How do I do it and what do I need for my M2?

The easy answer is that you spend a ton of money. The bike is ready for them, you just need to get a left side rotor and somehow track down one of the matching left side calipers. If you really want dual brakes it'd probably be cheaper and easier to buy a regular set of brakes from a Japanese bike and have adapter plates made to fit them to the Buell forks. They're common on things like supermotos when you swap the tiny front rotor out for a 320mm rotor and need to space out the caliper. I assume if you bought an inch thick plate of decent quality aluminum it'd be pretty simple to make some in your garage with a bandsaw and a drill. If you wanted to get crazy with it you could just buy a whole front end off of a Japanese bike and swap out the stem, then you'd have some nice upside forks for your M2.

I searched for "dual disc" over the last 2000 days using the BadWeatherBikers search tool and found a bunch of links including:
Some posts within the links say the dual discs aren't so practical for street use. It does seem that everyone thinks they look awesome though!

I can't imagine having two 6-piston calipers and 340mm rotors on the road. The supermoto I had was a 4 piston caliper and 320mm rotor on a 300lb bike and I could barely keep that back wheel on the ground.

Your Buell will look better and brake worse.

Unsprug weight is the enemy of good suspension compliance.
Adding an extra brake caliper and rotor will add significant unsprung weight without improving braking performance.
Why spend more money to make your bike less capable?
If you need more braking power or better lever feel and feedback, try changing the pads and cleaning the rotor.
