Question about 2001 BMW R 1150 GS
I am seeking to upgrade the engine performqance of my '01 R1150 GS. Could one do this by swapping out the heads and pistons for R1200S components (with an overbore if needed)? If so, (a) what other major components (if any) would need to be swapped too (e.g., con rods, valves, etc), and (b) what machining would be required? Alternatively, is there another BMW model whose engine components could be swapped onto the 1150 GS to increase the horsepower to 110hp or more?
Those are hex heads not oil heads such as yours. I havent seen it done yet. maybe you can be the first.
