GTL Farkels Done

Last of the mods done. Installed horn from Nippy Normans easy install and alot louder than the oem. installed radar detecter.Wired it into to right side running lights. New Corbin seat. made for my 33 inch inseam. About an 1 1/2 taller than the stock high seat. I always like a firmer seat for long distance and can see over the and better.Only draw back different key to keep up with to remove it.two other things. Installed the 6-emblem on the rear fender to cover the euro plate holes. also Illium higway pegs on the BMW crash bars.

Now what else?

Really interested in the Corbin seat pictures. I have a 30 inch inseam with the low seat (GTL). Any idea if the Corbin will be "taller"?
Have used Corbin on my GW and after 5 years, started to really show it's wear.The heated element never worked after the first year. Primarily it's the backrest I need and don't want to give up my original seat for mods.
Any feedback would really be appreciated.

If it isn't documented... it didn't happen.

Re: GTL Farkels Done

There is a problem with the site and it is not you.

The way to post is after you set up your message go down to Manage Attachments and click on it. Then just follow to your picture.

I checked yours out and that looks great. I am thinking of selling my detector and getting the cheetah laser jammer. I talked to they guys at my local bimmer shop and told them about your install set up and they said that would work great for a laser jammer to sit there too.

My jammer sits below the radar detector and the rear is under the trunk rack.
