Raising G650GS back to stock
I am in the process of raising a lowered 2014 G650GS. I have the rear shock but I have been told different things regarding the front suspension.
Some say all i need to do is slide the fork tubes up (even though they are already at the top of the stanchion). Others suggest a spacer needs to be replaced
On a BMW Fiche site, the parts breakout for the front forks contains this caveat:
G 650 GS. Required: 2
F 700 GS. Required: 2
For vehicles with
Lowering = No (X499A = No)
Does anyone have a good idea of exactly what the front suspension needs to raise it? Or better yet, has anyone done this?
Played too many scratchy lotteries...need a new vice.

I've done an 05 F650GS. Should be the same but cant be sure without looking at the parts fiche.
You need the Damper tube and the spring for each fork. Damper tube is longer to let the fork extend more. Spring is longer to fill the space created by extra extension of fork. Or if you're being thrifty, you can make a preload spacer for the original short spring.
