    Hi Folks,
    Just purchased a 2016 F800R Sport.
    A couple of queries.
    1. I'd like to fit handguards. What handguards are most people using?
    2. What slip on pipes are people using? I've been recommended SP Engineering slip ons; any good?
    3. The bike has pannier rails. Are the additional parts required apart from buying the panniers themselves? Will they only fit genuine BMW panniers?

    Thanks for your help.
    Bruno.

    If it's got this "button" in the grab handle and the rail below it then it's BMW factory mount and BMW panniers only. There are no additional parts but I recall the panniers being panniers, "fastening kit" and locks all being separate items, your local BMW main dealer would be able to advise.

    As luck would have it I had a pair of Barkbuster Storm's in my garage that I didn't manage to fit to my CBF1000 as they were obstructed by my screen on full lock. On checking the Barkbuster website the CBF1000 and the F800r were the same guards. Fitted handy enough and very pleased with the result.

    Hi Rob.

    Yes I did see it. Decided to go for a new SP Engineering exhaust. Very good value and a lifetime guarantee. Thank's for the heads up though.
