Ja, you are not getting any younger you know, buy it while you can still ride it  :peepwall: :pot:

Big Dom, the one item I would not like to disturb too often is the air filtration system, esp. on a offroad trip.

Looks like a city pimpmobile owned by some scab dude in the hood - this has motard wheels and has little to do with a 'hard/super enduro' used for its intended pupose. Sorry just MHO.

Sorry Dan I know we have bumped heads here before but once again you are talking KAAAAARK!

Why not clean the airfilter? It is common sense and really a five  minute pisseasy job to get out on a HP2, and if a servicable variety (recommended for such trips IMHO) probably another 5 to clean and maybe 10 to dry in the sun. A real no-brainer and I can assure you what will "disturb" you is when the machine cannot breath properly anymore because the filter is caked and you faark someting beeg up!

wel wel, lyk my hier is 'n paar ouens wat mekaar by die een of ander rally goed gaan blikseeem!! Laat weet my asb hiervan lank voor die tyd - ek wil dit beleef

Ek is baie dankbaar vir die uit eenlopend opinies en feitlike aspekte van die SE en HP. Die post het ek geskep om die kaf van die koring te skei en om die "hard facts" te kry. My hart is nog op die HP. Die bike doen dit net vir my!!!

My vrou is tans besig om elke aand uit die "Biker Boek" te lees. 20 kort verhale wat bevestig dat bike ry die siel vir pannie is. Die een storie is deur Simon Fourier geskryf en hy het 10 elke dag gebruiks fiets (uit gereken sy versameling). Hy reken 'n mense het 10 boneys nog om al die aspekte van bike ry te ervaar.

Dit het my laat dink om dalk al ander tipe bike te kry (sien hieronder wat ek in gedagte het). Dit sal dan my "collection" of 3 laat staan.

Wat ek het:
- 2000 Italjet Draster 180cc Liquid cooled scooter. Ek het die nuut gekoop op 1 Feb 2000 vir R27,000 en omtrent R40,000 bo dit spandeer. Die scooter is op opgevat na stage 6 van warm maak. Skop so 27hp uit en forkof. Dit is soos spiderman geverf en lyk baie cool
- 2009 1200 Adv - nuut gekoop vroer die jaar

Wat ek wil koop:
- 2005 Ducati 999 - ek kom van pad fiets ry af voor ek my eertse  Adventure in 2006 gekoop het. Ek mis die mooi lyne en die awesome power, handling en spoed. Niks beat 'n power wheelie op 100km/h nie
- 2007 KDX 200 - lekker rond fork bike vir R25,000

Met die collection voel ek dat ek die beste van al die werelde sal he

I will quite happily just take the last two with my HP2 - forget the overpimped scooter (if I must choose a scoot I will take a restored classic vintage Vespa). Met die Ducati stem ek heeltemal saam  :ricky:

Big Dom, about talking kak, if you have to clean HP2 filter everyday in sandy/windy/dusty conditions, it explains perfectly why their engines would fuck out! It is called dust ingestion and it is FATAL !!
This is exactly what I mean when I say that KTM has the offroad pedigree, they know what works offroad.
Not even the GermanBMW engineer understood how important air filter placing on a offroad bike is!
Or why tappet covers do not work for crash bobbins.

2SD, bring n bietjie statistieke waar die boxer motors op HP2's agv sand/stof gefail het. Elke fiets het sy goed en sleg maar die bottomline is dat elke man koop wat hy van hou. Hoekom ry ek n 1200, omdat ek wil. Enige meganiese issues even na meer as 100 000 kilo's. Fokkol meneer en ek gaan nog n 100 000 op hierdie bokooi sit. Die HP en die SE is 2 spesialis fietse en  albei het goeie en slegte punte, punt.

Go stick your crash bobbins where they fit best - will help with the kakpraat!

What I said was that your assertion that it was a bad idea to "disturb the air filtration" too often was pure pollycock. I also said that there was an easy remedy for the intake placement (there is no problem with the placement of the actual filter - that is the KTM problem!) You can be sure that the KTM's on the PD get theirs cleaned daily ...and yes even BMW have some inherited "offroad pedigree" from the PD. Maybe you need an earwax or hearing aid? :biggrin:

HJ on:

What gets me is that this tosser is doing the same to this thread than he did to my thread when I was looking to buy another bike. He trolls around and gets people de bliksem in for nothing.:lamer:     AFAIK he doesnt own either of these two bikes but knows EVERYTHING about them. :deal:

2SD, vir wie wil jy van wat met jou wysneus aanmerkings oortuig ??? Dink jy regtig die ou wat  n dud gekoop het gaan na jou to terug kom en se: "Jammer oom Daan, pleks het ek na jou geluister".

HJ off.

James, what worked for me was to ride both the bikes and listened to the one talking the lekkerest with my soul. After all, you have to want to ride the thing every possible opportunity. :ricky:

If you really want to listen to other peep's comments, listen to owners and first hand experience. :3some:
