    Default 2006 BMW F650GS - advice please

    A quick question. A 2006 BMW F650GS bike with 90,000 odo and in good condition with service history. Is this considered too high mileage, or can I expect to put another 50,000 k's on that engine?

    These bike are pretty much bullet proof. Two things you need to check:

    - Steering neck bearings. They tend to go. Not a train smash and a reasonably easy fix, but can be pricey.
    - Water pump drive gear. They fail on occasion. A bit more complex to fix and pricey.

    Overall it should run quite well up to 140 000km and beyond. The main factor is, price now.

    Spent my therapy money on a K1200S
    Therapy must have worked, bought a GS
    Insanity crept back in, in the shape of an R1200R
