    Andy, I've attached a pic of my Wunderlich bar risers and the Voight brake extension. I had read that parts from the EU would now need to clear customs after Brexit. Did you pay the vat at source or...

    Andy, absolutely do not fit the risers without modifying the brake line. Yes, the risers will go on but the line will be very very tight. Over time, and with some vibration, the hose integrity would...

    Interesting how the number of keys supplied seems to change over time and in different parts of the world. When I bought my 2013 GT it came with two normal keys plus the little plastic emergency key....

    Indeed Ajaay, as I also noted, that TUV approval is usually a guarantee that all is ok. However, although I re-routed the hose and fitted the L plate correctly, the hose was too close to the bottom...

    Andy, I fitted the Wunderlich risers and they doa very good job. I also fitted their L bracket which wasn't too difficult, onceyou figure out how to loop the brake caliper over the other brake...

    That idea sounds great Tigcraft. I would never have thought of that. Do you have any pictures?

    Phil, I wonder what Bruce did in the end. This thread seems to be very old. FWIW my first GT was 6.5 years old when I part ex'd it for another GT. The first bike had no electronics issues whatsoever....

    Thanks for the photos Cramer. My plate was mounted similar to yours, with about the same amount of the BMW rack protruding beyond the plate at the rear. The photo of the underside of the Shad plate...

    Cramer, yes I agree, the SH45 is just the right size. The GT rack is exactly the same as the ST and the Shad plate is definitely secure. What I was commenting on was that the reinforcing metal strip...

    Thanks Dave. That looks impressive. On something a little more basic, I noticed you cable tied the boot which covers the clutch cable adjuster. That boot perished on my first GT within a year and the...

    I bought a Shad SH45 for mine. Great box, nice size for the GT and looks almost OE. The retaining straps inside the box for example are exactly the same as in the OE panniers. All made by Shad of...

    If only the lock barrel is to be removed it shouldn't take too long. In my case, the reason the lock barrel was coming out was because the rear tail housing needed replacing. I think the plastic edge...

    Thanks Dave. Your setup looks excellent. I'm just waiting for release of our lockdown so I can do some distance on the bike with my new setup. Out of interest, what's that lever you have on the left...

    Dave, glad it worked out for you. Do you have pictures? I used the 20 mm Wunderlich spacer type on mine. Not knowing whether it would be enough. It is!! I'm not bolt upright but that's ok. The rise...

    Dave, you forgot to include the UK. Distances in miles, speed limit signs in mph and we even drive on the left. Just like you.
    The other mad thing is that some UK imperial measures are different to...

    Indeed. Good point rcb78. If a hot temperature were specified it would be a very difficult operation. By the time you finished the measurement and made the adjustment, the temp may have dropped a few...

    I'm totally in Flyrider's camp. Having tried all kinds of taller/wider screens on bikes over the years, and on my current GT, I've virtually always come to the conclusion that diffusing the airflow...

    Chris, now you mention it, yes, compared to my previous GT and ST, those rattles don't seem to be there any more. For me, the fly by wire GT is pretty similar to the cable version but it just seems a...

    The pesky can bus system is quite sensitive to aftermarket electrical equipment. You might have a problem with warning lights. Unless, the Oxford grips have a power consumption that is within OE spec.

    My experience of going from a 2013 to a 2018 is that the fly by wire is a little less snatchy at low rpms. I recall someone else on the forum had a similar experience. It also feels as though the...

    Yes Phil, that link pretty much shows the main changes. Having had a 2013 and now a 2018 I found some other small detail changes as well. Bottom fork yoke is black instead of silver, locating pins...

    Bill, when I had my ST I found the sports panniers were pretty waterproof, even without the liners. The only time I put them in was when I went on a long tour, and then mostly for ease of removing...

    Rod, not sure what you mean by smoke from the exhaust headers. Had some oil leaked onto the headers? Or was it coming from the point where the headers connect to the head? Smoke could be oil/water on...

    I'm surprised SW Motech advised using loctite. Most of the captive "nuts" used for the fairings are already self locking (the thread barrel is slightly crimped). So I'm not surprised that it was...
