1997 BMW F650ST Dual-Sport Motorcycle - $4,000

The Swiss army knife of motorcycles, this 1997 BMW F650ST is ready for anything!

Overview:
- Year: 1997
- Model: BMW F650ST
- Mileage: 24,096
- Condition: Great
- Price: $4,000

Description:
When I purchased this dual-sport motorcycle in 2009 it had only 8,000 miles. Over the past 15 years, I’ve added another 16,000 miles while slowly making modifications and upgrading parts to suit my style of adventure riding and motorcycle camping.

Features + Modifications:
- Upgraded to taller GS bars
- Acerbis Handguards (large + small plastics)
- Heated grips
- RAM foldable mirrors
- RAM phone mount
- LED headlight/taillight bulbs
- LED turn signals
- LED aux lights
- New 49 tooth rear sprocket (for increased torque)
- New 16 tooth front sprocket
- New Kenda K761 tires
- Happy Trails skid plate
- Wolfman tank bag
- Custom Watershed panniers
- BMW hard case mounting brackets
- Custom rear tool storage (opposite exhaust)
- Aux wiring for heated jacket + accessories
- Off-road footpegs (extra-wide)
- BMW under-seat tool kit
- Recent service including carb rebuild
- New battery
- Battery tender
- Two keys
- Spare bulbs
- Garmin Oregon 300 GPS with RAM mount
- Clymer service + repair manual
- Complete 15-year service history

Additional Information:
Unlike the Funduro, which has a 19” front wheel, the ST features 18” front and 17” rear wheels. The seat height is just over 30”.

This bike is an elegant combination of German, Italian, and Austrian heritage. It has a BMW badge but is really a re-branded Aprilia Pegaso. The 650cc Rotax engine is rock-solid and quite smooth for a single-cylinder, with plenty of power through the entire RPM range.

Built before fuel injection became widespread, this bike features a dual-carburetor fuel-delivery system, which makes maintenance in the field much easier.

The bike recently had a complete service and needs nothing. It comes with many extras, modifications, and custom upgrades and has always been garage-kept.

Reason for Selling:
I am selling this bike because of some ongoing health challenges. While I am sad to part with this wonderful machine, I am glad to be able to pass it on to someone who will appreciate its elegant simplicity.

Community Support:
The BMW F650 is well-supported by a great community of riders from all over the world. On f650.com you can learn anything you need to know about servicing, modifying, or upgrading your bike + lots more! And on Facebook, there is a growing community of enthusiasts eager to offer their insight, experience, and knowledge.
