    F750GS Touratech Progressive Suspension Upgrade

    I'm considering upgrading the suspension on my F750GS with a Touratech/HyperPro kit and am looking for some input.

    I recently had to replace the fork seals on my wife's G310GS and am familiar with the process on that model since it has upside-down forks. However, the F750GS has standard telescopic forks and after removing the top caps on the forks, I don't see how to get to the springs from that side. Looking at the fiche on realoem.com, there is a fillister-head screw on the bottom of the fork, which I assume is part of the solution.

    So, the question is: Has anyone taken those forks apart and can lend some advice?

    Here's the link to the fiche: https://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/sho...diagId=31_1403

    I decided to transition up to an R1250GS and sell the F750GS, which I'm prepping for sale right now. I subsequently returned the spring set, so never had a chance to see how the upgrade performs.

    I think it's a wise choice to let your dealer do it. After looking up the process on the DVD repair manual, it was clear what is involved. Still, quite a bit of work and may even require a specialty tool. So, good choice to have someone do it for you.

    Let us know what you think when it's done. :-)

    Did you trade in an R1250GS for the F750GS?

    I thought about keeping the 750 just in case my experience with the 1250 is less than what I expected. However, I'm loving the bigger GS so far. I'm sure as I get older I'll move back to a lighter GS, but for now, I want to do the 750 justice and pass it to another good home.
