MotoCorse Bits and Pieces

Still trying to revive my babe
As already metioned I installed the first prototype of the rear shock's rocker arm axle made from Titanium. Weight savings is not as big as expected, only 35g (26%) because of the two big bolts which are aluminium in the OEM version. I try to improve the design.

Besides this and the MotoCorse bling bits I also installed their CF heat shield. Very interesting design: on the RH side you'll see an air intake for cooling the loop pipe. Can't wait to checkout whether this really works.

The new shock absorber tripod is from Spider Accessori Moto, Italy.

Beautiful, not jealous at all )

But isn't it a shame to hide the motocross welds under the CF heat shield?
Thanks from Gecko

Yep, but I don't want to get the CF subframe harmed by additional heat

Very nice, at least you can say it's now Ti...lol.

Interesting to see an air scoop on the heat shield. The welded pie cuts on the MotoCorse header look gorgeous!

You need to start a safety wiring thread to showoff all that nice detail!

Your bike it's looking tits man!

You should put the gold heat reflective tape versus the silver stuff for the exhaust heat shield loop. I believe it's little lighter and it would look cool with the Ohlins. I did that with mine per suggestions from a friend. I wish I would've bought the sheet vs the roll though.
Thanks from Gecko

Yeah, bought some rolls and sheets from DEI last month. Do you think it would stick (heat vs adhesives)? The silver reflective material in the MC CF heat shield is some sort of sprayed, it's not a foil....

LOL, i am already feeling very sorry for any guy wanting/needing to take my bike apart. Lots of wire. First I tried Titanium wire, but it's too brittle

OEM on the SL, I guess same as on the R, just another spring (Titanium alloy).
