Thanks.

Wrapped them myself.

Vinyl wrap bought from eBay. Loads of colours.
It's the stuff they wrap cars in.
You need a surgical blade to trim and a hair dryer
to make it easier to fit.
Gets easier with practice too.

Hi Phil

I'm afraid I'm not going to be much help here as its a standard part on the GSA.

I'm guessing most bikes you could just adjust the position of the pedal to suit.
I never use mine in the other setting.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help mate.

I like the cylinder head crash bars - very useful & much more effective than the OE rocker cover protectors that peel off in the slightest spill.
Also think that the pannier wrap is useful - if only to save on cleaning the ally.

Reckon the rest is bling though - but each to his own B)

Why take the OE hand guards off to replace them with smaller ones ?

You doing some serious off roading or going somewhere hot ?

Hi Sidestand

Glad you like some of the bits and pieces I've added. :)

Think you're right about the hand guards and going somewhere hot. They would have been great in Morocco allowing the breeze to go up my sleeves and fill my coat B)
And I like the idea that they now will actually protect my hands if such an occasion should present itself :woohoo:

Do enjoy doing a bit of off roading, nothing too serious.

Its also about making a very popular bike just a little less like all the others out there.
And I just love farkling about with it :laugh:

Barkbusters are much stronger the OEMs, I use these for maximum head protection http://machineartmoto.com/shopsite_sc/xhead.html light and strong.
Finally back on a GS :D

Very nice, but it doesn't mention if they fit a 2010 GS or GSA !
