NickyBoy


19X20 actually is a lot better than stock, not only improves the power of the brakes but also dramaticaly improves the feeling from the lever

Yes the RSV with the Tigs on the video is mine Tongue


Great info cheers, thought it was your bike, I must've watched that video about 150 times, NO SERIOUSLY LOL....!!

Seriously mate,it sounds to me like you need to stop riding the roads and move to trackdays.

Braking like that into roundabouts is going to get you seriously hurt one day.

NickyBoy it sounds you are serious addicted to the Tigcraft sound!! Tongue

In the video the bike is with my previous engine setup with Pistal high compression pistons and 2001-2003 heads...I hope to be even better after I am done with the latest version of the engine

Wheels are one of the most important updates that I have done to the old lady. Stock five spoke Brembo items may look good...after all they are the same as the SP model...but OZ Racing babies look even better!!



The good thing with this mod is that it is basically a bolt on job if you swap wheels from the same generation and in the process you gain 2.3kg which is a pretty big deal for sprung weight. The bike does everything better, cornering is effortless and both acceleration and braking are improved!



A nice small addition to the blue Italian beauties were the yellow custom made OZ Racing decals that I had them made in UK at ezgraphics.



Considering how big of a difference the lighter wheel made to the bike in the future it would be ideal to follow 426hemi's route and get a set of BST carbon wheels

I managed to gather all the carbon bits over the years and I can tell you it wasn't an easy task. Parts for the first Mille are getting rare by the year so it was even more difficult to find carbon bits from the same supplier. I think it is worth every bit because when I compare the weight with the stock parts I lost 5kg from the bodywork alone

The carbnon tank on the other hand is a dream that I need to forget because I can't seem to get someone to make one for me at a reasonable price. So I went with the obvious choice of the the plastic one from the 2000 R model. I remember loosing 2kg but I will have to get back to you with this figuew since I think it may be more

-7kg is pretty awesome in my book!

I would love to get a carbon undertray to replace the original...now that would be something special and if I could get rid of the ugly battery box that would be ideal!

Something like this made by Jolly Giant's Carbonising.





He claims more that 1kg weight saving but he made this one off...maybe we can ask for a group buy to get him to make some more?? LOLLOLLOL

That is a considerable weight saving! 7kg on bodywork!

I had not seen the Jolly Giant carbon under tray before. I like that! I wonder if the battery is changed to a smaller lithium one? He has an FB page, might have to brave the dreaded FB for a few mins to ask him!

I turned my base 2001/2 RSV into an "R+"  (Ohlins/Oz/carbon etc etc). I have been upgrading bits of bodywork to carbon and just picked up a new but 2nd hand QB carbon (one piece) bellypan yesterday. I am waiting to see how the Ckennedy (see thread) carbon ones turn out. Otherwise I would have placed a few orders for bodywork already! Of the manufacturers that still make carbon for the Rsv, some only make the earlier shapes for 98- 00, not the facelift 01. 02, 03. I wanted the later shaped fairings for my 01/ 02. But might change the seat shape to 03, as that is really growing on me. I want seat and rear cowl, rather than a single piece seat as I keep an emergency tool kit in there (and a fold up walking stick lol!).

I am sold on the big bore. But that will be next winter hopefully. (Keeping up with you and NickyBoy, Hemi etc is going to get expensive!! I don't mind as my Ape is also a keeper. I don't have to sell it to have other bikes. Not rich, just not got kids lol!)

Keep the posts coming, very interesting and gleaning much inspiration here! Thumbs Up

Question everything.

I made another version of the undertray and made it flush fitting!
The moulds on the other hand are not the best as I made them and to be honest I don't know it I could get another one out of them. And it is a lot of work to get everything moved.

You can see my build thread with them in here... http://rsvr.net/carbon-whorage-and-other-parts_topic9721_page2.html

The sebimoto ones still have the battery box poking out.

I am making more cool carbon stuff so have a look at my FaceBook page and on EBay, but it will be cheaper though me!

Another really nice alternative for the 98-00 tank is the lovely one made in Japan by Moto-Works

http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b8/NitroArgi/10743369_845453838822667_1228968650_n_zps9syyxsub.jpg

It is made from aluminium and it holds 2lt more fuel...this one is from a mate that got it from them. They will not ship outside Japan and the proce is €3000!!! Love it...
