    All 650's What is the best practice to ADD coolant?

    So I just realized coolant reservoir/expansion tank is dryer than a COVID-19 cough! I have no leakage as far as I could check. How should I bleed air out and add more coolant to the system? What I have in mind: - Top it up from Rad Cap, Shake/move the bike side to side to burp, and let it run...

    All 650's Rear ABS kicks in pretty easily

    Hey Folks, I press rear brake at 20 km and ABS kicks in milliseconds without any hesitation. Stopping power is also rubbish. I have cleaned the disks but not the pads, and not sure if they are contaminated. My brake caliper is not fully tight and it has a little bit of play?! All the bolts seem...

    Hi Gents, I have scavenged the forum to find a decent explanation on how to properly block the Air Supply Hose that feeds the PAIR system without going through all the hassles of removing the solenoid and installing plates on the reeds and etc. and I had no luck! What I've found form visiting...

    All 650's Why Changing Levers?

    looks aside, what justifies the hassle, risk and cost involved in changing Brake and Clutch levers? Why some come with adapters and some don't? Does it need to be changed by a professional or I can do it myself? Cheers Sam

    CB650F Rear Wheel does not spin freely in neutral!?

    Hi to my lovely fellows! I noticed the issue when I jacked up the bike to clean up my chain. The back wheel has some "friction/rubbing" spots (every 120 degrees) and it does not roll smoothly in neutral. I keep it in an enclosed underground parking with overhead heating pipes but the chain and...

    Handlebar twist

    Halo folks, Do you recommend twisting the handle bar and adjusting the grips to gain a little more upright position? As far as I can tell, if I twist it towards myslef, everything would be sitting 2-3 cm closer. Then I have to twist grips and accessories back to their default position. Is it as...

    Halo, What do you guys think about drilling few holes on the exhaust tank to (just) gain a better sound. Has anyone ever tried? any ideas about performance issues or damage to the engine? I'm also concern about voiding the warranty. It sounds amazing while saving $1500+ CAD.
