A 4mm thick Adventure-Spec sumpguard for use on a BMWF800GS (all years). One of our most popular products we have now sold over 1000 of these bashplates and can honestly say that the feedback has been overwhelmingly excellent. The plates have been tested from the deserts of Australia to the passes of Peru and we have yet to be informed of a single failure. Designed for offroad and adventure use this guard is made with the same attention to detail and quality material as all Adventure-Spec products. However, the design is considerably more complex than that of a smaller bike because of the need to specifically protect all the vital parts of your bikes lower engine including your oil filter, oil cooler, and exhaust header pipes. This design incorporates an oil cooler air scoop to drive air over your oil cooler but stop the area filling with mud which which will always cause your engine to run overhot causing reliability issues. The full wrap around design is based heavily on our Rally heritage and we believe that this plate is the most comprehensive and best looking protection currently available for the BMWF800GS. The bash plate is mounted using the existing rubberised mounts and fittings onto the engine sump and a steel bracket attaching to the front of the engine area. The guard can be easily removed for oil changes and the front bracket only needs one nut losening and rotating (NOT removing) to change the oil filter.

Made from 4 to 5mm high grade aluminium

Tig welded both internally and externally for superior strength

'Complete protection' design ensure coverage for all vulnerable bike parts

Three layer powder coating ensures excellent protection and finish

Stainless steel and powder coated fitting kit provides maintenance free long life

Will fit BMW F650GS with additional BMW bashplate fitting kit BMW Part Number 71607704773

Questions on Adventure-Spec Bashplate BMW F650GS/F800GS

  • From JohnG at 21/08/2011 11:59
    • What other crashbar brands can I use with this bashplate?
    • As far as we are aware the only crashbars you can use with this bashplate are our own Guard-it Technology range. We designed them for that exact reason! If you know of any other bars that do work with this bashplate then please let us know.

    • It says I can use this bashplate on my BMW F650 GS but my friend says I need a special fitting kit, is that right?
    • Yes and No!

      You do need a fitting kit but its not 'special'. Its the standard BMW part that comes with the F800GS to mount the BMW plastic bellypan that our bashplate replaces. You can buy it from any BMW dealer worldwide.

  • From CeriJC at 04/10/2011 13:24
    • I would like some freer-flowing headers, but they tend to be slightly larger diameter than stock and hence not fit the OE bashplate. Can you list any known aftermarket header pipes that can be used with this G-It one?
    • I'm afraid I can't. You're exactly correct when you say that in order to gain a better flow you would need larger diameter headers (if you have already changed your end can). Our bashplate is designed to have as small a cross section as possible so that riding offroad is as easy as possible. To that end our 'plates do wrap around the lower portion of the bike tightly and currently there are no aftermarket headers that we are aware fo that will fit.

      Sorry about that,

  • From John Townsend at 30/05/2013 17:29
    • Will this bash plate fit my 20013 700gs
    • Yes it will, although you will need to ensure you buy the BMW mounting kit that comes as standard on the BMW F800GS, but not on the F650GS or the newer F700GS.

      Hope that helps.

    • Does this item fit the 2013 F800GS? Are there any other BMW mounting kit required? Any instructions manual that comes with the item?
    • Yes, this item fits the 2013 BMW F800GS. You do not need any other parts to fit this to your bike other than the items supplied and the items on your bike. The bashplate does come with fitting instructions.

      Hope that helps.

BashAway - BUY it now! Review by LeCler
Overall rating
The AS bashplate and crash bars were the first things that went on my brand new F800GSA in Jan this year and since that time I have placed over 16k miles on her. Ran through all sorts of terrain and even sheared off the rubber bushings once leaving only two bolts in place, but the plate did its job in protecting my engine/parts. It has some deep gouges beneath but still holding strong. DITTO for the crash bars. (Posted on 26/10/2014)

Easy to put on, sturdy and well manufactured and works very well in combination with the adv-spec crash-bars!

I ride our (off-road)tours on my 800GS through rough terrain in Morocco and Iceland, this piece of art does what it's made for! (Posted on 13/05/2014)

Tank-like build quality Review by Ross

Just fitted this engine guard and have to say it's a solid piece of kit. Looks fantastic on my Triple Black 800GS, very easy to fit. I can't imagine anything denting this let alone cracking it in any way. Highly recommended! (Posted on 12/09/2012)
Bomb proof Review by Corona
Overall rating
Amazingly solid and well made piece of kit. I can only imagine that if I hit something hard enough to total the bash plate it would have split the bike in half.

After a year of use I have noticed that due to the weight some of the BMW rubber mounting bolts have failed. The metal head separates from the rubber vibration isolating centre. This can lead to some weird vibe noises which alerts you to the fact that they have gone. I have gone through two so far at £4 each which is a little bit of a pain.

Tightening the mounting bolts as little as possible and then using thread lock seems to help protect the rubber while making sure the bolts don't shake out. (Posted on 05/06/2012)
