I think I've already posted a picture somewhere in this thread, but I don't remember. Anyway, this is my old '95...just hit 210k miles this week. Guess it's almost broken in now.

Wow! Your bike looks great for that many miles! Which exhaust do you have on there? What CCP are you running?

Thanks. It's had it's share of cosmetic issues over the last 17 years. The original plastic tank bubbled up and peeled badly...then my neighbor's son accidentally shot it with a nail gun (long story), so I replaced it with a metal tank from a wrecked 1150. The head covers are scuffed all to hell, so I had them sprayed with bedliner a few years ago. The beak needs a new coat of bedliner, as well since it flexes and the bedliner cracks/peels after a few thousand miles. The engine coating is peeling off everywhere, too. That picture makes the old girl look a lot better than she does in person.

The exhaust is a custom pipe that a fellow in San Antonio cobbled together from an old Two Brothers pipe. He extended, rebaffled and stuffed the can so it's not nearly as loud as a standard (read...obnoxious) Two Bros pipe, but it's a bit louder than stock. To me, it's about the same volume as my KLR, but with a much deeper tone. I hate loud exhausts, but there aren't a whole lot of options for the 1100. I'm completely deaf in my left ear and will be completely deaf in my right ear soon, so I'll rely on others to let me know when the can needs to be repacked again! I dumped the OEM exhaust about 10 years ago when I got worried about heat from the cat baking the "fragile" M94 tranny. I lost over 20lbs in the process, as well.

Forgive my ignorance, but I'm not familiar with the term "CCP." The drivetrain and electronics are all stock...except for the extra wiring for lights, GPS, etc.

Just for reference, this is what she used to look like:

The CCP is a relay/connector chinga that is in the fuse box under the seat. It switches the ECU between various fuel maps to account for whether there's a catalytic convertor, a potentiometer and/or oxygen sensor. The stock one for US bikes is pink.

That is quite a difference between the "Then" and the "Now."

How did you mount the 1150GSA forks? Are they a straight bolt on?
