    800.000 km con la F800GS

    Se han hecho de rogar, pero al final han llegado.

    Había quedado el fin de semana con unos amigos para hacer la cifra mítica de los 800.000 Kms.

    Pero tal vez por aquello de la “obsolescencia programada” (jeje), el martes anterior con 799.115, la cadena de distribución se fue por libre y salto de piñón en piñón. Resultado válvulas torcidas… Solución: sustitución de culata.

    Retomada la acción, por fin ha llegado el esperado número que hace juego con la denominación de la moto.

    Y como regalo, le he puesto unas llantas doradas tubeless de Bart factory. Ha sido un premio de oro.

    En el breve video, se recoge el momento del paso a los 800.000, y la sonrisa que se manifiesta en el cuentavueltas. Asimismo, aprovecho para poner unas fotos con el último regalo.

    They have been made to beg, but in the end they have arrived.

    He had met for the weekend with some friends to do the mythical figure of 800,000 km. But perhaps because of the "planned obsolescence" (hehe), the previous Tuesday with 799,115, the distribution chain went free and jump from pinion to pinion. Result of bent valves… Solution: replacement of cylinder head.

    Back in action, the expected number has finally arrived that matches the name of the bike.



    And as a gift, I have put some Bart factory gold tubeless rims. It has been a gold award.

    In the short video, the moment of the passage to 800,000 is collected, and the smile that is manifested in the lap counter. Also, I take the opportunity to put some photos with the last gift.

    The rims are excel, there are several colors to choose from, and they are mounted on the original hubs.
    They also make the rim tubeless to be able to mount tubeless tires.

    Las llantas son excel, hay de varios colores a elegir, y se montan sobre los bujes originales.
    Además convierten la llanta en tubeless para poder montar neumaticos sin camara.

    That’s just shy of 500,000 miles! That’s great! Any tips that helped your bike get to that mileage?
