The bikes a beauty!!!!!!!!

on another topic I have a question for all you guys. What tire pressures are you running on your MMs. I was wondering if you could run the rear tire the same as the front- at say 31psi to smooth out the ride a bit. It states in the manual that for one up sport riding you can run front and rear at 30.5psi. Any idea what "SPORT RIDING" means to them. Is this for track use?

Just back from a long ride and I must say the screen is a good kit to have for touring. Did over 500km in heavy rain and the screen did a great job of shielding the rider.

A couple of pixs :

MegaMoto Country !


Lots of climbs & twisties !


Screen or no screen, got to try them both

For everyone who lives in the US, the Isotta screen is available trough BMW of Santa Cruz and sold as a Wunderlich part. The price is only a few bucks cheaper then buying from David and I already placed the order with him so I will keep it that way, plus from the Wunderlich catalog is not very clear which version they have, only one option, so I was not convinced that if I buy from them I would get the short one as that's the one I wanted.


Cheers,
The Man

Thanks for the update. I have my deposit with David for the same reason. Just waiting on shipment.

They also make a windscreen for the Xmoto. I hadn't been able to find anything for that bike in the states either. So my order is in for one of those, too.

Heated Grips

Although I bought my Megamoto new, I didn't order it and so it came without heated grips :( I've had heated grips on my last 5 bikes now so was a bit reluctant to go without. But, a quote of just of 310 from the local dealer to retro fit was enough to make me think I could manage without.

However, with autumn upon us and a recent ride out on my Rockster with heated grips on, my thoughts once again turned to heated grips. A bit of searching on the forums led me to belive that R1150 style replacement grips could be persuaded to fit so I ordered a par from Motorworks and set about the job of fitting them with a set of Symtec heaters underneath

As usual, nothing is quite as it seems and the Megamoto's existing grips are well and truly bonded to the plastic tubes they are mounted on. But, with a sharp blade and a bit of time, I soon had them all sliced and trimmed off. I did need to remove both grip tubes to do it, which was a bit of a fiddle as the handlebar switches are also mounted on the tubes, but nothing too difficult.
Next up I mounted the heater pad to the throttle tube and with a healthy dose of hairspray slipped the new grip on. I then moved onto the clutch side and hit a snag when the new grip just didn't want to stretch itself over the plastic tube and heater element. Got back on to Motorworks (great service) and ordered another throttle side grip to slip on.

Grip arrived, and with another splash of hairspray slipped straight on. Threaded the heater wiring through to the headlamp shell, and cable tied up alongside the existing wiring, so looks really neat.

I was hoping to fit the switch in the instrument surround but bracing on the underside prevented this, so I fitted into the left hand side of the headlamps shell, nicely tucked away. Wiring was pretty straightforward thecexisting, ignition fed, live plug for GPS / accessories is located in the shell, cable tied up and waiting to be used. I had some concern as to whether it was rated highly enough, but a few enquiries and a trial run has prove it ok.

Apart from the small loop of cable to allow throttle operation, everything looks very standard and unobtrusive, which is what I was after. Re-fitted the headlamp and set of for a run, lovely warm hands

Pair of grips from Motorworks - 13.08 inc P&P (www.motorworks.co.uk)
Symtec Heated grip kit - 41.50 inc P & P (www.windingroads.co.uk)
Total - 54.58

Saving over 250, and as a bonus the R1150 type grips have a softer feel than the standard items so slightly less vibes as well - happy wiv that

Hi - Lo switch fitted -
