RTW servicing on a F650 GS, currently in Malaysia
I'm on a RTW trip and currently in Malaysia, where I'll service the bike for my onwards journey to Indonesia/Australia (2005 GS Dakar). I've got a couple of question which I hope someone here can help me out with:
- I need a new centre stand as the old one is bent & the lefthand side sometimes touches ground when cornering (left corners). Which side-stand can you recommend? Touratech? SW-Motech? Does BMW do one for the Dakar?
Only thing that's important to me: as much ground-clearance as possible.
- Is it worthwhile to change fork-oil after 30000 km? The bike's front is a bit wobbly, probably because of the heavy luggage on the back (about 70kg).
- Apart from the normal service (check valve clearances, change oil & filters,...): What else would you recommend I should do as a "20000 miles round the world service"? Clean the throttle body? New fuel filter (I had a few months of low quality/leaded fuel)? Anything else?
Thanks a lot!
