Received the recall notice.
Called the dealer.
Will be replacing chain and both sprockets under the recall.
I'll add one to dream about till the next visit to BBNP...(near Hen Egg Mountain)
Just returned from a 1400 mile ride through New Mexico and Colorado including Engineer Pass and Cinnnamon pass...the bike ran flawlessly and is truly a joy to ride with the new fuel pump...
Fuel pump replaced.
After a 60 mile test ride, the bike starts and runs fine now.
Rode about another 200 mile this morning and everything seems to work fine. Consider it fixed!
Well, I guess that wasn't the fix...
When I got the bike home it seemed slower to start than usual.
Rode 70 miles and turned it off. Would not restart until I pounded on top of the fuel pump...
My 09 F800GS with 7500 miles was stalling and then after 6 times in one day it would not restart.
Turned out to be a bad fuel pump controller. My shop has seen these go bad before on the big...
What does the kit include and how much lower will it make the bike?
I replaced both shocks on my 1150gs with Ohlins at about 24k miles and it was a very noticeable improvement in handling and ride quality.
I just replaced the stock shock with an Ohlins on my...
Over the years I've had good luck with Corbin and Sargent on various bikes.
For the F800 I'm going to try to modify it myself with help from the website below:
My local BMW show just replaced my fuel sending unit as part of the notice.
It appeared to be working fine before hand.
I just brought my used 09 800GS home and haven't had a chance to ride it much yet. But I think it will be an ideal bike for the Texas Hill Country roads. Plenty of power, locking hard...
Great job Dan :thumb
Thanks for sharing.
I have a set of Vario bags and mounts on their way.
Looks like they will arrive before I actually pick up my bike :laugh
I'm hoping they come here so I can buy a 17" front wheel to put on an 800GS and motard it! :D
If you decide to replace your cat, I have a good working one from my 1150 gs that should fit.
It's a low mileage (~20k) one I took off my bike when I installed a staintune system that sold...
Shocks wear so gradually, that it's hard to tell by just looking or even riding on them.
If there are no fluid eaks, they probably are fine.
That said, if you replace them with new ones, you...
If you must ride this weekend, be safe and watch out for all the amateurs...:hungover
Remove the grip using compressed air.
Clean inside of grip and handlebar with alcohol.
Apply grip glue, NOT HAIRSPRAY, 409, SPIT, or anything else that is water soluable etc...after all your ...
I had the kit in 2 days from Rubberchicken...
give a call to framestraight.com
They may be able to straighten your rotors if they are bent/warped.
They did a pair for my Duc a couple years ago and didn't charge that much.
May be worth a try.
kit is available for about $80 from RubberChickenRacinggarage.com
No affiliation here.
I bought the kit and installed it in about an hour.
No more knocking noises upon startup.

You may want to do a search there for TAR (Texas Adventure Ride) coming up in April...
Kaoko works fine with 1150GS handguards.
Can the 1150GS speedo be corrected by changing the drive gear at the front wheel to a different part number ? :scratch
I run a Zumo, but it just bugs me that the OEM speedo is off...
+1 on the Stebel Nautilus air horn.
Have one on my truck and it will wake the dead!
Cheaper version of the same horn is WOLO Bad Boy #419, about $25 at Advance Auto Parts.
