I'm looking for good overall power and modulation, but smooth initial bite and release. I'm trying to find something with plenty of power, but easy to trail brake with.

Thanks! I like it also. I was going to install some Woodcraft cut-type frame sliders that are really trick, already ordered them, but looks like I'll pursue other options.

Updated the Spiegler lines front and rear to red with black fittings, to tie the theme together a bit. Also finally got in my Dymag CA5 carbon fiber wheels.











These things are awesome. Put them on the scale, they dropped right at 10lbs over the stockers. Amazing.

Nice! What does the scale say for curb weight?

Thanks guys! Unfortunately, it's only capable of weighing up to 50kg. I'll put the bike back on the 1% scale used earlier at some point. It should be around 400-410lbs. back then it was 449 with stock wheels and street bodywork, along with a half stainless exhaust.

It's definitely got a lot of grunt!

Some new updates! Got in some CF air tubes for better aesthetics, strength and reduced weight. At the same time, we also installed the prototype Lacomoto carbon fairing stay, a project we've been working on for a while. Awesome piece, dropped close to a pound from the original unit (which is already magnesium).

Some new updates.

We installed a new YA-340 Ohlins TTX GP Shock We also equipped the shock with one of Graves' lightweight race springs.





We also got our latest batch of Superbike-Spec linkages in, so we installed a black unit on at the same time.

I've got a few bits and pieces on the way to lighten the bike up a bit. We're about to do one more test session for some new ECU stuff and finishing up suspension setup before doing a few back to back race weekends. I'm really excited to see how this bike performs this year.

Hey guys,

We're toying with the idea of switching triples to mag units or some other units we've been eying. First, I thought I'd see if there's any interest in the units we have now. These retail for $920 and they are actually no longer available, being replaced with newer units that are about $100 more per set. The steering stem has an OEM Yamaha race and bearing set pressed on, with perhaps 300 miles on them.

These come with inserts to achieve 24mm, 25mm and 26mm offset.

Here are some photos of them. We'd probably want around $700 for them if we sell the set.
