since you'd clocked 80k on the odo why not change your head bearings
I have changed the steering bearings at the ASC 20k kms back next changed planned at 100k, same with wheel bearings. This is pre-emptive maintenance as these are bound to fail after 50k kms and have seen quite a few riders stranded due to wheel bearing failure on a touring Harley. Only I'm worried about the swing arm bearings which needs specialized equipment for changing and the ASC claiming they have never ever changed these on any Harley

and you can buy it from their spares outlet.
Didn't know this, thanks for the info will check it out.

P.S. You can get individual sockets from wholesale
The problem with Harley is mostly it uses an imperial toolset. Also size 34 seems to be an odd size unavailable on retail in my small home town. But if I plan to do this again planning to get it and also a new set of upper and lower stem bolts as they seem to be good for only one more change.

So Sunday morning well spent! Washed and polished the bike. Also cleaned the air filter and the butterfly valve and the breather tubes. Fun and simple little wrenching. Alas lockdown blues, no riding.

Went on ride Saturday morning towards hospet on the still fresh off the oven NH13 stretch between Chitradurga and hospet. Did 120kms loop. Beautiful weather and beautiful roads, a Harley at 4500 rpms is ethereal, like meditation.!

Went on a breakfast ride towards sira on the NH4. Met my riding gang riding down from Bangalore. Was nice meeting up everyone after a long time. Again beautiful weather. Harley=Highway!
