For Sale / GSX650F Parts
« Last post by poppi1049 on March 04, 2018, 08:04:56 PM »

I move house in 10 days, & have to declutter. To that end I've got a Suzuki centre stand, Power bronze hugger in gloss black, & a standard screen all from a 15 plate GSX650F.

Make me an offer or I'll have to dusty bin the lot.
Chain Maintenance / Re: Chain adjustment on centre stand or is paddock stand required?
« Last post by IanG on January 23, 2018, 07:53:59 AM »
You need some weight on the bike to get the correct adjustment so side stand or a paddock stand is alright but the centre stand gives to much slack for the adjustment and will cause you to over adjust the chain for when it has weight back on making it too tight, I only use my centre stand 1-2 times a year and that's only when giving the chain a good clean or taking out the rear wheel
Saw a Youtube video suggesting to always adjust chain using a paddock stand.
What to you guys think? Is it OK to adjust when on centre stand or do I need to get a paddock stand?

So after 12 months on a triumph tiger 800 i am back on a gsx 650f and boy have i missed it !
This is now my 3rd 650 and after 12 months away i had forgotten how much fun they were.
Glad to be back  :laughing7:   
Hi all,

Really loving my GSF1250s Bandit, two up with heaps of gear (including the kitchen sink) didn't even notice the weight pulling up the mountains.

Finally got around to uploading some video of a fantastic trip around the South Island of New Zealand. Great weather most of the time for late autumn.

Not much talking just the odd comment to my partner riding on the back or music, apart from at the start. Just the bike, amazingly beautiful scenery and awesome roads. Lord of the Rings filmed around this area.

Will add more video when I can.

Still learning how to set up Youtube channel :)

Oh well, no replies, I am bgoing to go for it as motorcycleplanet describe it as fitting a 2010 - 2016 model.

Now to decide whether to get a givi / kappa box and mount on to my givi plate or buy a cheapo top box with universal plate and drill holes to make it fit on to the monorack arms
Panniers & Luggage / Givi 539FZ rack arms

I have decided to add a top box to my 2016 GSX 1250FA and am looking on the web, I already have an unused M5 monokey plate, so am looking for the rack arms and a top box

Are the above rack arms suitable for my 2016 1250 FA, as all the descriptions seem to say they are suitable for either the 650 07 - 11  or the 1250 up to 2014.

Now I would imagine the design of bike did not change from 2014 onwards, but dont want to spend £80 on something that does not fit.

Any other suggestions would be appreciated, I have noticed that Kappa boxes seem to be  cheaper and will fit on to my Givi M5 plate

Hi all. The time has come to sell my 1250. It's a lovely bike with nice extras and only 11k miles on the clock.
I'm looking for sensible offers over £3000. I've priced it competitively as need the room and don't want too much hassle.
Any questions feel free to ask. Located in South Staffordshire.

Some photos here on Facebook.
