Some good posts, cheers guys. I'll start using the jet wash, but will obviously be careful around the electrics, and wheel bearings. Should make life easier! I've got the air blaster dryer from a...

Jet washing your GS?

I've never jet washed my bikes, and been advised not to, as you can wreck wheel bearings, and electronics, but every dealer I've been to have a guy out the back blasting the heck out of the bikes.

Why not sit on the bike backwards? You'll be able to see everything where you've been, but the only downside is that you won't know where you're going. But that's not the issue here.:D

Cheers for the pictures Jim. Looking at the Maier rear, it doesn't protect the swingarm by the shock enough, and this is an area that will get peppered by stones (my first GSW was covered in them,...

That's based on the pre twin cam 1200, so is far from new. The exhaust is on the wrong side. This isn't based on the current watercooled engine.

Thanks guys. The bike had done 900 miles when he got it, and is now on 1100. He's already taken their demo bike out, and it's much smoother. Could it be the throttle bodies?

I was at the bike show this week, and the ESA shock on EVERY GSW/ GSAW on the BMW stand rotated at least an inch. I guess that they're meant to do that then?

Fair enough. They look good in the flesh. I think the full wrap is too much black, and makes the bike look too similar to the previous GSA at a quick glance.
