FIRST THINGS FIRST
As with any bike, there are things you always want to change right from the get-go. Having covered over 20,000 miles on the new GS in recent years, I know that the engine front plate takes a pasting, and that the rear tyre throws muck up over the bike like a naughty monkey at the zoo when the going gets wet. With that in mind, I’ve already made a few choice mods that I hope will help. All three items here are by Machineart (nippynormans.com). The fit was millimetre-perfect on all parts, while the finish is also superb.
