Hi mates, thanks for having me. Iím picking up my 22 f850gsa in a few days and canít wait. Will have to wait for some of the factory fitted things that come with the bike to be install in a few weeks - rear pannier racks and heated grips. Apparently bmw had some supply issues with these but needed to get bikes out so the parts are following them. Looking forward to gaining much gs knowledge from all you amazing people😉👍

I ordered a JT set to replace stock setup. Front sprocket is wrong. Bike tore down. Any leads on 16T availability besides JT?

Set arrived on the 25th, I fitted it up today. To my disgust the JT countershaft sprocket that came with the kit didn't fit, when I used a spare i had that was sold to me for an f800, the spare fit perfectly.

I don't know what it is about JT, but I have ordered them for various bikes and none of them fit correctly. The machine tolerances on them are complete sh---.

The same just happened to me. Bike in pieces and no sprocket.

Suspension Set-up and Mods / Re: F750 Dynamic ESA and Lowering
« Last post by 999pablo on May 22, 2022, 05.33 am »
I have the Touratech springs. They are progressive so when the bike is off the kick stand it is about an inch (30mm) lower than stock under itís own weight. After that they are progressively firmer. The ESA still functions as it should. The forks donít dive as much in braking and feel firmer. Overall it is an improvement. The downside is the kick stand is too long since the bike is lower. If you set the ESA to rider plus luggage itís ok but then it kind of defeats the purpose. I normally ride with it set with luggage even though I just have a light weight soft bag because I think I corners better. Itís also harder to get it on the center stand. Even with those issues Iím still happy with the result.

Suspension Set-up and Mods / Re: F750 Dynamic ESA and Lowering

Dynamic ESA uses a suspension height and movement sensor to fine tune the suspension on the fly. If you lower the suspension this sensor cannot work properly.

BMW knew what they were doing by removing ESA from factory low suspension bikes. More headaches than it's worth to try and out engineer the manufacturer.

Suspension Set-up and Mods / F750 Dynamic ESA and Lowering
« Last post by Kino888 on May 21, 2022, 04.02 am »
Greetings,

Apologizes if this has been covered before, but I could not find a thread that answered my question. Iím looking to get a F750 GS. Being a shorter rider, Iíd like to learn what my options would be to lower the bike AND keep the dynamic ESA. What I know so far:
-low seat
-factory lowering suspension (removes Dynamic ESA)
=about 30 inches high

30 inches seems perfect for me. Is the Dynamic ESA worth it? WHat would be some other options? I know Touratech has some lowering springs. Are these recommended or do they result in a lower performance Dynamic ESA?

Thanks All.
