    What did they do different between ‘14 and ‘15 that makes it not fit a ‘15 GSA?

    Everything in the hub is different. Bearings, spacer, axle diameter. I don't know if the brake disc spacing is different or not.

    It is a Behr rim, 21 x 1.85, so it is tubeless.

    I guarantee it will fit a 2008 R1200 GS.

    I’ve been seriously considering this but wanted to research it a bit first. My initial concerns are the fender issues followed by the on road manners. Tubeless is an absolute requirement ( the reason I’ve subscribed to this particular thread)

    How are people currently addressing the fender issue?
    I have a TFX suspension on my 09 GSA so I’m pretty confident I can address the change in front end geometry. Any input regarding pavement riding?

    Also: 90-90/21 tire size I assume?

    (Continuing to scour the threads...)

    Yes, it is tubeless and takes a 90/90-21 tire

    It rides great on the pavement as well. I didn't notice any adverse effects of the slight change in steering geometry.

    As for the low front fender, I didn't worry about it, as I don't live in areas with sticky mud. A few people have moved bits of cheap dirtbike fenders around to replace most of the low fender.

    The other option is to just better seal the area between the forks and the beak to block stuff.

    I’ve really only been in one situation (Continental Divide Ride outside Cuba NM) where fender clearance was an issue.

    Consider me seriously interested...
