We think the GS beak is way too long – dirt bike styling taken to an extreme and functionally unnecessary for GS's ridden mostly on the street. Our Shortnose is 4” shorter than stock, considerably improving the proportions of the bike, while retaining BMW's intended look. It mounts with stock hardware and is lighter than stock. Shortnose is made in epoxy resin and woven cloth and is coated with an off-white urethane primer ready for scuffing and painting. For extra cost color matching, please allow an additional 5~7 days for shipment.
