If you search, somebody did an...

I'm far more kind to the GS than Humpo but you really need to consider how you'll ride it. I've got a GSA and you can say it's underpowered with merely 100hp +/-. But, it's really a smooth, even...

There is a lower seat option available from Duc. But, a more costly/time consuming but better route is to take the stock saddle (reg or short) and send it to one of the saddle guys... Meyer, Sargent...

Any of you guys have any info on the date that the model year will flip to 2011?

Also, I've been told that the wire for the heated grips will be inside the handlebars in 11...true or false. ...

Yep, it can removed without problem or damage but can't be reused(at least after it's been applied to the bike for a while).

Hmm...that's acting like air is getting in there. Did you try to bleed it before you changed the fluid? Wonder if there was a presence of air then? It's not uncommon for Duc slaves to leak but...

I guess it depends on how much "jump" you're talking about. Feeling/hearing the click and a little jerk in the bike is normal. If it's more than that you may have to adjust your clutch a bit since...

Not necessarily...but, I do love the hp on it and that's what's so lacking on the GSA. I could potentially see it replacing my bee but now with the balljoints fixed I like it again.

5500 miles! Nearly twice as much as I usually get. Rear is toast and the front won't go as long as a new rear. So...to me, I'd replace both and not worry about it.:smoking:
