Repairs and Fault Finding


General Information and Disclaimer

The information provided here includes procedures which require workshop experience and mechanical skills.

Every effort has been made to ensure the information is accurate and correct, but you use it at your own risk.

Crossroadz promotes safe motorcycling and properly performing fault finding and repairs is essential to safety.

Crossroadz does not endorse work which voids warranties so we encourage you to ensure any work you do is of the highest quality, does not void your warranty and most importantly, is safe.

If you have any doubts about your ability to complete any of the procedures we recommend printing the information sheet and engaging a qualified and experienced mechanic or engineer to complete the work on your behalf.
The cost will be insignificant compared to the risk of not being able to complete the work yourself.

The information here does not provide details on standard BMW procedures, it is assumed the BMW procedures are known or the workshop manual is at hand.

The information is intended as a supplement to the BMW procedures. In some cases adding information lacking in the BMW documentation and in other cases providing information on alternative parts.

Good sources of information are f650.com, online fiche and forum threads. RealOEM.com is useful to check what other models share the same parts as the GS. Some sub assemblies are not shown as separate GS parts but are available separately on other models. Hand Grips are an example.
The fault finding items which are too often ignored are getting and recording the firmware version of the BMSC and checking for any fault codes with a GS911 or other diagnostics tools. It can save considerable time in fault finding.
