Details

After the success of the F800GS BMW have now created the F800GS Adventure, with even more range and many extra features. Adventure-Spec have created a new version of our incredibly popular F800GS crashbars for the new Adventure.

We have sold over 1000 sets of our original crashbars and you can read all the great feedback, reviews and questions about our original crashbars by clicking here

At Adventure-Spec we believe the most important additions to a bike are those that let you go beyond the 'safe' routes without worrying about terminally damaging your means of exploration, ie you or your bike.

Our bashplate/sumpguard/skidplate in powdercoated black ensures your engine and lower bike is kept as safe as possible.

This compatible set of crash bars may limit damage to your bikes engine cases, radiator and fragile bodywork in the event of a spill.

Manufactured by CNC tube bending machines using a non-standard high tensile steel we are able to keep the seam running along the inside edge of the bars increasing strength dramatically over standard bent tube.

Completed with our usual high standard of TIG welding (unlike other inferior MIG welded products) and then triple powder coated for superb corrosion resistance these bars not only complement your bike (we used the same diameter of tubing as your frame and matched the powder coat colour as closely as possible to BMW frame coatings) but provide tough expedition tested protection.

Among many awesome comments from both customers and journalists about our products, US magazine Overland Journal said, 'These are the highest quality aftermarket parts we have ever fitted to a motorcycle'.

Need we say anymore...

Questions

Questions on Adventure-Spec Crashbars BMW F800GS Adventure

  • From Daniel Scheller at 04/04/2014 00:04
    • The Adventure-Spec crash bars have great reviews and are well designed. Are photos available showing them on a F700GS?
    • We don't have any photographs that we have taken ourselves I'm afraid. I'd suggest you ask on a forum like Advrider.com, I'm guessing you'll get some pictures pretty quickly!

      I'm sorry we couldn't do more to help.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From James at 23/04/2014 14:48
    • Do the crash bars fit with the BMW OEM lower crash bars and bash plate? Or is the Adventure-Spec bash plate required?
    • Hi James,

      If you go for our crashbars, you remove the OEM ones. The stock bashplate should work okay with our bars ( I dont remember actually checking this combo when we did them, but we never had a problem with other bashplate designs on the normal 800gs, so it should be the same for the GSA)

      Hope this helps!

  • From Chris at 11/08/2014 12:54
    • Hi, these look like they provide great protection for the fairings, but also look very close to where your knees and lower legs go. Can you reassure me they dont compromise rider position? (I'm 5 foot 11)
    • Hi Chris

      We have had some very tall riders that didn't like the position of the bars, but also several thousand who do. At 5'11 you will probably be ok (as long as you have a tall/normal seat). Its difficult to say for sure
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From Clark at 21/09/2014 17:20
    • I see these are made of steel, how much do they weigh?
    • Clark,

      They weigh approx 5.5kg.

      Hope that helps.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From John at 12/06/2015 23:17
    • I have a 2015 f800gs with a red frame. Do you have red crash bars that match the frame?
    • Hi John,

      We only do the black colour in the Crashbars unfortunately
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From Ricardo at 22/05/2017 11:57
    • Hi,

      I have a 2017 BMW F700GS does this bars fit on it?

      Thank you
    • The crashbars may look a little wider on the F700, but it will fit fine.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From M Brown at 25/07/2017 10:13
    • What size of tubing is used for these crash bars?
    • 25mm high tensile steel tube.

      Hope that helps.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No

    Good equipment but not for f800gsa 2016 Review by Hormon
    Good equipment but not for f800gsa 2016" by , written on 29 May 2017
    The quality of the product is very good. There is one problem for whose of you who would like to protect f 800 GSA 2016 - they do not fit. I mean the element which fix left and right crashbar has a conflict with a plastics around radiator. Pictures available. So, it would be fantastic if the Adventure Spec made a new front element and reached those who ride 2016 model.
    I left 5 stars since I believe you guys (AdventureSpec) will consider and add a small modification of your very good product.

    ***Adventure Spec Responds***

    Hi Hormon,

    Thanks for the review - this is actually the first report we've had of these not fitting the 2016 model of the F800GSA.

    We'd be interested in getting hold of your pictures and checking what might have changed, but as you've left your review as a guest, we can't contact you. If you see this, contact us!

    After I bought my F800GSA I always wanted better crash protection. After comparing other brands and the YouTube video by awesome players review of the bars, I decided to buy the bars. Expensive but I love the protection they provide and the design really compliments the GSA.

    Wonderful protection Review by Tore Huseby
    Wonderful protection" by , written on 1 March 2015
    Crashed with a deer last year in app 120 km/h. It came running from left side. The crashbar bended backwards 2 inches, end outwards 1,5 int the crash!
    Without the crashbar i would shurely have lost my left lower leg.
    Today the deer is dead, I am alive and still have both feet intact .
    The crashbar was fixed within half an hour with a sledge-hammer. Worlds best protection, and it is not in the way for the workshop-mechanics.

    Worth every penny! Review by Neil
    Worth every penny!" by , written on 18 December 2014
    I have to firstly say that the guys at AS are amazing! They are one of the only bike shops i've been to where the staff really know what they're talking about, and rather than just being racers, they're actually adventure riders. If you've got an enduro/adventure bike, this is the place for you.

    Now about the crash bars. I have an F800GSA and they already come with stock engine guards, so wasn't really sure i needed these, but after fitting them, they're exactly what i need. If you plan on any kind of adventure ride, and this is likely to involve falling off at some stage (otherwise it's not an adventure right?), then to fully protect you bike, offer you additional storage/attachment space for tool tubes etc., these bars are great.

    Shame they're not in silver like the stock bars, but they offer the best protection i've seen on crash bars, easily fit and take a few good tumbles without even batting an eyelid (if they had one).

    Definitely worth the pennies and despite their robustness, they're not that heavy either.

    If you're thinking about getting them, stop! Just get them!

    Happy Trails everyone

    Just that extra protection for the bike and you." by , written on 27 October 2014
    Hi bought these Bars around 1 month after getting my F800gsa and was not used to the weight so i had let it drop couple of times and wanted to limit the amount of damage caused if it ever happended again, since then i learned how to man handle the bike but the bars give that extra piece of mind, after doing loads of research these were the most readily available and cheapest bars. It also looks great and makes the bike into a tank, you look very substantial on the road.

    Excellent - saved my bike & already paid off in 2nd week" by , written on 6 September 2014
    Two weeks after getting my brand new F800GSA-T I dropped it on road gravel and these bars saved my bike. There was not even a scratch except a bent gear lever although it was caused by the terrain and how the bike landed on an outer camber before a ditch (fortunately didn't end up there). IMHO this is a must and was so glad I got them fitted before leaving the dealer.

    I always approach fitting equipment with mild trepidation, they don't call me Tenthumbs for nothing. But the instructions and diagrams supplied made the fitting a breeze. Went on to fit an AS bash plate in record time.

    I ordered the crash bars and a bash plate after watching a review of the F800GS bars on You Tube. Placed the order on Tuesday and received the equipment the following Monday, in Canada.
    Installation was straightforward.
    There is no comparison as to the level of protection these offer as opposed to the stock equipment from BMW.
    Very impressed with the quality of the bars and the plate, and the welding.
