If you have a motorola bluetooh ear piece, the wall charger and auto charger works with the hero hd! Wally world should have them cheap, if not. The ZUMO 550 power cord works also, (the 110 volt...

FWIW, just bite the bullitt and have it rebuilt, stem to stern. Think about the bronze pivot bushings in place of the oem bearings. If your bike is a low miles bike, there is a possibility of...

Do your maintence, Keep you eye on the boot.

Do the FD service every other oil change and watch the boot for seeping. If the seal is leaking, it's a good bet the bearing cage is coming apart, with the crown bearing to follow shortly. Be...

We're talkin' about a final drive failure, as in bearings, races, gears and other such dohicky gizmos here, not a seal, which costs a few bucks and is a wear item.:wink:

Nature of the beast, use a battery tender, have a good battery, drive it a few minutes, stop, turn off key, then restart. There is a fix, but probably not worth the effort and expense. Great bike...
