I did this mod to my adventure. Pull the filler out or as far as possible with out Having to disconnect any hoses you can either drill a small or even two small holes opposite each other in the filler neck or even just use a punch and punch two holes. When filling the tank fill it up or top it off. The holes let air escape and more gas in.

Caution: don't get mettal bits in your tank. Don't top it
off with this mod and then park it. It'll run out the over flow on the ground. Only top it off filling the tank when you're going to be riding right after.

Nice, especially the I'Dong Reservoir clip. Not a lot of wind noise, what setup are you using Warthog.

Tire selection

I know there are other threads discussing tire selection but since this is specific to the hp2 I wanted to ask here.

I need to get new tires as the karoos are worn out after 900 miles ( more the rear than front). Was thinking about the k60 heidenau. Any input or advice is appreciated.

Do a search for hp2 and you'll find several threads that have lots of tire info

Theres more tire info in here than you can poke a stick at but those Hiedenaus sure are hard wearing, I think I have used 3 or 4 of them(on the rear, didn't gell with the one front I tried) not to great in muddy stuff or wet tared roads but the longest wearing practical dirt tire I have used , just very inconsistent supply out here in Australia otherwise I would have used a few more

Is there a better tire out there in your opinion? I am a 50/50 dirt/Tarmac rider currently.

100+ horsepower, modest dirt skills and a dirt-tire don't go together if by 'better' you mean more miles of riding per rear tire.....I'm 99% pavement and go thru a street rear in 5000 mile -- same as my 1000RR Honda five years ago....and I'm slowing down as I approach 70. Pay up sucker. Bruce

I should probably clarify my last statement, LURKIN had said the Heidenau was not as good in mud or wet tar roads. I was wondering if there was a tire that might be better for those.

Bruce, I know you have had yours for quit some time. Did you stick with the stock rear rim size or did you go to an 18? I have heard rumour that the stock rim is pretty soft and bends easily also.
