BMWJustin is right, it is a HP2 Sport dash, take a look at page #137

I am now lusting over those carbon fiber wheels also pictured on that page but have to climb that steep EUR3150 price tag (+ some EUR for tires and brake rotors).
From what I have read those wheels should add lighter steering (not really needed), improved acceleration (like adding 10bhp) and improved braking. All due to the much lower weight / rotating mass.
Thanks for the link, I might go for that.

I'd also like to fit the BMW LED indicators. Has anyone on here done the conversion?

They are sold here and are much cheaper than the BMW ones.

I have those, they work perfectly without any bsmk edit.
Before putting the glass back on make sure they are in working order, you might need to reverse polarity to make them work.

I think that the original blinkers are too big, that's why I changed them with the new BMW's ones (on left).

Thank you! Good tip! I have got the version for the rear that also adds some red LED for braking.. will see how that goes.

Just today changed the dreaded fuel pump. As awkward as the fuel pump & controller are arranged, it was a straightforward repair. Re-using the pump retainer ( part between filter & pump) was a trick but no drilling carving or grinding were necessary. Went back together pretty easy.

I haven't gotten much chance in the last year to get out on 2 wheels but I know I forgot how incredibly special this bike is. I'm still grinning from the freezing ride after getting it together.

I've ridden about 200 miles this year. Sad, I know... I've been busy with school and being a daddy. But just a couple nights ago, I changed out the air filter and drilled out the fuel neck. The MegaMoto truly is an amazing machine.

If it's any consolation, looking for a house, then moving while being a daddy eclipsed a year and a half of 'normal' riding. This summer looks to be better so far.

Question on oil level in the sight glass. I noticed some oil wetting the bottom of the engine yesterday. Last oil change I added the usual 4l with filter but it read over the top of the red circle in the sight glass. Since I could not locate the source of the oil, I'm assuming it was overfilled and drained approximately 16oz so now the level is midway in the sight glass - when the bike is warmed and on the service stand. Just curious if anyone else had a similar thing happen. Bike runs & sounds normal otherwise.
