No problem here at 185,000 km. BTW if your bike has kept idle for years, beware of moisture in the brake fluid. Change it yearly. On the command and caliper channels.

Lowering the front by an inch must definitely change the rake. Perhaps it should also include lowering the rear end by the same amount.

The VT500 was indeed shaft driven. And that was a hell of a bike. I'd ride one anytime.

I definitely beg to differ. If the later 1200GS sold for $5k, I doubt owners of 1150gs would ask $4.5k for their's. If the 1200GS is more expensive, then 1150gs will follow. Very simple reasoning.
