Unlower a low suspension model?
I'm just about to purchase a DOHC R1200GS TU (2011) a lowered suspension model. I would have chosen a normal model, but the bike came along at a price where it is viable to change it back...
My basic research indicates that I will need to change the Front/Rear suspension units, plus the higher centre stand and side stand. Does anyone know if that is the extent of the mods?
Obviously, before I swap everything and spend a fair chunk of money, I'll ride the bike to see how I get on.
So any comments on the experiences of owning a LS model would be helpful. BTW I am 100kg and 186cm (16 Stone and 6ft 1in in UK old money).
Eitherway, I am so pleased to be getting another GS. Previously owned a R100GS, R1100GS and R1150GS. I have returned to two wheels on a Tiger 955i after 10 years off, which is excellent and I've really enjoyed. But this GS was too good an offer to turn down - being to my mind perfection on two wheels.
