Hall of Wisdom

I should start by saying I’m no mechanic.

Changing the oil a few months ago on the F800ST was the first oil change of my life on anything. Needless to say, I sought and took some advice before I started.

So apologies to the mechanics.

My only foray into oil changing will likely be at the mid-point between 10,000kms services. The good advice seems to be to “drop” the oil at this stage. Part of the 10,000kms services, of course, will be oil and filter change – so the mid-point “drop”.....

Something that has been on the agenda for a while has been the creation of an 'F800 FAQ' similar to what has been in place for quite a while now in the F650 Community:

See: http://faq.f650.com/main.html

We definately have the tools, and we're getting to a point as to where we have enough people on here to help. (118 online at the same time no so long ago!) It's time that we get this project started.

Don't read if your not a geek and interested in the very inards of you bikes brain.

Some of you will know my quest to discover the true status of software updates (or not on the F800 series) in an effort to possible improve my low RPM performance.

I've got a fair amount of free play on the throttle at idle. How do you go about adjusting this out.

There are two adjuster wheels on the throttle twist grip. One directly underneath and another about an inch or so down. Had a play with these with little success.

This post is the official guide to the F800Riders.org F800 Hall of Wisdom in a question and answer form. Let start:

Q: What's the deal with this? Why is it here?
A: This was created to be a primary source of community generated information for the F800 Series of motorcycles. There wasn't one (besides combing through the forums) so we figured there was a need, and we whipped it together.
