Missed this. Stock chain had enough length for the change I made which was from 16/42 to 15/45.

Concerning the seat of the F800GS, I will change it ASAP. Last year, I did 1500 km in less than a day and a half and it was killing me. My butt was aching. I know a guy who also used to ride an F800GS, lots of distance covered in little time and he bought an inflatable pad as a first aid... but he told me he planned to change it also.

IMHO, too rigid. I already picked a guy who manufactrues them - handwork. I even know guys who have RT BMWs and changed the seats and they are amazed at the change.

Hi all!

I'm new on this forum, for two years I was riding a 950 Adventure (which is sold now) and now I want a new bike

Two weeks ago, I tried the new F700GS and it would be a great bike for me...

Now I want to try the F800GS (if I buy one, it won't be a new one) so I was wondering, does the stock 2008 F800GS have an AC input (I don't know if we can say "AC input" but I'm talking about where you plug your GPS cable to charge it)?

Sorry if I make some language mistakes, I'm swiss and try to write my best english

For what I recall it's the Chain and the Fuel Pump. You can easily find this on the net (even on adv :o)
