Any way, enough bitching and thanks again.

P.S. Any info on moding the riding height of this bike is much appreciated! Please keep the suggestions coming guys!

Wilbers makes a kit to get up to 50mm lower overall I believe, involves shortening stroke and new springs in the forks and a new rear shock.

I have a 28" inseam, and no issues on an HP2 on the street. I have not ridden one off road though.

[COLOR="rgb(255, 140, 0)"]If you are not riding off road then a MM might be more suitable. Why not lower the front wheel by changing to a 19?[/COLOR]

Mike, around $1200 in your money. FYI, I toured their factory & I was very impressed with what I saw. The C2P stuff is all imported & is modular so you can interchange parts as neccesary. You can have the choice between a piggyback reservior or remote. Also can make it up to fit if you're using a Marcus underseat tank.

Cheers
Mike

I have fitted a boosterplug and I am very happy with the results
-The engine idle smoother
-Smoother throtlle respone ( not as jerky )
- engine runs cooler
- engine has smaller chance of pinging because it gets 6% more fuel.
- No noticable fuel consumption changes

BoosterPlug

Tanks for the reply Losper.
My hp2 has always has been jerky at idle speeds and it is hard to ride in tight situations.
I have ordered the BoosterPlug, so I will see if it will help with the slow stuff.

throttle

I found on my last hp2e that when i change the exhaust system the jerky throttle was solved.
Also did the k&n filter.
I tried the booster plug but change my mind.

Its not the first time I've been told that.. I usually wear light trials gloves off-road, but its true any thing helps in the event of an off.
