One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.

It's a long time since I had a Gem, but I don't remember any LE mods.

Main ones were:

Changing the cross over bridle ( on the original version) to the Cross active bridle (standard on later versions)

Pulling in the trickline for better turtle based tricks - pull in to 6cm - you need a longer trick line or fit elastic in the middle like the Outerspace.

2 X 8gram weights on the standoffs for pitch tricks.

some folks also retro fitted roll bars.

somewhere on the web there is a German article called 'Pimp my Gem' ( or something like that) with some good information.
