    Low chassis shock travel

    I am looking into a 1200GS and need the low frame low seat. Does anyone know how much the Low model shortens the shock travel?? Same for a 700 or 800 GS?
    Thanks,
    Bill

    Bill,

    I can't speak directly to a GS - but on the lowered R bikes, the amount the bike is lower is how much the suspension travel is lessened. And BMW pads the travel specs a bit by ignoring the rubber bumper on the shocks (on an R1200R - actual front travel measured is 100mm, they claim 120mm.) I would expect the GS to be the same.
