What is that bead running down the middle of the K-60? Something new to keep the middle tread from wearing out? I have had them before and they did not have that bead.

No Jim, just the muffler. Beats me why it is different. I have heard that the camhead muffler had less baffles. The 09 muffler I put on is quieter at idle and cruising speed. Not a lot but noticable.

The flapper came out with the camhead in 2010.

I have just installed a stock 09 muffler that I bought from Art max. It is much quieter at idle. Should get to test it out on the road tomorrow.

I have a 2006 GS1200 also. It is substantially quieter with twice the miles than my 2012 GSA, and I do not believe it is just because of the flapper. We will see.

It's the 05 GS. They changed the center stand in 06 making it much easier to lift. Not sure if you can retrofit an 06 center stand to yours though.

MRA x screen

Kev,
Your website says the support bar has to be removed for the GSA (oilhead). How is the screen supported? How much taller than a stock screen on GSA 2012?
