How are you trying to access the pdf's ? and what is the web page you are seeing each time ?
I managed to bend several of the front bashplate bolts where it goes into the frame. I had it tapped a size bigger (M8?) in the end to try to add a bit more strength.
No load, but they either stripped or snapped.

There's something not right when bolts break but cable ties don't?
Over tightened? Its only a little bolt.
I absolutely 'smashed' my bike for 2 hours this morning because I assumed my forks were given back to me with the same settings as when I put them in for service. Umm, no. Tyre was hitting mudguard on every jump, bash plate was crunching on the rocks, must have some serious dings in it now. Discovered the preload and compression on the rear needed everything there was, something not right there. And the forks needed 8 clicks and I was still 'bottoming out' landing off small jumps. Suspect lighter oil weight has been put in. But whatever,.... I spent two hours this morning with the bash plate hitting rocks at 30-50kph and the front bolt is still fine, I think? Seems to still be there!
Trying to open them in Google Drive (default for me), or open in a new tab. If I open in a new tab I get sent here: http://www.f650gs.crossroadz.com.au/AboutFiles.html
Think the GS fittings are M10x1.0
You cant save links to the pdf's in google drive or elsewhere to directly open them at a later time, you have to be viewing the crossroadz page to be able to open them, it is called leach control, if the pdf's were not protected I would have every scumbag EDoc mob linking to the pdf's and radically increasing the monthly bandwidth costs of the web site, some of them even try to charge money to open the pdf's.
There is a small list of valid forum sites where owners discuss the 650GS like advrider where links to PDF'S can be saved in posts but it is a small list
I disabled the extension that opened PDFs in Google Drive and now it works. I didn't try to save it to Drive but had an extension installed that opens files in Google Drive, with the only option being opening them in a new tab. I understand your site doesn't like seeing a request from Google Drive but I don't see why it would redirect me when opening in a new tab?
It is simple, that extension is attempting to leach the files as the extension is not viewing the file on the crossroadz page
magic i guess, can't really explain it. Lost the oem bolt somewhere and the ones after would either strip or brake. So started thinking about a better mount solution if i were to make a compartment like the one @TobyG has.
Just a standard M6 bolt, no magic there. But really, that should not break or rather it won't unless it has a reason.
Cutting a larger thread in the existing nut is an option, welding on an extra nut another.
My 'welded' nut on the back of the vertical sub-frame channel 'isn't ' and for the moment it's held on with metal two part epoxy and the tension of the bash plate bolt. But I'll probably drill it out and replace it with a 8mm steel, riveted 'Nutsert' next time I have the bash plate off. Same with the funky bolts that hold the lower part of the airbox to the sub-frame, put new 'riveted in' steel Nutserts in the sub-frame there too as one nut has come loose, and the other has a damaged thread.
Hello this is my 1st post to the forum I have a 2001 dakar And I am putting 2008 yz250f forks on it. I have tons of questions . What are you guys doing about your Ignition How are you Re locating it and where also I'm noticing that the seal on the top bearing of the triple clamp isn't seating all the way on the frame. I could see lots of dirt and water getting in there. Is anybody else running into that problem. Also the horn where did you relocate that. Trying to do a nice clean job at looks like a lot of you have already done it
Come over to the Yamaha Fork thread and we'll help you out. Everything you need is there, with lots of pictures too.
Came across this one on fb
I wonder what is fried so badly that he cant fix it a wiring harness is about £60 of Ebay if you are willing to wait a while.
Sad to see a low mileage 06 going to the parts graveyard
Probably got a quote from a dealer or repair shop. With labor I can imagine it wouldn't make fiscal sense.
in the comments he said the a dealer said he'd need 2000$ for the wiring + something else. Go figure, ehh
pity he isn't anywhere close, i'd take his engine
I'd love to take the whole bike off of him, you could easily double or triple the value of that here.
I'd even donate the wiring harness Damian gifted to me to scavenge a fuse box from. I couldn't do it. I couldn't make a whole wiring harness useless for the sake of a fuse box. I ended up putting re-settable circuit breakers in a hand made box. Wiring harness is as it was sent to me from Damian, and may need a little work(?), but I haven't found anything wrong with it yet. Would be easy to fix anyway, as it's off the bike in a bag!
