Your F650 has a lot of backlash in the drive train and your gear changes are becoming more and more noisy?

The little bastards pictured below are worn out which is easily recognisable from a lot of rotational play between the rear sprocket and the rear wheel (there should not be any play just some flex).

You can now go to BMW and buy replacements made from El Cheapo rubber, pay R271 a tot times three and fit them. Then you ride the bike until they perish again. Repeat :-\

Alternatively you buy those shown in the piccie. They are made from mechanically and chemically much stronger polyurethane (the stuff they make skateboard & fork lift  wheels from).
They fit 100% leaving no free play between the rubbers ,sprocket carrier and wheel hub.
Their (shore) hardness its identical to the OEM rubbers.
This means gearshift is smoother and chain lash is reduced not only increasing riding comfort but also the chain and sprockets service life.
They don't shrink, distort or wear not even if they come into contact with grease which is fairly unavoidable and which sets them apart from the OEM rubber ones. Rubber swells and softens in contact with mineral oils & most greases and it wears readily. See your tires for an example :D

R750 for the set of three. Available off the shelf. To fit F650GS (single) F650GS Dakar, G650GS, G650GS Sertao.
R800 for a set for the F650GS twin / F800GS.

R600 for the Yamaha XT660R / XT660X / XT660Z Tenere.l

I can mail them & Moondog in Gauteng stocks them!

Bulk orders / resellers please contact me  via e-mail or PM for prices.

You want them I make them.
Ideally bring the bike. I need to see how much play the original ones have, measure shore hardness & make a mold with changed shape to take up the excessive play.
The mold manufacture is non destructive towards your original cush drive rubbers in case you still want to use them.

I can even make them in Yamaha blue :D

I now also have cush drive dampers for the Yamaha XT660R and XT660Z Tenere.

At R600 they are more expensive than the OEM replacements (R320) but they should pay for themselves easily by outlasting the OEM rubbers by a few times. Not to mention savings from longer service life of chain & sprockets.
