According to the motto: “You can always improve something good,” says BMW specialist W.The GS 1200 Adventure finally accepted. A TÜV-compliant conversion kit for the front wheel from 19 to 21 inches should not only benefit off-road suitability and steering precision, but also expand the tire selection.

In addition to the complete front wheel, the conversion kit includes brake lines, an off-road mudguard and a height-adjustable, lower triple clamp. The latter, according to Wunderlich’s promise, will noticeably improve wheel control, and thanks to its adjustability, it can also be used for 19-inch wheels.
Two inches are around five centimeters. And they are already noticeable when jacking up: Both wheels touch the ground when the 1200 is enthroned on the main stand. Bad when changing wheels. The advertised advantages

the test machine was very convincing
good smooth running properties, lively on the gas and seemed much more agile over the entire speed range than an engine fed by the standard software. Disadvantages: slightly higher consumption (depending on the setting) and expiry of the operating permit, because there is a TÜV certificate
it for not. Advantage: 30 days right of return in case of dissatisfaction. rh
