    '13 F800GS
    I've just heard back from Dave at MotoOverland, who I'm ordering my skid plate and luggage rack from, that their sidestand foot enlarger for the F800GS does NOT fit the lowered suspension version of this bike. Apparently the sidestand is different. And it's different again from the F700GS, so Dave says he has no option for me.

    Has anyone come across a sidestand foot enlarger that will work with the lowered suspension 2013 F800GS?

    I don't believe there is one, yet. I have an email out to Hornig (they're generally really on top of this) and I'll post again when they respond tomorrow.

    It seems like the lowered F800GS uses the standard (non-lowered) F700 side stand based on the BMW parts fische. So I went ahead and bought a 650GS side stand from Moto Overland, but haven't been able to test it since I am still waiting for my bike to arrive (damn BMW! ). Dave informed me last week that he was able to test it with a lowered F800GS and it didn't work. That confuses me as to whether the BMW parts fiche is wrong?
