Whatever you decide on, I can probably supply it.

Transporter said I must mention his name, then you will give me a bag like his that fits on the petrolcap ring for a good price  :pot:  :biggrin:

They are used in between the spacers for your rear-shocks. :mwink:

Nope - seriously - the one major weak point of the GSA design is the spotlights. They break with the smallest fall and at R 2500 per spot... this little investment allows you to move the spots above the bar, and out of harm's way!

My favourite nice to have would be the 21"wheel mod.

That is awesome! That would be my very first nice to have mod in the GSA. How much did it set you back?

Other than the bar raisers (essential), I would do the Exhaust - almost essential!

The 1200 GSA crash bars is designed in such a way in that when you have a low side those paper thin aluminium covers that fit over your cylinder heads just get ripped off. Then you probably have a bit to a lot of damage on the actual covers themselves.

Also found that the aftermarket covers despite looking tougher don’t stand a change when you put the weight of a GSA behind it.

The old 1150 GSA had better crash bars in that they actually went around the cylinder heads. Found these jobbies at Wundrlich and tested them with a low side at about 60km/h without a scratch on the engine covers. According to me one of the needed mods on a GSA that should have been there from day one.

I think BMW makes a fortune in selling those aluminium covers and new piston head covers on the GSA.

I suppose I should have known that all farkles are priced in multiples of R500 or R1000    (pity there's no vaseline smiley...  :mwink:)
