Does the stock chain has enough length for 47?

Will you need a longer chain to make this work?

Ratios for comparison:

42/16 = 2.625

42/15 = 2.8

47/16 = 2.93

I think for 47/16 you'll need longer chain.

(Note: I said average -- there are outstanding people in the dealership network, but until I know that about them I don't feel I can trust what they tell me any more than I can a post from one of you.)

Dear RTW:

Can you post a packing list of what was on your bike? How did you take the other stuff not on your bike? Do you have a list of that as well?

Thanks amigo - because this is a very interesting thread!

I'm guessing that RTW's picture hosting deal has expired so his pic links aren't working anymore. He's still around so you may get an answer to your question and maybe even a new link to his pics.

I just read thru the whole thread, took a couple of hours. It's outstanding. Still trying to decide on whether to try and get a F800.

Anyway, the thread died about a year ago, look at the post dates. Maybe we can get RTW to bring it current again. What a great read.

Get one! I enjoyed this thread too and it would have been great to get some answers too.

What are your concerns about F800GS?

Hello RTW.
Thanks for sharing so much information.

You said that you created your own engine guards and luggage rack.
Could you post photos of them? Maybe some comments on your design considerations.

Thanks! You're awesome.

$$
weight

Actually decided on a new KTM 450EXC and then decided to just keep what I've got for the time being. I have a great road bike and a great offroad bike. Not sure exactly how I would replace the two with one.

You right about $$, weight.

F800GS can't combine good off/on road bikes. It's kind of adventure bike.
