I bought this basically to learn more about these since I am a new owner of a Burg 650 . I now know pretty much how to take them apart from the plastics down to the last bits on the motor / engine . I have one word to describe working on a 650 Burg ........TEDIOUS ! If you have the patients , the tools and the manual you can repair these yourself even the catastrophic failures . I forgot to mention you'll need lots of room to put all these parts as you remove them .looks pretty good, i'd like to clean mine in a few miles more, just to learn how to take it apart.
Now that I know where every thing is on these I feel better , I hate it when some thing goes wrong and I'm in the dark about it . The MOST important thing I learned is I don't want to work on the Burg 650 , maybe some minor tasks but not a total take down for a catastrophic failure . Guys like LaDude and MJR etc must have the patients of Job . Also you hear about these 3 & 4 thousand dollar repair bills , truth be told that's not all that bad for the amount of work that's involved . The question is , is your burg worth the repair bill ? I have my doubts on repairing one of these that already have a lot of miles on them .
If a person wants to keep his higher mile scoot , I think he would be better off buying a super low mileage wreck and replacing the entire drive train . Or take the plastics off the one with the failure and putting them on the wreck ?
