I was concerned about the scraping marks on the swingarm as seen in these pics from the above link, you know how sensitive I am about my swingarm...
Tim perhaps you can comment but it sure looks like there is/was a clearance problem?




So I started with these smaller D-rings from my local Ace Hardware, you get 4 of them for $10 and it took a couple of tries as I bent the clip around until it surrounded the D-ring. In theory the holes would line up, I got close. I only use it on the right side as it really is a mess on the left side, even with my LV exhaust feel it would pull the GL Great Basin strap in against the pipe and actually the heat shields way too much, so I use the removeable footpeg on the left (this is on an '07 XCountry aluminum subframe). I'll take my chances.

These are plenty sturdy, the d-rings are even welded shut.

Interesting...was yours the 'yellow' one ? When was it actually built (from the VIN). I think that a simple way of telling is if the rear foot-peg mounts are welded to the sub-frame...though maybe someone will correct me on that too

Thanks for correcting.....on reflection that must be the case as on my steel frame, the foot-peg mounts were welded to the sub-frame so I had to cut them off but I still had the 'holes' that I was referring to....doh

Thanks for the idea Frosty....you may have just solved a problem for me. I think 4 of these type things welded onto the front of my bike would make excellent tank bag attachment points for my small Wolfman tank bag. I don't like the oem mounting....too many flappy straps for my taste.

VIn showed '09. It was yellow, it had rear passenger pegs welded to aluminum frame. No magnet ever stuck to the frame

Ok, that is strange. Mine was yellow on an 09 plate but vin showed that it was build in the factory September 08. Its definitely steel though. Is yours the US version....maybe that has something to do with it?

I've been looking for fuel filter and I cannot find it. I know that at the F650 is somewhere under the seat (see the picture). Can anyone tell me where is the filter or XC doesn`t have something like this?

I know the pump is inside the tank. Not sure whether there is a filter in there too. No filter outside the tank as the hose goes direct from the tank to the throttle body.

It is part of the fuel pump I think.

Oil pump failure update

Bike is now returned. The good news is the engine sounds sweet and Oceans, the local dealer, have done a thorough job. They removed the rocker cover as well to check the cams - all fine there. Even better was the fact that the total bill was only 250. I know how long they spent on the job and that is a VERY good deal. Thanks guys

I have the broken parts and the pump shaft is definitely turning a little rough in the pump cover. However it appears that this has been caused by a few scratches on the shaft caused during the failure or subsequent disassembly. Not the cause of the problem. The inner pump rotor was not turning freely inside the outer part due to debris, what appears to be black plastic, rammed into the end of one of the points on the outer rotor. After removing the debris, the rotors turned smoothly.

Now what has most likely caused the problem: there are a couple of dimples on the lobes of the inner rotor, and matching ones in a point of the outer rotor. No idea what has caused the dimples but I doubt it was the plastic as there is no damage in the point where the plastic debris was lodged. With the pump parts being steel it is most likely a piece of metal debris that has passed through the pump. This in turn has stressed the gear which has then failed.








No sign of metal debris when I changed the oil over Christmas. Fresh oil and filter have been fitted with the pump but I am inclined to give it a couple of weeks to flush round the engine and change again, just in case there is anything else washing round in there.

Considering a purchase of a bone-stock XChallenge. It has 7500 miles on it. What should I focus on when examining the bike? It looks damn good. Do people put crash bars on the thing? Thanks, really.

Check the reply under it as well.

My bike came with Hepco and Becker crash bars.
