    [WTB] F800ST Handlebar

    I seek a stock BMW handlebar for the ST. I specifically need the BMW item.

    Let me know if you have one you are willing to part with.

    Thanks!

    As above, I first would check the throttle cable. The way it is routed on the F800 series makes binding likely.

    Wrapping exhausts originally was intended to improve engine performance. Wrapping the exhaust will likely have no impact on heat in the cockpit area.

    Schwabenmax Fast Throttle

    I do not recall previous mention of the Schwabenmax Fast Throttle. I got one and installed it on my F800S(T) and the throttle now responds as I thought it should have from new.

    The principle is...

    The side stand is stronger than it might appear, but I would not recommending putting rider weight on it any more frequently than necessary. That can be said about nearly all side stands.

    The "S" triple clamp and bars are not adjustable, something to consider. The difference between the ST and S is approximately 1.5" up and back, not an awful lot of difference.

    RAM Stem Mount

    Stupid me got a RAM stem ball mount for my GPS before realizing that there is a nut at the top of the F800 stem.

    Has anyone managed to make the RAM stem mount work on an F800?

    TIA
