No problem getting parts for a 2004 1150GS. Now, the shop may not have them in stock, but can get them within a few days usually.

I don't think you'll have any problem getting most any part from BMW dealers. I recently needed some parts for my bike
( an'02) and was able to order online and have it shipped to my door in three days! (thanks Max BMW)

There also is still good aftermarket support.

Just buy it!

most parts a readily available and most are expensive
but once you get past that the GS platform is a
great motorcycling experience.



but... get a HES and a clutch slave in your spares

There are owners who are routinely riding and maintaining BMW motorcycles much older than 2004. Hank comes to mind. His GS is a late 90s model if I'm not mistaken, and he has over 500,000 miles on it and recently rode it to South America.

BMWs have a strong following with many owners keeping their BMWs for decades. As such, there are plenty of OEM as well as aftermarket parts available.

Also, BBY has good used parts as well as new.

Its not a I -Phone where you can't get a battery after 2 1/2 years.
On cars and bikes its normal to have a 15-20 year parts supply guarantied from manufacture.

Max BMW built a mid 70's R90s from all new parts bought through BMW. They had to get a few parts used (swingarm and frame I think).

Its one of the great things BMW does, support the older models. My 02 GS is the most modern bike I own (not counting the DRZ dirtbike).

Don't worry, these bikes are so popular there will be parts for years to come.
Great machines

If they can build an R90s from the parts catalogue I think they'll have parts for the 1150s for a while to come.
