Isle of Man on my tuned H2 SX SE

Post by biosed » Wed May 30, 2018 7:02 am


So I took my freshly tuned H2 with brand new S21s to the Isle of Man for a few days during TT practise week. I presume most of you know about the Isle of Man TT, if not go google it, its awesome, but what you might not know is that during the 2 weeks of the TT they make a section of the track one way and there is no national speed limit so on some sections of road you can travel as fast as you like.

Here is me doing a lap of the Mountain, bit of traffic and still not up to speed. (3:00 mark I pass a police car at ~160km/h)

I went with S21 tyres again as I said I'd give them one more shot to at least remove the notion the OEM ones are different. Day 2 and a few laps in they look okay

Overall I am not totally happy with the bike, I don't feel "super charged". It is the best handling bike I have owned but it is heavy and not as fast as I had hoped for.

I will try put in a hot lap of the mountain today and see if I can get more out of it.

Just after finishing my last few laps. Some road! Will link to videos when I get them online.

Tyres are looking okay considering I gave them a trashing.

I was getting ~150km per tank with the onboard saying I was AVG 14l/100km at some points.

Topped out at about 260km/h on the mountain mile, there was more there but not much, I ran out of road/balls.

47 both sides on last lap, Had a 49 on the right earlier I think, must go thought the video (I only turned the power mode down for the ferry/spin home this evening!)

After putting more laps on it, did you end up feeling better about the bike's performance?

Also, I find it interesting that you say it's the best handling bike you've owned but it's heavy. I'm curious where you make the distinction between heavy and handling. Not saying you're wrong, just trying to get a better understanding as this was one of the main concerns I had for the H2 SX - the handling given the weight.

Thanks in advance and thank you for posting your TT experience, pretty damn cool. :-)

Feel might not be everything. Check out vcyclenut's post in this thread viewtopic.php?f=22&t=206&start=20

"I messed with the flash some and am up to 195 hp, this is by no means the end or will it will end up. There is always a learning curve with a new bike in the best process to dyno it, settings in the software and such

I rode with a new r1 that is piped and flashed and a new bmws1000rr yesterday that had a pipe not sure if it was tuned, but I was able to walk both of them by several bike lengths"

I have a friend with an R1M. I'm eager to ride with to see how they compare. But he lives 7hrs away so not sure when we'll get a chance to line them up.

The suspension is very good and the weight seems to be low enough, it's very agile and very predictable.
