Installed my 3rd low beam headlight on 2011 GSA with 33K kms on it. Seem to be replacing these bulbs more frequently than I have on other bikes. No big deal.

Wonder why they don't go back to the full 220ml on models with vented FD's?

I started commuting daily on my 1150gs a few months ago. I looked past the surging before, but since commuting have become quite annoyed with it. I recently checked the valves, rocker arm endplay, reset the tps, and balanced the throttle bodies. I started looking into various things to help cure it, and one thing mentioned was a different fuel mapping chip. The previous owner had installed a full remus exhaust and rhinewest chip, which supposedly helps with the surging, and corrects the fueling issues with the full exhaust. So I started researching the rhinewest chip only to discover it contains two fuel maps, one for a stock exhaust and one for a full system like the remus and y pipe. I found out you access the full system map by removing the ccp in the fuse box. So I went out and looked in the fuse box, and sure enough, the ccp hadn't been removed. I popped it out, and went for a ride. Holy shit, its a new bike! The surging is mostly gone, and it feels likes there is a bit more torque throughout the rev range. Also maintenence throttle through corners is less herky jerky, and much smoother. I don't seem to have a dip at 5k revs when accelerating anymore, and there is much less popping when off throttle. I feel bad for the original owner, since he dropped all the dough on the setup, but didn't get the max potential. But I love my gs even more now!

and because pictures of stock fuse boxes can be boring why not a gratuitous bike shot from when I did my annual detail a month ago. It's not always this clean.

Because it is unnecessary.

bought a bags connection bag and a ring from an inmate but the ring was for a tiger so I did some drilling and ground the inside of the ring by 1mm and now it works great. used rivets and screws just to speed along the process. now it's permanent but that's ok with me. does not look bad without the bag.

No problem reading the gauges but I do have a bit of silhouette ghosting of the odo mechanism in the centre. As I don't ride much at night I didn't bother to mask out, from behind, a centre circle to block this ghosting. I had also previously replaced the filament bulbs with LEDs so it is a bit bright for me now. I am going to try some orange filament bulbs to get them to blend more with the fuel gauge/ temp cluster and they won't be as bright at night. If I did more night riding I would probably also think of fitting a dimmer as well as blocking out some of the centre light.

Upgraded the left-side can chain tensioner on my '03 1150GS to the newer version in an attempt to eliminate the startup racket. Success!!! Starts much more quietly now. Took me maybe 30 minutes, but I bet I could do it again in 10. 15 tops. Piece of cake... and money well spent. Parts and shipping were roughly $100 from Bob's BMW. AWESOME service from those guys too... ordered parts last Monday around 11:30 AM, got an email saying they had shipped (FedEx ground) around 2:00 (!)... and they were on my doorstep in SC when I got home from work on Wednesday!

I had planned to follow THIS excellent Hall of Knowledge article, but I ended up skipping some steps making the job even easier/faster. Rather than unhooking the fuel line and removing the fuel injector and it's wiring and all that, I simply loosened the two clamps holding the intake tube in place, slid it into the airbox, removed the two bolts holding the intake flange to the cylinder and just pulled the whole throttle body assembly back away from the cylinder and held it in place with a bungee cord. That gives you all the room you need to access the the tensioner. I also didn't bother trying to fish the tensioner spring out from under the tensioner bolt/tube with a piece of wire... I just pulled the bolt out as far as I could until I could see the spring and then pulled the bottom of the bolt toward the rear of the bike. The spring just folds over and allows it to come on out. If you bend it (I didn't) so what... you're not going to reuse it. Getting the old piston out of the bore with a paperclip as described in the article was very easy... and then it's just a matter of dropping the new one in and putting the other stuff back.

I took BEFORE and AFTER videos with my phone though they don't really do it justice. You can definitely hear the difference in them but it's much more obvious in person. Restarting the engine when it's hot is much quieter now too. Very happy with the result.
