How did you go with the valve clearances... any pics or details on the reassembling?
Cheers, GSDane.

Hi mate, thanks.

I found left exhaust and intake were out of specs by very small margin. It was only difficult due to the range is starts from very close to zero thus makes use of my smallest feeler gauges which was kinda hard to put through and also the space on the bike doesn't help.

All in all wasn't very difficult though had to removed what seemed a million bolts to get there, using several different sizes ... other than that wasn't too bad.

Finally got it adjusted on a proper shop as I was running out of time, basically cause I didn't have the shims to replace it

I followed instructions http://faq.f650.com/GSFAQs/Valve_Shim_Change_FAQ_GS.htm obviously disassembly is different but checking is very similar.

Picture wise, didn't manage to get something useful and detailed enough to my liking, but go some

1. Airbox removed, including 2 zipties, bleeding hose, butterfly, etc


2. another look to the intake duct that is bit dirty


3. Front bolts are difficult to access due to angle


Finally the inner spark plug was hard to remove, due to again space and angle

Hope this helps, what do you ride?

and in case u wondered about the old ones

the old ones can be argued that had finished a cycle
Rear AC10 with honourable 9000K, and front TKC80 with 20 odd thou


closer look to ac10


in the end was awesome for power slides on tar

I have just come back from a fantastic ride - great 3 months and 20000k's (http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=696204).
Now having the bike pulled apart for a thorough clean and service... We adjusted the inlet valves and putting it back together wanted to double check the timing - managed to get hold of the manual and all sorted out (the TDC bolt on the right hand side).

I found left exhaust and intake were out of specs by very small margin. It was only difficult due to the range is starts from very close to zero thus makes use of my smallest feeler gauges which was kinda hard to put through and also the space on the bike doesn't help.

All in all wasn't very difficult though had to removed what seemed a million bolts to get there, using several different sizes ... BMW singles in a nutshell

Finally got it adjusted on a proper shop as I was running out of time, basically cause I didn't have the shims to replace it

I followed instructions http://faq.f650.com/GSFAQs/Valve_Shim_Change_FAQ_GS.htm obviously disassembly is different but checking is very similar.
2. another look to the intake duct that is bit dirty Same on mine... A rumour has told me that this is a common issue because the airbox cover does not seal properly - will see if I can get more precise info.


3. Front bolts are difficult to access due to angle Easier with the radiator off I guess


Finally the inner spark plug was hard to remove, due to again space and angle

Hope this helps, what do you ride?

a real ride

So thanks to Eddie have a little video of real run on the bike's new setup.

Everything worked alright except that a full lock the handlebards (the handguards actually) hit the fairing

Bar risers

The bars tend to move out of alignment at the smallest drop (which happens very often ) anyway

This causes the rubber bushes and bolts to deteriorate.

So cause the current bolts have already been straightened I though try new bolts but for that I needed to change risers

the old risers were cheap Touratech

so this are the new risers

the new ones are also taller, though bring bars backwards.

This won't cure the moving but maybe will help ... in the meantime I'm exploring optiosn for the rubber mounts
