GSA & GS seat

They are NOT interchangeable. I just had a Russell Day Long built for my GSA. They offered a GS seat to ride around while my seat was being made. It didn't fit. I believe it's has to do with the...

I left my booster plug installed when I added the AF-XIED and my bike (2013 F800GSA) could not be any smoother. I'm really happy with the combination and have had zero problems or concerns since the...

Got to test out my AF-XIED today on my 800GSA. Did around 90 miles half highway and half up in the hills in first, second and some third gear roads. What a difference! Everything seems so much...

Leaving In

Thanks Roger. Having read this entire thread and a few others, I'm planning on leaving the BP in. If things don't work out, which I doubt, I'll remove it and try again. But I think you and others...

You're right

Warin - I agree. I guess I was being a bit flippant. I'll try to find the bad wire. I'm going camping up behind Big Sur next week and I was just excited about getting it working.

New (to me) R100GS PD

I just bought a beautiful R100GS PD but there was no Owner's Manual. My first question is, do I feed it regular gas or does it require premium gas like the newer GS's?
