Hi all, will the rear shock from a 2010 f650gs fit a 2000 f650gs?
According to the MAX BMW parts list yes. https://shop.maxbmw.com/fiche/PartsSearch.aspx?&searchtype=undefined&parts=31 42 7 728 375
That’s great news, thank you
Welcome to the forum and enjoy a great bike.
Thanks, it’s my first bike, I can’t wait to get the replacement shock in and start riding.
The dedicated F650 forum is; http://f650.com/forum/forum.php They have several members from down under. Another one from your part of the world; http://www.crossroadz.com.au/F650GS/index.html
Thanks for the tips, really appreciate it.
Would it not be more accurate to say that the shock from a 2010 G650GS will fit a 2000 F650GS? In 2010 the F650GS was the twin cylinder bike and its shock is entirely different.
You are correct. I just ran the part number search and never noticed the G650 in it.
Thank you, I’m completely new to the BMW world and didn’t realise the 2010 was a twin cylinder. I have now found a place that should be able to rebuild mine. Fingers crossed they can fix it, I should know in a few days.
Really appreciate the help.
The f650 single became the g650 and new f650 twin was actually 800cc. It has caused so much confusion it makes me wonder about a company that would do such a thing.
You have two of the best suspensions and spring rates available to you on both sides of the contenent: Wilbers and Ohlins are both available.
Most of our customers who keep their 650's for exploring Burma to Mongolia, typically rave over the O friction springs in front by Wilbers, and the The rear shocks from Ohlins with remote pre load and tank.
Do your self a favor, change out the swing arm and linkage bearings, change the Fork oil, bushings and seals, and have the time of your life!!
