Wrong sparkplug ends on pic #2?
i am still trying to calculate it. but i am thinking 800 to 1k out the door. that is of course, counting the valve adjust with the shims. but i will let you know. what would your local shop charge for the same service?
btw, the GS911 will not specify that a kill switch is bad. but it may say something like power interruption to bmsk control unit. then you would have to start checking backwards from there. at least it will start you in the right direction. and again, if you are at hotel and your combi switch goes out, with out GS911 your paying a tow bill to god knows where at the mercy of who knows. in case you cannot tell, i am a huge fan of this unit. it puts us more in control of our own fate and not so dependant on the dealers.
your right. i owe you a beer!
Is that a timing mark on the stator I see? I'm sure I couldn't find one on mine wondering what that top plug cap would be for if it wouldn't have one. It was late and I was rushed to finish, but my mate had a quick look at it as well.
Awesome post. Cheers for the time spend on it.
Thanks for dragging it up, Durangoman.
I just saw this. Very impressed, but I still may let the shop do mine...:eek1
Any way to get the photos to show again? I would love to print this out and keep it in my file for the bike!
Yeah where did the photos disappear to!? I bookmarked this and now I'm past 12k and was thinking about doing this myself.
Any help would be appreciated! Thanks for posting all of this btw!
I had this topic saved on my HDD...
I uploaded the files here: http://dl.transfer.ro/The_Anatomy_Of_A_F650gs_Dakar_12k_Service-transfer_RO-11may-f45626.rar
Just save them somewhere on your PC and double click the .html file.
I'm not sure for how long the archive will stay there, hopefully the regular images from the topic will appear again.
They are gone again. Are they available anywhere else???? Thanks, Ken
The pics are gone and the download link is dead - I'm happy to host a rar/zip file permanently on my own website if someone will provide me with a copy of it.
I have a .pdf of a print of this thread before the images were lost. It's 82mb though! Don't know if this will be helpful or not. PM sent to Blokette.
If Mikerson can get the PDF to Blokette, we can all download from the website (or maybe find an upload site to use).
Could always toss it on somewhere like dropbox and share the link.... or Mediafire.
Blokette was generous enough to let me ftp her that file since it was so large. Hopefully she can host it for all of you. I know this thread was a big help for me when I did my 12k service! I'll also look into some other sites to host it.
Can anybody transfer the thread thru wetransfer.com, very simple use, and secure. I may provide my e-mail if any volunteer out there...
PM me please if you have a copy..
