The lower seat makes it easy to put your foot down when falling, i'm not used to such an heavy bike, and i need full foot suport to avoid falling!
Tough i guess it's a matter of time ( and €.... still got to buy the panniers first!), until i swap this seat for a standard one from touratech.

Chris,

From your site:"The guard can be easily removed for oil changes and the front bracket only needs one nut losening and rotating (NOT removing) to change the oil filter. We're very proud of our new design and would love to hear any feedback about it should you choose to buy one."

Would you please post a picture of how this is done, or better still a Youtube video link

And do you have it and the crash bars are in stock?

Hey all,

I've got a brand new Adv-Spec bash plate for sale here in the US, if you're interested.

Could be convinced to part with the crashbars as well, though they've done well and can NOT be faulted. Evolving ideas of luggage has me wanting to go to tank panniers, which I can't quite see working with the Adv-Spec crash bars. Definitely torn, as these crash bars are worthy.

Rob in Seattle

Wonky etal;

Has anyone reported any problems with dealer servicing due to the crashbars and bash plate? Looks roomy and simple enough so that it should be no problem...just an inquiring mind.

I had the full setup when I took the bike for its first 1000km service. Dealer was impressed, he didn't think it would be a problem removing the bodywork at the 20,000km service while leaving the crash guards in place.

As for the first oil change, I asked them to remove only the front 2 bolts under the bike and the right in front of the oil filter, so the bashplate just hangs down by the back bolts, in a hinged kind of way. Dealer didn't find it a chore, i.e. no extra labor cost to remove 4 bolts and drop it.

Adventure-Spec Crash Bars

They work!



Not a scratch on the bike! Sorry no close ups of the damage to the bars but it's just scratches and the right hand bracket is a little bent. Probably knock it back into shape.

For the full story, click on "Shrops" below.

Ordered the bash plate and crash bars for my F8GS last night. What is the average wait for US customers these days? Yes impatient...recovering from knee replacement (which BTW makes a broken collar bone seem like a hang nail) and wrenching will be my only quality time with the bike for awhile more.

From the UK to Canada, it was shipped on Wednesday and delivered on Monday.
4 business days or so.. it's shipped by DHL air and you might have to pay Customs charges to DHL, depending on your US tax exempt allowance. I think it's $200 in the US.. It's 20 measly dollars in Canada and the taxman has his hand in my pocket.
