Update. I have been  in contact with my Motorrad dealer about the noise from the engine.  I also sent them a copy of the BMW notice. They have no knowledge of this notice before now and have been in contact with BMW Motorrad UK about it and are awaiting further information from them. Hopefully next week.
The dealer thinks it could warrant an investigation and inspection of the affected parts but they are not aware of a modified part number for the rocker arm, so thinks that if there is any premature wear in the arms, they would have to be replaced with the old type rocker arms.
I will update further when I know more.

I have the Touratech progressive springs on my 2019 F750 with ESA. I found it was a good upgrade especially for the front. The front no longer dives  as much when braking. It also stiffens both front and rear on larger bumps at full compression.

That's heavy!
I don't know whether you have a centre stand, but that is not part of the basic equipment and I am sure that the centre stand and its attachment mechanism alone would be a one of the main culprits for the "weight increase".

Forgot about that! Yes. I have the centre stand!

Greetings:

I have a 2020 750GS, and I find that even with modest braking, the front end dives considerably. 

1.  Does anyone have any experience with the Touratech upgraded suspension with progressive front and rear springs. (Link below). 

2. If so, I have ESA; can I still use the Touratech rear spring with the ESA?

3.  If not the Touratech product, any suggestions for other products?

Thanks in advance.

Did you also have to file a bit to get the screw through (like in my pic?)

I'm looking into some spray to fix up the cosmetic damage I've acquired already.

I just installed on my 2019 850 and everything fit with one left over nylon nut. Of the 4 hex bolts, I know 3 are the same size and I believe the one with threading all the way to the head was smaller as that goes on the left side. Big spacer goes on the right and small on the left. I think they welded some spacers on instead of having them loose. I also had to use a T25 to unscrew a plastic cover on the left side to get to one mount point. After the screw is off it took a while to build the courage and just yank on it and there I found it has a rubber socket holding it on with the torx screw, so pulling it off is how to do it. Unless something was way off you may have put it on wrong which is why stuff didn't line up. I had to slowly watch the video a bunch of times as I installed to see what pieces he had in his hand. It wasn't very clear the left side stand mount goes behind the point and then washer and bolt goes on.

I'd say a visit to the dealer is in order.

The crash bars (according to motortek) should weight 6.3kg and the pannier rack 2.2 kg.

So that leaves 16.5kg for my additions (noting that the mirrors were 'replaced').

BMW notes that their weight is give with 90% tank filled, so their weight is off 1.5 litres (or roughtly 1.2 kg).
