    Hi Mark,
    Silly smooth of the 6. Yeah that's an understatement, this thing has more brute power than you can shake a stick at.

    Thanks Tonya.
    My wife is a new (learning) rider and the main thing I didn't appreciate was how difficult leanring on the streets can be.

    The ST was a little small feeling for me, I'm not a big person but it still felt small.
    I liked the F800ST well enough and honestly, I missed the "better hang on to your A$$" power. The ST doen't...

    Traded up

    Hello All,
    I traded in my 2 2012 ST's for the mighty GTL. Couldn't be happier. The ST is a fine bike and during the 5,300 miles I put on them, the only real problem I found was the stalling issue...

    My dealer told me they could put one on my ST if I just "had to have it" and they'd cover the bike under the warranty - less the quick shifter because that wasn't "factory" for the ST. The tranny on...

    If you take a centerstand and cut one inch off it, weld it back, finish it up nice, you'll have a stand for the lowered ST. I can't say anything about the clearance in the turns, only the mechanical...

    I've been using the same Purolator (PL10241) for 20k miles on my R1100R. I refuse to pay $20 for a filter which does the same fuction for $5. I, like Charles, will paint the thing black and be on my...

    Offroading on an ST is not impossible, maybe not recommended, but not impossible. For starters, the front end suspension would crack your teeth from going "Boing-Boing-Boing" as it's just too darn...

    Hello David,
    When I ride either of my 2012's on a hot day and stop after a 30 minute ride, with less than 1/2 tank, I can expect the bike to stall when I get back on within about 20-30 minutes. I...

    There's a PDF on the Helibar site for the F800ST showing exactly how to re-route all the lines. They've already done all the work and documented it.

    If you route the brake line behind the lower triple tree clamp, you'll find there's almost too much brake line.

    Running the belt "looser" isn't to prolong the life of the belt, it's to prolong the life of the rear axel bearings.
