Those do look pretty interesting, I always wondered how a sporty would handle in the dirt.

There is a guy on ADVrider who did that to his sporty and loves it!

There have been a few that have done it. They all seem to love them. I am not an adventure rider by any means but I would think the Sporty's low end torque would be ideal for this type of riding. The kit takes care of the Sporty's short comings for this type of riding except for the weight but the BMW GS is no light weight either.

There are some interesting parts in this kit!. The relocated foot peg bracket with integrated chain tensioner look pretty trick, I really like the skidplate and I'm all ears on those cartridge kits!

That is what I thought when I saw this that they also sell parts separately. I am sure there would be a market for the suspension parts for sure.

Just checked out the website, both kits sold out! Glad to hear people are into it, hopefully they will make some individual parts available for sale..

Looks very cool but its not a cheap kit, wonder how much you could do it using a mixture of parts
