    How much Techron did you get for 16 GBP.... That is over $22US. A typical container of Techron is around $6 (4 GBP) in Montana. Hard to fathom such a large price difference. Glad you got the issue...

    Measure it yourself and if it is out of spec replace it. No need to buy from BMW or pay their labor rates. There are some good, readily available aftermarket disks available. EBC comes to mind....

    It is axiomatic that when something is wrong with a motorcycle the most likely cause is something the owner did to the bike, ostensibly to make it better. Don't feel bad, most of us have done it. ...

    OE Lowered Seat From a F700GS

    $150 plus shipping. The bike had 7,700 miles on it when the seat came off and looks excellent. Should fit F650GS and F800GS.

    Located in Helena, Montana

    PM me if interested.

    3,000 RPM is too low to try "pulling" in the upper gears. Your problem is likely that you are lugging the engine. You provided the solution in your original post. The problem goes away when you...

    The F650GS has a single disk brake on the front; the F700GS has two disk brakes on the front. Does this result in a different ABS module? Probably not... probably.
