Have you spun the wheel on your H2 to see if it is where the runout is? I recently swapped the hub and axle on my H2 SX SE to an H2 hub and axle so I can put my bike on a Pitbull TRS. Those axle needle bearings are huge. If there was a failure I whould think it would show other symptoms. The nice part is the swap saved me over 3 lbs and I now have the Brembo rear caliper.

The toughest part of getting into that H2 axle is torquing the nuts to 148 lb ft. I grabbed a set of torque sticks and used a 150 lb ft stick. I cannot imagine 2 lb ft would be an issue.
Thanks man. Yeah I'd love to hear about your Sears Point excursion. I'm going to give the rear wheel a good long look this weekend and make sure the play isn't coming from the hub.

That was a smart mod you did on the H2 SXSE. You can really tell where Kawasaki cut corners to keep the costs down. You going to do the M50 calipers as well?

That's what I like about you, Turbo. Instead of looking to external factors you consistently look to yourself to provide the improvements first.

"I can't corner the way I want to, I'll improve that."

"My bike feels heavy, I'll lose weight."

In a day and age where everyone's playing the blame game and looking for excuses it's refreshing to see a little discipline, determination, and self-efficacy.
