I have a new-to-me 92 GS100. Actually I've had it over a year but it's still my newest bike. As someone who's owned and ridden plenty of oilheads I'll say this bike really explains why BMW has the reputation is does. It's a blast for most everything. I put a wilbers rear shock on the bike at the beginning of November and found it to be a pretty nice improvement over stock. Over thanksgiving I had a chance to take the bike off road for a bit and found that the front could use some help now. I've looked for threads on improving the front end and found some but nothing definitive. If you know of one feel free to post a link and call me an idiot. You can't hurt my feelings. I've seen suggestions from progressive springs to race-tech springs and an emulator to swaping for another front end off a yamaha. I'm a pretty average off-road rider and don't plan on anything too crazy. Although I have much respect for Stagehand I don't plan to copy his antics. At this point I'm leaning towards just adding a SJ fork brace and progressive springs and experimenting with fork oil to find something I like. Would I be wasting my time with that? Are there other mods that get you more bang for the buck? The other thing I found was that my handle bars are too low when I stand. Do most folks make due with risers or is an after market bar bend a better option? Thanks in advance for the suggestions.
