I was pleasantly surprised that the bars were delivered to my door in less than 24 hours with free shipping! Pros: I like the textured paint and they appear to be of sturdy construction. Cons: There are two holes in the upper mt tabs but the upper hole does not line up with the bike so you only can fasten one of two bolts. The upper bolts provided are not long enough to go through the frame, fortunately I had some longer bolts that worked. Also the left (clutch side) bars seem to stick out from the cylinder farther than they need to. Despite these issues they look good and seem sturdy. I hope I never need to test them.

I installed the stainless version of this slip on. The printed instructions that came with it are not very good but the only tricky part is determining where the bracket mounts to the frame towards the back of the muffler. The fit and finish are excellent and it installed on the bike as if it were from the BMW factory. A spring puller tool was provided and made attaching the springs easy. The entire install process took about 15 minutes. The Leo Vince slip on is 8lbs lighter than stock according to my bathroom scale. I created a tool/storage container from 3" pvc and installed it where the short/right can was mounted. This slip on is a bit louder than stock but very acceptable and not too loud. The pipe allows the bike to rev further between gears, particularly in the upper rpm range. I highly recommend this upgrade and the Revzilla service, shipping and price are second to none.

Saddlemen Adventure Track Seat BMW F 650 GS / G 650 GS The Saddlemen Adventure Track Seat is a new, hybrid seat design that combines Saddlemen's exclusive elements of a GEL comfort layer and progressive density foam with a GEL-Channel design to provide Adventure and Dual Sport riders with unparalleled comfort and control. Rugged marine-grade synthetic suede resists the elements while providing the proper balance of grip and comfort under the rider's posterior. The pillion section is covered with high-tech gripper material to help hold cargo in place and is shaped to match the rear rack's height for simplified cargo packing. Integrated bag or cargo mounting points on the pillion match Saddlemen Adventure PACK bags or use them to secure your own load. Also available as an optional heated version that warm the rider's section (front seat only) with 5-levels of heat, operated by remote control, making this seat the dual-purpose saddle you need to circumnavigate the globe. Note Image is for reference only, actual seat may vary slightly.

The Saddlemen Adventure seat is a great replacement for the stock BMW 650 Seat. It is slightly taller than stock but literature included with the seat indicates that it will settle/break in from .5" to 1" within a few hundred miles. It has handy attachment points on the sides of the pillion area for attaching straps or bungees. My first ride with it was 250 miles of mixed pavement and dirt roads/trails. The seat was very comfortable to the point where i didn't think about it, I just rode. The pillion area is also much improved. This is one of the best improvements you can make to the BMW 650 GS. The Revzilla service was great as usual.

I bought this helmet to replace my 3 yr old size lg Shoei Hornet that was getting beat up and fit sloppy. My head measurement is 58cm so I purchased the lg MSR Xpedition on the advise of the Revzilla staff. They were right on! The liner is not as plush as the Hornet but overall It fits my head better. I like that the chin bar fits a bit closer to the face, and the eye port offers excellent peripheral view. My Oakley goggles fit under the shield just as advertised so that too is a plus. The Shoei Hornet chin curtain fits on the MSR and helps reduce minor turbulance. I tried it up to 80 mph on my Sertao and it worked great. With foam earplugs the noise level was very acceptable. This is a great helmet and competes well with helmets that are much more expensive. BTW the free shipping got it to my door in 24hours, very impressive service! I highly recommend this one!

I needed crash bars for a short notice, 3 day dual sport camp trip on my 800 GS. The Revzilla folks tracked down a Givi set from their Reno warehouse. I'm in Chico Ca, they shipped (free) to my door in two days. The Revzilla Rep sent me a confirming email. Not the first time I ordered from them and certainly not the last. Service is outstanding and staff courteous. It took 20 minutes to install the Givi Crash bars. They went on easily, look great. The next morning they were put to the test on an attempt to cross the coast range from hwy 5 to 101 via Covelo through mud and snow. I dropped the bike 9 times and each time it landed on a Givi crash bar and Givi sidecase. Both held up extremely well without a scratch. My friend on a KTM 990 Adv sheered off the KTM side luggage mt on a mild tip over. We secured the KTM bag with a giant zip tie and continued on. I cracked the front fender on a tip over into a snow bank but other than that, no damage to me or the bike. This was an extreme test/ride that I would not attempt without crash bars. Great product, no need to spend more $$ on crash bars.
