Modifications

  • front springs from Wilbers
  • SAE10 oil instead of SAE5 in front fork
  • adjustable pegs from Thurn -removed and replaced again with original pegs
  • Bridgestone BT45[2]
  • Hepco & Becker case mount
  • Exchanged 50HP intake manifold with 60HP intake manifold[3]
  • K&N air filter[4]

What sums this bike up for me?

  • fun and no repairs. ever.

(preliminary:

  • Reliable
  • Nearly unbeatable uphill[5], but very weak downhill due to the brakes[6]
  • Good handling in narrow bends, better than the GS
  • Could use some extra hp
  • Eierlegendewollmilchsaufuerwenigkohle

)


  • Footnotes:
  1. Revere looks like an french word, but is actually english (german readers know what I mean). See here. More about the Revere.
  2. Strangely, the BT45F is due after just 3000km - the BT45R might make another 2000 or 3000km)BT45F (front)BT45R (rear)
  3. ...which was quite unnecessary, since the previous owner...look for yourself:

  4. Take a look at this: NTVLuftFilterWTF.jpg
    That's the one I removed with 76Mm
  5. Bei meinem Alpentrip 2010 hat der Kilogixxer am Mendelpass keinen Fuss auf den Boden bekommen...*hehe*
  6. Not, that they are bad, but they are just not as good as they could be (or those of the GS were)
