I think that dealers are now more aware of all the electronic settings than at the time when the HP2s were built.

Reinstall headlight fairing. Go for a ride.

I searched and found this for you, below the diagram are the partnumbers, scroll all the way down as the switch is part 7 mentioned below the infra-red stuff (parts 5&6) which you probably don't need.

If you are going to install it, will you get a new unit? If new then you might need to go to BMW dealer to pair it to your bike so all the functions will work via the switch. If they (Italian BMW) cannot help you then just ride to Germany and get it done there

A ride to Germany could be an option, but not in this weather!
Anyway, thanks a lot for the informations!
I am trying to get a second hand unit, so probably I will not have the CD rom with it.
Just a last question, if you can hel: is that cable the link between the original MM wiring and the dash?

There are plenty of bikes out there far better suited to run a sidecar, such as a 12GS, but a MM. You'd have to be CRAZY to do that.

ah, yes, I see. Thanks for clarifying.

I agree, most of my mods can be removed which will leave you with a 'standard' 1250cc HP2.
I keep all the bits for when the day will come that I would consider selling it. Finding them again or having to buy them new can be quite a task.

A sidecar is a mod I will never consider, I'd rather buy a nice cage then.

It's amazing how clean the MegaMoto looks without the exhaust can.

Hello mate,
I bought the exahust off a guy here in Italy who himself bought it in Germany during a trip.
He was made by someone dealing with exahust, but honestly the seller did not remember the name.
As fro the brakes, I have replaced the bottom of the forks with a couple of elements cnc made by a company here in Italy.
If you like I can get some others made
Brembo's M4 108 mm complete the package!

I completely agree with you, I like the look of that rear wheel!
By the way, I am painting it in white...it will be even more neat in my opinion
