    My tank and windscreen seem to be the same color white. YMMV.

    Nice to see this thread come back to life! I just had a great ride on mine today.

    Looks like fun.
    What bikes were the two guys you were chasing riding? Seems they were flying in the straights, but had you on their tails through the corners.

    Yeah it's indeed a lot of fun and the only way to use the bike for what it can't do.
    The riders in the end, one of them rides a suzuki 750 gsx and I'm not sure of the second but I'm pretty sure that it was a yamaha r1.
    To get to them at the end of the straight I need a good speed out of the previous corner.
    The straight is only 400 meters so if I do it right and they don't, I can keep up.

    That one is on the wishlist.
    Is it just plug and go or are ajustments required for motor management.

    I think motor management is not needed.

    It is just a decat header which could support a better A/FR if installed.

    you need to change the header also.
    HASLAUER (Germany) is the option.

    Rosso Corsa or Supercorsa? The Diablo Corsa tires I see listed are from ~ ten years ago.

    No experience with those. My bike came with Supercorsa SP and they stuck like glue. They didn't last very long, maybe 2500 miles. Because they (and I think Pirellis in general) have a soft carcass they felt sort of numb to me. But people either like a soft tire or a firm tire - I'm in the firm tire camp. I think the Rosso is a slightly longer wearing version and if you're a Pirelli fan I bet it's a good tire.

    OK....
    I rode a favoured piece of road last week on my Dunlop Roadsmart3s which were near end of life...and had a blast.
    And then I did the same piece of road with the Pirelli Diablo Rosso 3s on this morning.....

    Im still smiling:).....2 thumbs up from me.

    What is the maintenance like on the HP2 Mega?

    I've heard that new con-rods are specified after 30k Miles. Is this true?

    Hummmmm… it runs an oilhead/hexhead that should pretty much outlast the bike.

    I am no connaisseur of these things.

    Yes, maintenance is terrible. I think you should sell it for whatever you can get for it. I will PM you a very low ball offer now. ;)

    Maintenance on the hp2 is simple. Every 10000km, alternating between an oil change and a valve check. I’m fully expecting to get 200000km out of mine.
