Farkles for the 2013 BMW F800GS – ask before buying
It appears that BMW may have changed a few things on their new model. As for the frame, that seems to be the same as previous years so things like skid plates, luggage mounts etc should fit. But other accessories other than BMW parts might not fit. ADV Spec crash bars will not fit…so..hmmmm..has the frame changed too?
. ADV Spec has informed me that they believe their bars will fit as the frame seems once again to be the same as previously stated. They are not sure how their originals will look until they test them out on a new 2013. Stay turned!
We have found out this…our BMW hand guards do not fit as is, Touratech also right now do not have guards for this year bike. That would also mean Barkbuster hand guards need to be tweaked. I am waiting to hear back from them directly but one could assume they are running into the same fit issue.
We also learned yesterday after speaking to Joe @ Cee Bailey that our new enhanced shields won’t either. This is what Joe had to say after looking at the new version of the BMW F800 OEM shield.
The pictures explain it all so feel print it out to show your dealer, the lower mounting portion is completely different, for the mean time I think your best option will be to wait and see until this gets dialed in over the next few months. Also feel free to post this anywhere you like as this will save a lot of time and grief for many riders. When the time comes and we have the offering let me know and we’ll work out a special just for you, BTW we’ve updated our listings to reflect the advisory.

So, for the accessories not attached to your frames I would ask before buying. We have to send back our shields, which is a bummer and patiently wait for third parties to catch up….good news the MOD skid plate and side stand enlarger obviously fit and so will the AltRider crash guards we are thinking of getting.
We presently have Jesse guards but Jesse will not have stock until end of October and we think we might not want to wait. So heed the warning if you want…call and ask before buying accessories. We will stay on top of this little predicament.
