It might happen some of you, one is enough, still keeps in his junk a bit of an old beak.
My bike has recently been repainted after a light crash that destroyed her front.
Among many other thigs, the beak was replaced and repainted and the tank repaired and repainted. Just forgot to save the broken beak for a color reference besides the color code.
Guess we know that numbers and color sensations might not macht and that was the case.
As I use her frequently off road and new paintings migth be needed in the future, any little piece would be much appretiated.
Yesterday, I replaced the two small needle bearings that hold the final drive to the trailing arm. I removed the brass bushings that were installed by the previous owner. Brass bushing may be great for a racebike, but not a good one for an adventure bike. Brass bushings require a lot of maintenance between greasing and readjustments. After fitting the new bearings, I found I still had a very light play at the wheel, meaning it comes from the crown bearing. Arghhh...
Put my 23,500 mi. 06 1150 gsa se for sale on the flea market.
Put my 2006 1150 GSA for sale on eBay this week. Great bike, had fun riding it, but I'm getting older and decided it's just too heavy a bike for me anymore. I really was not riding it much anyway, seems like lately I've been riding other bikes more, it was just sitting in the garage. I'm sure I'll miss it, but it's time to move on to something lighter. I still have my 1200RT for long trips. The RT is not as tall and I can manage it better, I'm always afraid or dropping the GSA.
Getting ready to do my 73000 mile service, send the shocks to Dan Kyle for their first rebuild, and get the dent fixed on my tank. I love his bike.
The bike was submerged in the water for 30 minutes before I could lift it up by myslef. And now about to swap a 20,000 miles engine into mine, to replace a 106,000 miles motor that shows copper flakes in the oil. Engine was old, but playing submarine didn't help this weekend either. But I think the motor was tired anyway. I will rebuild the old one in winter.
did the whole bike go in the water?
How are all the electrics?
Bike was 2/3 submerged on its side. Electrics are fine. The RID worked. Then got blanked for a night. Then came back.
I have a standard and a custom low sit as well as 2 original side boxes for sale. I thought I should try it here befor I put it on ebay. The standard sit has about 20k miles on it, is broken in and is in pristine condition.The low sit is about 4.5 inches lower than the standard sit and is brand new. There are some scratches on one of the side boxes and one of the hinges is broken but i have the replacements. Please PM me if interested.
Low sit (about 4+ inches lower than standard sit)
some scratches on the top left
in good condition
Is the low seat from Sargent? I suggest you mention prices and a link in the classifieds.
No it is custom made.
Standard sit $200
Low sit $250
Both side boxes $200
I made the low sit myself and published the story in this thread.
Hmmm..I'm in! My bike is Grrrreattt!!!! A little heavy but draws me a smile after a good ride!!!
Uhmmmm...could we see it?
i have been looking for a long time and have not found one. if you are thinking of selling your bike please let me know.
to be clear ---- I AM ONLY INTERESTED IN A 2006 R1150 GSA. prefer with all the original luggage and low miles. also any farkles on it or not installed . price depends on the bike and farkles but i DO KNOW THAT THEY ARE NOT CHEAP..
Owner says it's an 04 with a salvage title. Wondering if this was a 2004 repainted, or if he's mistaken. Waiting to see the VIN / title this week.
Anyone have any thoughts on this bike?
