Hi there,

Just bought my first big bike. It took a little while to find out what it should be but soon it was clear.
Now I drove 400 kms and this iron pig fascinates me constantly
Cheers from Austria

Great choice! Welcome!

It's most important that you check if it has been rollerised.

It’s 2009, 24500 kms.
And yes, it’s rollerised.

Sweet. Get on to the swing arm bearings and linkage and you should be golden.

Guys, I bough my GRiSO with some mods: there is a Wilbers suspension, aftermarket clutch and brake levers, mirrors and this BOS exhaust.
The last owner gave me all the original parts properly wrapped.
What’s different with the factory exhaust? Is the current BOS only a matter of taste?

Basically yes. Different pipes will perform slightly differently and for optimum performance need different maps but really the different cans will generally not make huge differences.

As a rule, the longer the pipe the better and a dB killer will improve the bottom end and midrange.

Thanks. I was asking because I find the factory pipes so weird... that they look amazing. I wouldn't mind having put them back.

The factory pipe works well by weighs a tonne. There must be hundreds of them available as most people take them off. I’ve got several.

G'day Peter
Welcome from us all under down under in Tasmania.
Enjoy your lovely GRiSO.
Please stay safe and warm.
Thanks for your picture, it reminded me of a beautiful week we had at Maria Alm a few years back.

Welcome, Peter, that's a beautiful GRiSO! And I personally love the stock exhaust.

Hmmm. I think that’s what you call a dilemma. Or a real first world problem.
How long does it take to change? An hour?

Hello, neighbour.
Here are some pictures of today’s ride in the nearby Montafon area. First time with bags.

Hello neighbor :-)
nice views, btw bags are some new model from Hepco?
I have the same C-Bows but older bags.
And I hope that in half of june I will be in Austria with GRiSO, somewhere in Alpen between Zell am See and Insbruck. Not sure yet.

Yep, they are from Hepco, though Vanucci branded.
