I'm sure he will start running it after he will get all the secrets of the engine management etc

ANOTHER nice addition to my bargain HP2. (This will irratate the cynical bed-wetters here even more.)

I'm asking these functional questions since I'm an industrial designer and function takes precedence over aesthetics with rack systems, and utility products like these. Or the HP2e in general.

I would have thought that asking questions, and humbly inquiring for advice from this group may have been something you'd consider. Instead it's been quite a show on how much you've ordered, how much you've spent on powdercoating or carbon. It's been a project lasting over a year and to be honest I don't see you approaching the important aspects of mechanics to get the bike moving. If it's a sculpture, that's fine. We've been patiently waiting since your initial purchase as to whether you have the ability to get it moving under its own power again.

Just for comparison, I've completed entire running show vehicles for international auto shows in less than six months. Award winning, magazine center spread concepts which have running gear, working doors, lighting, fully trimmed leather seats and polished aluminum exterior brightwork. Yes, it takes a team and crazy delegating and organization, and loads of hard work and humility. There's no question things cost real money, but that's often irrelevant compared to personal effort in the final product.

It's good to see progress in a few areas, but some of us would like to see the mechanicals addressed as well.
Give me your address and I will send you a fruit basket for all the competitions you have entered. Try looking at the overhead picture. There is a big hole over the seat bolt Einstein!

I know that finding electronics parts (cluster, BMSK, ZFE etc) on the web is not 100% sure to have them up & running on your bike.
They are not just "plug & play" parts.

I myself decided to have it running before doing other investments.
I have it running now.
Oh thank Heaven for (7-11?) oh, nope that's not it, I meant the BMW GT-1 Computer in the corner of the classroom, whew. Where would My project be without the helpful input of all the nice inmates here. Thank you! Honestly, Thank you! : cry:lol 3: lol3

Damn I love this thread!

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

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 :
