The only valves I've every adjusted personally were in several 60's & 70's Honda Twins so I do not know personally how to compare them to the cam, oil or hex head.

I went and spoke to the tech who did the work and he wrote down some notes for me. I will try to paraphrase as best as I can.

The 2013 uses finger followers and small shims as its means to open the valves and establish valve clearance. The specifications are as follows:
  • Intake: 0.10 - 0.17mm
  • Exhaust: 0.34 - 0.41mm

These were checked on our bike at 1065 miles. Most of which I put on the bike. Our bike was within specification and the tech did not have to change the shims. As a result of this he did not have to do any disassembly and he is uncertain as to the level of "greif" that may be involved in accessing the shims. Logic dictated to him that the follower shafts should come out so that the followers can come out to access the shims.

Looking at the photo above I see four bolts per cam that look like they would allow you to remove the cam.... The motor is closed up so I cannot go back and look a little closer. Sorry about that Hammick.

Left side Touratech cylinder guard fits with BMW bars, so both are on.

And I fitted the Wunderlich bar risers today as well.

Thanks. Hopefully it is easy to swap shims like the Camheads.

Looking at the parts fiche they are calling them "adjusting plates" rather than the "semi-spheres" on the Camhead and they are actually a little cheaper.

I don't have 2 weeks to read this entire thread, but does anyone have any info on an adventure model? Last rumor I read said that there may not even be one. I want to upgrade but only for a gsa.

Crashbar options

Now that more companies have ramped up to supply aftermarket solutions for the new liquid cooled GS, I thought I would share some impressions of the Altrider set I looked at. Interestingly the main portion of the bar that surrounds the heads is approx. 50% larger than any other bars on the market to date and made of stainess steel to prevent rust. In addition, the bar completely surrounds the upper portion of the head which has the advantage of both providing a nice hollow to stretch out your leg between the throttle body and the bar, (the OEM bars and others do not allow for this as the TB being above the barrel doesn't allow for enough space to rest the leg), and also offers additional protection for the radiators when tipped over, all in a nice compact package. AS you can see in the pictures taken at the Altrider display there is about 1 1/2" of free space--much more than OEM and TT bars for this bike. I ordered the OEM bars for the bike and liked them until I saw the demo which convinced me that they provided inadequate protection. I have ordered a set of these bars to replace my 4 month old OEM bars. Altrider says they should be rolling out of production within a month or two. To me they seem to be worth the wait. The bike represents too large of an investment to accept anything less!

AltRider started losing my business when equal or superior alternatives became available before they could get their production in gear. The posting of drawings of their parts in these forums was a nice touch -- when other's were already shipping.

Instead of AltRiders guards that will be available in a "month or two", I went with HB.

Instead of AltRiders luggage rack, I want with SW Motech - because it was as good and available.

Instead of AltRider's kickstand enlarger I went with Wunderlich - because it was as good and available.

They may eventually have a superior product, but being slow to the market right now loses business.

If I had waited for ATLrider to deliver get their bars made I would have a holed cylinder head today. Having the BMW bars and a set of TT cylinder head guards took all the punishment. I was climbing a rocky road and the rear end snapped 90 degrees. The bike layed down on its left side and was protected by the bars , guards, and the plastic rub strip on the Holan bags.

AltRider bars are available for all the GS's that haven't been sold yet.
They haven't ran out of them. (BMW)

There may be one with my name on it someday. If so, I like those Altriders. :)

This is for the people who do not think that the BMW bars and TT guards work. I had the accident doing about 5mph on loose rocks and this is all the damage that the bike sustained.
