Nice pix and looks like a great ride!!
Look what I found....
S-SC parts from Japan. Titanium
Would like a shorter can though.
Wow, well found, those are loevly parts!!
$3717 for the exhaust :eek1...crazy Japanese
Well, after lusting after the MM for a few years, I finally got the opportunity to test ride one. And that was all it took (along with the recent semi-unintentional, but ultimately fortuitous sale of my R12GS). Mine is SN 99551: '08 with no ABS. First owner put on just over 3,700 miles and he added the nice "K" bike mirrors and expensive CF valve cover protectors. I've got the TT luggage rack, Wolfman Peak tail bag and the TT aux brake light/bracket on order. The SW Motech gas tank mount and Engage tankbag I had dating all the way back to my R1150RT fit nicely, so I already have a tankbag if I need one. Now I'm just stressing over whether to purchase the Wunderlich windscreen. I'll just have to see whether I will tend to take the MM on any longer trips where the windblast becomes an issue.
Thanks for all of the wisdom from this thread - I have read through it all and learned a lot.
Oh, and a pic (playing with an art filter on my Olympus PEN E-P1).
Congrats and welcome!!
There is loads of info on the various upgrades etc over on my site too - www.hp2.info
That's a fantastic angle of the Mega. Looks so sinister in B/W. Congratulations. Enjoy every mile.
Does anyone know if you can fit ABS to a megamoto? Sadly mine came without it (ex demo) and would like to have it.
Would I need to get an original BM/MM ABS system or is there anything else out there?
Am assuming it will be a costly exercise but so is my neck! Someone pulled out in front of me in the wet thins morning...
Any help is appreciated.
Generally, anything can be done. . . . . for a price.
But as far as retrofitting ABS onto your bike, I'd say it's not possible. You'd likely be looking at the ABS unit, and getting the wiring / BUS to communicate with it.
The ABS / standard was something I considered when I got the MM, so I sucked it up and got the ABS. Mostly because I didn't want to try to fit it later.
I know those panic situations 'just happen', but one possible alternative is to get to know your bikes brakes better. Lots of practice, lever feel etc so you're not caught out if you have that happen again.
Ride Safe, and enjoy the MM.
Unless you have a friend in the engineering dept at the factory, then I'd say it is not possible. The software features for your VIN# are set and therefore the computer is likely not to cooperate with such an addition regardless of all the equipment you would have to add/change above and beyond just the control unit, brake lines, potentially master cylinders, ABS rings and sensors, etc.
Thanks guys - I knew it would be complex!
I live in Perth WA and for 90% of the time we have beautiful dry roads; however, when it rains they turn to oilly slickness. Not fun at all!
I just installed one of these (the long version) and did a quick test run. Conclusion, the bike runs much smoother from the get go. I can go around roundabouts in 2nd without having to use the clutch or ride like a madman
The pesty lean range between 3k and 4k seems to have vanished, the pull is much stronger. All in all the engine just runs smoother at lower revs and seems to have gained some extra punch when accelerating. A 43 Euro's well spend, best addition to the bike so far.
Regarding installation: it comes with a sheet of install instructions in english, dutch and french.
Although some of the images do not resemble the megamoto and instead of only having to remove the left side panels you also have to remove the other side and raise the back-end of the tank to get access to the plug that you need to switch. I just stuck a pair of pliers between the tank and the frame, the slack in the fuelline is just enough to do this.
Then its a matter of unplugging the connector from the airbox, plugging the one from the cable in the airbox and connect the two remaining plugs. I then brought the temp. thingy to the front and tied it to one of the upper frame tubes.
About a ten minute job when you know what I had to find out.
I fitted one of these to my F800R, ten minute fit, definite improvement in running, and the fuel consumption has improved by about 10%. I must admit I was sceptical for the price, but it does seem to do what it says.
hmmm...this is something I am going to consider
I´m not so sure about the connection of the lambda sensors though, that looks rather strange to say the least.

Not bad looking at all, but I still like my Remus system better visually.
Anyone have a stock pipe lying around that you would part with? I placed a ding in mine and am interested in staying with the stock setup if anyone wants to part with one. Thanks
Is the blue on the rims powdercoated or painted?
I have a one owner, like new 2006 k1200 gt for sale or trade for mega moto. looking for mega moto
How big is the ding? You'd be amazed at what a paintless dent removal place can do to tortured metal.

Megamoto doing what it does best!
