Hiya, just want to share a recent mod.

I bought a Woody's SS sidestand plate and fitted it. Be warned, the stand was too wide and I had grind down the holder of the stand somewhat, but that is another story ....



So after fitting the sidestand plate I found that the old plate was really bent, which brings a new problem .. the bike is now too upright at rest. The solution was to shorten the sidestand which will require cutting the sidestand down. Woody offers a good solution and since I am too far from Woody's, imitation is the best form of flattery, I got a welder to make my sidestand adjustable.

The next project was a footplate for the tiny stock sidestand base. 2 pieces of aluminium, many hours of elbow grease with grinder, blade, measuring tools and template, and with the sidestand adjustable, I now have the advantage of simply making a small hole to thread my sidestand through and fit the plates together. An elegant solution.

Will report, of course, as time and kms progress. Like with a new bike I was told to have some patience before optimum performance has been achieved.

Cheers!

Great story Macroenie, very interested in the follow up!

on second thought, it does not look very comfy or suiting my preferred riding position like the MM gives me now

more of these kind of bikes at http://www.seservice.se/mainpage_en.htm

Mega does not start

I've nit been able to ride the Mega recently so it had been sittin a bit. Long story, as well as crazy high temps.

Went out for a ride (battery on Tender, gas had a bit of Stabil), and it cranked well, dud not catch. Last year did this, and it was the fuel pump controller. I checked that item by swapping one from the GS (the Meganoto FPC worked in the GS), so it was not the FPS.

Without a GS-911 I'm unsure what to (try) diagnose next. I'm guessing fuel pump or ring antenna.

Anyone else have input? Thanks in advance.

deduct the ring antenna

If it's the ring antenna, it wouldn't even crank and would send a code on the speedo (at least my GS did).

I have a few questions on the MM, appreciate some feedback.

Question 1:

The tank range countdown; how accurate is it or should i ignore that? Today I got the countdown started at 78km to go. I then measured the distance on my odo (3 km) but when I checked the countdown again it was 72 km i.e. 6 km travelled. So it looks like the countdown is based on the fuel sensor strip and not actual distance travelled?

Also when I filled up, I had travelled 153km total and I pumped 8.7 litres of fuel i.e. I have a consumption of about 17.5 km/l. Based on a 13 litre tank (with fuel neck drill hole mod) I should have at least 4.3 litres or 75 km left. It seems that it is better to use the odometer as a more accurate fuel gauge?

Question 2:

How does the signal cancellation work? It works fine when I am changing lanes, but when I turn, sometimes it does not self-cancel?

Would like to know your experience?

Cheers

GS Marc,

Thanks. So you managed 232 on 14.2 litres? That is about 16.3 km/l. I thought the bike's fuel capacity is only 13 litres. So the fuel tank neck modification get another 1 litre, huh?

Thanks.

I did 247 km (153 miles) with 14,21 liters (3.75 gal), not 232 km.

Yes, the neck is with 2 little holes.

New to the HP2 MM

Hi guys I've had the privilege of picking up a used 08 MM, imported from Missouri, US with 1000miles on it.
Previous ride was a K12r. Loving every minute on it, only problem is not getting enough time to ride it.

This thread is a great resource, thanks for the valuable insights and discussions.

Are you from Las Vegas? I know of only one other MM here and it's the owner of the BMW dealer.
