Description

Details

A 4mm thick Adventure-Spec sumpguard for use on the BMW F800GS (all years). Can also fit the F650GS Twin and F700GS with the addition of the BMW bashplate fitting kit BMW Part Number 71607704773. This guard is also used on the F800GS Adventure when it is fitted with our Adventure-Spec crashbars CB0029

This update to one of our most popular products with well over 1000 sold,  offers slightly altered styling to complement the 2013+ bikes plus an extended bottom plate to fully enclose the catalytic converter. 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. Please read all the excellent feedback, reviews and questions on our original guard by clicking here

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 available for the BMW F800GS.

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.

Questions on Adventure-Spec Bashplate BMW F800GS Adventure (plus F650GS F700GS F800GS) for use with Adventure-Spec Crashbars

  • From Andy at 21/12/2013 05:13
    • Hi there,
      wanna know if the new bashplate for the F800GS will interfere with the main stand bashplate from Touratech? The new Adv Spec bashplate seems longer at the back compared to the earlier version.
      Thanks, Andy.
    • Andy,

      The new Adventure Spec plate removes the need for the centre stand bashplate as it now covers the CAT to the rear of the engine as standard.

      Hope that helps.

    • Hi,

      Will this new Adv. Spec Bashplate interfer with the center stand on the bike? I got a F8GS from 2012.

      Cheers
      Göran
    • Göran,

      The new bashplate is designed to work perfectly with the bike centre stand.

      Hope that helps.

    • Does the revised bash plate work with the Remus headers on a 2014 f800gs?
    • Ian,

      We have no info on that yet as we haven't tried them. But, as the front of the design is very similar I doubt that they will without modification.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From NEIL MCGUIRE at 20/04/2014 12:57
  • From Bill at 03/01/2015 01:03
    • I note the question from 1 year ago that you weren't yet sure if this bash plate will fit with the Remus headers - can you now confirm whether Remus headers are compatible?
    • Bill,

      We have been told that they can be made to fit with modification, but in standard trim they are not compatible.

      Ride safe.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From Robert at 24/02/2015 00:41
    • I have your crash bars and love the fit and finish and now I want to ad the skidplate. How much trouble is it to change the oil with this plate installed? Thanks, I await your answer so I can place an order
    • Robert,

      We have a hole in the bottom of the plate to allow you to remove the oil, but to replace the filter you will need to remove the bashplate. This is very simple and requires you to unscrew two bolts and four nuts. The mounting points all stay in place so replacement is also very simple, you just locate the bashplate back on the mounting bolts and screw the nuts back into place.

      We hope that helps

Brilliant Review by Ramale on
Brilliant " by , written on 24 July 2016
Great product. Looks good when fitted. But fiddly to fit front bracket basically you fit the plate twice to make sure through nut is tightened properly. Maybe a bit of redesign require there with possible angle line marks to show correct position. Also in the instructions state V notch upper most would also help front bracket fitting.

Just done a 1600 mile trip around Scotland and great piece of kit did a good job of protecting front and under bike. F800 GSA.

Good product. Customer service--not so much Review by GSA rider
Good product. Customer service--not so much" by , written on 2 February 2015
Bashplate is strong and well made and was real easy to install so, pretty happy with that part. However, I was very surprised that the product was shipped in a box that was at least twice as large as it needed to be (easily could have fitted 2 bashplates and still have plenty of extra room) and it consequently cost an arm and a leg to ship excessive dead-space overseas. I was very disappointed with Adventure-Spec's responses for not trying to keep shipping costs down. Customer service aside, the bashplate itself scores high.

***We do all we can to keep shipping costs down, although the bashplate itself is wedge shaped and leaves a space in the box we are charged on the largest three dimensions of the item shipped using a formula called 'volumetric weight'. This means we have to multiply the length x height x width of the item in cm and then divide by 5000 to get the shipping weight. Once we do this for a bashplate it works out the same to ship it in a cuboid shaped box as it does in a wedge shaped one. BUT, it helps us keep costs down by not having specially shaped boxes manufactured.***

A very well built bashplate Review by davss
A very well built bashplate" by , written on 7 August 2014
I have this mounted on my F800 GSA 2014 and must say really like it. It's brand new bike and didn't get a change to go off-road yet but it'll get a proper test soon so will write again if find any faults with it.
One is that I have been looking for a tool box to attach to it and unfortunately there is no product from Adventure-Specs :( They also cannot recommend any that's 100% compatible so it's a bit of a guess now... I'd rather have something designed to work with this bashplate.
