Did you moved the oxygen sensor that is mounted in the air snorkel?

it may hang down a extra half inch or so because of the angle of the base welded on. not bad though.

I was thinking along the same lines with the stand, but I decided to remove the bottom frame all together in the near future. So got a YZ trail tech stand and footpeg bracket and weld that onto the OEM bracket.
its the stock foot peg bracket but i drilled lightning holes in it. knocked off about a quarter lbs.

Time to liquidate. You just might find someone around here interested in buying that horribly mutilated 650GS...

Has anyone removed their swingarm while following the FAQ at f650.com? I'd like to know if there are any tools/parts/steps needed that aren't mentioned there, since it looks like it was written for the funduro. Is the single spark shop manual as good/better for a reference?

I took mine off without any manual or f650.com.
It is relatively easy if you have a set of sockets and some spanners.

There is only 1 bolt that is a bit iffy. On the way out it interferes with the chain roller bracket(on a Dakar). But definately not impossible to get out.
It's the one on the right in the picture

I'll be doing the work in the street and this is my only motor transportation, so i need to know i have everything to get the job done in a few quick sessions. My socket set is minimal, only up to 18mm, looks like 2 22mm ones are needed?

I assume you're using the Queen's english for 'spanners', meaning regular (but metric) wrenches in Ameriglish?

DC, I should have some sockets you can borrow. Let me know. You can also use my driveway if you like.

+1 on quick action throttle..


Its take out the slack in the response, cures my pop corn machine, no more high idling issues and wheelies easier..
Mine is a domino though...

I think I used both as a reference when I did mine last year.

I don't remember it being very complicated. Basically remove the rear wheel, get the brake and chain guards off and out of the way, remove the suspension linkage, remove the bigass bolt through the pivot (took some hitting with a drift and a hammer). Assembly was the reverse of disassembly, with plenty of moly grease crammed into the bearings, and some anti-sieze smeared on the bigass bolt.

I removed the shock at the same time and sent it out to rebuilt, and getting the subframe and gas tank out of the way was a MUCH bigger bitch.

You will need 2x 20mm sockets but I think that's in the FAQ. I also needed a 16mm crow foot spanner but that was for the linkage. Are you removing that as well?
