Thanks for the update AMGrrr. I wonder if its the same loom rerouted or a new loom.
That's a great question perhaps they re-routed because they had to shorten it.
Is there anyone with a Swm superdual 650 with around 15000km on it.... ( less than 16000 km )
I have a problem with waranty at the moment. ( long story )
But one of the oilfilters inside the case exploded on startup... now the dealer tells me this is a service problem because i was am at 17000km and the service had to be done 2k ago..
I did it myself at 16000km right before i did a 1500km trip,and now i am "f*cked" cause it always has to be done by a dealer for warranty....
This is not the right way, but i find it weird that one of those filters would explode because of pressure.
Especially because the bike runs very wel... no bogging or stalling etc.
DM me if you can and want to help me.
sorry for the weird english...
I cannot help with the warranty information but I can say that when I had a 2011 TE630 there was talk of the long cylinder mesh filter near the bottom of the motor below the countershaft coming apart. I did not have the issue but I replaced mine anyway at 5,000 miles. I thought there was a newer or updated version of that filter but I could be wrong, it has been a while. Was this the same filter you have issues with?
Your English is fine I spent 2 years in Belgium and its better than my French!
As far as I know there was a recall on this strainer/filter. Mine was replaced by the dealer.
Edit. Did the split mesh strainer cause any other damage?
Some AJP PR7's (maybe all) also have a recall for one of the mesh filters. I am not 100% sure but it sounds like the same one.
Thnx for the reply. (all of you)
Well i am waiting for the dealer to send me the list of damaged parts...he was talking about parts needed to be replaced because of damaging...
It's not going to be nice, but if it is indeed the filter you all are talking about, and if there was a recall (maybe), then i maybe have something to back it up with ( is that a saying? )
Not sure what filter it exactly is at the moment, i am still waiting for the dealer to send photo's etc....
Haha thnx! my French is probably worse than yours !
I have a feeling that the strainer replaced under warranty is number 20 here. Could be wrong though.
Thnx for the advice, i will check with my dealer if this is the case!
Really appreciate all the answers !
I believe #20 is the correct one I remember it being the larger one but I thought it was from the left side of the engine? I can't be sure it has been a while but it was the big mesh filter.
What is you symptom of the problem? Hope it works out for the best. Oui Oui!
Does anyone have any tips for getting these threaded inserts out of the handle bars, could not shift them with a shifter.
Ring spanner or socket. Mine came out without any issues. Maybe yours have a bit of Loctite on them?
Definitely ring spanner or socket. Don't use an open ended spanner or shifter.
Mine were tight but after cracking it, they spun off easy.
I'll give the ring spanner a go. I don't have the right size spanner so it'll be a weekend job now! I couldn't get the socket to bite on such a small face.
Well the symptom was as follow: Came back from a 1500km ride.. no problems at all, no weird sounds, no bogging... nothing!
placed the bike in the garage.. 2 hours later came back to pick something up from the store... started up the bike, and as soon as it fired up, i heard i "metal clunk"... and than it sounded like having a meatl jarr full of bearing balls and shaking it......
turned it off immediatly.. and that's it so far. sounded like it came from the right engine side..
If I'm not mixing things up the filter screen was on the right side behind the clutch. Cant remember where I heard about it. Probably here.
Keep us updated MotoSly on how you get on and what damage if any was caused.
I will, hope to get some photo's from the dealer too!
