    A possibility is that you have air in/within the master cylinder at/near the piston. This happened to me on a bleed for a newer GT. Air was introduced into the cylinder itself. No matter how much I...

    I installed these on our 2019 F800GT. The kit came with a brake line extender. On the drive-by wire GTs, no extension except the brake line is needed. You simply need to unclip the wire bundles to...

    Hey Andrew,

    Cramer is correct. Your regulator is gone. I replaced the factory stator and R/R with electrosport on my wife's 2007 ST and it lasted about 3 years, 3 big trips before it started to...

    Thanks for picking up the used grips I had for sale. The swap of the left grip is very easy to do. You do need to peel back the grip as there is a screw/nut that goes through the grip and underlying...

    My wife just went to a 2019 GT from her 2007 ST and finds the GT to be less responsive on the throttle. This is due to the ride-by-wire on the newer GTs vs. the direct throttle connection on the...

    Hi Jay,

    My wife and I have had 4 F800-twin machines between the two of us (2007 F800ST, 2010 F800GT, 2010 F650GS Twin, and new 2019 F800GT). We've only had the stalling issue on the F800ST.

    The highest probability is that you have an over-voltage spike. The ECU will shut down the display to protect it in this case.

    I am an advocate for checking the easy and obvious first.

    Biggest changes:

    1. Drive by wire on the GT vs. Traditional Throttle Cable on the ST
    2. Fairing and windshield are slightly broader on the GT. GT has better support/windshield stability.

    The LED indicators were OK before the software update or were they done at the same time?

    I hope you've solved it. Thinking about this a bit more, I think you have. That missing o-ring likely caused loss of pressure and/or the pump to work overtime (overheating and/or failing...

    I agree, try the airHawk as that is the cheapest/quickest solution. You could also try shimming the front seat bracket slightly to create a more horizontal seating surface (you can't do too much on...

    Cramer is correct. High probability of the steering head bearings pitted, too loose, or both. Here are some possibilities to check (easiest to most involved).

    Definitely rooting for you too!

    If this solves it, your hard work will have paid off and you are now more intimately familiar with your bike (silver lining).

    Glad it worked out for you. I had initially used washers as well but found the assembly a bit to wobbly. If yours is solid, no problem. If it isn't create some larger shims with more surface area...

    I had the same dilemma with a few kits. I ended up using my original strainer to ensure a good fit. I your original one is in good shape, I would use that.

    I agree with Roadster. Both dying simultaneously indicates either the switch (dirty/bad contact or broken) or the ECU is trying to save your weak charging system. If they each died slowly over time,...
