Share your mileage ?
« on: June 14, 2020, 01:07:49 PM »
Hello,
I am interested to see what kind of mileage forum members have on their F850s.
Please share pictures and thoughts  ?

I purchased this bike in March 2019 . Total Odo. reading : 7615 kms / 1Year 3Months since purchase.
My issues / thoughts:

-Slight oil leak from main gasket at around 5000 kms - Dealer replaced it , no more leaks.
-Quick Shifter is unpredictable, especially when upshifting from 1st to 2nd gear, even above +5000 rpm. Shifting down at any gear is fine.
-Maintenance is too expensive for a flat twin chain driven motorcycle.
-Stock Navigator mount makes Nav6 useless. It has to be removed from the handlebar.

+Bike performs nicely, everything in perfect condition after +7500kms - I am very happy with it.
+Very comfortable everyday bike for touring / commuting once you add a larger windscreen.
+Stock tires are performing nicely on asphalt, i think i will go with anakees again if they need to be replaced.
+This is a very quick motorcycle and i like looking at it.
+BMW made accessories are perfect fit and finish for the bike but they are expensive :159:

We must have bought our bikes at the same time my wife and I picked up our bikes at the end of March last year so I am saying April and 1year 3months as well.

8,884 miles on them as of today... That is 14,297  Kilometers by my math?


Both bikes have been pretty much flawless... I have a set of Anakee Adventures in stock ready to install and I will be doing oil changes on both bikes this week.

Nav 6 relocated and larger WRS screen which is about the same size as the BMW Touring screen for 1/2 the price. This pic was with the old windscreen...

Hello SnoDrtRider,
You must have nice weather all year where you live, i'm glad you and your wife get to ride that often,
How are the chains/sprockets doing on your bikes after almost 9000 miles did you make any adjustments on them ?

Several adjustments so far of the chain on my bike maybe once on my wife's. I attribute that to the fact that I ride a bit more aggressive than her and when we do travel I am the one with the luggage/weight. No sign of the sprocket teeth hooking as yet. I do keep the chains lubed with BelRay Super Clean applying it about every 500 miles or so.
I don't know where we are... but I have been lost here before...

11000km in 10 months.  No problems.  Happier with my 750 gs than with my 1200gs.  4,2 liters/100km.  Anakees still useful.  Hope to get 15000km with them.

Bought new in March this year and just turned 6000 miles (9656 km).   But its been a tough year... Had to cancel one trip due to coronavirus concerns at work and now with all the smoke from the wildfires
on the west coast, I just cancelled another trip.
