I think instead of skid plates and crash bars being powdered coated they should be coated in the Rhino stuff. FWIW....great job once again!

I saw someone (online) that sprayed it on their track plastics for their sportbike.
One thing though: make sure rhino liner is UV stabilized!!!

That seems like a good idea, but we've found in the Jeep world that it really doesn't work all that well. Powdercoating and paint are much easier to touch up than bedliner. Depending on the product you use, when you get rash on those, they'll either flake or peel off. It's fine on a spot like an interior or truck bed, but if it'll really see a lot of action like a skid plate, it doesn't work as well.

Rhino is apply cold. If you want the right protection use Line-X. Sprayed on and cures, will not split or crack. Rumor has it that they sprayed this on the outside of the Pentagon after 9-11. Great stuff- at one time I was considering a franchise. Could not pull the money together at the time.

For the cheap price it looked good to me. I have been a backpacker long before I became a motorcylcist. I just need something to strap my gear down too.

The 05-07 1200GS had a poor tank design where the "cap" that the fuel pump sits and the connector connects to it would catch water, causing the connection to corrode and the fuel pump to stop working. Stephen (Burnszilla on here) made a great workaround that allowed the pump to get constant power and enable you to get back home.

I haven't heard of 800GS fuel pump connectors failing (the connection made under the seat so it's pretty much out of the way) but that doesn't mean anything, there's lots of things I don't know about.

I got Burszilla's first one of those cables.


Buy enough BMW motorcycles and spend enough improving them and you learn a few things. And empty your wallet . . . I have a very bad habit of buying BMW's, upgrading the hell out of them and then selling 'em when I feel limited by what the bike can do. My 800GS is the first one that I haven't found its limits within a year.


I am a self-admitted gear and farkle geek. I just love motorcycles and all the shit that go along with them.
