Question

Hey Ned,

Don't know if you've ridden an HP-2, but I'm curious to hear what your thoughts are on the comparison between the two bikes?

Dan

I am also running a Scotts that may be masking some of it.
when kev and i were coming back from WF (w/jesses) i was getting it bad around 100 indicated, even in the corners..

i still get the shakes when i'm not running bags they just kick in at higher speeds, say ~110mph..

having a scotts on my 525 i'm starting to see the advantage of having a damper. i'll proly go this route eventually.

i will say Antware posited a theory while in WF. iirc, he contends the shakes are caused by the wind buffeting on the body which transfers the energy into the arms and onto the handlebars. he suggested taking my hands off the bars when this happens.

i agree with him in part, i took my hands off the bars and the shake seemed to subside..though i'm not certain it's the wind causing the shake as i observed the area around my arms/body to be quite calm with only incidental buffeting..the only buffeting i observe is directly on my helmet..

What is the difference in fuel range between the Adventure and the SuperEnduro?

SE has a 3.7 gallon tank, not sure what the Adventure has.

5.900 would've been enough.

The difference is significant. I typically can go around 160 miles on my ADV before the fuel light comes on. On my SE the fuel light comes on around 90 miles. If you drop the SE after removing the emission crap, you can get far less mileage since having two bowls empty will dump a lot of fuel. One ride I went on was very slimy and I fell over often. The fuel light came on at 40 miles. Always remember to hit the kill switch when you drop the bike to turn off the fuel pump.

My fuel reserve light is not working. If I run the bike on the road I am getting between 42 and 44 mpg. Off road with a lot of revs 36 mpg.
My problem is that the bike is running out of fuel at 2.4 gal. There is fuel left in the tank because I can slosh it around and get going again.
I have never run out of fuel on a bike before. But I have with this one twice.

I need to get my tank fixed so I can access the last gal. Then I will start carring a spare gal or two.

It's a pain in the ass. But it's worth it. I would not want more fuel in the front. So I need to settle for hauling it in the rear.

Mine did that- turn on the other fuel tap (there's one on both sides). DAMHIK.

One of my early projects is going to be adding a second tank. I've got a plan figured out... remains to see if it works, mind you, but I'm optimistic. If all goes well, I should have 1.5 extra gallons in a good location, and probably an overall decrease in weight.

I checked them. I think that both of my taps are turned on. I will check them again.

Dan
I have not ridden an HP-2 but I did have a 1200 GS. I liked my GS. It never was excitting. But at the same time the bike did a lot of things well.
In the end I could not get past the dry clutch, limited forward seating and high gear ratio.

The bike was a dream once I got it rolling. Over time I had gotten to use to working the clutch on my dirt bike. I was slippng the clutch on my GS all the time.

Now both of my bikes function similarly. That has been a big help for me.
If I could I would have both an GS and an SE.

Oh man, really is that all...

She maybe fun and everything but half the long trips we do, death valley for example already require about a 150miles in between re-fills..

Sound like the rear tanks are the way to go to achive at least 1.5g if not 2 more gallons.
