50,500

50,500 miles -

Replaced rear brake pads.

Installed a new Bridgestone Potenza G009 205/60HR16 car tire on back. The Falken still had several thousand miles left on it, but with my hard bags off, and license plate off, and the bike already on the stand, I figured what the heck. The Falken was only $66.00 anyway. Paid $105.00 out the door for the Bridgestone, from Big-O tires.

Colorado Power Sports in Boulder actually agreed to mount and balance the car tire, if I signed a waiver, which I did. I also had them check the wheel bearings, and they said they were fine.

51,850 miles - Replaced clutch and brake levers with Kuryakn adjustable levers, made for the Goldwing 1800. Needed to cut of longer tab with dremel tool.

Works great! Much easier pull.

53,000 Miles - Installed Baron's X Bars, and put stock risers back on. Throttle cables are a bit snug, might need to re-route them.
