My comment regarding BMW-on-call is - when I needed them, they came, gave them the GPS coords for Breedtsnek and the tech found us and fixed the bike.  So from my perspective - it rocks!  :thumbright:

mountainboy,

I found three maintenance DVD├?┬┤s on the Chain Gang website with lots of infor  on F650 (f650.com).  Unfortunately it takes a lot of time to download, but someone on this forum might have it and be able to send you copies.

wouldn├?┬┤t mind sending you a set, but I live in Spain.


Good stuff Rey

will def look into that!!

So does anyone have copies of those DVd's I could possibly get,buy or simply copy??

I've got a copy. PM me your details and I'll send them to you

Pad.

Sorry if I sound like a KTM rider, but BMW on call does NOT fix flats and if your bike is less than 100km from u home. Forgive me if I am wrong but when I bought my 1200GS in 2005 the dealer told me to study the booklet about BMW on call.

I never used them but some forum members here (MJ) had GREAT service from them.

Fixing a flat is something you have to do yourself cos its going to happen often. 8)

Agreed but I had the battery problem 300 km's from home

Mountainboy,
 I started a thread at www.650.com asking about changing tyres. The thread is located here http://f650.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=208516 and the fouth post has links to tyre changing videos on YouTube. Maybe this will help.
