    Looking to Mount Cyclops accessory lights to my ‘19 F850GSA . Has anyone installed them and are they plug and play? If I can’t find the answer then I will probably go with the Clearwater or Denali.

    I think most of us with 850s have a problem with the barkbuster type guards running into the tft. I believe that can be solved by risers.

    I was looking into some lever guards a while ago and I couldn’t find a solution so I figure I’ll eventually get some shorty levers to remedy that

    If you have the Denali CanSmart or EZ HexCan module you can control almost any LED based light.

    Bark Buster now makes a hand guard system specifically designed for the 850 GS, some of the generic ones would definitely hit the TFT

    Yes, I have the 850 GS specific kit, no issues whatsoever, and no riser.

    Installed lowered footpegs from Suburban Machinery today. Nice piece of kit. A bit bigger but not outrageous. Great grip pattern. Passed on the SW-Motech or Wunderlich offerings...I'd be fussing with them forever. A bit more vibes out on the road, though.

    From their site: "The grip surface is 2.0" lower than the factory peg with its rubber insert in place and approximately 1.25" lower than the steel grip surface." The reduced knee bend is perfect for me (34" inseam).

    Put the brake pedal at perfect height—was a bit too low previously. Will adjust the shifter tomorrow.

    (FYI—that bit cut out of the right side footpeg in the last photo is necessary to accommodate the brake pedal mounting bolt on the 1200GS. Same pegs used for this bike.)

    EDIT: these didn't end up putting my feet quite where I wanted. For sale. Contact me if interested.

    Just dropped my 750Gs bike off road and badly bent the rear brake pedal. I was wondering if anyone here who has changed their brake pedal could share the experience. There is very little room to access the screw on the body side of the bike. Just wondering whether I should attempt this myself or “leave it to a professional.”

    First, get your vise grips out and just bend it back. At least so it's usable in the meantime. You may find that it still works just fine and hold off on upgrading...

    In fact it actually works even better than before. Now I can actually use it when I am standing up off-road :) Just concerned about its structural integrity.

    It's steel. It'll be fine.

    Good to hear. I think I will put in an order, I have bashed my bike enough already.

    I have my reservations about those 'brake snakes'... They don't seem like a good idea to me.

    Wow that looks like a good product. I like how it looks and that it doesn't cover up the logo. The installation looks really good too, thanks for sharing!

    They are actually made to keep sticks from getting jammed between the pedal and the case/frame... The do little to keep from bending the brake pedal.
