40nm for the bolt(s) in question, according to the service manual.


The forward bolt (2/3 on your diagram) is listed at 66nm. NOTE*** The service manual says the top motor mount bolt is 66Nm. That seems too high, and in practice, you can feel the bolt stretching before reaching that point. Use prudence. The lower bolts, at 38nm.

Just ordered my adv spec crash bars yesterday. Looks like they are saying 4 weeks out. Was waiting to hear if they worked with the BMW bash plate or not and trying to get the 4 weeks to land after X-mas. Glad to hear they do work with the BMW bashplate. Great product.

I just installed my SW-Motech bars and when removing bolt #4 in the diagram shown above, I noticed it couldn't have been torqued on very hard. Maybe 20nm max. It came out pretty easily. Not exactly a comforting discovery...

GiT rear rack?

Any word on production of the rear rack?

Looks like its going to be a nice one. It'd be clever if it came with a couple spacers for each post, so you could adjust the level of the rack in relation to your panniers. Say for example, 15mm and 25mm spacers for the frontward posts, to give you a range of between 15mm and 40mm. Front and rear posts would have to be different heights to get the rack level fore n' aft.

Here's a great pic by everywherevirtually, where you can see the prototype, and also shows how well the A-S bars protect the bike!

F800GS crash bars

Got my bars today from the DHL man. How is it the good folks at Adventure-Spec can ship from England to Canada faster than most domestic sites?
Package arrived nicely wrapped. Still had a few chips in the powder coat in 3 or 4 spots but nothing I can't deal with.
These things are beefy! I weighed them at almost 13 1/2 lbs.
All the welds look great.
Supposed to get my bike Feb. 15th then I'll install them.
Canadian buyers should know that I was charged 41$ COD for duty and tax.

Love my ADv Spec crash bars. They arrived in about three weeks around X-mas time. They arrived wrapped in foam, paper, and plastic. No chips at all and they went on easy with everything fitting as it should. I like the look of them too and the protection is solid as stated before..... they are beefy. Great product.

fit like a glove

Purchased my bars and sump guard, deliverd in about ~1.5 weeks, one pc chip but I suspect the customs agents opened the box as it was mostly packing tape and little cardboard when I picked it up at DHL. installation was easy.

I also noticed that the stock bolts were not torqued properly.???

Good work guys!!

bashplate/fireplace

I installed the adv spec crash bars and GiT bashplate on my 800GS. Crash bars work great in the field but have a question about the bash plate-

At one point during a trail ride in the woods my buddy drew my attention to the growing bushfire merrily crackling away inside my bashplate: You can see the soot on the pipes below




Question: any suggestions (other than don't ride wooded trails with dry leaves") on how to avoid torching myself in the future?

thanks

Missing hardware in my Kits!

I ordered two sets of Adventure Spec crash bars and bash plates. They sure look beefy, but I would not know how strong they are as both sets were missing hardware needed for the installation. I emailed Chris and he said he'd send the missing hardware. Well that was a month ago. Still no hardware. I've emailed 3 more times with no responses. There must be problem with the email somewhere, since every one else has had great responses.

That is weird. I e-mailed them a couple times. Always got a response right away.

They have some other products that I wouldn't mind buying, but when you tend to treat customers like they're a pain in the ass they tend to take their business elsewhere.
