These absolutely DO fit the F700GS w/ low suspension
I was drawn to these for my wife's '17 F700GS, because of the design (solidly frame mounted) and the red-color option which matches the frame color of her F700GS. But I was discouraged to read the note at the bottom of the web page:
"Please Note: Does Not fit models with Low Suspension or with optional original BMW aluminum engine protection. "
That baffled me, because I've maintained and modified several F bikes w/ the low suspension, and could not see how there could be any conflict, given the way these engine guards mount. Since I live reasonably close to the Wunderlich's Watsonville CA location, I arranged to drive her bike there and do a fit check. The Wunderlich staff were skeptical, but when I held them up to the bike I could see no reason they wouldn't fit. To make it short: They do fit, just fine, no issues. I sent some pics demonstrating as much to the folk at Wunderlich and they said they would update the add copy, but as I write this it still states "does not fit". Simply not true.
That said - I like these bars, and I also added the upper protection bar to complete the setup. The color match (Red) to the OEM frame color is spot on, and so they look OEM. The way the bars attach to the frame means they will really hold up when needed. Only two negatives:
1. These are crazy expensive.
2. Wunderlich's instructions are, simply, horrible. I mean really embarrassingly and inexcusably woeful, especially given what you are paying. Which is really nothing new: I have purchased half a dozen Wunderlich farkels over the years, and have been amazed at the poor state of documentation every time. As relates to these bars: You kind of have to figure it out as you go. Once you've done it once you could do it again in an hour, but who does it more than once? Count on three hours. I even used Google translate to try and translate some the the instructions in German back to English to see if I could get a bit more info, and that actually helped. I think they just run the German instructions through a computer translator - I find it hard to believe that anyone who translated them actually tried to use them.
3. As an other reviewer mentioned - the bolt/nut for used at the center stand are not well thought out. The lowered suspension bikes do not have a factory option for a center stand, but my wife's bike has the SW Motech center stand (for low-suspension model) which mounts identical to the OEM center stand, and the way Wunderlich designed their bolt/nut/bushing scheme for the center stand attachment is not, in my opinion, ideal. I ended up using the original SW Motech (same as BMW) bushing and buying my own M10x1.5 45mm bolt and nut and used that collection of hardware for a much better fitment.
I take one star off for the above items, but am happy, and hope Wunderlich updates their web page to remove the incorrect comment about "low suspension" conflict.
The best protection for engine
Excellent protection for engine and wide enough for the rider protection also. Still recommend the upper protection bar, for bike fairing. Installation instructions are not quite straight forward. Protection bars go all the way back trough the g=foot peg not as BMW or Touratech, thus giving side protection to the engine. There are two things that I would improve, engine alternator is a little bit unprotected and the installation (torque tightening) for that part is almost impossible. Also the center stand bolt has to be replaced, the ones provided by Wunderlich are too long (M 10x35 and M10 x 40), they create wear on retract spring(which is dangerous ). I have cut the bolt 5 mm and used thread-lock.
