Do you need the .dwg file for CNC? I've already made the 1" risers in qty and they are great. Just don't have time or inclination right now. I got the original file from another inmate years ago, and we modiified and improved.

Just pm me with your email and I will send.

Thanks for the offer, but I'm good



I have no idea how much they would cost just yet

Care for some business while you are making a set for yourself...
I do care for some business. I will get a cost ASAP.

All interested parties please PM or mail me delivery addresses so I can get postage costs.

Sump Plug

Does anyone know what size and pitch the sump plug on a FI F650.

I think that it is 18 x 1.5?

Get yourself an OEM one. But one from a G series bike with a hex socket for an allen key.

Yes there has been much discussion and annoyance over the original alloy drain plug which broke up too easily

I serviced a Friends Dakar the other day that had been previously serviced at Motorline here on the Sunny Coast. 2 hours later I had the lower frame off, bike lying on its left side, 2 flats file on the plug and a pipe wrench. And much profanity! They also put loctite on the capscrew that holds the top of the oil tank on. It screws into a rubber grommet ffs. More profanity.

Yes, enough said, I have seen similar and went down the road with a faulty front brake in the first 6 months of riding years ago, part of why I do my own maintenance

There were threads here and at f650 with pic's showing the old and new plus after market drain plugs but could not find em in a hurry today

With the original only a hex shaped socket is safe and even then replacement is needed, the early K Series used a more robust plug with hex key and BMW changed the later G Series to use that part

Not certain the pitch is correct, sounds too high but would be happy to be corrected

I got a question for everyone. I have an 01 that I want to ride to Deal's Gap in NC. That is about a 6.5 hr ride. Will the Rotax take 70mph for that distance or should I just trailer the bike? Bike feels fine at 65 but I've always been kinda cautious with it. Thanks

As long as you leave it in 4th gear (@65) you'll be fine - these engines don't like being lugged.
