About

The BMW F650 was a bike that was meant to appeal to a new type of customer. Revolutionary as the F650 was, its development followed the usual BMW pattern: after the first Funduro came the ST tourer and the GS on/off roader. Enter the parallel-twin F800. The F800 S and ST were intended to appeal directly to buyers of mainstream Japanese bikes. Hence the conventional telescopic forks and belt final drive. Bikes designed to be all things to all men often end up bland, not the F800. It started life as the half-faired S and the touring-oriented ST before getting the GS treatment in its second model year. The next F800 model was another revolutionary step; the R model, which like the GS models had chain drive and a conventional double-sided swinging arm. At Haynes, we have an extensive range of BMW repair manuals and online maintenance procedures available for professional mechanics and DIY car enthusiasts. Our BMW F800 repair manual is perfect for guiding you through each procedure while servicing or repairing your motorcycle.
