TT Windscreen - USA Price?

Anybody know if that windscreen will make it to the USA?

If so ... I hate to ask, but is there an estimated price?

Thanks,
jim

It's 562 in the UK if that helps.

I'd wager Britannia Composites could make it for a heck of a lot less. Shall we lobby Ian to make an 800GS screen?

OK, this'll get mixed reviews ... don't shoot me for having an opinion ...

After seeing the recently posted pics of the TT tank conversion, I LIKE the way it looks! It's a cleaner, more homogenous look. Way better than the factory setup, IMHO, but then no one could accuse BMW of eye pleasing designs. As for the scalloped sides, I think that's some German guys idea of attractive, but it serves the main purpose of adding strength. They do that in car design all the time. A flat side panel would most likely "oil can" unless the material were extremely thick which in this case would partially defeat the purpose of holding more fuel. The photos give the impression of a very well engineered piece of kit.

And the cost, well that's another story. I guess it's like the bike itself ... if you like it and can afford it, you buy it ... ?!

Just my $.02 ... from a guy who doesn't even have an F/GS ... maybe someday ...

Oh, and a question ... Is the dark gray the unpainted version for EU300 less?

Auxiliary fuel tank.

I currently have a small firm of fabricators (2 blokes with loads of experience who are just setting up their own business) working on a rear mounted auxiliary tank for the g650x bikes. Because they are a new firm they don't have much work yet and are getting this moving very quickly. If there is a demand, I should be able to get hold of an f800gs on demo from my local bmw dealer so they can attempt to measure it up for a tank as well. After they have finished the GX tank of course.

Keep an eye on the GX thread to see how the tank turns out and let me know if you're interested.

Iain

I don't think so. It's probably the "Magnesium Gray".

Hey Yall,
I'm still trying to find out what might be the best way to plumb up an aux tank to a 800GS. Anyone here have any advice? My application would put the tank about the same level as the existing tank. Was hoping to just put a "T" in the line coming out of the tank, but I am pretty sure that will not work.

Thanks

Hm. That's US$850... Not nearly as bad as I thought it might be, if it makes it to the US at that price. I'd heard it was going to be US$1,600.

I wonder if the Adv-Spec crashbars will fit with it....

The 562 is for the screen. i think $1600 is probably going to be right for the tank.

Back to the Rotopax idea....

Anyone heard from Neduro lately, about any progress on his tank for the F800GS?
