I am thinking about installing upper crash bars on my F800GS Adventure and that got me wondering why BMW never installed crash bars similar to the ones found on the 1200 GS Adventure which cover the upper fender  / tank area.

It seems that there are not too many options out there yet for the F800GSA, but so far I've found bars from the following manufacturers:

Rockfox - (local which is a plus)

Hepco & Becker

SW-Motech

I'd be keen to hear other members thoughts.

I got mine from Wild@Heart, and they have survived 3 times so far....

Thanks Danie,

Do you have the F800GS or GSA? The GS bars won't fit on the GSA.

I have a 2011 model, but it might be worth to check with Johan from Wild@heart....

I've checked wild@heart a few weeks ago and they don't have anything to fit the 800gsa

Yep, I was there today and they dont have anything to fit the GSA. Looks like its between the Hepco & Becker bars and the Rockfox bars for me.

So folks, here is an update from my end. 

Rockfox crashbars fitted to my F800Adv. Very cool looking set of bars.

Great stuff. The one I saw when I was there looked different to this one. I'll come through this afternoon.

Just fitted these which I got from

Easy to fit and made for the GSA to fit the OEM bottom bars.

Nice! How's the spacing between the radiator? Are you able to post a few pics of your own. 

 I'm at Flyingbrick contemplating between that and SW Motech one.
