This thread is for anyone,that has some useful information on the HP2.

It can be anything from spare parts,to tuning,to suspension or modifications of any kind.

We'll see how this goes for a while,and then see if we can improve it in any way.

Gentlemen, just a quickquestion here.... the forward portion of my rearmost rubber gaiter keeps on popping of after some aggresive off road riding (well, not as aggressive as those in them BMW HP2 Erzberg vids)... IS THIS NORMAL?

PROBLEM
the handle bars on the HP2 is Alloy from Magura, the grip is held on with 2 x Torx tapered screws, with use they come loose and cannot be tightened. either try and get a new set of bars "Expensive' or suffer the left bar rotating in you hands with Twin trottle syndrome

MY FIX
The inside Dia of the Bars is 13.8 mm,
get a piece of steel bar/rod about 13.5mm x about 30 mm long ,
Drill the "insert bar" offset about 10 mm from the end,with a 4mm tapped hole.
buy 2 x M4 x 16mm Tapered screws in steel with Allen screw head
you now need to drill a hole in the centre/Dia of the rod that you can affix an old spoke, with the spoke attached to the hole you can now feed the bar insert inside the handle bars and attach the new tapered screws through Grip - Handle Bar - steel insert
tighten every thing up and you now have a firm clutch side grip

I have photos of my set up where can i send them and link to this post for future us ?

total items for kit
1 x insert for Bar 30mm long tapped with 4mm holes and insert holder
2 x M4 screws
1 x Insert holder

if you want to change the battery in your HP2, the only hawker battery that will fit is the Odyssey PC545 and you will need to modify the leads , bacuase the terminals are on the wrong side,

Replacement indicators - use the bendy indicators off the 650XChallenge. Perfect fit, and no reprogramming of canbus required.

Anyone sucessfully upgraded the fork springs to improve the soft front end?

I have changed the front fork springs from Std to Wilbers , wilbers are a progressive spring and i find the front end Good
I would have to say there is not a lot of difference but off road you are less likely to Bottom out

I have gone to a Wilbers rear unit and it is quite stiff by comparison with the std air shock , no doubt the Std shock is much plusher

Finally installed the HPN tank on my HP2 today. There were no bits left over so I hope I got it right. It took a bit longer than I thought due to a small fit problem. The bracket on the electronics module stuck into the tank so I could not slide it forward enough. Sorted it out with my dremel and a file. No fuel in it as yet so it will have to wait till tomorrow to see if it leaks:) A really good way to keep it easy fitting the tank up is to use two elastics to hold the fuel pipes to the frame so you don't need 4 arms... No swearing needed.

Looking forward to a long ride!

Filled the tank and it works fine. On first inspection I had a weeping fuel line around one of the quick action couplings. It turned out to be a couple of very fine threads from my cleaning rag over the o ring. No problem..:thumb2

These fuel line QA couplings are very easy to damage if the latching pin on the female connector gets touched before coupling. Make sure the latch is open/compressed before recoupling.

All the photos of the tank I had seen on the bike with HPN tank seemed kind of odd looking but in real life it looks very cool. The feel of the bike with 10 litres of fuel on board is the same as with the stock tank. :thumb2:thumb2

Problem:
Aluminium sidestand mounting plate bends, side stand switch won't work anymore, and bike can fall over.

Solution:
New steel mounting plate, OEM BMW, got mine under warrenty.

Crashed recently, destroyed the cap and lost the innards of the clutch reservoir (the little rubber sock and plastic holder bit)

Has anyone performed a retro-fit of a universal reservoir to the OEM hand control? I'm about to attempt - looking for any input.
