I have read quite a few posts about replacing bearings, etc., in Atlas EQ-G mounts. But does anyone know if it is possible to make similar upgrades to a Sirius mount? Are there kits of upgrade/replacement parts for the Sirius?

And what would this gain me... more tracking stability? Greater weight capacity? Or both?
