Another Australian MM

A belated thanks to all the owners for the info and comments contained in this thread. Its a great archive for any one interested in this bike.
I bought mine new (non ABS) in December 09 in Melbourne and have just done a 1300 km ride this last week on a lap of Tasmania.
Despite all the options discussed here in thread, I haven't changed anything except baffle removal and am evolving it to soft rubber on both ends. Suspension is dialed to "hard". Its all good.

I have other riding choices as many here do, so it doesn't always get the consistent use that it deserves. At the moment I am fresh off it and it is again my favored bike. Except for the little engine rest area between 5.5k and 6, it is easy, fast enough and fun in tight corners and short straights.

For the record and maybe of interest to the other Australian owners In 2 years I have only seen 3 other MMs about in Victoria, I am sure that they were all different bikes, one was parked and had been recently dropped (Looked like a dirt accident) which impressed me at the time. The other was in traffic but the opposite direction. The other was a shop front trade in for a Victory (took a while to sell).

I'm going back to pages 50 to 100 for a bit of MM nostalgia.

Cheers

Test Run

Well, thanks to Ron50 and Co Ive been lucky enough to put another 800 km in a day on some of the best Megamoto twisty roads in SE Victoria. Im getting the measure of the bike and all I can say is Im totally hooked. I love the power and torque but will be going through the tread to work on the suspension settings, as Im finding the front end gets a little vague at speed in the rough.

the suspension settings are very important and difficult for me.
I could stabilize the front by setting the rear spring softer (preload).

Infrequent Updates seem to be a recurring theme of this Thread . Anyhow, fresh from another Blingfest, Whaddyareckon ?

Absolutely NO reflection on the Dealership,but the Bike had spent quite a while at Pidcocks,i'd ordered a pair of Renthal Bars which arrived but the Bar end-weights were on Back Order,i'd ordered Titanium Disc Bolts which were sent,but did not fit. The Renthal Bars got fitted but the Handguards were not compatable with the End-weights. Various options were explored but to no avail so the Std Bars went back on.I'd asked about some Bespoke Handguard Mounts but the Parts Department managed to source a set of BMW Items, which i was pleased about. The New Battery that got fitted under Warranty died,so a replacement was fitted.
The Job was finally Finished and i have to Thank Keith and the Pidcocks Service Department for their Efforts (And Patience).

I Took the Bike out and was Blown Away by the Difference. I'm no John McGuiness but i was stunned at the transformation. Left-Right-Left Combinations were much sharper,the Bike Turns-in much easier and more accurately to the extent that ,to start with,i was turning in as previously but the Bike went in quicker,leading me to have to pick-up and drop-in again. Once i had got to grips with things,i had a Blast .

I don't think so. Look CLOSELY. That's a camhead engine.

Pepot :
http://www.quellidellelica.com/index...-by-pepot.html

but it's for sure that you must start from a MM in order to put a HP2S engine. Could have been the one of Pepot even if
in this case, it think it is not

DeeTee,
Your MM looks great! Any idea how much weight your bike shed from the build?

Love the MM

Well I've put nearly 3000km on my MM in the last 3 weeks, on some of the best twisty roads in SE Australia and I have to say I'm enjoying it more than the S1000RR. The RR has been stting the garage gathering dust over this time. Note to self I must take it out for a run tommorrrow, if the showers stay away.

The MM suspensions just about dialed in, thanks to the posts in this thread and it's now sitting on the the lowest hieght settings so I'm not on tippy toes anymore. The front end is still a little light for me and I guess some revaluing may be in the mix down the line. Drilled out the filler neck and fixed an annoying leak in the tank and can now manage around 270- 290km per tank.

Well it's back to planning more rides

Cheers Glenn
