The idea behind the BMW F650 was to attract new, younger customers who, once they’d sampled the high-quality of BMW’s products and dealer network, would be likely to buy another. But perhaps the most revolutionary aspect of the BMW F650 was its final drive: for the first time a BMW motorcycle did not have shaft drive. Heresy of heresies! It had a nasty, messy, inefficient chain. It didn’t matter; BMW sold over 30,000 F650s in the first three model years before introducing the more touring orientated ST, seen as a pure roadster where the original bike purported to have some off-road capability. Perhaps the most radical BMW F650 was the street version of the fuel-injected GS, the CS. In this Haynes BMW F650 manual we will show you how to maintain and repair your BMW motorcycle with confidence and care.
