Hepco & Becker and SW Motech both make sets.

Just picked up a 2008 red gsa from a fellow inmate Thursday. I guess it was about empty... Put 8.63 gal into it! Book says 8.7 usable...

DId a little 200 mile ride yesterday (up to 87 degrees; sorry Northerners), and the computer says I still have 280 until empty! Loving the bike; great sound, power and comfort. Now if I was only 6'3 I could probably climb on a little easier...

No pic's yet. Can't stop long enough...

fill up again and check the "accuracy" of your FUEL STRIP......
good luck

This post is worthless without pictures. Bro

Thanks Bro,


Yeah, yeah... That's me... i also speak Itlalian (not).
ABS turned off for sure!

Sorry for the lack of pic's, but I can't stop once I get started. Plus, I live in Fl, so there's pretty much sucky scenery around me... I know, the beach, sand etc... But I don't live there....
