    You have not found the bearing that it came out of? KTM is known to drop some extra parts in their motors when assembling. With GG and their siestas, nothing is out of the question.

    F650gs built to take a beating?! By who? A beginner granny on twisty pavement? Only thing good about that bike is the motor. Back when my dad got back into motorcycles he bought one. As bad as it was to ride it was 100 times worse to work on. It made a ktm 950 seem super simple to work on... which is no small feat, those things are a nightmare! But I fully understand that people buy into marketing, it’s nothing to be ashamed of :augie

    Ya know what I’d be a bigger fan of than you and BMW... if you could stop using iPhone or Android emoji’s or whatever you’re using. They don’t show up. It’s triggering my millennial mind pretty hardcore......

    Correct, have not found the bearing. I may run it all over to a second set of eyes for a sanity check.

    Nothing like designing something that requires special tools to work on it.

    Lets not forget aboot doing a wear item, like the clutch.

    The best use for a 650GS motor would be to stick it in a 640 E or A. That would be an interesting Frankenbike.

    A torque wrench isn’t a special tool. It’s a friggen necessity.
    Specially tools are only needed for one brand of vehicle, or worse, one model of one brand.
