your bikes looks soooo incredible.
Roundel blinkers just shipped and should be here when the plaque holders arrive at MAXBMW (best dealership ev.......ver!) from DER VATERLAND! We be mountin' and wiring dem shits up SON! Hooo-ahhhh
Got my black anodised billet aluminium fuel cap in the mail today. It's going right back to the shipper. It has a nick in it and the evidence is on the envelope. M.....!@^$^&$...ers!
I hate UPS, USPS! Fed-ex is the best. Every other shipper blows me bag!
man that sucks. it looks good tho. hey wats the link for the headlight we were talking about today?
don't know if this is what you were talking about but it would look sweet. maybe powdercoat the light guard red.
Hell no. go to carbon parts and you'll see the g450x set up. sinister looking!
pro brake carbon fx stainless steel braided brake and clutch line
both handle bar fluid containers and bleeding lines with dot 4 and magura mineral oil (clutch)
both BMW roundels and plackards on the side panels (still waiting for the roundel blinkers from DE)
black anodised billet aluminum fuel tank cover/lid
almost done with:
a very cool and totally functional luggage rack and pannier mounting system. made it out of 1/8 inch sheet aluminum and 1/2 inch solid aluminum rod. I had to buy a metal brake and tubing bender but worth it. Fabrication is almost complete, left side mounts and then off to welder/powdercoater. Looks like I bought it from Touratech (matches the little one they sell for hp2e only larger)
I have fab pictures if someone wants to post em here for me.
Yep, let's see the pics. I've been told bending aluminium is tricky as it can weaken at the bend so let's see how you did it.
Then I guess I'm now off the hook for sending you a 6 pack of PBR?!
could you post a link please
be carefull, the China-men are buying up everything BMW. shipping em overseas by the hundreds. and paying out the waaazoo for them. no more good deals to be had.
proper tools and some heat and you can bend anything.
Yes, I installed one this past weekend on my HP2. Shorai LFX14A1-BS12... 14Ah model. It spins a little slow on first hit. I recommend turning the bike on, and waiting 60 seconds or so to let the battery wake up. It hits strong on the second crank. I've only had if for a week, so we will see how it goes.
I added 25mm of padding to the front side of the battery box, and 15mm of padding to the bottom. Then dropped the battery in, and secured with the clamp. Nice and tight. The shipping box comes with about 15 pieces of medium density foam with sticky backing. Great for making the smaller battery fit in a larger space. Very thoughtful of the Shorai folks.
Nice! Thanks a bunch Warthog!
They say : LFX18A1-BS12 , 18 Ah for the HP2 models
Like the KTM color scheme.
A Ballistic 12 cell battery is firing my R1200 right up. A cheaper option then the Shorai.
Have you actually had it running yet?
If still having trouble with pics, send a few of the latest to me again and I'll post them for ya.
Congratulations on the perseverance to take on such a project. My hat truly goes off to you! Please post some pictures of how the bike looks now.
