    Thanks, but I don't think so. YMMV of course.

    Inmate Twin Headlight Ernie of Dakota Motorsports made me a Fat Foot and a bash plate for the center stand. Main bash plate will be fabbed up later. He used my bike for a template for the foot and center stand bash plate and he'd be happy to make them for you too. :deal

    BTW, the center stand was already rusting after only 3500 miles :huh

    So, this weekend I took the LC up to the Ardennes for some twisted riding. Going out of of a small village I rode through a pothole I didn't see, at 40mph.
    Result : a dented cast front wheel :cry. Just big enough so it loses about 100gram of air over 24hours.
    Have the wheel at the repair shop right now to straighten it out again. Hopefully this works :1drink

    We worked out a deal on my parts as they were prototypes. I don't know if he's set pricing for the 2013 parts yet, but he usually much less expensive than the big competition. Send him a PM. :deal

    Well I looked - but I guess I don't know where to look to find the size - any idea?

    Just got the wheel back. It was bent on both sides ( top and bottom so to speak)
    Cost me 45 minute story on how the LC rides :D, and 50€ which is a fair deal :deal

    ~$75 sounds cheap/fair.

    Were you aired down?

    I've hit a few potholes in my recent travels and haven't had an issue.
    But then I haven't been into anything that requires me to air down...yet.

    I bent a V-Strom rim in Baja several years ago and I'm happy to say that it held air with every tire until I sold it.

    It lost About 100gram (3 psi?) a day. I sprinkled some liquid soap on the bend part and could see tiny bubbles of air escaping.
    Nothing too serious to worry about, but planning on keeping the bike for a couple of years, so I let them fix it :D

    Hi GS riders/owners.

    I am new to the GS community as this is my first GS.
    I hope that I will have a lot of fun and trips with my new bike.

    There are a lot of Touratech and SW-Motech components used on the bike.
