haha these will be the final mods, I promise

I havenīt bought any of those colored valve heads yet but if I would: black. I think they were never shown here so I thought I would share the link for anyone interested.

Are you talking about the mods on that HP2E? Itīs different but Iīm not sure I like it, those open K&N filters must make some interesting noise though.

I have seen carbon replacements once (on ebay) for the to white plastic pieces on the back but I had a go in photoshop to see If I would like the look but I donīt, well yes maybe when I have them sprayed white again as the weight improvement is of course without question

Famous "final words"

But, for sure the HP2E mods, I think the airfilters fits the bike. Although I do think that having the battery ed cut out just creates a big cap.

For the rear-end, I like to have a more clean look as the stock one. I found this carbon tail: But are missing pictures that show the line of the motor when fitted.

I also thought about having the number plate and lights fitted to such a rear mudguard:

And then drop the current one in total.

Anyway still in the planning phase...

hawideri,

I did my own and saved some money. Some ideas to share:

I really did not like the stock tail. It's too, well, cumbersome. So I decided to make a simple one. Cardboard mock-up, then aluminium plate. Large holes to save some grams :)



Mock-up fitting to make sure it fits ... keep the stock plate light as I think it is a legal requirement. You will need some holes for the lights.



Paint and reflective tape for safety,



As it is mounted ... the stock signals can be fitted provided that you prepare the holes for the stalks and bolts.



Cheers

That is the front of the BMW G650 xmoto....

This bike is bought for the profit of buying and selling a 'crash-bike'. The owner (not me, I promise!) did not succeed in getting all the original parts... He first asked 15k.

Still, for another price it will give someone a nice bike with a very ugly 'face'. But that can maybe fixed.

Hey bikecat, thanks for the comprehensive 'How-to'!
Pretty cool to make your own mods like that.

Dumb question of the day:

Will HP2E side panels fit onto a MegaMoto? I really like these!
http://holan.pl/en/product/24/29/106...HP2E_fuel_tank

In the next couple years, I plan to replace anything I can with carbon fiber bits. Wheels, body panels, hand guards, rear tire hugger, etc.

YES.

I'm coming out of the closet. I ride a MM but I really preferred the HP2E livery. So now I get the HP2E looks and the fantastic MM's road-oriented goodies :)

The HP2E panels are shaped differently, and has a cut-out to accommodate the oil-cooler. But mounting points are all the same.

Cheers

Excellent! I like the front of the enduro quite a bit, but it fits the offroad set up better. I see that you can get tkc tires in a 180, so you could go for a Terminator/Road Warrior look now!

To HP2 or not to HP2...

Hi all,

I don't yet own an MM yet, but I'm close... very, very close...

There's one for sale in Sydney which I took for a test ride last week. Awesome fun and I think it's the one to replace my trusty '05 K1200R. If it's still there tomorrow I'm buying it.

A couple of stupid questions (which are probably answered elsewhere but...). 1) Are there any 'must-do' mods? The bike I'm looking at is stock/factory spec/untouched? 2) Are there any other owners in NSW fancy a blast up Putty Road?

Thanks!

T.

'must-do'.... I don't think so, it's all just a matter of taste or preference. The stock bike is pretty darn perfect

Just ride and enjoy!

The small fuel tank (low range) and the weak aluminium rear rack have been often criticized.

There are aftermarket stuff out there that address these items, if you need them addressed.

Tony, as you come from a powerfull K1200R, I would say :

1) exhaust header replaced by AROS one ;
2) K&N air filter
3) RapidBike EVO module.
4) Perfect settings of the damping.

After all that, yes the MM will perhaps make you forget the previous bike you had
