    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!

    Prepping the HP2 for new neck bearings, fork seals and bushings. Also took off the holan pannier frames and wunderlich luggage rack, added new 90/10 tires as all my riding at the moment is on dirt. IMG_1844.JPG

    I put pirelli mt21 on the rear, dunlop geomax at81 on the front. The rear shock is stadium suspension.

    The rear mt21 works awesome, unfortunately I left the TKC 80 front on when I took it out, not a big fan of the TKCs in the dirt, though they work better than I would've thought on pavement. So I switched out the front but thats when I noticed a blown fork seal.

    Long shot; maybe a very long shot, but if I don't ask...

    Is there someone here from Germany who would be prepared to buy a GPS cradle for me which is advertised on eBay Germany and then post it to me in Australia? (I've been looking for this cradle for over a year in Australia and also eBay worldwide without success)

    I can transfer funds to you via Paypal for the purchase (€69) + post and a little extra for your assistance.

    Oh... its' sort of on topic... the cradle will be fitted to my HP2 :-).

    Please PM if you can help. Thanks.

    Added a Scott's steering stabilizer today; the supplied instructions say it's a tight fit and I would agree. I had to fiddle with the tank to get it as far back as possible to make room. Also installed Wunderlich 40mm (two 20mm blocks on each side) bar risers. I had to file a bit off the corner of each bottom block to clear the stabilizer mount, but it seems solid. Re-routed the brake cable, I think the best option was to go under the tank and in front of the frame steering tube, the stock cable was long enough. IMG_1495.JPG IMG_1496.JPG IMG_1497.JPG
