0.5mm thicker and 15mm larger for SM are due for heating realease and major brake force on road I imagine.

I think you can go and change your disk
Thanks chap

I want to bring the weight (what little there is) lower and forward- that and I may do front and rear.

I just want to make sure before I drill new Zegas.

Looking at Harleys for two-up....

Thanks Mav

Mav, I ran the SM disc on my enduro wheel, so I'm sure it'll work the other way around.

I'm deployed to Afghanistan with not enough sleep but bike surfing takes precedence...

I am an HP2 noob and especially with the SM wheels please bear with the questions.

The rear wheel just bolts on- what torque?

Are paddock stands (PitBull or BMW) preferred or is a lift required/preferred? What about for the front?

For the front, the caliper needs to be moved to accommodate the different sized rotors- enduro being smaller?

Can I run (based on the current discussion) the road rotor on both sets of wheels avoiding moving the caliper from inboard and outboard? (I have an extra front road rim w/rotor)

On HP2Enduro.com, someone mentioned that the front bolt is aluminum but there is a replacement bolt that is steel. Is the bolt part #11 in this diagram?



Can't wait to get back to the states and start riding this thing!

For the front, the caliper needs to be moved to accommodate the different sized rotors- enduro being smaller? Yep, the enduro disc is smaller

Can I run (based on the current discussion) the road rotor on both sets of wheels avoiding moving the caliper from inboard and outboard? (I have an extra front road rim w/rotor)It would seem so. Only, with the larger disc, fitting the SM rim means removing the caliper and brake pads to get the caliper over the disc. I'm hoping the with the smaller disc, this should be easier...

On HP2Enduro.com, someone mentioned that the front bolt is aluminum but there is a replacement bolt that is steel. Is the bolt part #11 in this diagram?Yep, it is bolt number 11 - you go from needing a 19mm spanner to a decent size allen key, which I think is the same as the sump...



Can't wait to get back to the states and start riding this thing!
Hope that helps - stay safe over there

Sounds like a good plan

I ended up using MSR fuel cans - that way I the fuel could be used for the bike or the stove

Queue gratuitous pic of my bike

fwiw, Bolt #11, the front axle keeper, is the same as on an F800GS.

A magical 7 hour canoe ride with a friend on an 800GS on the Rio Napo in Ecuadorian Amazon three days ago. The tie-down points were near vertical at the rear of the bike through drainage holes, not the best as the river was a bit wild for the last two hours approaching Misahualli. A fantastic and remote area.
