Name that GS fastener!

What type is the head of the sidestand pivot through-bolt on my 2002 R1150GS? I can't see the danged thing because I've got the bike up on blocks, sitting on the sump guard. I can't tell if it's...

sump guard tough enough?

Is the sump guard tough enough to support the entire weight of the 1150GS for a week? I'm swapping front and rear shocks, plus centerstand and sidestand, with an ADV. Each of us is shipping the...

Duplicolor tire pen

Oops. I should have spent a few more minutes researching. I've found a product from Duplicolor called "Hot Tires", a tire marking pen which comes in white, yellow, and red.

Anyone have experience...

shorter GS torque arm

I note that boxer-design sells a 345mm torque arm as a "short" option for GS and Adventure. Their web page for this product at http://www.boxer-design.us/zaraleveerr1150radv.htm does not quantify the...

Jim,

I checked the beemerboneyard site. The pages they have for paralever torque arms indicate that the 365mm GS arm can be used to raise the ride height of R/RT/RS and standard S models....

Quicker steering is what I'm after. It's the desired effect. There seem to be plenty of 1150GSs around with 17" front wheels. That mod quickens the steering by dropping the front end. I figure I can...

cortech sport tailbag

Thanks for the tip on the sport tailbag, HiFi. I've been eyeing that one, too. I think it'll look slick in place of the GS's pillion pad.

ditch the rubbers

Simply removing the rubber inserts from the stock pegs gives a little more roominess. It's a cheap "fix", and worth a try before you plunk down any bucks for replacement hardware. I have never...

"normal" bars

The OEM handlebar is 22mm, which works out to .866 inch. Seven-eighths of an inch (the "normal" handlebar) is .875 inch. This is close enough. The BMW clamps grasp a 7/8ths handlebar just fine. The...
