My HP2 has Remus exhaust and Foam air filter. It tends to backfire on deceleration and I am hoping this would fix that.
I have done some searching but don't find much on the HP2. Any info would be helpful.

I use the Wonderlick PC and have used them on a 1150, 1200 ADV and the HP2. They are great and definately help smooth out the powerband. The units are made for them by Dobeck Performance and known as Techlusion TFI's when marketed indepenedantly (may be a cheaper option). The Wunderlich one comes with settings for standard setup and a for a stage two = open exhaust & freeflow airfilter. I use mine with a full Remus race system and UNI filter or K&N. It works really really well and the unit is is easy plug and play installation. Many have them fine tuned on a dyno but I have never found it necessary.

One of the most common causes of exhaust popping with these bikes is a leaking exhaust - go back and reseal the header joints to Y-pipe and endcan with silicone and tighten clamps really well. My HP2 also wants to do it when the airfilter is dirty.

Finke is gone. Police clocked the bike doing 233kph on the last fast section.


just curious

the 2 race sets we built for MAX BMW Super enduro race team have lasted 5 seasons without touching them,,,supposedly at last report,,they got 1st and 2nd place at seasons end all 5 years

Woody - do the wheels have extra heavy duty spokes? Are the rim widths the same as OEM and just 18" larger rear?

Thanks for the input. It is very helpful.

pal these wheels have :

my superlite hubs
super duty/beefy ss spokes n nipples
superlace technology
weigh circa 5 lbs less on front and 4 lbs less on rear
sport 1.8x21 front double sig excels and 2,5x18 rear [ we can also do the same combo using genuine tubeless bmw X-laced rims in the above sizes, also with super duty spokes]

OBTW we can make all the rears tubeless

for the real crazy off road only crowd we now build em using A-60 1.6x21 front and 2.15x18 rear,,,toughest of em all

all the wheels we build are based on listening to your needs and vision for what ya want ,,,we know round the world riders have different needs than paris -dakar racers or guys that need to do some slab work to get their off-road hang outs

we even have adjustable sidestands

does that answer your questions?/
holler

woody

Actually, it`s a good photo of you. I wanted a HP2 enduro as a `keeper` when they came out, but just couldn`t afford one. I`m getting an R100GS special made for me instead, hopefully for around half the price of what the HP2 cost when new.

Got to love it! (along with the Czec beer)

Looks like you need a snorkel conversion or a Uni filter (with pre filter) at least.
