It all depends upon the photo.
Both + GoPro mounted on tank from time to time
I think it would be nice, for a even better idea, to see also a video with the dark screen, with the camera mounted on helmet, tank or chest :)
Why are the GS's passenger peg brackets welded on whereas the GSA's are bolted on?
I hope the GS will be updated to the bolt-on scheme.
Passenger pegs are bolted on the GS, too.
My passenger pegs are bolted on ...
It just looks like they are welded. The appearance threw me off in installing my Jesse bags, but they are definitely bolted on.
This picture shows welded-on, but it may be of an early production GS.
They look like they are in pics, but really truly cross-my-heart-and-hope-to-die, they are not.
If you look carefully at this pic, you can see the Jesse bag mount attaching between the footpeg and the subframe.
No, it still looks like that. But it's a small, stubby carrier that the foot peg hanger gets bolted to that's welded on.
I see now. The GS's brackets are indeed bolted on and not really shown otherwise in the photos. This would seem to offer further options for luggage racks and mounts.
So... I am having some kind of electrical problem that seems to be somehow associated with having installed extra circuits to power accessories. I made a new thread here: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=930088
Would appreciate any of you with electrical skills taking a look. I'll be back out in my garage later today looking at it again, but for now I have no answers.
I asked my salesmen if it had ride height sensors so the bike is level depending on how much load, and he said no.
here is why I asked:
Manual, page 65.
Dynamic EAS Electronic Suspension Adjustment
- with dynamic ESA
Using the electronic suspension adjustment, dynamic ESA you can conveniently adjust your motorcycle to the load.
Using leveling sensors, dynamic ESA detects movements of the running gear and responds to them by adjusting the damper valves.
(this says Damper Valves, not Spring rate)
Now on page 67, under section about Adjusting Chassis (that starts on page 66).
At very low temperatures, unload the motorcycles before increasing the spring preload, and have the passenger dismount if necessary.
This makes me think there is no ride height sensors, and it sounds more like a "pre set" spring load change.
as i said,
This would explain why the other day (coldest day I've ridden the bike yet) the ESA just blinked when I set it to Medium height (Helmet and Luggage) I was sitting on the bike.
Later in the day the ESA worked fine when it warmed up.
Is that the BMW headlight protector that you have intalled? If so, any helpful hints as I didn't get any instructions from the dealer, and wondering if there is something easier to install. I just received a packet of hardware and the lens itself. Thanks.
This probably has been posted already somewhere here...
Only styling nit pic I have with the WC is the radiator blades.
Thought they would look better in black or body panel color, something other than shiny silver.
Found this today
I like it... $200.00 per side.
Suppose a can of black paint would do.
The carbon fiber blades can be seen on the bike in the picture 2 posts up ^
I think that is carbon fibre vinyl wrap, but I could be wrong.
Yes it is the BMW headlight protector. BMW does not provide any instructions for any of their accessories. You need to get them from a dealer.
The short arms Install above the headlight and the long ones go below the headlight. Here are some pictures.
These are the Hornig Carbon blades. They are not a wrap. The price was high but I just had to have something different. I may add a few more items over time but nothing as big as the blades.
