    I've dealt with a couple of signalminders on bikes other than the F650. As I recall the original flasher relay is removed so the signalminder wiring harness can access the bike's wiring.

    I've got a 2001 Dakar. These models came with a slightly thicker seat than the "regular" GS so if you are feeling a bit bent you might look at that as one option. TouraTech makes a set of adjustable...

    Are you sure there is a leaking seal? Depending on how liberal the PO was with chain lube, quite a bit may be up under the cover. Also, the canister holding the oil filter is just above this area too...

    I'd say leave the badges alone until (or if) you decide to sell it, and even then I only suggest changing it so we don't get inundated with questions about the guy selling an R80 badged as an R100...

    IMO 100 miles isn't really enough to get adjusted to the fit of your new bike, get some more seat time, fiddle with the handlebars etc before dropping a bunch of money on custom footpegs.

    Rich,
    Growing up in Isla Vista, I learned to ride in the early 80's by heading up San Marcos Pass and strafing the old Camino Cielo Road on my Vespa. Those were great days.
