I have no experience with these tires but I always run the tire pressure at 35 to 40 when riding pavement using knobbies. I do this even when the recommended tire pressure is well below that value.

HammerHead Designs

I like the HammerHead Design shift levers, have them on dirt bikes. They do make one for the 1200GS, maybe it would fit the 800 or maybe another one of theirs models will.
