Mine too.....

My 2013GS grips are not very hot as well. I've had about 12 1150GS/1200GSs and they were all hotter. I ride in a lot of cold weather....these suck.

not sure....

not sure on the part #s, looks right from memory. I would have got a less expensive version (just rebound adj) but this was all they had.....is nice to have full adjustment though....

New Stuff?

No new stuff in this thread? I had to go a long way back to find it (I miss this thread). I put Ohlins on my non ESA 2013GS, now available. Will take pics soon.

rear brakes....

Mine (rear) were metal on metal at 12,000mi, at an off road rally, didn't notice due to sand and grit...cooked the rotor. NEVER crossed my mind that I'd have to keep an eye on rear pads at 12,000mi....
