Bearing replacement is not hard but they are knocked out in order from the outside to inside exiting at the cush drive, inner bearings first, then circlip, then outer bearings.

Hi,

i got some hella headlights (could not resist the temptation they were pretty cheap comparing to 'serious' 100$+ lights) and now i am looking for the wiring scheme as these lights are just light with brackets.
Do they go directly to the battery at one wire and to switch at another wire? How this pair of lights should be connected (parallel or one-after-another in the electrical chain)?

TIA

No luck for me either. I've got a couple of spare OEM levers.

Especially, no luck when I broke one off in rural Ontario, and went to 4 different dealers to try to find one.

i was thinking since the brake is brembo maybe it might be easier but i havent gone to the dealer to check yet. and the clutch i might end up using a aftermarket lever assy. at the worse case i can polish the stockers i guess!

I'd be looking at a Domino throttle. I'm not sure of a part number, but they make a "fast turn" and a "slow turn" version (1/8 and 1/4 turn). They seem to be the de facto standard on European dirt bikes at least. You want the 2-stroke version, which is a single pull cable, rather than the 4-stroke push-pull version.

I ordered one on these but have not put it on yet.No idea if the cable will work though.

So I'm very close on pulling the trigger on a new Sertao and thought I would ask you fine gentleman your thoughts on the 650. From my research its a Dakar only without the name,
Is there anything that I should be warned about or any must have upgrades? Thanks

Ken

Rear Fork Decal for Chain

What a pleasure to see the F650GS Dakars!!
I just repainted my '05 Dakar frame components and now require the unavailable schematic decal on the right side of the rear fork to show the chain adjustment. Can anyone please snap a high quality shot of this area up close and post it so that I can digitize it for a replacement? Tried the dealer and it's not available but a local sign shop says it can be done.

Most of us here like em, which is why we are here. There are farkles galore, but as is, the stock suspension is ok. Lot's of mods for that one simple or not so simple. Just changing the oil weight, I hear, helps with the forks. Or you can put on a YZ front end, and I believe there is a kit that lets you keep your ABS from someone here. Put on some knobbies and they are pretty good in the dirt, though no real dirtbike without some serious mods.

Personally, I did a 10k mile trip two-up a few years back. Had that thing loaded down The only thing was going through rear tires and breaking an excel rim. The rest of it performed great, but I ride it solo now.

Did they solve the water pump problem with the Sertao? Or at least make it easier to replace?

I think they at least re-routed the troublesome oil line, so it's easier to get the side cover off.

Good info!! I will check in to both of those questions today and see. Can you expand on the water pump problems and the oil line accessibility problems?

Waterpump seals generally needs replacing every 30.000 km. You need to remove the clutch cover to do this and the oil pipe runs outside the rear part of the clutch cover, making it a hassle to get off and back on.
Pipe can be modified/ re routed when you do the first waterpump replacement and problem solved.
