Re: Modeysikuls.

I was originally going for just a 170 bbk and cam ($300), but then saw the 4v head, fancy exhaust, clutch cover... adds up. Haven't broken it in yet. I'd highly recommend the Kitaco clutch cover for a stock bike though, getting rid of that oil spinner improved the throttle response by a ton. Add some heavy duty clutch springs and high flow oil pump while you're in there too.

And yeah they're stunt pegs. I'm saving up for a dual rear caliper bracket and handbrake setup, but I mostly do staggered now anyway.

They pop up down here all the time on CL used. That is about the average price for that many miles. Keep in mind 55k miles on an adventure bike is a lot of miles. The other thing is, BMW's cost a LOT to maintain one they start hitting that many miles. Especially if the shaft drive gives out.

Now, they are good bikes, and will go 100k miles. You just have to pay for the upkeep. The suspension will need to be replaced eventually, the shaft serviced (hu hu...he said shaft service)
valves, seals, all that other good stuff.

Re: Modeysikuls.

Disagree on mileage.  GSAs are easily 150k-200k mile bikes and tend to have more fastidious owners IMHO.  Agree on maintenance costs, Bimmer premium.

Same thing/price, ~half the mileage? It's a question b/c I'm not sure if it's exactly the same, much less the add-ons.

Not an adventure model.  Differences aren't enormous, but are certainly notable.

Re: Modeysikuls.

I thought the only ones with spoked rims were the ADV models? confused

*edit* Whoops, he confirms below. GSA = GS Adventure. Derp.

Re: Modeysikuls.

Yep, non-standard wheels on that GS.  GSA differences are actually more than I remembered.  Bigger tank, crash protection, longer suspension travel, lower gearing, overall taller and heavier.

Comparing wet weights, your S10 has 11 lbs on the '16 GSA.

This is mine currently:

Put in a 170cc cylinder and piston, 4 valve head, 34mm throttle body, intake and pod filter, new ecu, oil spinner deleted, few other misc things. Currently making somewhere around 24-26ish hp compared to the stock 8 hp. It's an animal to ride with this short wheelbase.

Did you change the rear sprocket size?  Would it do well on the highway?

Do you plan to add an oil cooler?

Re: Modeysikuls.

Got a few new farkles  banana

Grabbed a new set of soft panniers from a member on the ADV Rider forum. Nelson Rigg CL-855's 29 liters per site. They replaced my worn out Givi Explorer bags. I like them a lot so far. They have rigid inserts so they hold their shape well, but are still light and have the positives of soft luggage that fit's my needs.

Then I ran across a matching tank bag on ebay. For $30, I had to grab it.

Not long after that, I ran across a Yoshimura RS4 pipe....for $190 shipped! Man, lucky me! It is in great lightly used shape, and sounds pretty awesome.

I already got a vag OBD cable and downloaded Tuneecu. I re-flashed the bike with the factory Triumph Arrow tune to pick up a little bump in power and complement the pipe.

Next up is new tires for my b-day in July. Then she will pretty much be decked out and ready for whatever!

Re: Modeysikuls.

Ah man, those are supposed to be awesome bikes! Is that a Shinko or Fullbore on the back? I just put a set of Fullbore's on mine and really like them. But for Alaska, you may consider a more aggressive tread
