Talking F800GS Adventure Accessories

Hi guys,

New to the forum here. :)

Just bought a 2013 F800 GS Adventure and am looking at how I can add accessories to the bike. I see a lot of items for F800GS online, and while some sites like Touratech's list a separate category for F800GSA, I am wondering whether most F800GS items can fit F800GSA, or do I have to hunt around for items specific to F800GSA? I know the rear and body kit of the f800GSA is different from the normal GS model, but I'm hoping things like rear rack for 3rd party top boxes, radiator guard, hand guards, fenders etc. will all be compatible?

Also, my bike comes with the default BMW rack. I've emailed and Touratech and they don't make racks (which means I can't use their boxes) for the F800GS Adventure. Are there any 3rd party panniers out there which can fit the F800GSA?

Any help would be great! Thanks guys.

Jack

I'm in the same boat. There are a few threads but it's still early for this model. At the moment we're stuck with BMW for panniers...and even those are back ordered. I hope to have mine in by the end of the month. Anything around the body work will be different than a standard GS but it sounds like upper bars should be on the market soon from a few companies. I'd assume pannier racks will be close behind. Lower items like a skid plate should bolt up just fine on both the GS and GSA. So far the only thing I've done is mount a GPS using the Garmin Rugged mount and the RAM ball system.

Well, if he's a "noob" AKA jackjack700 he just might not have been here for the last two weeks.

Hey jackjack700, feel free to ask any question you want.There are some of us out here that won't take offense that you didn't spend hours trying to search through threads that almost immediately go "off topic".

Search if you dare, but currently BMW is the only pannier system available.

Like rsmith2786 said, upper bars are coming, skid plates should fit, although Black Dog is the only one I've seen that confirmed it with a photo.

Everything else should fit, but be ever mindful when you buy something and ask lots of questions of the supplier.
