Geez... a few years and I have hardly ridden the bike since. I had the fortune to pickup an HP2 shortly after I did all this and as a result the 1150GS has sat idle a lot.

That said, I do like...

I used a hack saw to cut through the bolt on the right side of the shock. Once you've got the shock out it's pretty easy to get the remaining piece out.

I would replace it if I were you. I had the same thing happen on mine except mine fractured from the stress. Order a new bolt, they're cheap and come with the loctite already on them

UniFilter and pre-filter on my HP2, they work amazingly well. The prefilter keeps out 99% of the dirt and I rarely if ever have to clean the main filter.

I've got one of those as well. Looks exactly the same except that mine seems to be a tad long (or not enough thread depth in the axle) so it doesn't seat against the fork leg. I think I need a...

I don't have a picture, but it's underneath the instrument cluster. I believe it has a little black plastic cap on the end of it and it's zip tied to the metal bracket that the cluster attaches too.
