Believe me, my head is on a swivel for every motorcycle I hear--and surprisingly, I have only seen one 1200 GS down here 2 days ago. I was expecting to see quite a bit more big bikes down here making the journey.

I measured the shimming last time, and the existing shims were okay. I'll do the same again on this one, too.

Thanks! I appreciate your feedback and thoughts!

(Heat will help break the lock nuts and if you do find a spare make sure you get the shimming right as I have known a new one to fail after only 5,000km with incorrect shimming)
