They have been used in numerous countries including the U.S.

Perhaps the dealer could learn to read his fiche & as per dealers I have dealt with, order in the parts when in doubt, or talk to his BMW Rep I mean these are low cost parts so he did not have large $ at risk

It is crazy when we can read the fiche better than the dealer, there really is no excuse

Judging from some Danish folks i knew a couple of years ago, throwing money at every problem and accumulating unneeded stuff aren't in their national character as much as they are in the English speaking colonies...

True :P

but the dealer actually did order a part home that we thought was it, no charge off course. After that i went to this forum :P

They were willing to keep going but it was to painful to watch

Yes watching some in dealers navigate the fiche can be painful at times, years ago we had a top notch spares manager who knew his way around the old mechanical fiche & could match up parts between models he was a marvel

Later when I first purchased the Dakar a spares person ordered in a pile of parts including centre stand only to find they were for the GS not Dakar and had to do a return to sort it out

2005 Dakar Front Brake Lever

Where's the best aftermarket place to order a set of levers for my Dakar. Broke the brake lever on an off road ride last week and want to get a new one and a spare of each.

Does anyone have a spare brake lever they want to sell ASAP as I have another ride this weekend. I really don't want to have to drive to the dealer 70 miles away. Since they are not open any evenings and would need to take 1/2 of vacation to get there.

Also, who makes a sturdy Bark Buster that won't allow my levers to break during a slow drop. The OEM version are not very robust.

Thanks in advance for your advice!

I broke two clutch levers when I had the Toura-Tech hand guards that came on the bike. I have some Acerbis now, and though they don't block the wind as nicely, they are very robust!

Will you be at the Bucky? I'll be there.

Stalling :(

Hi, I have a 2004 twinspark Dakar.

I have searched long and hard for months trying to find an answer all over the web. The chain gang doesnt have an answer.

Basically I have narrowed it down to the inductive sensor?

The symptoms.
- it stalls on idle
- when sitting at the lights in fluctuates between 1100-1500 rpm
- when doing a lazy gear down it will cut out
- it doesn't always happen, but usually about 75% of the time

- it usually stalls after about 5 seconds after the first start then runs fine or it begins the symptoms above

I tried in plugging the lambda sensor and running it.. No help.
If these problems occur and I hold the revs at 1550/1600 it runs fine, it performs fine riding it as well.
Some more checks I have conducted is holding the clutch in whilst rolling with the unusual revving and then stopping, result is that it seems to go back to normal revving.

So from all my research it sounds to me as the inductive sensor as this is what governs the idle rpm? Please some one shed light on this!!!

Sincerely Dominic.

Pootrol, before looking at a component failure read the info in the link below, it has been discussed here and at f650 before and has solved problems for a number of people here and elsewhere
