The BMW F700GS kit is very compact and includes everything needed to make installation easy. The mounting-kit includes a new one piece billet SUB mount handlebar perch assembly, two adaptor-spacers, 10mm bolts, stainless steel billet frame bracket with adjustable tower pin and a special Torx bit to remove some of the bolts. Also included are the step-by-step illustrated instructions and owner's manual. This kit makes a serious difference in the handling characteristics of this model, and raises the handlebars approximately 20mm and forward about 3mm.
The "mount-kit-only" includes everything excluding the stabilizer. This application requires the damper to be fitted with a -5mm stepped open link arm. The link arm and puller to remove existing arm are included in this kit.
The text below this is generic SUB MOUNT text that does not necessarily apply to the BMW F700GS, which is a unique SUB mount kit.
"SUB" mount stands for Stabilizer Under Bars, originally designed for raising the bars. These kits are designed for use with oversize bars. Bar reducers are available as an option to convert the kit to standard diameter bars, should that be desired. This concept allows more room for other equipment such as a GPS or Enduro/Rally computers, and yet still offer quick access for adjusting the stabilizer. This is also good for the taller rider who wants his bars a little higher, as it raises the bar location approximately 11-25mm, depending on the model of bike. In some cases, you might consider a lower bend handlebar bend at the same time, unless you are trying to achieve a higher bar height along with your stabilizer installation. The SUB mounts are only available on certain models based on the physical limitations of mounting in this area. Each SUB mount comes complete with all necessary parts, hardware and step-by-step" illustrated instructions. If you have any questions, feel free to call or email us.
