    Thanks for posting.
    Are there any service centers in Europe, or more precise, in The Netherlands???????

    Wish I could just get them to send me the parts to do it myself.

    Found on another post that it is $50 plus 1.5 hours labor. Not bad if your nearest approved shop has reasonable labor charges...and isn't 4 hours away:mad:

    I've been eager to get this, but they have had previous upgrades for free, wish this was one of them. I'll at least price it out. Wish they would offer a front switch mod...

    Nearest shop (2 hours away) quoted me at $60 in parts and 1-2 hours in labor at $80/hr.
    Hard pass.
    I'd rather just sell mine and buy the new one on sale.

    I think I may do the same if I can't find a place that will just sell me the kit.

    That's what i was quoted as well though they cap the labor hours at 2.

    6 of your hours, $220 of your money plus mileage/gas. That is a tough sell. Hopefully someone will just make DIY kits or something.

    A DIY kit will be a tough job. But I agree $220 is a bit insane

    I need to find a place that will just sell me this. I could easily do it myself.
