Bro sorry may I ask how do you find the bike coming from a kawa? Yours is PML bike?

 

Prior to the RT was riding a gtr1400, powerwise no comparison to the kawa. Comfort and electronics, the RT wins hands-down. Still at 400 plus mileage only the RT. Still restricted to less than 5000 rpm. Mine is a PI from Speedway.

Hi David,

Hope I can help.

You mentioned 'lately' in your post. Do you recall any of the following just before you started experiencing this?

1) washing the bike or riding in the rain?

2) any non oem accessories installed?

3) does the engine crank strongly at start?

 

This can help you in identifying the cause of your problem.

David,

It seems your battery is fine from your answer.

 

1. First, I would go through all the fuses and relays to check if there is water ingress, common for F650. Dry everything with a towel and don't use an airgun.

2. Also have a good look at your accessories and perhaps there is a tap on wires that it shouldn't. You mentioned that you have removed it. Does the problem still persist?

3. I would also check your ignition switch wiring harness as it can fray which happens when we take off the panels for added installation and on reinstalling, the wires tend to be a little shorter. Thus, when we turn the steering, the wires are under pressure and can fray.

 

 

 

Clock draws a small 2 milliamp from the battery even when ignition is off. Funny, but if the current is interupted, I would think that it will reset itself to 0:00 instead of stay at the time that you last turned off the ignition.

So this has me confused.

If you have an accessory attached, say a Garmin GPS, to a wrong wire, the Can Bus (is your bike equipped with CanBus?) will not turn off and allow current to flow through the accessory even though the ignition is off. This will drain your battery and though you can start your bike, the voltage will drop and cause your clock to reset, your ABS to fail start up test and wreak havoc on the magnets in your starter coil.

 

Hope you can find a solution from this. Please let us know how you are doing.

- Grab On Grip covers allow you to ride in more comfort, especially on those long rides. PERFECT for the daily commuter, tour rider, and sport riders alike.

 

Features

---------

 

- Slip over existing grips for greater comfort, or to renew worn grips.

- Work with heated or standard grips.

"Once you try it, you'll LOVE it"

 

NOTE : Lot of customers been asking what's the difference between Grab On Grip with another brand that's selling @ $30-$35.

 

Ans :

- 1st of all, Grab on Grip is Made in USA while the other grip is Made in UK. So the difference in currencies. USD vs Pound Sterling

- Difference in QUALITY. No doubt both are EPDM Foam but customers that have used Grab On Grip and have tried the "other brand", eventually came back to use Grab On Grip. Customers claimed that the "other brand" became smelly after using it for awhile and it tends to slip to the balancer causing the throttle to "stuck" which is VERY DANGEROUS. They have never face this problem when using Grab On Grip. Well, expensive things doesn't mean its good.

 

- Some customers asked how come mine is "cheaper" than the rest ?

 

Ans : There's no need for me to claim i'm the "dealer/distributor" when the product i sell is 100% Genuine Made in USA.. As a biker, I wanted to share my great experience of using this product for more than 5 years at an affordable price.

The answer is to use a GS 9-11.

:)

I have disabled the RDC feature in my oil cool 1200gsa 2011 at PML. PML Cannot replace battery in the sensor. The new sensor cost $200 a piece and pairing the sensor to the instrument cluster is $125. Total front and back sensor plus pairing is $525. PML say the new sensor battery only can last about 1.5-2 years.

I opt to disable it. Another cost for disable it. Have to buy a resistor at $9.90+ at PML and service to remove a module at the back of the seat and put the resistor at $141. Return the removed module to you.

Now no more warning light and no more RDC feature. cannot find the RDC in the cluster anymore.

Can revert back to normal if you want it back.

Hi Bimmerboxer,

 

Any recommendation workshop for overhaul of my clutch kit (2010 BMW F650GS - Twin) and cost??

 

Thank you

 

David

 

Just my opinion,

if your bike is registered with PML, then do it there as they will guarantee the parts and labour and keep records of your bike.

However, it will cost perhaps some 15 to 30% more than an outside mechanic.

 

Some mechanics outside will not possess special tools required for certain jobs such as a GS-911 or the later computer diagnostic tools to reset your bikes CPU.

 

Depending on the job, I buy parts from recognised BMW OEM suppliers, such as Motorworks or Motobins. Then get a mechanic to install with some supervision.

Sometimes I will go to PML for the work and then after have to eat instant noodles for the rest of the month or two.

 

Perfection Motors or M Technik will do the work. There are others but I am not familiar.

Had an incident with 2 BMW riders so I want to caution fello riders to stay on the road.

 

Sunday nite ~10pm i was driving out of compass pt towards SLE. While coming to the traffic light for final right turn into SLE, I was on lane 2, signaled right, checked blind spot, check mirror & i realise 2 bikes a distance behind on lane 1. As i start to switch into lane 1, ~100m from the junction I check my mirror again & realised that 2 bike was closing in @Very high speed! I then decided to switch back to lane 2 to avoid any possible 'contact'. While part of my car was still on lane 1 that 2 bikes zooooom pass me, braked hard, right turn @the junction & disappeared into the nite SLE...

 

From the rear i figure it out to be 2 × BMW GS. Fello riders, while ur bike may be big, ur skills mayb good but any contact with a car @high speed may become ur last ride. Ride safe.

 

nice save there. Riding in Singapore nowadays is like riding in russia/china. Nobody gives a hoot to anyone. Having phobia on the road after so many incidents popping up. Police do **** to mitigate errant and reckless idiots.

Used to ride: TA200 -02, WR 200DT -94, VXR 200 -04, CB400 Spec 2 -02, GSXR400RN -92, CB 400 Spec 3 -04, VLX 400 -94, DRZ400SM -06, FZ6 S2 -09

Current bikes : YZF R1 -08
