    Did you read all of the first post in this thread? You are not in exactly the right place on this forum.

    Much of this thread applies to the F700GS and this part is all about the F700:
    "The "658" & the "700" Threads specifically relating to the F650GS or F700GS Twin
    My new 2008 F650GS (twin) is here!
    F650GS twin aftermarket windshield
    F650GS (twin) spoke wheels
    Suz VStrom 650 vs BMW F650GS
    Worth the price to beef up a 650 twin?

    And much of what applies to the F800 also applies to the F700 (and F650). They all have the exact same engine (with different tuning), and share many other features. Suspension is the biggest difference between the F800 and F700/650.

    Just peruse the G-Spot area under "Parallel Universe" and you will find what you seek (and likely more than you would ever want or need).

    Does the 2012 F650GS Twin have M8 or M10 bolts for the sprocket?

    I'm away from the house but would like to buy from an inmate if they will work; thanks.

    This is the index thread (i.e. the repository for links that contain information on maintenance, repairs, and operations).

    It'd be best if you went to the linked section on the first page, found the general practice area your question pertains to, and look for the answer/post your question there. In your case, the "Powertrain: Engines, Throttles, Clutches, Gears, Sprockets & Chains"

    It'll help keep the index clean and avoid a soup-sandwich if unrelated questions/information.

    Thanks & ride safe,
