Hello all, Newbie here. I signed up on this forum about ten mo ago when I first got my R Nine T and haven't been too active but got a few things done to my bike. It was stock when I purchased. Now have had a custom stainless exhaust fabricated, have installed drop fork handlebars and have...
I had the exhaust custom made. I sacrificed my OEM exhaust in order to utilize the hanger that supports the pipes to the belly of the bike and we cut the collars and first inch or so of the manifold which we didn’t want to fabricate. I found the mufflers on eBay believe it or not!! Had no idea what it would sound like but figured I could change that part easy enough if I didn’t like it. Guy I hired did an incredible job and did it for way less than he should have considering the work involved. I’m into materials and labor for less than $1000.
Well, I took the plunge. Found a 2018 Urban GS with 1,600km / 1,000 miles on it. Every factory option, a Rizoma rear rack and a BMW/Akropovic exhaust. It was mounted high but the bike also came with the low mount and the all the bits to make it work.
Here it is at 1:00 today when I first got it home.
And here it is a few hours later with the rear rack removed, and the OEM pipe back on. I've got plans for side bags and the high mount / Rizoma combo was in the way.
Show off your Urban G/S, modified or stock, I for one would like to see a thread with just this model in the one place.
I'll start, Akro slip on, CRG bar end mirror, Boxer oil filler cap, mirror clamps too. more Farkles on order.
I haven't fully decided what I want to do with my scrambler yet. Sort of wanted to turn it into a light tourer but getting panniers seem to be difficult on the scrambler. And then, I see the awesome custom builds some people do. So let's see what ya'll are up to!
This is what I have so far. Got...
