    All 650's Wheel Cleaner

    Morning folks, Could I have some recommendations on some good wheel cleaners that would be safe on the paint on our wheels? I have some I use on the car but I can't convince myself it wouldn't take to paint off. Ideally I'm looking for something that's pretty 'hands off' as obviously there's...

    All 650's Paint Detailing

    I use AutoGlym Polar Collection for 'regular' washes - you have to be careful of using the Polar Seal on anything you need to grip but for everywhere else its great, easy to use and doesn't cost a bomb - but then I don't tend to let my bike get real dirty - I can imagine if you commute you might...

    All 650Rs Which disc lock (that fits under pillion seat/cowl)?

    He's great, but the trouble is you'd never end up buying anything cos he gets in everything 😄

    All 650Rs Which disc lock (that fits under pillion seat/cowl)?

    I have a Oxford Alpha XA14 - fits fine under the sear with the toolkit in place - I also bring along my Oxford Boss as well if I am parking in a 'unknown' area. The XA14's paint has been wearing off though from rattling around under the seat.

    All 650's Sump Plug

    There will always be an argument for and against - I've always used them on my cars, I'd like to use them on my bikes too. For me its the extra bit of protection considering they are cheap enough, the oil is shared with the gearbox and the sort of rpm's the bike does - I'll use it as another...

    All 650's Sump Plug

    I'm going a oil/filter change and whilst I don't suspect a problem & agree fully the filter should do the job, for the expense I think its a nice 'just in case' to have.

    Hi folks, Does anyone know where I could get a magnetic sump plug for my 650R? or know the tread/size details so I could find a universal one? Thanks

    All 650's Warning Chinese levers

    I have been thinking about getting some adjustable ones has I have short dumpy fingers and find the clutch bite is right on the bounce of either the leaver or my fingers - not ideal for smooth progress. Bringing the leaver closer to the bar would help (as it did with the front brake) so this...

    CB650R Mirror Disassembly

    JDude - unfortunately I only got your reply this morning. I broke the mirror. The main problem seems to be the mirror is stuck to a foam pad, which is in turn stuck to the inside of the mirror housing, combine this with the mirror glass being a snap fit inside out housing any sort of leverage...

    CB650R Mirror Disassembly

    Hi folks, So after a minor laying down I bent the stem of one of my mirrors. I have bought a second hand replacement, however its a little more marked up than I'd like. Has anyone taken apart the actual mirror assembly? I'm assuming, on initial inspection the stem is bolted to the mirror back...

    CB650R Hello from England

    Hi folks, Passed my DAS course before Christmas and finally collected my CB650R last weekend - my first bike. I picked 'Wilf' up from a Triumph dealer - having gone with the intention of ordering a Trident 660 - but this was sitting in the 'Used' section and was perfect - plenty of options...
