What?


I endurance race Ducatis. That's 3500 km in one go. I'm not going to oil change the bike during the race.
1500 km is also roughly a full weekend of racing, with free practice, qualifying, warm-up and two races when we're in sprint mode. If modern oil doesn't stand up to 1500 km, then there is a major problem with the oil.

Le Mans, this year. First DNF after 14 hours of leading the Supertwin category. Bugger. Not oil related. I also found the brown tabs in this engine once I'd stripped it. Not too happy about that.

I Ride: 1199S
Would you disclose what the reason for the DNF was? I am just curious.

BTW: When I did the oil change at the beginning of this season, some plastic bits still came... And there have been numerous oil changes on my 2012 1199S...

I'm still looking for the reason the rod shells gave up the ghost. The oil pump shaft sometimes snaps, but ours was perfect. I'm testing the fuel and oil, because we're forced to run fuel supplied by the circuit, and I wonder if I wasn't getting some detonation which hammered the rod bearings.
One of my 1199's with 15,000 race km on it and no strip-down...yet...still coughs up plastic bits despite having the bellypan removed every oil change for inspection and cleaning of the strainer. Very annoying.

Plastic pieces found in oil

1299 first service and tech going ceramic timing gear teeth in the sump

Run in as supposed to and no evidence while riding the bike. Needless to say warranty fix involved a strip , all new timing sprockets and endoscopy of the rest of the engine to ensure no other damage. Dealer were flawless in sorting.

WSBK run metal gears instead of plastic, do they sell them to the public?

Here is a picture of my 1299 with the clutch cover removed. How were you able to see any gears in this scenario let alone differentiate the material?

Ok Halo2, Im just giving you a bad time. The correct answer is, yes. The Corse pump pieces are steel. I have a few sets of them along with the pump. Here is a pic of the stock gears and a pic of the Corse gears. If you really want a set, PM me.
