Care to trade?

I also have the 2" Kouba links that I used for a short time that I've not been able to sell, so you can have them for shipping cost.

Let me know.

Mileage vs Odometer

Ok gang,

Here is one that has me scratching my head. On my recently purchased 2006 Dakar, I noticed that I would reset the trip meter to zero between fill ups. Problem is, after nearly 200 miles of riding, my trip meter read only 91 miles... Yesterday, rode over 10 miles after a fill up (according to the odometer) and it registered only 1.3 miles on the trip meter. Any clue as to what may be wrong or how to diagnose this? The previous owner had done some enhancements... LED dash lights, Stebl horn, etc... Not sure if any of this would affect the trip meter. At first I thought it may be something to do with conversion between Km and miles... but this is still way off.

Oh and While, I have your attention... Is there a sight that has an 06 Dakar manual in PDF form?

All save in my phone. With all three I can access to torque spec, bearing size, how to repair all in my phone.
Make me feel very safe to go touring around asia alone.

Dang, that's a great idea. I carried a lap top with my cd manual on a big trip once about eight years ago. I think Blackberries were around, but I didn't even have a cell phone at that point. I was always paranoid it would get destroyed from the trip, but it did last another three years.

Re dash, there were a batch of defective units around the 06 period and were replaced under a TSB, just check your VIN is not in the affected VIN range

Interesting, I checked w/ two different BMW dealerships for minor service. They usually check for this stuff.

I'll give them a call and see what they say.

Thanks.

Dying GS

Hi all,

Happy new year to everyone! Short is, with all the help, I've been able to line up shops that might carry the injector, and / or do professional cleaning on the rail. I haven't touched the bike, save make sure all the exposed fuel parts are covered. Am going to hunt for a replacement injector tomorrow, and will put that in the bike on Saturday.

@WayneC1, thanks for the part numbers, huge help. Regardless if the replacement injector works, I'll move on to the diodes next, just to be safe.

@Gravel Seeker, will double-check on Saturday, thanks for the diagram. The symptoms are a bit different, but while the throttle body's all out there, it makes sense to take a look.

@1911fan, I tried the part number on a NAPA website and got an O2 sensor?

@Lupin 3rd, I've replaced the fuel pump and in-tank filter already. Am not sure how to check the ECU, I'm hoping to hold off buying any specialized equipment at the moment. Is there an easy way to check?

@divimon2000, green relay looking box, thanks. Forward of the battery, under a plastic cover? Checked the fuel pump wires, and they seem okay, still no sign of chafing under the "L" bracket, but will look again on Saturday when the light is better. I don't know what my software version is, so I'll run with WayneC1's Bosch part number in the meantime. Thanks for the offer, yeah, my parts bin is slowly filling!

@everyone, I'm learning a lot, much appreciated. Will update on Saturday, or when I get the bike back together.

I put partNo's for many aftermarket parts on line including the O2 sensor in this page http://www.f650gs.crossroadz.com.au/...tiveParts.html

If not the defective dash...check the sensor on the rear wheel. On really humid days, or riding in the rain, my 01 starts doing the same thing until it finally just quits working. Soon as it drys out it goes back to normal. I dont remember the exact details, but it had something to do with the sensor being dirty and just basically a poor design. I dont remember if I read about it here or at F650.com, but if you do a search for it should be able to find it.

Know the feeling. I carried a laptop around Australia in 2005 and it was just an inch or so too wide to fit in my bag, so I had to carry it diagonally in one of my soft bags with clothes on either side (the two triangle rooms that were left). After having the bag packed tight and I think I also may have dropped the bike at the time, the laptop was bend so only 3 corners would touch the table and the third one was almost 1/2 in up in the air. It still worked and after a couple of weeks it had bent back by itself All the keys are ground into the screen, but I can still use it. It was slow back then and annoying to use now.
