    If anyone here is interested.....

    I am putting my HP2 with a salvage title up for sale next week. I bought the bike back from the insurance company and after thinking long an hard about it, I decided not to rebuild it and get a reconstructed title or part it out. I am going to start with the asking price of $5250 and then drop it over time. I know there are at least that much in parts on it and the BMW shop that gave me the damage estimate said it was rebuildable. It pains me greatly to sell it after I put a lot of time into rebuilding it last year, but I don't have the time to do it again or the space to keep it as a parts bike.

    Teeth to the wind,
    Sno Dawg

    Rims switched with my other HP2 and the one on the right is for sale! I am putting together a gallery of detailed pics and the estimate.
    $5250 with a salvage title.

    Tyres...You can shred anything you put on the back of an HP2 in 2 days :D including the E09
    You can also make them last if you are nice to them (I dont recommend it, its no fun)
    The 908 are excellent, but dont come in a 17" (unless something has changed). But the front, matched with an E09 (dakar) is a good combination.

    If wear is your only concern, go the Heidenau K60 Scout. They are cheap, wear really well....just not as grippy.

    I have a stupid question to ask. Do any of you HP2 owners also own a rninet?
    Im really curious as to what the difference in the frame is. Particularly around the tank.... what chance a standard HP2 fuel tank "fits".....

    I’d also like to know that. I wonder how much modification would be needed to fit the R9T tank on a HP2

    Maybe one of you can answer this question for me.
    I’m looking to get a back up final drive for the HP2. Was there a spline count change among the hex/cam head years and what year was it? Thanks

    It is a Hepco Becker rear rack. It is nice but heavy. I used to have the HB luggage racks on that bike but I sold them a few years ago. I like the rear rack because it gives you a good solid place to pick up the bike when you fall - which I do!

    I would really like to rebuild an HP2, but unfortunately we are too far apart. Out of curiosity, could you post the parts list or an estimate cost that the BMW dealership did to you, for the repair? thank you

    I will send you the link to the Smugmug page of detailed photos I created yesterday. It has a picture of the quote that the BMW dealer gave me. The service manager told me that just about all of the plastics are reusable and only have minor scratches. The major fix is the rear frame which they told me might be able to be put on a jig because it did not look too bad. The bike has an aftermarket subframe made by a company in Italy.

    PM coming your way.

    Hey oldfool,
    Is it really a Wunderlich? I thought it was made by HB because it matched my side racks perfectly. I have never seen another one.

    I used the Wunderlich rack with an Accerbis one gallon gas tank. An early way to carry more fuel before the HPN tank. I posted full pics on hp2 Facebook site a while ago. I still have the whole set up.
