Hi I’m upgrading springs in front forks and would like to know if someone has measurements of the black sliding sleeve that sits under the spring?
Looks like mine has been played with having a spacer top and bottom and I would like to go back to standard with the new springs,need the height of sleeve?
Cheers

f you ever fall over and damage your F800/700/650's shift selector shaft mechanism, here is a video showing how to replace it easily without even needing to drain the oil out of the engine.

I have F800GS 2016.

Anyone know how to change that ?

My 2014 F800GSA blows the headlight bulb frequently - once every fortnight or so, and I am not riding much in that time.

Has anyone experienced this before?

Thanks
Chris

While this article might not help owners of F800 models, it might just help owners of the F750/850 bikes some day.

If you have the type of brake caliper that holds the brake pads in place with a hook built into the pad at the upper end of the pad assembly and a hole at the lower end that a rod fits through, which is screwed into the body of the caliper and is secured by a circlip or wire J-clip, you might give this a try to remove the brake pads without needing to detach the caliper from their fork mounts: First remove the securing circlip or wire J-clip on the pad attachment rod at the lower rear of the.....
