So here it is...after all the waiting the new loom is finally ready and the end result is more than satisfying. The new loom alone weight just over a kilo!!



The loom including the stock rectifier weights 1424gr...I think I can find a mosfet rectifier that weights less



And this is the final number inluding the Ignijet ECU with all its cables....1986gr

I wonder what the total weight saved will be at the end?

You shouldn't have shown me the last picture of the carbon pipes!  LOL

There is a small tuning show the upcoming weekend here in Athens and the plan is to have the bike there for desplay. It should be good for the shop so some of the "clients" will showcase their projects.

Will upload pics!

Excellent news Nitro, like everyone else I am really looking forward to seeing the finished bike (as I am sure it will continue to evolve) and hear about the total weight loss
Full Arrows system, 1060 Big Bore, PC5 and Evo Airbox. Bring on the big grin!

I send them straight back and go a more traditional route of Akra's maybe? A quality project like that i'd rather have perfect fit and finish than another 500G's over say Akras..

Atleast you know akras the finish will be there and they work well with these bikes.

Morning all,

I am really frustrated will all these and to be honest I even thought off parting the project apart

To be honest I have no idea what is the next thing I should do...already sent the pics to Konstantin at Smaltmoto and waiting for his response... Confused

That will probably take a long time, when my airbox was wrong it took months for them to reply to emails, had to get sh*tty with them in the end.

It wasn't always like that but they took them 4 months to prep this system!! I mean come on I would expect them to get it right!!

The problem is that this time of the year is more relaxed for me and now I can finally concentrate to move the project forward. I had thoughts firing it up before the end of the year but now that went to hell.

How much longer will it take I wonder?? Disapprove

Impressive - what is the final remit for the bike, is it just to be lighter than stock, are you going to compete on it or something. I for one cant wait for the product to be finished, you've got more patience than I have ever had. Well done.

I was about to order same system for my big bore from them , but now i will probably look for other options. Im sure they can fix it easily once they get pipes back, but how long that gonna take time? Looks like they never rushing.

I was saving up for a Smaltmoto sysyem a couple of years back and ended up spending the cash on a set of BST's instead, i have to say that im glad i did now, regardless of how small a company is there's just no excuse for that is there, not when its tied in with the time it takes to produce, lack of response to communications etc.
I really feel for you Nitro, I'd be as gutted as you obviously are...i just hope that they do sort it out for you and in a much quicker time than they took to make it in the first place.

They made the single pipe headers for mine and after being setup by Pcr it made less power than the original headers with a single rear crossover pipe, they have been hanging up in my shed ever since.

Jesus, really....not a great advertisement at all then...i know James Wiggins loves his gen 2 set up from them(and it made good power)but it seems far more miss than hit with what you end up with, and for the price they charge that's just not on..

You see such a lot of negative info about these guys, I wonder why people bother, especially as you say given the prices. Will they ever have the resources to out develop Akra?
