I've a question for those with the Hepco & Becker rack. There are 2 threaded holes on the right subframe leg where the lower rack bracket bolts on. The lower hole is 8mm but the upper one is 5mm. Its purpose from the factory is for securing the wheel well plastic shield, and doesn't seem to be large enough to provide a solid mount for the rack.

When you installed your rack, did you maintain the smaller bolt or did you drill/tap for an 8mm bolt?

g650x-c clutch lever pivot bush

posted same on x-c link. Can anyone assist?

has anyone ever replaced this bush?

The BMW part number on many sites is correct part number however the part BMW have supplied doesn't fit. We (the dealer and I) have tried ordering it twice now. Apparently they have discussed it with BMW Australia and Germany and can't work it out.

The G650X-C has a brass or bronze coloured bush in the clutch lever and pivots on a bolt like most levers do. the part they are supplying is a plastic similar bush however the bolt has no hope in hell of going through it.

I have verified a mates X-C is also the same as mine.

The newer G650 models have the same part number and the black plastic bush is correct for those bikes because the pivot bolt is a narrower bolt.

Bloody bad service when BMW are asking me to pull it apart take photos and measurements for them!

Love any assistance
thanks.

I tried a search on the thread but no luck

Does anyone have pic's or info on the fuel pump assembly in the 650X models ?

In particular I am looking for info on the regulator which it would seem is in line above the fuel pump in the tank

The online fiche only show the complete assembly, I am looking for pic's and info on the pump and regulator which is info beyond fiche data

It would appear there is an inline regulator above the pump & I am wondering if anyone who has had the pump out can confirm it

Here below is a link which may help with your research. I checked a few different 650 X models and production blocks and had no joy finding a fuel pressure regulator. I think the fuel rail pressure is computer controlled i.e., via pump speed. Here'a a typical system: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XNAhBHxX1S8

Use your serial number in the link for a more direct route to the part(s) in question. Good luck!

Thanks for the responses to my first ever post, yep based in the south east of the UK near Brighton, busy main roads but quiet country lanes ideal for X Moto. There was a massive Ace Cafe run in Brighton last weekend, here's a couple of pics from it.

There was a mile and a half of this:



Then there was me and plenty of others around parked up as near as we could get (spot the virgin back tyre):

The GS and the X share the same BMS with different firmware & while main power to the pump is from the BMS on both models there is no trigger for pressure sensor control of the pump. The fuel pump is the same on both as well but fitted in a different plastic mounting.

On the GS we have a mechanical combined filter regulator under the cowlings with overflow back to the tank

The X does not have the same external mechanical regulator & there is no electronic pressure sensor I can find which suggests the regulator is mechanical and fitted within the tank as part of the fuel pump assembly

Maybe there will be ride report. Still thinking about it. Video will require some longer work as we have 3 gopro's and as a result there is aprox 50GB of source clips. Unfortutatelly most of them just onboards from ride.
