    Prepping the HP2 for new neck bearings, fork seals and bushings. Also took off the holan pannier frames and wunderlich luggage rack, added new 90/10 tires as all my riding at the moment is on dirt. IMG_1844.JPG

    I put pirelli mt21 on the rear, dunlop geomax at81 on the front. The rear shock is stadium suspension.

    The rear mt21 works awesome, unfortunately I left the TKC 80 front on when I took it out, not a big fan of the TKCs in the dirt, though they work better than I would've thought on pavement. So I switched out the front but thats when I noticed a blown fork seal.

    Long shot; maybe a very long shot, but if I don't ask...

    Is there someone here from Germany who would be prepared to buy a GPS cradle for me which is advertised on eBay Germany and then post it to me in Australia? (I've been looking for this cradle for over a year in Australia and also eBay worldwide without success)

    I can transfer funds to you via Paypal for the purchase (€69) + post and a little extra for your assistance.

    Oh... its' sort of on topic... the cradle will be fitted to my HP2 :-).

    Please PM if you can help. Thanks.

    Added a Scott's steering stabilizer today; the supplied instructions say it's a tight fit and I would agree. I had to fiddle with the tank to get it as far back as possible to make room. Also installed Wunderlich 40mm (two 20mm blocks on each side) bar risers. I had to file a bit off the corner of each bottom block to clear the stabilizer mount, but it seems solid. Re-routed the brake cable, I think the best option was to go under the tank and in front of the frame steering tube, the stock cable was long enough. IMG_1495.JPG IMG_1496.JPG IMG_1497.JPG

    Maybe the modification is not for the better!
    Thanks!

    Did that lower bearing feel as bad as it looks?

    It would lock into place when it rotated into the notches. Only noticed it when I had the front wheel in the air.

    IMG_1432.JPG Same symptoms on mine, but the bearing didn't look that bad. Replaced mine last weekend before the steering stabilizer install. I used a few more appliances to accomplish the bearing replacement! The ladder and strap were just used to hold up the front fender/handlebar/headlight assembly...
