This is my first GS. Picked it up last week and I've already had a few hundred miles of fun in the current sub-zero temps

It's a late '96 model with 70k on the clocks but rides really well. Might be the start of a small collection

Insurance company bought it off me after I threw down the Newell Highway a few months ago. I hear it is on the road again with a new owner and will be going back to Ray Peake for service; good job too, even at 181,000Km it still has heaps of life left.

Your top end is probably the same. The low end was amplified because you ditched the anchor stock exhaust. If you reset the computer, it should remap to the current conditions. I forgot how though.

Did your stock exhaust have a catalytic convertor? If it did, you'll need to change the CCP settings. I'm on my phone so I can't do it, but you do a search for 1100GS CCP settings, you should find a ton of information. There's a plug/relay thing in your fuse box which is called the CCP. No idea what CCP stands for. BMW made different color CCP plugs that would connect to different pins which affect the air fuel mixture depending on different requirements.

If I recall correctly, I jumpered mine to 36 and 87a.

AJ,
by the way: your centerstand angle looks a bit odd to me: standing more skewed like mine & others. Compare the images just above here. You should check the bedstop.

You're welcome. Now that I'm back at work at the HMS Slave Galley, here's a link to where I found the information on the CCP and what the different settings are: LINK

I use a Kreiga US15 as my tool bag. When the panniers are on the bike, its lives in the left pannier. When I'm camping or riding without the panniers, I attach it to the rear plate. You can see it in this picture along with my Kreiga hydration pack. It's the perfect size for my tools and my tire repair kit. I've had it now for 3 years on two bikes and it's dirty but otherwise just like new. Keep everything nice and dry too.
