I want to import used motorcycle fuel tank, need help in understanding
1> Is it legal to import used spare part in India?
1.1> If yes, is this as simple as buying it from eBay and choosing the courier company which will delivery it at doorstep after clearing the custom?
1.2> Any documentation required for importing anything that is not machine but used spare like fuel tank, plastic parts ?

I have asked this in here http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/vintag...ml#post4169232 (Importing used engines/Spare Parts?) but though of asking here, as this is specific to GS that I have, the new one in India is almost 200K and the used one I am looking at will reach me if possible at less than 80K !

I have them, will change once the current one are gone or before any long trip.

They are way above 35K but for me these are the only one available in OEM size.

Good to know the boxer engine layout have more advantage than just low center of gravity
Here is a detailed study done to prove

Wow. Great Job Promods
So only the GSA crash guard to be added to finish the looks!

Other than the mechanical parts did you have to re-route any hoses/fuel lines or electricals. How about the fuel gauge due to the larger tank.

No rerouting required, the installation is very simple, no complications. 4 new parts are to be added on GS to take the new fairing with 2 replacement
1>tank protection plate
2>attachment for air stream.
3>attachment ring at fuel filler
4>pressure plate for fuel pump ( you need plate and bolts with washer)
2 Replacement
1>the tank adjustment from the GS to GSA( new part).
2>Radiator growls

This is first full tank, the system is indicating the previous learning (range with full tank is showing the same distance as with GS). I may need to reset the computer( disconnect the battery terminal for 12 hours), this will force the system to re-calibrate. I am hoping that fuel gauge and computer calibration is not hardwired, else I have to do manual calculation for full tank!

Looking for the engine and tank bars now, plus I have every thing to get it back to GS and then to GSA in 3 hours this is a complete DIY work and possible first anywhere ( for water cooled one). One guy did it other way GSA to GS, I was already in process and had parts on order, but that conversion gave me the boost I need that its possible. Older GS conversion needed lots of effort but this one can be done in 2 hour with every part available.

Did the complete coding and now it showing the correct fuel capacity and all the bike computer are now in sync
Enabled the hill hold control feature too and updated the bike i-level to my installed software package.

I have the ICOM/D-CAN (16 to ODB) cable and all related software with 6 month of research to modify the fuel sensor level and capacity!

Fuel tank feature can't be done by dealer as there is no way there software will do this, this need a developer level (ESys) software with lots and lots of details, not recommended to play around too risky but if anyone need this let me know I know exactly what, how and where.

Oh wow - two of my favourite bikes covered in one single thread. The adventure bikes are a bit bigger but I was amazed to see how easy to ride both the XRX and the GS are even within the city (I rode the GS in Andheri no less).

The GS is an absolute hoot to ride. Enjoy the beast. I can't think of a nicer ride in the current crop of offerings in India. Inshallah if budget permits maybe I can flip my Street Triple for this some day

Very surprised with rear brake pad life, more than 20 was still left after 19.5K kms! I was thinking to put it back as use it for next 2-3k kms but changed it.

The third marker on the left pad is as good as other, is the camera flash that's at play!
