Drilled the blocks and secured it with grade 8 hardware.
Used it a few times (when I had a Harley), but it was really taking up space in the garage.
Sold the Harley and found I just wasn't using it...more riding...less trailering.

No need to take the bearings apart if they are fitted with the zerk grease fittings in the center of the axle of the Kendon before each trip. Just a few pumps on the gun is enough to add grease. I always remove excess grease before re-fitting the rubber end plug. Allows for heat expansion (leaks throught the seals) and bearings dont need to be packed solid.

Also, found that it is not wise to carry a full size spare under the trailer if you have two full size bikes (HondaGW and BMW K1200GT) on. You wil drag it at most gas stations!

I had the wheels re-balanced too. The original Kendon balancing was far out.


Apart from that, they are great trailers!

right, definitely not a good idea to have the spare mounted under the trailer. Can't get it easily if you need the spare with your bike(s) on the trailer.

I don't have any trouble with the spare dragging on my Kendon. But then again the two bikes that are on my trailer don't weigh anywhere near what a BloatWing and LightTruck weigh together.

Good luck.

I have the new model and I bump the spare even with light hah "KLR" bikes when getting to remote sites.



I installed the factory center rail as well but I did not experience even handling issues when towing my """"BloatWing"""" on a side rail.

My bad.

The trailer I showed in post #14 was a H&H SM2 trailer.
Apologies.
