rides ago she had she fell behind. So I waited, as soon as I could see her I moved on again. We played that game a couple of times until we finally stopped together.

I got it in the ear immediately. She had a warning light on, and had stopped because of it. Wanted to know why I kept taking off. We took a little while to figure out that it was a dead headlight bulb, well it did say lamp somewhere.

She has a 1mm chicken strip on her rear tire, so she knows how to keep up. I should have been more aware....

Have the Adventure Bars installed with a Utah Sport Bash plate. Great combination. (Maybe not as nice as that Wunderlich bash plate though)
The bars have done thier job several times.
