Decided to switch from the M102 to the KN164 filter. The plate was just too close.....

I got a set of foot pegs with the sw-motechs.

There ok... On the pavement is the only place you'll use them (probably). They do allow you to vary the position of the hot spot on your butt with the stock seat...

Not sure how they'd work a scooped seat. I like being able to slide back and forth...

Oh, and at any kind of speed at all, they blow back into the retracted position. They seem very sturdy, and I'm not worried about ripping them off the next time the bike takes a nap...

Hope this helps!

Installed mine for protection, not so much for looks. I wanted black, they only had silver in stock, oh well..... I laid the bike down 3 times fully loaded, and not a scratch on the bike. I'm definitely happy I purchased guards...

crash bar and bash plate combo

will the sw motech crash bars and the adv-spec bash plate co-exist in peaceful protective harmony? the adv-spec plate looks like a solid option.

i'm 6' 4" with a 36" inseam and have scoured this thread for evidence that i'll be slamming my knee into the adv-spec regularly (doesn't sound fun). can anyone tall (in the legs not the torso) comment either way?

the SW-Motech crashbars will NOT work with our (adventure-spec) bashplate.

There has been a lot of talk about the knee bashing, but i know a few tall guys who're perfectly happy with them. I know tall seats help, but it doesnt seem to bother most owners. Dont forget, we've sold A LOT of these now and have had barely any feedback on this matter.

Dert Gerl,
can you post some pics with someone on the bike so we can see how the knees / bars relate? are these still prototype or are they available for sale? crash tested?

Thanks!

Does anybody has a picture off the front with Holan bars fitted to a F650gs.
There are lots off pictures with the F800 but how does it look on the F650 as It has the smaller radiator.

From viewing stand point I think the Sw motech and the adventure bars are too wide when put on a F650.

It's a bad one, and shows the Chrome Nickel version, but should answer your question:

Thanks for the picture.

2 days ago I found a video of someone pushing an F800 over in the grass to show how the crash bars work, now today I can't find it?

I am pretty sure it was here. Anybody got a link (sorry)

Wunderlich Crash Bars / Engine Skid / And what center stand skid?

I have a 2010 BMW F650GS. Wunderlich makes crash bars / engine skid for the F650GS/F800GS, but the center stand skid is only for the F800GS.
Anyone have this combo, f650gs with wunderlich bars/skid and a center stand skid? Which center stand skid, and how do you like it?

Broke my Holan crash bars

Pictures to follow.

I will be ordering a replacement set, because I do like them, but I think I have found a bit of a weakness.
