800gs question

Just tried to move the housing on the handlebars that has the start button ect. on it. Loosened up the screws but it will not turn. Is that housing pinned in a hole in the handlebars. I like to ride with my bars back but then you cannot see the turn signal button. Thanks

If I remember correctly there is a screw holding the button housing's and the heated grips to the bars.

Maybe some ROX adjustable risers would do the trick of moving the bars back and still keeping a good angle for the buttons. It did for me.

Like the stock bars when tilted back but really need to rotate the controls up. Has anyone had the controls off thier bars and can tell me if they are held in place by a stud or something other then the 2 screws on the outside of the control housing.. Thanks

The throttle controls (kill switch, start switch, heated grip control) will rotate if you remove the back cover by removing 2 small torks screws and then loosten the big T 25 torks under the cover.
Same as some other BMW's including the R12GS
