F800GT

Does anyone have one of these, if so, what are your thoughts? Can the 15l tank capacity be increased, has anyone done this?

Karl

Paul Davies had one - may be along to answer soon and I have a F800ST which is very similar.
As it is an underseat moulded plastic tank I would not see how it's capacity could be easily increasesd.
They'll do 180 miles on a tank though, and if I was more careful with the throttle, it would probably manage 200.

My wife has a f800r, and can manage in excess of 70mpg with a gentle right hand, and it only has a fly screen so the GT should be a little more aerodynamic :mrgreen:

there's a chance that with a bit of creative-ness you could fit a camel tank, the GS variant has a kit available and as they have a similar setup it could possibly be done
