Got the exact same wheels. 7000 miles and no problems at all. Very happy.

Of course, I don't do any serious off roading, so I can't speak about that.

I traded my '09 R1200GSA for a F800GSA in March. After close to 7000 miles, I have not regretted the switch. The 800 is much more easygoing in everyday use. And while you give up a little bit of...

Not sure I understand: Except 2 gallons more gas under the seat, what could be so much heavier up top? You can always fill the gas tank a little less if you want less weight.

I am riding the GSA with the regular seat (5'8" 30 inseam). Before that, I rode a R1200 GSA. The 800 is easier to handle.

I just switched from 60,000 miles on an R1200GSA to an F800GSA. Very glad I did, as the 800 is much more versatile and nimble and it still does very well long-distance, even in Texas.

I'd like to know what repairs on a BMW end up below $200. I guess the seal on the final drive falls into that category, but is there much else? Just trying to understand.

That's my thinking as well. And since you have two shields the inner and the outer, shouldn't the result be even better?

Sounds like a problem with the clutch slave cylinder or the master cylinder. If it goes away when pumping the clutch lever, the problem is that some air gets into the hydraulic system.
