If you google issues with F 800 BMW you'll find out plenty. Main issues are wheel bearings, stators and fuel pump filters from what I can glean.


Not sure if that is one of the BMW models made in China or not.

A riding buddy of mine had the ST version. He had a few issues (wheel bearings) with his and seemed to like it well enough but did not keep it very long. He rides a MT10 now.

I know of a rider that absolutely loves his 800GT and has ridden it trouble free for about 40,000 miles. I've heard this parallel twin with the unusual "third connecting rod" counterbalancer can have some vibration of the buzzy kind at higher rpms. A test ride might be in order to see if you fit the bike and if the engine vibration is a put-off.
