BMW 1100GS vs 1150GS final drive gear set swap

I did this very same modification last week.

I had a allen-key (socket drive) and a heat gun that pumps out enough heat to make the screwed in axles come out easily.

How to fit a sidecar to the left hand side of a GS

Riding two-up is great fun but there's not a lot of room for those big maps.

Our new project is to fit a what I think is a Southern Cross Electra sidecar to my 2002 R1150GS.

Question Can't take it with you but ...

It's been a long time since I've had a flat tyre.

Could have benefited from the practice of fixing it myself but decided to remove the wheel of my R1150GS and take it to one of the few bike shops...

He helped restore my seat to it's former glory.

Tyres for an R1150GS

My last two sets of tyres for my GS have been Metzler Tourances.

R1150GS Sargent seat - am I the only one?

I'm probably not as excitable (read full-on R1150GS riders) as some readers and so was surprised when my Sargent pan failed. Certainly out of warranty ~ 6 years and 20000 miles but disappointed...

I've been down this path too!

I rebuit a Premier sidecar chassis and made a series of mounts that allowed me to "bolt-on" the sidecar. I consider there to be some improvements over the old design. Used a trailer plug to allow...
