RevPack Soft Luggage

Has anyone used either the RevPack Tour Pack or their Tank Pack tank bag? I have the Givi topcase, but I'm thinking of getting the Tour Pack as supplemental luggage for touring and off-road storage. I don't yet have a tank bag, and their Tank Pack looks like a reasonably-priced but roomy bag. Anyone have any experience with their stuff?

2011 & newer G650GS- Barkbusters, Kaoko throttle lock info...

Greetings all,

I'm doing some homework to finalize the farkle list for a G650GS that we hope to buy for my wife. I want her to have bark busters and a Kaoko throttle lock. It wasn't clear as to what is compatible, so I inquired with Kaoko. They conferred with Barkbuster and made some suggestions that were confirmed by the folks at Twisted Throttle. The parts that work with the 2011 and newer G650GS with or without heated grips are:
Kaoko CCF120
Barkbuster BHG45

TT stocks both of these.

So now you know!

Cheers! -Kevin

yeah yeah… blah blah… no affiliation with anybody above. YMMV..

Hey nice bikes, Ghostrider. I really like the white one ;)
Thanks for installing my center stand and luggage btw

Touratech skid plate should be here tomorrow. I'm still looking for handguards tho....I've got it narrowed down to the Barkbusters or Acerbis....not sure which ones are better the barkbusters are kind of pricey...I just want ones that can be installed relatively without a lot of work and have a solid metal bar in them. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Some photos from our first trip away on the new bikes.

My apologies for muddying the GS waters with a dirty dirty Tiger

Just got SW motech crash bars and touratech skid plate installed, thanks Ghostrider! Have a wolfman tailbag on the way. I still need suggestions for hand guards...can anyone please recommend some to me? I checked the touratech site and it says apparently I would need to use bar risers and get a new brake line if I have ABS in order to use theirs..WTF?? Does anyone make handguards that won't require hours of work or handlebar risers for the gs650?

BMW makes handguards that fit without any modification (I have them, dealer fitted them, don't think they had to modify anything).

Yep, I've got the dealer-installed hand guards as well, no risers or modifications required. The only drawback is they are the heavy plastic, not steel / aluminum like the TouraTech, SW-MOTECH and some others, but they seem to be very sturdy and have survived at least one drop so far ...

There are handguards and then there are handguards. Most of the handguard applications that don't require the risers will not have the stiff metal ribbing that protect the levers from breaking from impacts.

The barkbusters are the most popular option for a reason. Easy install, no brake line mods and full protection. If you want handguards for "looks" or wind protection then you have lots of options.

Besides, unless you are somewhat short, you'll need the risers for proper riding position when standing on the pegs. This assumes of course, you actually go somewhere where the bike will get dirty.....

Handguards. I have had the stock Dakar/Sertao ones on my 2002 Dakar since its birth. She's been down ALOT and I've had zero problems with them. I thought I'd buy bark busters when these break....but they haven't!

BTW- the new GS's look so much better with the Sertao Beak! Kinda the same w/the older GS. Just finishes off that nose for some reason.

Dirt Bagz just came out with a solution for the G. I bought the 15 liter Rangers and they work great. Well constructed, comes with an easy to install rack/frame.

Check it out. and... I don't work for the company or sell their products.

Take a look at post #169 for a picture.
Since I have a pair of these on my DR 650 I ordered a set of racks for my new Sertao. I installed the racks and tried the bags but I'm not sure if I want my new bike scratched up like they did the Suzuki. Did you use anything to protect the side panels where the bags rub?
