The War Pig is Complete............I Think!
Well to make a long story short, I sold my last GS Adventure when my company sent me to South Africa for a year and it was almost impossible to get it imported. I instantly regretted selling it but at least it was in good hands. Another FF on here (HORSEMOTO) bought it and put 40,000 miles on it the year and a half I was gone. He says it is still going strong with no issues so I'm glad he has enjoyed it!

So I spent that year and some change planing my next GSA build, what would I do, farkles, wheels, suspension exhaust etc??? I returned home in August and purchased a new 2012 GSA in late October. So here it is and I can say I am pretty happy with the changes I have made so far!

A few of the major changes I have made are as follows:

Ohlin's ESA suspension
Woody's super light, super laced wheels
Galfer wave rotors front and rear
Akrapovic race header with no cat
High flow K&N filter
Power Commander V and custom dyno tune
Sargent seat
GPR steering damper
BMW Navigator GPS
Altrider skid plate and guards
Machineart Moto front and rear fender extenders
Machineart Moto Valve cover guards
And much more little items......

I also have a brand new set of Heidenau K60's waiting in the garage for warmer weather.

yeah war pig.

Well all I can say is the difference is night and day: the lean decel pop is completely gone, the hesitation and lag between 4000 and 5000 RPM's is gone and the throttle response is immediate. It basically just smoothed out the power and took away the annoying "lean conditions" they have on the bike to make emissions standards.

Worth every penny!!!!

Did you go with the stock size woody wheels or the 21/18" combo?

It's not the factory can, I have the Akrapovic pipe as well.
