    FYI The original to that PDF is at http://www.snafu.org/pics/r1200gsw/Service.pdf

    If/when I make any changes I put the most up-to-date version at that link. And now that I think of it... I added a "Form last updated" in the lower left of the form.

    Thanks for creating that combined form and the notes and torque values.
    I'm sure MANY new LC/WC owners will find it extremely helpful as they do their own work! :clap
    Marchyman...congrats!

    BTW...I updated #104 to your latest form.

    Great resource page, I appreciate those that have put it together.

    I am looking for a list of motorcycle salvage yards that part out the GS/GSA. Google'ling only came up with these 4:

    1. beemerboneyard.com
    2. duncansbeemers.com
    3. re-psycle.com
    4. bobsbmw.com
    Such a list/link(s) would be a useful addition to this thread, IMO.

    Thanks in advance.

    Due to the 40,000 character limitation on a post...the original thread "100 THREADS all GS/GSA owners should read." has now reached it's maximum allowable size.

    In order to continue the ORIGINAL thread...I'll be adding a new thread called "100 THREADS - PART 2"...starting with topic number 136.
    Here's a link to Part 2:
    http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=967525

    Upside: "100 Threads" continues...got a topic you nominate to be added? Send me a PM.:clap
    Downside: You'll now have to search BOTH threads to find stuff.

    you made the tactical error of not reserving a few extra posts, after your OP. on your next new thread please consider inserting a few extra marker posts with "reserved" .. later go back to add more info .. delete later or what ever.
