    Okay add a few dollars to the total. Ball park total.

    Check out this thread. Dyno testing a '12 R1200GS with full Akro system with Power Commander
    OP said he saw no difference in performance with air filters but Bobby says his experience shows UNI filters do improve numbers.

    Mine was only dynoed after the installation of exhaust, air filter and the PC-V. I can't comment on the K&N filter adding horsepower or not. I like the idea of cleaning and reusing it as opposed to paying BMW for a new one every 6K miles. Thats all.

    Forgot the Fastway adventure pegs (large) and the Hammerhead design shift lever.

    The pegs are great, I have size 13 boot and they make a huge difference, especially when standing up. The shift lever is a half inch longer for my big feet and helps as well. If you do the Fastway pegs use lock tight, I got in a hurry and didn't and have already lost two cleats.

    That looks like the gas pumps in Cold Foot. That's a great ride up the Dalton.

    Out of curiosity, when/where are you ever going to need a steering stabilizer?

    I mean, unless you plan on doing trackdays or 80 mph through sand all the time.....

    I find that 15 to 20 mph in ruts and mud it prevents a lot of unintentional quick turns.

    I had one on my KTM XC 300 and it made a huge difference at lower speeds.

    In sand they like to make unintentional quick turns all the time, which results in a quick fall(Dirt Nap).:lol3
