    Usually, or in my case, the center race rotated on the axle. Wearing into the axle. If there is any wear into the axle, the whole assembly must be replaced.

    The 1200 is probably no less noisy to me than the 800. I suppose the noise does not come from the bike. It comes from the air and the other vehicles, etc.
    You can still participate on the forum. ...

    Uncle is sociable and friendly, and is giving him a chance. He also wants niece to be happy because she wants to bring him. Seems all good to me.

    I would try to follow the RepROM exactly as much as possible, unless I saw some slight deviation on youtube with someone actually doing the job on the video.

    You need the axle and bearing, and you want the new one. Not the old one that fails. I would never buy that used. Or from anyone other than the dealer. How long will it last.

    The washer on the drain plug? Yes. They like to replace those every time, but it isn't critical. I never saw a reused one leak. Just be sure it doesn't leak.

    There are quite a few threads about maintenance and repair, and general conditions on your bike to watch for, and how to fix. But the bottom line is, they are nice bikes. Enjoy.

    The 1200s use the same coils. I use the metal tool, after a nightmare getting them out on my 800.

    Sounds like either a bad battery, or bad charging system. There have been a few posts about the charging system and rebuild or repairs. A test should tell the story.

    That is definitely the gear to get together for camping. However, I suspect that it may have taken you some time to develop and perfect that stuff. You didn't start out on your first camp...
