Wonky,

I sent you an email a little while back and never got a response either. Sounds like you might be having email trouble. I just ended up sending you a PM, instead.

Sidenote...

When will you have more luggage plates in stock?

im having problems clearing the email account as i dont seem to be able to wipe mail off the server, but we're still getting a steady flood of emails.
If anybody else on here has mailed adventure-spec but not got a response please PM me and let me know.
Ive got the plates and spacers in, just waiting on a delivery of bolts from a new supplier, im thinking wednesday.

bash plate

Hey wonky I sent you an email as well which must have gotten lost. Also I have had my second bash plate bonefire this weekend.. is anyone else having issues? This time accumulated fescu grass lit up inside the bashplate whilst driving through hay fields (last time it was dry leaves).

My bladder is full but sadly not big enough to coup with repated fires....

Find some sort of high-temp filler material to close up the gap.

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

Interesting issue! TT offers this for the BMW plate, maybe something similar, that blocks the holes but lets air through: http://www.touratech-usa.com/shop/sh...o?sku=048-0460

Thumb Crash bars

Bolted up the Adv-Spec bars today. Nice directions. Couldn't get the left 100mm bolt in with the bushing. Hole in the bushing looked centred so I'm guessing the hole in the frame was a smidge off. Drilled out the engine end of the supplied bushing a tad and it all went together like butter. Was worried about leg room but you don't even notice the bars are there. Super nice product.

Adventure Spec Crash Bars and Skid Plate

Received my skid plate, crash bars and rear rack the other day. Quality stuff. Crash bars...Bee Feeee! Everything went together well and was delivered very quickly. Highly recommend their products.

Can someone tell me the total cost of the Adventure-Spec crash bars and bash plate for U.S. customers? I have been trying to contact them via e-mail and PM, but no response. I really like these items best of all those I have seen, but cost is an issue.

Thanks for your help, Kevin

Hey Kevin,

In the upper left corner of the Adv-Spec page on the guards you'll see a box labeled "Currency." Choose "US Dollars" and uncheck "VAT is on."

Thanks guys, I did finally get an e-mail back from Adventure Spec. (It was only 2 days) I am just not very patient right now, cuz I just got this F800GS and don't want to ride it off-road 'till I get the crash bars and skid plate! I guess I am just too excited!

Finaly instaled mine!
These shure look like they can handle a fall!

Just one note!
I'm not that tall (1.85m / 6' 0.8"), with the low seat, and my knees bump against the crash bars!
It's not that serious, but when not using kneepads, sometimes it get's ruff on bumpy roads!

Taller people..... Beware!

At almost 6'1" you shouldn't have the low seat.

I'm 6'1" and I need to lower my pegs. I have the standard seat.
