    still working on that - can you believe it?
    since the beginning of October.

    Fingers crossed that early February will bring the new arrival!!

    Got mine used for $14.5
    Just over 2,400 miles
    Both sets of tires
    Defiantly never ridden off road.
    Was basically stock except for wilberts shock.
    Did a few upgrades. Exhaust, pannier rack, tuning modular, underseat tank.
    Small bug guard for cluster would be nice. Any suggestions?
    Thanks

    Along with the springs I went with less air gap and thicker oil. Really helped.

    Anyone else have a ZFE go bad?

    My HP2E has been drawing 32 mA while sitting. Ran down my battery a couple times before I figured that one out.

    While debugging this morning, I unplugged the ZFE and saw current drop to zero. Removed the ZFE and it rattled. Ruh-roh. Popped it open and found a capacitor floating around in there, and the circuit board had a lot of corrosion. Apparently that's gonna cost me $700. Bring My Wallet indeed.

    Anyhow, just posting FYI. These things rarely go bad, but it does happen. I wouldn't be surprised if the extra beating taken by modules on off-roaded HP2s causes them to go bad at lower mileages.

    I spoke with my dealer. The ZFE must be a new unit ordered by the shop, it must be programmed by them, and the bike must be present when they do it -- they apparently can't program it solely based on the VIN and then hand it to you. Cost was $700 (including tax) for the new ZFE, and it'll be about an hour labor to install and program.

    Seems very expensive for me.
    changed my ZFE too. about 400€ now.
    labour was 1 hour ok, should not cost you 300$ more.

    I've seen a CF bug guard on a Megamoto. I'll post pics ASAP. BTW you should always ride your bike defiantly - it was made for deviant, defiantly devilish riders.

    Anyone out there with experience finding front fork cartridge upgrades for their HP2.

    I just learned that RaceTech has one (RaceTech G2-R 25mm Cartridge Fork Kit for HP2) and curious of any one has experience with it or any others out there.

    I did a Race Tech Gold Valve / Spring update on my MegaMoto... It was a little "stiff" at first but settled down and gives great "feel" on the twisties... Go for it!
