    It's not an aftermarket item. BMW redesigned the tensioner. Call your dealer and ask for the updated left-side tensioner. When he expresses ignorance check back in here, by which time I will have...

    Re: Another 1200 GS final drive

    Please bitch. Loudly. That's the only way you'll get the tossers at BMW to pay any attention. Just be prepared when they still refuse to do the right thing.

    You say you tried both bikes: Does that mean you've ridden them? Because they are completely different animals. You say you want to do 500-mile days. Either will do that comfortably. You say you...
