Anyone have a carbon hugger on the MM. If so can you give me the details of where you got the piece and how much. Thanks.

How could they put a non-street legal tire on the Japanese MM?

The Wunderlich item as shown below is made by Ilmberger Carbon in Germany and the quality is superb, if not cheap.

Not sure about the US, but in the UK you can get them from Sandbar Composites

Can't decide if I like the belly pan or not. Does anybody have one? Does it spoil that open look?
Does anybody use valve covers, to avoid the mess that the cyclist made of HP Saucy's bike? Inquiring minds want to know.

I don't think they were supplied to new owners with these tyres on (don't quote me) I think they were show only for the PP look. When I get time later I'll do a search to find out for sure what's what.
If I remember correctly a few years ago there were some road legal "rain tyres" available but can't remember who made them.

Personally I'm not a fan of the belly pan, it doesn't look bad, just not the look I like for this bike.
I think that HPsaucy's experience tells us, all and any protection is a good thing. I use the standard GSA valve protectors.

Yeah, I dont like the belly pan either. Takes away from the naked look of the bike.

Ventura BMW have managed to get a GS crashbar from Touratec to fit onto the MM, I haven't seen it yet, but they made it fit, so hopefully that will help with any future mad cyclist attacks!

I think these are they, road legal, Avon AV49/50




I don't mind the look of these either although not a "wet" tyre as such but meant for wetter conditions, so might suit. Avon storm 2 ultra.

Ilmberger Hugger

Hi

Comes with 3 longer bolts to attch to hub. Nicely made but may look a little chunky on a MM.

Does anybody know where is the canbus jack for the Zumo canbus cable? On the HP2 enduro there was one canbus jack below the cockpit, but on the MM i cannot find it, maybe removing the carbon mask? i am bit lost.

It's behind the headlamp, left hand side as you sit on the bike.
