This sounds like a great ride. I currently live in northern colorado, and have been through that area camping and driving, one time long ago on a motorcycle with my son on the back from grand Canyon to Durango, through four corners area.

Keep us informed on the route planning.

Add one more to your list!!!

A little update from me. After getting the rear shock out in August last year, I finally got round to sending the rear shock to Firefox Racing. I sent them all the components I had purchased including parts from Coconut.

A couple of days later they called me up with an update. Unfortunately the problem was worse than expected. The shocks rod/shaft had snapped internally, most likely due to bearings being seized after 40,000 miles of year round riding. There was probably a lot of torque being put on the shaft and it eventually fatigued and failed. This explains why the bike dramatically turned into a pogo stick exiting a roundabout causing me to almost low side it.

Anyway Firefox Racing said they would be able to mill a new one in a few days. A week later I had my refurbished shock back with new shaft, bearings, seals and sleeves. They even put a new connector plug where it had been damaged during removal.

Firefox racing posted the shock back and I had the bike back together in about 3 hours. It took a pit of wiggling around and figuring out where everything needed to go but it was fairly straight forward.

I've put a couple hundred miles on the bike now and all working as it should. All in all I highly recommend Firefox Racing!

Thank you for all the posts and information from members. I definitely wouldn't have attempted doing this without it. Next job is replacing the old heated grips...one of them has stopped working  :152:

Hi guys.
I've just read your posts. Both my sensors have finally died but it took almost the whole season. I wonder if they were original?
Anyways I'm going to replace them with CR2032 type lithium. Theres an electronic supply store close to me here. I have the rear tire off my 2015 and going to deflate the tire and attempt breaking the bead with a C-clamp. Any recommendations on this method? As far as I'm concerned all I need is enough room to remove the sensor.
I'll let you know how it goes.
Then I'll be performing a coolant flush and brake service. I'll try anything once.
Hope you all are having a good off season.

Just had a call from the dealer telling me the same thing about my bike.
Would rather repair than have to sell for parts. Bit of a long shot but does anyone know of a refurb place in the South East of England or have any helpful links to help me do the work myself.

Thank you.

EBC is one of the more frequently used ones.  I've used them before and they were fine.  I've only used the sintered HH series, so others may have insight into the differences in feel and capability of the other series' made with different materials.  I'm no longer worried about longevity with brake pads as they are very easy to change, even if it turns out to be required at the yearly maintenance procedure.  My interest would be in knowing if there are other materials besides sintered pads that have better feel, even though I don't find sintered ones objectionable.  Let's get some comments from other members. :028:

I'm needing to replace my rear brake pads but not bothered about going for the OEM ones, what other options are out there that people know about?
