2011 F800GS made it through warranty

I was always horrified by all the "my bike is doomed" problem threads, so I figured I'd post a useless "no problems here" thread instead.

~25,000 miles - arctic circle, toroweap, death valley,...

twalcom/magura hydraulic clutch install

Since the instructions are only in Italian, I had to fumble through with Google translate. Magura will not help, since it is a kit assembled by Twalcom. After staring at all the bits for a while,...

twalcom clutch kit + tendonitis

I've had the twalcom kit for ~10,000 miles now (19K on the bike.)

It's probably 30% lighter than the stock clutch. I can now ride for several days without my tendonitis getting so bad I can't...

Nice accessory for the 36L cases

Just got back from a trip to Canada/AK, including a bunch of monsoon conditions. 36L cases held up like a champ! No leaks, no drama.

I thought I'd share this compression stuff sack - it fits...

Madstad winglets

The winglets definitely keep a lot of cold air off you. Actually, I notice them most in reverse. If it starts getting warm, I need to pull them off or I start roasting.

The madstad screen IS a...

I've had one for the past 6000 miles, and it is indeed very nice. With the following caveat: It is NOT an approved fitment from Magura, it's a kit put together by Twalcom.

The main issue is that...

High idle after 12K service 2011 F800GS?

Maybe I'm imagining it? It seems to be around 1100-1200 RPM now, I could swear it was lower before. What's the stock idle? Is there some re-learning period after an ECU reset? Or some other factor...

I have them, they seem to work fine. The plastic seems pretty soft, so they rash up in drops a bit more than I'd like.

Thanks everyone.. your responses are comforting that I can do this with minimal planning. I've never gone more than 1 week before, so this will be a possibly once-in-a-lifetime trip for me.

So here's my Alaska planning so far: 4 weeks + 2 weeks contingency, leaving June 1st from the San Francisco bay area on my F800GS. That's it.

I have the twalcom/magura kit too. I also noticed the travel was less, googling around for the hymec on other bikes implies that is normal (10.5mm of travel.)

pro-oiler anyone?

Not to argue the merits of automatic oilers.. has anyone done this install on an F800GS? There's some pictures on the pro-oiler site on an F650GS, but they are not very good.

Where'd you tap the...

Yeah, I got the 20" recently. Can't really report on it until the last week of the month, when I do a 1000 mile jaunt. The height/angle of attack is pretty critical, I've taken 3 passes at it so...
