No Problems

I had a seat done for my 1150 GSA a few years ago. Spent the day there. December was a slow time for him. He spent plenty of time getting it right. Rich is a little different but funny. I listened to...

Huh?

There must be someone out there with some knowledge? The clock reset is annoying, but I am most concerned about a bigger electrical problem. Anyone????

02 GSA Clock problem

Hey gents, I have an '02 GSA that recently had a completely dead Odyssey battery due to lack of use (my bad), and maybe a GPS left on. Charged it up and took it on a 350 mile day ride with multiple...

Styrofoam

Since styrofoam is one the most difficult of all things to dispose of, I have a hard time believing that a well cared for helmet is junk after a few years. Styrofoam is pretty durable. We must have a...

Buy one

Find a good used OEM seat from an inmate who already sprung for a custom. They should be available for the same money you'd spend on buying new material and hassling with getting a good cover job....

I have an 02 GSA with the same problem. My bike leans about as much as yours. I put a hockey puck on the bottom of the sidestand, it helped a little. I pulled it and changed the bolt and bushing...

'02 R1150 Gsa

Love my 1150 GS Adv. It's not the lightest or the fastest. But it is farkeled to fit me and I never tire of riding it. Sometimes wish it had a little more power, but I would probably just go too...

I have an 02 GSA. I average 43 mpg based on odometer mileage. That was also true of 1400 miles of slab riding 70-85mph. 290-300 miles is about max between stations if you don't want to worry about...
