5 weeks in Hawaii! I think I could tear myself away from a motorcycle for a bit of that.

Close - it's actually Wunderlich bash plate. Well spotted on the wheels (Behr saxess 18/21 combo with oversized spokes) and the carbon covers (paid for by the previous owner )

Other mods include - rebuilt forks to put rebound and compression cartridges in both legs (Legs have been chrome coated); odyssey battery; holan racks (for GSA panniers) and screen; woody's stand mount; snorkel; heated grips for those winter rides...

I think that about covers it... I really gotta stop buying stuff!

Takes the air intake across the bike, up and over the oil cooler facing backwards. Runs fine with it fitted all the time. The only way water is getting in is if I go deeper than the tank or drop it in deep water (which has happened!)

It's a hose from a vacuum cleaner. I'll try to remember to take a couple pics in the morning

Mav, tell me about the cartridges in the forks. Did you get the cartridges from Marzocchi and install yourself? Or was it done behind the Wizard's curtain at the suspension shop? I've been doing my own suspension work here in Korea - always looking for new info.

Thanks!

* Also... there was a blurb in the July or August '09 issue of Motorcyclist magazine ...Ohlins is supposedly creating cartridge inserts for the F800GS...which I'm pretty sure uses the same fork legs as the HP2...
