I banged up the sidestand switch on rocks before I put the hardpart plates on that protects these areas. Anyway the bike wouldn't start. In order to do away with this function find the wires that come out of the sidestand. go a bit further up and undo the conection. There are 3 slots take a little wire and jump the two outer wires. If you're at home and not on the trail put a little solder in there if you fee like it. Tape it all up and ziptie the dangling conector somewhere out of the way...Done...time for a beer,no more sidestand switch to break. Oh yeah don't forget to put the stand up before riding away.

Blooch I'll bring my Xchallenge to your campout.

Where were you this weekend? we had a fun time at the cat hearder thing.

hey guys,

I'm searching for a low front fender on the G650x challenge, anyone knows of a brand that makes a fitting one? Or seen a thread with a built for it? Can't find any here.

( my G650x should arrive this week! )

After a small mishap on my X-Ch (front tire hit another bike at 40kph), the ABS light stays on always. I'd like to hear what you guys think (about the light, not the mishap ) before I bring her into the workshop.

Broke the sensor or wire to the sensor. How does the ABS ring look?

THe ABS ring looks intact and so does the sensor/wire. Maybe busted internally.

Eek ABS light on

I had the same thing happen on my BMW F650GS Dakar (with ABS) a few years ago. I stupidly tried to ride in an Pine Barrens enduro on the bike and fell many, many times in the deep sand and tight trees. After one "interesting dismount" when I went over the right handlebar and landed on my back, my ABS light stayed on. When I had tried to save myself from going over the bars by grabbing any part of the bike and I remember grabbing the ABS switch area.

Long story short, I had some how broken the wire. It was an easy fix and if I remember right the ABS reset itself after the wire was reconnected.

Good luck with your search. I would start by carefully checking the wires from the red switch to the brake.

Who needs brakes anyway!

Can somebody explain to me what these are (behind the red guards) and whether or not they can be removed?



You see the little eyelet thingy held on by two allen bolts (behind the red guards)? There is one on the other side as well. I assume they might be there for the initial transport of the bike. But it seems like if they took a hit right, those two little bolts might do some damage.

I don't really think i would use them as a tie down. Do you think they could be removed?
