Questions on Adventure-Spec Rear Rack BMW F650GS/F800GS

  • From Robert at 03/04/2013 14:10
    • I have the wolfman luggage racks on my '10 F800GS, will this rear rack be able to fit on my bike?
    • I am not familiar with the mounting points of the wolfman luggage racks, but I am almost certain that they will use the same points as our rear rack. We fit the rack with spacers, so by modifying the length of these (or maybe removing them altogether) you will almost certainly be able to get the rack to fit. However, I doubt very much that it will fit without modification.

      Sorry I can't be any more specific.

    • I just bough a second hand f800gs and it came with this rack in one of the panniers but it didn't come with any of the fittings for it.
      Is it possible to purchase just the nuts/bolt/spacers from your selves?
    • Hi James,

      Unfortunately we do not supply the fitting kits as a seperate item. Perhaps you could ask the guy you got the bike from how he fitted it.

  • From Dallas at 13/09/2013 09:10
    • I have a f800 GS 2012 with hepco Becker lock it panniers. Will the mounting bolts in the kit be long enough to work with this? I think the bolts would need to be about 60 to 65 mm long.
      Regards
      Dallas
    • Dallas,

      I can't tell you if the rear rack works specifically with the Hepco panniers, but the bolts for the rack are 55mm. These can be easily replaced should you need to to as they are a standard size of part. In the UK I would recommend checking westfieldfasteners.com who would sell you a stainless replacement part 70mm long for approx 0.33 pence.

      I hope that helps.

    • Hi.

      I have a F800GS 2012 with BMW confort seat and the bag is a BMW SOFT BAG 2 Large.
      Does the Adventure-Spec Rear Rack BMW F650GS/F800GS work well with those itens?

      Thank you


      Eugênio
    • Eugênio,

      We don't test our product ranges with all combinations of products so we can't be totally sure if this will work perfectly with your setup, Sorry.

  • From Graeme at 27/06/2015 01:05
    • I have a 2014 BMW F800GSA. Will the Gs800 rack fit and will it take a topbox?
      Regards
      Graeme
    • The F800GS rear rack will fit the F800GS Adventure. The rack isn't designed for a specific topbox fit, but it has been done. You may need spacers/modification to get the topbox of the 'flick' at the rear of the rack.

      Hope that helps.

  • From greg at 30/06/2015 05:42
    • I received my rack but it did not come with installation instructions and it is not obvious how/where to attach the rack. Are there instructions online somewhere?

      Thanks
      Greg
    • There aren't any instructions online. Simply put, one set of bolts go through the grab handles into the rear structure of the bike, while the other set go directly into the structure further back. The raised lip on the rack is oriented to the rear. The spacers go between the grab handles/rack or directly between the bike/rack.

      Hope that helps

    • Hello,

      Will this rack fit my 2003 F650 GS Dakar?

      Thanks,
      Jason
    • Hi

      No, this is for the F650 and F800 twins, not the single

  • From stefan at 06/12/2017 18:45
    • I have a 2009 F650GS Twin with the BMW Vario (Expandable) panniers and attaching frames. The attaching frames use the forward pair of bolt fittings. Will this rack still fit?
    • We think the Vario panniers use the forward bolt fitting below the front of the rear handles. This rack uses the four bolts on the back of the tail unit, so it should be out of the way there. It is 330mm wide at its widest.

      Hope that helps.

    • Does this fit on a 2017 F700GS?
    • We've not tried them on the 2017 model but it definitely fits the earlier models so we expect no problems.

      Hope that helps

    • Yes, there have been no major changes to that bike that would change the fit.

Sturdy, but bad finishing Review by GS
Sturdy, but bad finishing" by , written on 21 November 2018
It‘s a plate...so it is sturdy. But the finishing is just not good enough. It looks already like 10 years old.

***Adventure Spec Says***
Thanks for the review. We'd like to know how old the rack actually is, in case there is a problem with the anodising we can help with. So please do contact us directly!

Many thanks,
Adventure Spec.

A mighty little platform for your rear luggage Review by Two Wheeled Nomad
A mighty little platform for your rear luggage" by , written on 1 December 2016
A mighty little platform for your rear luggage

After ditching a homemade aluminium plate that formerly accommodated a whopping big Peli case come top box, housing my drone, the immediate need arose for a smaller and lighter rear rack replacement. Cue the AS rear luggage plate. The rack is made specifically for the F800GS or F650GS sub-frame for optimal fitment. Upon fitment, no cutting was necessary. Just an easy insertion of the rack.
Installing it without fuss, the mounting system was significantly easier than getting the last solution to fit. Just four bolts and I was good to go. Once in place, the rear rack is rock solid stable. Admittedly, I’ve never been a top box fan, so supplanting that for a more flexible roll bag luggage system, ticked all my boxes from the outset.

What’s more, the construction is second to none: one that looks and is built for the long haul. Thoughtful details run throughout this piece: the holes and slots have been cut away to make symmetrical sloping edges, coupled with all the edges, which have been smoothed to prevent chafing or slashing of the soft luggage. I also appreciate the anodized spacers, enabling the ability to pass the straps through beneath the plate seamlessly. There is a myriad of places in which to secure one’s straps—18 no less!—where the side slots that run parallel, comfortably facilitate the wider straps, giving rise to a more secure fastening.

We have bought multiple products for F800GS series BMW. I purchased on a Monday and these items arrived on Thursday the same week! Superb craftsmanship. Thoughtful group, they went out of their way to accommodate an item not in their current stock to ensure rapid shipping for my up coming trip I had planned. That is service.

Good But..." by , written on 25 November 2012
Purchased this rack for my F800GS in September '12. Looks good and easy to fit. Easily carried all my gear for my annual 2000m European trip. My only quibble is the finish is starting to wear and I'm seeing a purple undercoat coming through!

Excellent fit" by , written on 14 July 2012
This is the first bit of 'Farkle' for my F650GS, and I'm well impressed.
I just need to find out what Top Box fits on it...but for the 'ahem' price...it's a very nice bit of kit...the fittings are also top quality so you definitely get what you pay for...
