Hey MC,

glad to have you tuned in! we're having a blast with the bike rebuild. it'll be back in top shape for spring, maybe we'll head over your way for the first adventure ride!

850?

Hey, you've gone this far. You could go with one of the long stroke cranks and/or big bore barrel. I think you can go out to 850cc and near on 80hp using both. yes, I know it defeats the whole purpose of the bike; moderate power and good economy. I'll see if i can find the link.
This engine is used in the bombardier DS650 quad bike. So there are a number of hot up options.

Here you go

I googled ds650 performance.
Oh, and it is Can-Am ds650. (By bombardier)

These guys do piston kits, gaskets etc: http://www.ctracing.com/ds6501.htm
Ah, here is the 800cc kit. ( I was nearly right): http://www.omwracing.com/engines_rotaxds650.htm

You'd have to figure out the injection and timing. But would be a fun project.
There are plenty more to choose from . Might be a good place to look for gaskets.


Anyway, just FYI.

Thanks for posting that info, someone may be interested. We're going stock for cost and reliability. I personally love the gas mileage and reliability of the factory set up.

Hope those parts come in soon!

Me there, or you guys over here...

I have TONS of camping space and you can have access to a kitchen n potty (of course)...it's a heck of a place to call home and near perfect for a few (20+ eveb) bikes to stop over...anytime! Just give me some lead time to we can prepare!

Cheers

Can you post where you bought the WP seals please. They appear to be of a different material than the ones from the dealer?

I got these from a rotax dealer since BMW only sells a WP kit which includes a shaft and impeller (mine were OK). The guy told me these were the new design rotax W/P seals, part number 230195. (old number 230196). http://www.crg-america.com/kart-part...20(FR%20DD2%20...

They are used in a rotax racing kart engine (FR125). it has the same water pump design as the f650.

I had seen that site before but was not in the market at that time for seals. I am one of the ones with a wonderful seal eating machine!!..... although I changed the clutch side cover 24000kms ago and it seems to be only a drop or so after sitting for awhile which now seems normal. Before the side cover change I went through 4 water pump kits all under warranty, the 5th kit is when we changed the cover and another shaft and seal. I was long past warranty but BMW covered it under their goodwill program.
I'll pick up a set of these seals for my travell spares, Thanks

Bout time! Let me know if you want to come over for the "put it back together days" coming up early Feb.

Yeah, riding in town Sunday was like a major training class in dodging the other guy, what a mess. But it was fun!
At Co-op:

Is it OK to park in "Bike" stalls?

So far I have more riding days in this winter than my buddy with his snowmobile. I think I can win by a longshot.
