What does it take to reverse the rear brake arm? a new cam perhaps?
Yes, the cam is different.
And I think the shoes are a bit modified as well.
You can buy a conversion kit from HPN but I bought the final drive complete like this so I don't know exactly what's in the kit.
Yes it was not good. The shock mount in the picture was an experiment.
I had the Öhlins rebuilt later, so it is a bit longer and the extra bracket on the swingarm is gone now.
Going up, mostly.
I've seen dogs go for $4-5k. 25k miles is just getting broken in. PD stuff, aftermarket shocks, etc. can take it up into the $7-9k range. Don't forget SS pipes run over $1200, Jesse's panniers about the same, PD tank (w/out decals) is over $1k. The math ain't pretty.

Nice original example. Bike now has a R100GS front end, 4 pot Brembo, Taller 5th gear, top end rebuilt, Enduralast, repainted blue.

Nice G/S... was this a local purchase? There seems to be quite a few G/S's around Seattle... counting yours and mine I know of at least 8...and if you allow Portland into that count it's now 11
It was in flee market a few months ago out in Knoxville TN. Flew out and picked it up with 45K on it. Rode it to Toledo OH to see the folks then out to CAL to visit friends. Now home. I don't think it burned 1/4 quart of oil in 5,000 miles. Needs some TLC. Thanks for the compliment. New learning curve for me as I have tons of time working on oil heads, but these air heads; back to shaking sticks and chanting for me! At least until I get my mind around it. I am learning that if I don't screw with it, it works out it's own problems. I might actually have to name this one.
If you are thinking about throwing some suspension mods at it, and want to ride one with Racetech's and an Ohlins let me know...
You know I do!
My G/S in august on the way to Corsica
Note the "racing" fitment for luggages (Ducati fitment in wooden crates)
second pic, on the road again !
Oh! Dude! Nice first post!
Very, very tasty bike.
(Psst, fill out your profile, too.)
Nice PD Pete!
Like it just rolled-off the showroom!
Thanks for the comments about the bike :)
The bike had 13,500 miles on it when I bought it this past spring. It has about 16,500 on it now and I hope to put many many more on it.
I have a few airheads and this one has become my favorite.
oh umm.........how do I make a profile??? ( and please don't say ' turn sideways)
oser Tht's pretty funny, right there.
So, go up near the top of the page and you'll see a row of clicks: Control Panel, Members, Calander, Pics, Jo Momma, etc.
Click on Control Panel.
Then there's a menu on the left side.
Click on "Edit Profile"
Then you can fill in a bunch of shit that lets us all know what kind of bikes you have and various stuff.
You don't have to fill out everything, but it's handy to know a bit about the folks you're talking to sometimes.
Again, welcome to ADV.
