    CB650R The clutch feel so heavy

    Translation: Out of interest, what cable did you replace it with? My wife has the same complaint as you. The clutch is very heavy. I want to repair it. @Motojack and @Leon752 please keep the public posts in English so others can follow along. :)

    Gear What helmet(s) do you wear?

    There’s something weird going on because I’ve NEVER heard of an Arai falling apart like that. Had you not sent it in I’d be skeptical that it’s a fake but if you sent it into Arai they must have have looked at it enough to determine it wasn’t. What do they say about it? Again, it being a...

    Gear What helmet(s) do you wear?

    Wow, very surprised to hear a premium lid, that was sent back to them to fix even, is falling apart so soon. Arai is well known to be basically the best of the best so this is very surprising to read. I’ve always had great luck with Shoei if I’m buying a higher end helmet, otherwise I’ve had...

    CBR650F Cbr650f power

    Tons of pipe info already on the forum so search a bit but know it’s not a SuperSport and will always be a sub-100hp bike no matter what you do to it. If you want more punch drop your gearing a bit and you’ll lose done top speed but gain some pep down low but again, it’s not a 600RR and will...

    Which oil is best

    The official site line is: whatever is in the manual is what’s recomended. If you want to go into alternatives, there are several threads with a TON of info in it, more than you ever cared to know, on what oil to choose and why. Just join one of those and ask away.

    CBR650F Insane front brake drag

    I don’t and have never had issues with squeaking. If I did, I’d use copper grease.

    CBR650F Insane front brake drag

    The reservoir is marked with a minimum and maximum line, there should be no reason not to know if it’s the right amount in there or not. The service manual linked in the resources section will also be a big help to you. Cost. The bike was built to a budget and the brakes are one of the areas to...

    All 650Rs DISCOLOURED HEAD

    Your dealership doesn’t know and is covering their butts. If you have pics of the bike before you brought it to them, show them it was fine before.

    Bolt for shifter linkage?

    It will be tricky and as I said earlier DO NOT put any pressure on the shaft pushing inwards or you’ll be very unhappy.

    Bolt for shifter linkage?

    I think normally this would work but because the bolt was threaded on the splines it will have too much tension on it. When my RR did the same thing I first tried what you describe it wasn’t the pinching force holding the bolt in but the fact it was threaded onto the shaft. Once I cut the arm it...

    Bolt for shifter linkage?

    No. What I’m saying is cut the black gearshift arm along the halfway point on the shaft so the chunk with the broken bolt comes off and rest falls down. Do not cut the shift linkage. Yes, see @Brammers picture. Once you pull it apart it will make sense. I don't know how else to describe it...

    Bolt for shifter linkage?

    Based on the pic I’m thinking you broke the bolt after installing the shift support device? The arm does not go all the way against the support, it it closer to flush with the end of the shaft and the bolt rides in a groove on the shaft. That way even if the bolt loosens up the arm won’t fall...

    Bolt for shifter linkage?

    If it were my bike, and knowing that I did the same thing to a CBR600RR and broke the shift keeper tab and had to pull the clutch cover and clutch basket to fix it( not hard but a PITA), I would cut the arm with a dremel and buy a new one. The 650 has the same setup: a $3 part that you gave to...

    CBR650F Insane front brake drag

    I don’t know of anyone in 45 years plus of riding and repairing motorcycles that have replaced a brake line unless it’s failed or upgrading to steel lines. The book also recommends replacing your coolant hoses as well but again I’ve never known anyone to do it until it breaks or hardens. Just...

    All 650Rs DISCOLOURED HEAD

    As @Brammers said I think I remember it as well. Seems to me like the dealer used a cleaning product that f-ed up the paint and is covering their butt. Find the thread on here and bring it to their attention.

    CBR650F Insane front brake drag

    Absolutely nothing wrong with the Nissin calipers on the bike as it comes so no reason to call them shitty because they are not. You‘ve done most of what I would have and i find about 1 revolution is not uncommon on done bikes. If the front wheel in correctly? Are the bearing in the wheel good...

    All 650Rs DISCOLOURED HEAD

    Can you clarify what you’re saying and asking a bit and give us some insight on what led up to this? I see your cylinder head appears to have severely overheated and baked the pain off it but we have no other symptoms or back story.

    CBR650F Replacing alternator cover advice

    You’re going to lose so little oil I wouldn’t worry about it too much. @Brammers is saying what’s in the area will dribble out, not that it will keep draining. The oil pan is lower than the alternator area. Don’t make it more daunting than it it. The one BIG piece of advice for you on the...
