    This is more entertaining than being bitten on the nuts by a bull-ant while taking a dump out by Big Red!

    Moosemeat - You've gotta be either the world's best troll or the best practical joker God ever breathed life into!

    I'd almost bet my lefty you have a running machine and just want to see how long you can keep stirring the pot.

    She looks good. Great work so far. Can't wait to see what the next episode brings!

    I am interested in this.
    I was told that in case you put a 'second hand' cluster, the setup program from BMW Germany will compare the miles between Cluster & BMSK and will set the highest.

    Is the BMSK the original ones ?
    Do you know the initial milage before fire ?

    Tell me what will happen to this, thank you :ear

    I have been rebuilding a FL400R Pilot and was on a site for those...Had the same type of BS from the site admin who think's he's the god of Pilots and acouple of his blind sheep...I scrapped the stock front end and had a Kaw front in on it...They said that couldn't be done...well it's done and works great!

    Keep up with your project, the trolls have nothing better to do than be Internet brave and worldly stupid...maybe jealous of the project. It's your project not theirs...

    How much money have you contributed to this project, as a percentage of its total budget? I am guessing the answer is zero. And that is how much what you "would like to see" matters.

    It's a big Internet out there. If you don't like this particular thread, you're free to move on.

    My understanding is that the mileage is not saved in the cluster at all, but in the BMSK. This is the case on the GS, so I assume the HP2 as well.

    Jim,

    I'm sorry but the mileage is present in the cluster.

    I bought a second hand GS cluster and connected it on my HP2E.

    I got the mileage of the GS, not mine :

    Not to worry, Jim, I think you're still correct. My understanding is that it's stored and updated in both the cluster and the computer, and the displayed value is whichever is greater. I guess some German with a clipboard decided that was a good way to beat odometer cheats.

    That said, I've yet to see a definitive how-to thread on switching the clusters. Maybe Some Dude will chime in .... I think he's looked into this recently.

    Sorry if I cannot understand all the english spirit (ideas behind words).. :cry

    I can tell you that I was said (by dealers) that when BMW swap to BMSK-P, the computer decided to set up the highest mileage between Cluster & BMSK-P if a 'second-hand' cluster was installed.

    For this reason, I will buy a 0 km cluster to replace mine on my MM2

    Well in my case with a brand new gauge cluster the thing should read whatever the mileage was on the bmsk unit. I have the origional but bought a new key from MAX. As you hardcore BMW gs/hp2e captains know from seeing the first batch of pictures the origional gauge cluster was roasted.

    $6900.00 + 600 more on the way from MAX and the new cluster from alpineride ($500) + $200 and change to get a new "R" title here in FLORIDA. Unless I drive up to Maryland to get it done. Since the origional Maryland title says"less than 75% total damage" that would allow me to get a new - non "R" title I believe.

    As for the budget.............never had one. Whatever it takes. It's mine and I own it. No note, no intrest, no financing.

    Those who have never done what you have done will never understand the reasoning behind the money spent. I am on my 5th project build, from the ground up. I build "Mad Max" freak bikes worthy of museum display. You have done a fine job. My hats off to you. What next?

    While I agree that a bike builder's opinion matters the most, I think everyone here is curious / excited about how a bike will run after fire damage.

    I know that I am.

    PROJECT UPDATE:

    Everything finally ready for the first time start!




    -unfortunately, as is common with these total revamp to complete-and-utter-coolness projects, there's a few little technical wrinkles to iron out still-




    -it was just a little fire-



    it won't take long to put it right again, see-here's a couple pix:
