Go to the F650/800GS Thread Index", look under "Maintenance & Servicing" and click on "Torque Values"

That's actually very true, how could I forget stickers?!

Seriously though, don't blow off your stickers, especially your inspection sticker!

Don't spray:

- directly on the sides of either wheel hub, at the bearing seals
- into the exhaust
- into the intake
- directly on the edge of the tail light
- directly on the edge of the instrument cluster
- directly into the chain grooves
- directly into the shock dust wiper
- directly into any button

Basically you don't want to spray into O-rings or into the exhaust or intake.... Most of these that I said "directly" you can spray from 3 feet away so it isn't pressurized, just don't get real close.

So....I guess no one knows how to answer this question, Monstaman. Maybe try explaining your question a little better. I'm not exactly sure myself what you are asking: "parallel length of the fork tube machining" ? ? ?

Help us understand what you are wanting to know more specifically.

Next question....maybe not so Stupid:

Anybody had any problems from an aftermarket engine guard mounted to the motor? I don't see another way to do it. All the options seem to bolt to the engine case (lower portion). Doesn't make me feel warm and fuzzy to look at mine mounted down there that way.

Not that I ever fall down....but it could happen, maybe. I guess.

p.s. Nobody has a photo of HF down.

If I understand what he is trying to say is, how far can you raise the fork in the triple clamps. The forks have a wasp like shape below the upper clamps. When mounted according to BMW specs, there is about 18mm below the upper clamp before the fork tube narrows. You can go higher but the top clamp will not have full contact.

Yeap that is what I wanted to know, I would be looking to bring the forks up through the triples a bit to help with lowering a bit, obviously can't go to far as it will bugger the geometry.

So yeap need to know how far down the effective flat spot if you like extends down the fork leg from the top and bottom clamp or the parallel or square length machining on the fork tube so the top and bottom triple will bolt back onto nicely before the taper on the leg.

Monstaman

I am vertically challenged also. If you look at the top of the forks you will see a grove on the fork tube showing what I thought was the max you can raise the forks in the clamps. I have gone another 1/2" past the line. At that point, if you were to use all of your fork travel the front fender and brake lines would just be touching the under side of the bike's Radiators and such. Raising your fork tubes any higher and you could cause problems.

Heya LaPorte, many thanks, how far is that line below the tripe clamp or how much have you lowered yours overall?

Does it make much difference to the handling?
