Thanks. Ill have to do a new one.

I'm working on a website to but seeing as I'm a spastic orangutang at the best of times it's taking a while.

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...


I love that vent on the tank that the breather hose hooks up to, it just looks race bike trick...!

try the facebook page
 

Really nice stuff there...but can't seem to figure out what is commercially available and what's a personal project. 

Undetray, ECU cover and oil tnak cover seem nice for example...a one off instrument subframe would be nice addition like the one they had in WSBK...I think I have a pic somewhere!

I really need to go though it and sort it out.
The exhaust hangers, under tray, ECU cover aren't for sale as the they were my 1st parts and the moulds aren't really any good and I'm not sure if I could get another one out and they are costly just to throw away if they don't come out.
I am having an oil tank cover mould made as again my original mould broke up. (I've decided that I'm not very good at making moulds!!
Just ask if you want something just ask and I'll let you know, as I'd rather making something that someone wants and sell it straight away than make it and have it sitting around, as you can appreciate that the materials are expensive and for a hobby/ starter business I can't really afford to have finished stuff sitting around really as the wife start using about it!!

Anything that will save me weight and isn't already in the project interests me...my aim is to lose as much weight as possible. I am already below 200kg in my latest measurement and the absolute goal is to go below 190kg wet weight

Next up is the clutch system that I just had to upgrade!

The obvious first step is to throw away the lines and fit some braided one instead. Of course that wouldn't change much in terms of performance and the heavy feeling of the factory clutch would remain. So I decided to go all the way step by step and change everything.


Brembo radial pump was the way to go and the 16x18 find its way on th left hand side of the handlebar. Less effort to pull the clutch with a little more feel to it. Another pump this time the secondary one down below on the left side of the engine was changed with an after market Evoluzione.


The larger piston of the gold pump made the function even lighter for everyday riding but the thing that changed everything was a racing STM slipper clutch system! Boy what a work of art this baby is...I kept the Kevlar discs but changed the original slipper clutch with this Italian beauty which is so same that I had to hide with the engine cover...times like this I envy the Ducati boys! The operation of the clutch is now a dream with ultra light feeling and the performance of the STM system is mind blowing on the track since you can feel the clutch working while down shifting!

That STM clutch is a jewel.
Can someone find a way to show this masterpiece.
Anyone tested a transparent cover?

The leds look Confused really bad in my opinion.
I wonder how that is looking with out them.
I suspect that the visibility will not be clear,with the oils and stuff in there.
Maybe looks like misting on the lens

Thanks redrat for the link.
The clutch looks oem,and the color of the clutch is not helping for seeing the visibility through the lens.
With the red color of STM the misting will show more i think

My moto is that everything will happen at the right time...I am not rushing things and taking my time on this project.

New heads are since yesterday in the machine shop for evaluation and OEM fuel flow measurement so I should have them back in ine week or so...the lower part of the engine is already assembled and the big bore kit is ready to take its place. Pro-bolt engine kit alumnium bolts are on the way and I am waiting for the heads in order to put it back together.

when finished it should look something like this...I hope!

Talking about weight saving I really have to mention my friend Backys Power Cells who was kind enough to make me a new LiFePo4 battery and saves 3kg!!! The new battery is smaller too which means that I can finally modify the undertray with a carbon cover that eliminates the ugly battery tray

Yes this is WSBK engine that I love looking at...I also made the head covers black and the bolts are blue anodised like the one in the pic.

Magnesium cases are nice but impossible to find as well as the dry clutch

These are my head covers

Another thing that at first was skeptical about adding to the bike was the ignition amplifier. The early bikes were famous for their on/off feel when trying to come back on power. No matter how smooth you were on the throttle the power delivery was pretty brutal. I got the tip that if I upgrade the ignition of the bike and plugs the power deliver will become way smoother. Installation of the Evoluzione products is pretty straight forward with really good instructions. I just couldn't believe how much better the bike felt after that! It turns out that the stronger power to the plugs along with the new silicone wires made the burning of the fuel more efficient feeling the bike to work smoother...go figure!
