Default HP4? I don't need no stinkin' HP4!



list of mods:
dual 55W HIDs
LED parking lights
BMW LED rear turn signals
Watsen Design front turn signals
Brembo M4 monobloc calipers
Brembo RCS19 master cylinder
Brembo folding clutch lever
Galfer brake lines
Galfer G1375 sintered ceramic brake pads
Rizoma Proguards
MRA windscreen
Puig frame sliders
Yoshimura engine case sliders
Yoshimura rear axle blocks
Yoshimura oil filler plug
Yoshimura inspection plug
alpha Racing magnetic oil drain plug
K&N oil filter
BMC race air filter
Power Commander V
Akrapovic full exhaust
Attack Performance rearsets
Ballistic Evo2 8 cell lithium battery
carbon fiber
full-length bellypan
rear hugger/chainguard
clutch cover
side panels
frame covers
tank panels
triple tree cover
fuel cap cover
instrument trim

I've definitely reached a stopping point! I'd like to do a 520 conversion and do the rotors, but I'll save that for later. Maybe it's just me but I haven't found any problems with the stock suspension, and now that the steering damper is adjustable I don't see the point of swapping that either.

I obviously lust after BST wheels, but that's going to take some serious persuading to the Better Half :P

Very nice looking bike. I havent found any problems with the stock suspension. I did so the massive difference between the stock suspension and ohlins on my 2007 R1. I am planning to do the shock, and cartridge kit for the BMW. I am hoping it is a massive difference.

Bike looks very nice mate. But for the guy that has a standard S1KRR and whants to to get it up to the speck of yours. It might work him out cheaper to buy the HP4 from the word go. And have electronic suspension on top of that.
