    I just brought back this 2016 G 650 GS, looks pretty good because it has 1,287 miles on it.

    The ride home put on the last 100. I was wondering what are the hot button items to check considering the low usage over the last four years. The oil was just done as was the fuel pump
    that seemingly suffered from the long sleep.

    Runs like a champ, more power than I had expected, front brakes seem a little anemic but I am used to my 1200 GS so that might be it.

    No manual came with it but that is online, anything else come to mind?

    Thanks!

    Copy Post #1, start a new thread in Thumpers, and use "paste" to create a new Post #1. This one will die.
