    Only thing stopping me from changing my 800GT to 900XR is the final drive. (and the lack of funds ahahah)

    I always get confused with the mpgs when not stated US or Imperial, coming from a country that uses km/l.

    I'm getting 23-25 km/l on most days, 21-23 on bad days. Looking at most of your figures,...

    I share the same sentiments as you when I first gotten this bike. To be honest, other than going offroad this bike beats most other bikes when considering the whole package. You can ride the GT whole...

    Fair points from many of you. I guess at the end of the day, neither 590 ml nor 94 mm are magic numbers, but are reference points to start with. Different rider weight and riding style would require...

    Very good points. I'm at 33k km on a 4.5 year old stock belt. Probably still good to go a few more months or even years, But I guess I may want to pick up a spare, if there's a good deal going on....

    Very true about the chain part, I agree.

    Your last statement, do you mean BMW shafts are no good?
