AKDMA Yep, it's gone. We're going to get another SM though.

TLRSKUNK Sounds like you have it sold already. Congrats.

AKDMA We've added lots of new updates and finished the bike up - now it's for sale!

TLRSKUNK Brakes came in today!!! woohoo!! all that is left is white plastics and the triples. Then I get to assemble and lay out graphics.

AKDMA Parts are inbound from overseas now, won't be long at all.

TLRSKUNK I'm getting ancy. 4 weeks wait and my instant need for gratification makes me very twitchy.

I'm riding dirt this weekend though.
04-16-2015 01:40 PM
AKDMA Sweet! You and me both! They should be coming in very soon.

TLRSKUNK I picked up my 2010. I'll post some pics when I put them into Photobucket.
now I just need my brakes....

AKDMA Yes, most road racing orgs require a damper of some sort.

We got a chance to run the bike at a SM track, lots of fun. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pl05E0a2Z30

TLRSKUNK They require a Damper?
04-02-2015 09:56 PM
AKDMA Not a lot of news with the bike (yet). The main focus around here has been preparing our new bikes for racing, so we can get at least one of them out for this month's events. We have some really cool stuff going on the WR shortly. Hopefully we have everything by the 3rd week of this month. For now, we've gotten our Scotts damper installed. This was relatively painless, with only some minor machining required on the top bar clamp so that it'd fit the RSW triples. The bike feels very stable and now will pass tech with race orgs, so hopefully it will be on the grid shortly.

AKDMA No prob! PM sent.
03-24-2015 04:22 PM
TLRSKUNK You are correct. I must have misread the Beringer prices. I've been looking at too much stuff.

Looks like my order from you just got Larger...
Triples. 4 piston Beringer and Brembo 16x18. Can you PM me a quote? I should be ready to buy in the next 2 weeks.

And also a Price on dual temp warmers for the R1. my woodcrafts are getting a little beat up.

AKDMA Looks more expensive than the 4 piston Beringer set up here: GOLDfren Brake Kit for Supermoto Yamaha YZ-F, Suzuki RM-Z, Honda CR-F, Kawasaki KX-F

Is that what you're referring to?

Edit: For the master, the forged Brembo 16x18 is plenty good and reasonably priced. I thought about putting a billet one on ours, but I'll probably hold off.
03-24-2015 01:40 AM
TLRSKUNK I'll shoot you a PM when I'm ready to buy the triples.

I was seriously looking at the Gold Fren set up. Lots of guys are going that way because of the recent Beringer price hike. It's about 500 bucks cheaper than the 4 piston Beringer set up. and in both of those case I'd still need a Master.

AKDMA I can get you the triples. For the caliper setup, we ordered a Beringer setup - Beringer Supermoto Top Race Brake Kit: 6 Piston Caliper, Master Cylinder and Disc - Honda, Suzuki, Yamaha, KTM, Kawasaki, more

They have a less expensive version. Beringer Supermoto Brake Kit: 4 Piston - Honda, Suzuki, Yamaha, KTM, Kawasaki, Husqvarna, Husaberg, Gas Gas

The cheapest option I've seen is going with a radial bracket and putting an Aprilia SXV caliper on there. Sometimes you have to grind material off with the radial calipers. We had a guy actually ruin a caliper by taking too much off for clearance. That's one reason I went for the Beringer setup. That and it's plug and play, 6 pistons.

TLRSKUNK I picked up a 2011 YZ450. What did you end up doing for a caliper set up?

I need a Radial mount bracket if you can source one. I am also looking at a set of 13mm triples.
03-11-2015 03:19 PM
AKDMA Went with titanium. Should have some nice updates soon!
03-10-2015 06:11 PM
AKDMA Looking for some opinions - what color caliper should we go with? Right now we're leaning towards black (top) or titanium (7th from top).
