My '07 R is 100% stock except that I had my axels packed at the advice of the dealer when I had both my spring seats replaced. I'm fine with the performance and appearance. I would however like to do something that could protect it mechanically and improve reliability. I see some people have replaced OE hoses with better quality and "heat wrapped" whatever that is. can anyone give me some pointers as to what I can do to lengthen it's lifespan? Thanks, guys.
