Your bike reminds me of my last GS....basically the same build....an outstanding motorcycle for sure.
Okay add a few dollars to the total. Ball park total.

Check out this thread. Dyno testing a '12 R1200GS with full Akro system with Power Commander
OP said he saw no difference in performance with air filters but Bobby says his experience shows UNI filters do improve numbers.

Mine was only dynoed after the installation of exhaust, air filter and the PC-V. I can't comment on the K&N filter adding horsepower or not. I like the idea of cleaning and reusing it as opposed to paying BMW for a new one every 6K miles. Thats all.

Forgot the Fastway adventure pegs (large) and the Hammerhead design shift lever.

The pegs are great, I have size 13 boot and they make a huge difference, especially when standing up. The shift lever is a half inch longer for my big feet and helps as well. If you do the Fastway pegs use lock tight, I got in a hurry and didn't and have already lost two cleats.

Bought mine in Red, but that's by far my favorite color!




If you ride them through the creek, they self-clean.........here's a shot of mine on a little VA weekend run.

That looks like the gas pumps in Cold Foot. That's a great ride up the Dalton.
