Too tight a chain?

FWIW - Is your chain adj. correctly - specifically is there enough play in it? In MY experience too tight of a chain can cause your problem.

Along with 50 or so other inmates, I just finished the Missouri Swinging Bridges dual sport ride yesterday. About 500 miles of gravel,creeks, and dirt roads with just a little pavement While riding off road, my F8 rarely saw above 3rd gear and mostly between 4000-65000 rpm. This thread was on my mind at times as I was paying attention to my bike more than I normally would have. No problems and the clutch was smooth as butter. No noise no clunking, nothing abnormal.

One should never read these threads before going on a long trip

Sure hope things work out for you Griz and your back in action

By the way my bike has now 4400 miles on the clock

So, I called the dealer. They said they put a request in for the parts. Supposedly, that's all they could tell me at the moment. It just says "Request Pending" in their computer. It doesn't give them a delivery date....so I'm still waiting.....

Yea, I would think a clutch assembly would not be too hard to get quick Griz.

They will be shipped via FedEx international directly to your dealer.

Call them every other day or so and get them to check the backorder status. Not to be a pain, but to stay in the loop.

Oh, this is a good one. I hadn't thought of that.

There are two parts on the list of parts needed to fix my bike that are not available in in the USA or Germany. I looked at the availability list that they printed out and for two of the parts it said "quantity: 0" in both the USA and Germany. WTF??? Now what do I do?

It could take weeks for them to be manufactured in Germany and get over here to the States right?

You are in no man's land on this one. What are the parts? I would look around for someone who binned an F800 and is parting it out. Slim chance, but better than nothing. I would assume that the F650 shares the same clutch parts as well. Basically the same engine in a different state of tune.

Yes, it could take weeks. It might also take just a few days. Depends on the part. If it's OEM'd from somewhere else and they have it in stock, it could turn around fast.

Yes, they have a new F800GS on the floor w/ ABS, heated grips, clear turn signal lenses, center stand, and OBC. You know, the whole package. They said that they can't take any parts off of it. Seems like that's what they should do though. At what point do I get a new bike? I wanna frickin ride. This sucks.
