On the Boxertoko GS the swing arm is lengthened by welding 2 original GS sw arms together.
I think thats the only reason that they moved the top shock mount. (they wanted to use the bmw/WP shock)

Shortening the torque arm to much might reduce wheel travel....!!!!!

Realize this is reviving an old thread on one somewhat offtopic post in it - but had this thought today after seeing/reading all the threads on "G/S-ifying" R80STs combined with some recent threads on the increasing scarcity of r100gs and/or gspds. Has anyone "GS-ified" or "GSPD-ified" a R100R? If that is a stupid and/or unworkable thing - as a mechanical "Grasshopper" I will humbly recieve my lashings.... But was just curious...

I did that to an R100R once.

Very nice! Figured if anyone - you might have done something like this.

Really wondering though if anyone's going to the trouble and expense (perhaps to spendy to be worth it?) to get the parts like fairing, crashbars/headlight guard, (tank & fender if going for PD) etc. to make it look like a "factory" GS or PD?

Many of the PD body parts (including the Tanks) are no longer available from BMW. They are going to get harder and harder to find.
