lowering an R1200GS

Recommended Posts

Missouri Bob

I have a 2008 GS that was lowered at the factory. As I age, I want to lower the bike even more for a more manageable center-of-gravity.

 

Has anyone else tried this, and by how much?

 

Thanks.

Contact these guys. Should be able to tell you all you want to know. Ted is known as a BMW suspension Guru by some.

I spoke to Ted the other day, and he gave me some good advice. However, I would still like some empirical data.

You might just listen to Ted. I don't recall anyone ever mentioning lowering a lowered 12GS.

I think there's a limit as to how low you can go...

Might be time for a different bike.

 

I have dealt with Herman. / below

Purchased 50mm lower ESA for my 2011 GSA.

Very helpful gent>

Also spoke with Td Ported recently.

If anyone would know.. it's probably these 2 guys.

 

Read the first paragraph on this link..

Contact them and inquire.

Ted and Hermann are the two best.

I've worked w/Hermann (obviously not for lowering)

:rofl:

Good luck.
