I like it a lot. The bag zips off the base so its easy to remove. And since the 800 has the fuel under the seat there is no need to remove the base. I electrified it also.
The Famsa 260/9 is dedicated to F800GS and includes tank panniers as well.



I use it and am very pleased how well made and sturdy it is.

So my bike fell over on its right side (brake side) due to a flat rear tire and now the right pannier bracket is bent in to the point that it prohibits me from opening the gas cap when the pannier is on. Any easy way to bend the bracket back out to its normal position?

Nice! I got some charcoals on the way. I was told I was the 1st to order the 9" in charcoal. But they prolly tell everybody that. It seems they only have 9" Safaris now. It sucks that I have to wait for them to ship since they are at the BMW rally.

I wish the 9" had the 8" lid profile. Oh well they still look good.

Gonna be in BC in a few weeks. Hoping father-in-laws ancient Goldwing will run for some adventure riding.

Straighting out Uesses and bracksts

I've straightened Jesses and racks a couple of times. Best way to straighten them is with a 6 to 8 inch tall hydrolic jack (2 to 6 ton jack). One secret is to use a piece of wood to make contact with the metal, and slowly pump the jack as you watch the straightening. Best to take out all the bolts before hand.

There is also a write-up in Equipment that gives some good advice. PM me for more heop.

Hey Mike!

Ouch! You need to take better care of my old girlfriend!

Hope you got this sorted out by now? If not, call Rick at XploreMoto and he can probably get you a replacement bracket.

One thing you'll probably see on the bags is that I put extra large stainless steel fender washers on the panniers themselves which helps stop the pannier itself from denting in where the bolts contact it. I never had a bracket bend but had to "pull" a depressed bolt hole out on the right side after a low-speed tip.
