G/S dedicated thread for various upgrades

The idea in a nutshell:

I like to suggest this thread to be a specific and dedicated place where only R 80 G/S UPGRADES or IMPROVEMENTS are discussed, ideally explained with pictures to get a better idea. This would make it a lot easier to locate topics of interest and less time consuming when compared with going through other inmates personal thread, hoping to find the desired upgrade.
This site benefits greatly from those very savvy inmates that have their personal thread for their specific custom-built bike. Lets include those threads with a keyword mentioning the specific upgrade that was addressed. Let's include knowlegable mechanics, parts suppliers that offer G/S parts, because not everybody has the machine-shop in house, years of tinkering experience, a ton of time or the extra funds. But we could still share their expertise, their willingness to help by creating space within this thread.

This thread could be "THE G/S COMPLETE UPGRADE MANUAL" showing ideas HOW TO CREATE a better performing, safer, more comfortable or cooler bike with one touch of a button. Nothing more, nothing less.


UPDATED March 10.2010

Found this thread's last use back in October of 2009. Clearly making the statement that my initial ideas for this threads intended use has failed. A thread that is not used in half year is of no use to anybody that has just purchased a G/S , because he would only come across it by screening the first 35 pages in this forum. As there is some good info in this thread that is worth circulating, I thought why not screen the first 35 pages and see if there is anything relevant to the G/S. Of course there is plenty, like maintenance, repairs, upgrades, trips....

So I am suggesting that this thread become more like a place where links could be listed to inmates personal threads. It would show the title and who contributed it. I have only screened till October 2009, if there is someone that wants me to add other threads that I have missed within this period and later, I 'll be glad to add them.



Topics handled in the first seven pages :

Luggage
Sidestand
Frontbrakes
Turnsignal relocation
Rear tire size options
Subframe - reinforcing
