Have considered that too.

Have a question on resetting the idle actuator. When i do the reset, i don't hear it do anything at first, but when i turn the key off, i hear it make sorta like a clicking sound. Almost sounds like it's sticky. Is it suppose to sound smooth? Sounded like this before and after the cleaning. Would it be harmful to run it through the reset while it's out of the throttle body to see if it's moving correctly?

Buy it, install it, test it, and report back. You the test mule, Leafy!

Took a ride to Philly last night. Great route down from nyc with lots of twisties, then cheesesteaks and some nice urban riding around town.

Yesterday. No cheesesteak. No flowers. No humans. Was planning to spend the night, but returned home. 412 miles.

That's why I like to ride at night.

I'd rather ride where you were.

Quick clip of the starting/stalling issue. Does this every time the bike has been sitting for more than 5 minutes.

stalling Xch

Bonjour,
Xch end '07(first owner-15000km),still troubles with idling until warm.
Followed all the tips(also cleaning actuator-which wasn't dirty) was worst thereafter (15' fidling with acc until warm enough)
Then saw somewhere to place a resistance of 10Kohm beween air temp.sensor and the "controller".bought the resistance(15 cts) put it in the wire and have since no troubles with idling!

Stalling Issues

@Yukon Ho! -- Thank you for linking to the issue log I created for the G650X stalling issue. There is actually a 'mini-thread' devoted to the subject and I am adding data to the final post in it as new fixes come to light.

G650X Stalling Thread

I just added the temperature sensor, crimped fuel line hose, and 10K Ohm resistor fix for future reference.

Scramble Pak -- Tools

I just bought one of these Klim Scramble Pak and I am currently loading it with critical tools I might need on the trail side.
  • What size sockets do you guys carry?
  • I have (2) 19mm wrenches that were in the factory tool kit, I assume there was two because they double as the tire irons? What is the 19mm wrench used on? Do I need both, or even one?
  • I have a full tire/tube repair kit assembled, but how do you get the wheel off on a bike with no center-stand?
  • I am thinking of adding a small vise grips, crescent wrench & a nut driver with assorted allen, Torx and screwdriver tips to save space/weight, small needle-nose pliers. Anything else I should be thinking of?
I do carry a small bit of duct tape, JB Weld, mechanics wire, zip-ties, chain master link, spark-plugs and socket to remove them. Maybe one spark plug is enough? I figure you should at least have tools to remove the plug in case you get water in the engine. I am planning some adventure rides this Summer, probably some by myself, and want to have the right tools if I need them! I also don't want to carry anything I will most likely never need. I also bring a small medical kit for emergencies.

Thank you for your ideas!

Ya know, for two years now I've had a 19mm on my list of wrenches I should have but don't. Could somebody please tell me what this fits?

Right now, in the wrench department, I carry--

SOCKETS 6mm 8mm 10mm 12mm 13mm
BOX WRENCHES 8mm/10mm combo; 13mm; 14mm/15mm combo; 26mm
HEX WRENCHES 2.5mm 3mm 4mm 5mm 6mm

And for trailside tire and wheel work, you could get a "Trail Stand" - clicky for ADV Vendor thread - or something like it.

For removing the spark plugs, I use this tool to remove the caps -

http://www.marcparnes.com/BMW_Plug_Tool.htm

You can pry it off with a flat head screwdriver in a pinch, but are likely to damage the plastic on the caps. (These are the caps under the airbox that need to be removed in order to stick a spark plug socket in there). Also - make sure the spark plug socket you bring actually fits in the hole. I can confirm that the motion pro socket fits well.

That said - I've never had to mess with the plugs while on the road. I changed my axle nuts to 27mm and use motion pro's tire spoon/27mm wrench, which is nice and light aluminum. Plus 2 steel or titanium tire levers.

I don't remember anything on the bike being 19mm (spark plug is 18 I think) - but I carry the best rest 17mm and 19mm slip on wrench heads for the tire levers because my wife's bike uses them -

They are doing good. It's a big improvement compared to the original springs.
But I am going to change the fork for something with a better damping system.
