- Installed New steering Stem Bearings - had them in the cupboard for about 5 years. Finally worked up the courage to install them. What a Chore!
- Added 3 1/2" risers - Much more comfortable shoulder position.
- Replaced Brand X Brake pads with OEM Honda Brake Pads. Although the fonts didn't look that bad, the rears were really worn.
- Added LED light bars to the sides of the tour pack

All ready to go for the 2018 Riding Season

Replaced fork seals & dust sweeps in both forks with OEM Honda seals & sweeps.
New 10w fork oil and adjusted over-all length to be the same for both forks.(which the dealer failed to do) No longer need ratchet strap to install font axe. LOL!
