    Has anyone successfully installed electronic cruise control on their f800gs. I am considering the Rostra universal cruise control but am concerned about messing up the Canbus system on my 2009 f800gs. None of the dealer service departments in my area have installed any on this bike.

    I'll second the question, now that BMW has deferred another year on their models.

    I too am wondering about cruise control. GS-911 just updated, so I was resetting the service light and was poking around to see what it would tell me about the bike. One of the things listed was "cruise control is present". I imagine that since the bike has throttle by wire, it would really only need controls for the system to work- if BMW has that functionality in the ECU.

    The GS-911 is suitable for several model ranges of BMW, some with cruise control option, others (like the F-series) without. IMHO this is an option of the GS-911, not of the bike.

    This company in Australia say they have developed an electronic cruise control system for the F800 GT - anyone have any experience of their products.

    I fitted a CCS100 vacuum operated CC to my son's F650GS about 5 years ago. Still working perfectly.

    Vedo che la discussione č stata aperta molto tempo fa e sono passati molti anni. Se qualcuno interessa io mi so fatto in casa una specie di cruis control, si puo migliorare ancora molto. Oltre a questo se uno vuole lo si puņ mettere quello originale ma ci voglio molti pezzi. Chiedo scusa se non scrivo in Inglese ma non lo so e parlo solo italiano

    I see that the discussion was opened a long time ago and many years have passed. If anyone is interested I know a kind of home-made cruise control, you can still improve a lot. In addition to this, if you want you can put the original one but you want a lot of pieces. I apologize if I don't write in English but I don't know and I only speak Italian.
