    I have a 2010 R1200GSA (30 yrs ed.) How can I tell which shocks came with my bike? I understand BMW changed from Showa to WP in 2010. Is there a VIN check or maybe through the GS911? I can't find anything stamped on the actual bits that I can see and my dealer is clueless (surprise! LOL) :evil

    Answered my own question by finding and watching this YouTube video from Ted Porter's:
