Looking closely at those pictures it looks like they have a metal bracket so they could fit a fork guard for a different fork... I wonder if they will end up selling that set up. I'd buy one for sure!

Cheers

A reply I got from Twalcom:

Hi Jamie,
all the F800GS used by Stefano Sacchini is special.

The fork is always the stock Marzocchi Shiver 45 but with increased end-stoke, pumping rods with surface coating against friction and cartridge Racing Bitubo with hydraulic adjustements of compression and reboud.
As you saw in the photos the bike is equipped with single Braking disc + stock brake pump of G450X. To be able to mount only the lower fork guards must necessarily eliminate the double disc. The kit is ready but will be marketed only if the request is appropriate. Now we are working also on special upper plate with deddicted clamps ad risers for the Steering damper.

All will be right for the next Erzber.
Ciao, Mario
I guess with enough demand they will make a fork guard/fender eliminator kit for us? Ive also asked if they can make a double brake line with double banjo so we can retain the 2 discs and run the lines down each fork leg. Not sure what to do about the stupid abs cable though, who knows why it runs down the right just to go over to the left...

Watch for the Erzberg in HD on your sat or cable provider. It came on earlier this year.

In HD it is one wild event !

Cool2 Hello If you like we have the answers

All F800 owners the pipe on her unleashes the beast within this machine.

Start here with this mod for beginners, its easy, sheds a heap of weight and dyno results are great.

The F800GS is a good platform but it does need work if you are club man - pro level you will definately need to look at her suspenders . This bike loves hard packed wide open road / firetrails The bike that you see here is turning and tuning it into a true offroad weapon and not for the faint hearted. The bike will do want the user would expect of a smaller machine but you do have to step these mods out as they do come with a cost.

These mods are available through us if your Australian Based we try to remain unbiased but as you can see it just oozes quality the results are astounding we will upload the Australian Specced version soon. Its been setup with the Adventure rider that wants to get to where he wants to go and won't break the budget.

I'd still really like to hear some details on the build up of the bike. Clearly those are not the stock forks and I'd like to hear more of the details.

Just sent him a PM reminding him he promised me he'd do a full write up on the build.

They are the stock forks just modified, refer to the email I received in post 110:

I saw that but 1) they aren't the same color as the stock forks and 2) he had a post on here where he said they were custom forks with 60mm more travel.

So I want to know what the dealio is.

Edit: Found it

From the F800GS Bitubo cartridge thread, post #397.

They are indeed the stock Marzocchi forks, but have been heavily modified. The reason the fork tubes look different is because of a weather/dirt-resistant coating that Bitubo engineers put on them. And the reason that they are 60mm longer is because of the custom internals (rods and cartridges) that make it ride higher. These internals are way different than the mass production Bitubo kit you guys are putting in your forks. These custom ones have preload, rebound damping, and compression damping controls. I'm just repeating all of this from what Bitubo said about them in the thread/link above.

More than enough info about the forks. Ya can't get 'em. Bitubo engineers took the stock Marzocchi forks and heavily modded 'em.

I don't think that's actually the case. I'm pretty sure there's something lost in the translation. Dropping the sliders 2.5"--if it's even possible at all--would really increase the potential for bending.

If I had to guess, I'd say the sliders are "stock" zokes, but from a bike with more travel, like the 610.
