I can brag by saying that I initiated this HP2 get together at our GS Challenge that sees 600 GS's get together annually (it is capped at 600 entries). I am actually in this pic :clap

I would agree that probably the biggest gain comes from the de-cat but the other major gain comes from the increased diameter of the Remus or Akra header. Some years back this was proved using...

Certainly sounds beautiful but not for the HP2 IMHO - twice as much to get in the way, twice as much to get damaged. If you can get the HPN version I think that is the real deal. :evil

Great! I see the guys all seem to be using rallye light setups - no fairings or towers. Is your roadbook bar mounted or attached to the steering head?

Perfect opportunity to get rid of them and fit a set of WP forks IMO. Not too difficult to source second hand and will transform the bike. Of course a Trax on the rear even better. :evil

I have used the Genesis and great but then replaced with the Remus Hexacone Titanium (and shortened it slightly but only really for aesthetic look). Akraprovic also very good.

2" is a BIG drop in suspension terms! Try and avoid the 19"wheel IMO ... defeats one of the selling points of the bike. If you want smaller wheels for road buy a MM and be done :wink:
