Handlebar cross-brace for F800GS (or 650GS)

Hear hear,

Does anybody have the cross-brace for the f800gs of 650GS?

I want this for my F800GS




I like the looks

The 12GS crossbrace doesn't fit, also the 800GS has a funny bend in the handlebar so I can't just order something

The crossbrace padding is no problem, I can make my own, but maybe you have a nice option?

Looks good, but what are the actual benefits of it?

You can mount your Garmin on it but I just do it because I like the looks

I have one on my F800GS, but I forget which it was. TourTech or Wunderlich I think, or maybe one of the other aftermarket suppliers. There are at least those two if not more. I use mine for the TT 487 GPS mount.

I am using the TT model:

Allows me to mount the 60CSX to far left in the TT GPS holder and still see the instruments.

I do not know about BMW hand guards, but mine has bark busters and fits fine. I use it(TT) to mount my roll chart for TAT trips.

Is that an 8-track player mounted on your handlebars?
