Year:2007
Model:1098
Eng size:1098
Pipes:Akroprovic
Seat:Custom
Wheels:BST Carbon Fiber wheels
Accessories:LightTech Engine bolt kit, fairing bolt kit, frame bolt kit, folding rear sets with carbon heel guards, steering stem head nut, rear axle nut, titanium rotor bolts. FGR800 WSBK forks, custom triple tree, custom titanium front axle, EVR carbon fiber airbox, full carbon fiber bodywork, carbon fiber fuel tank, carbon fiber throttle body bracket, TTX rear shock, and lots more.

And the story:This bike was originally bought by the company to showcase a few of the parts we carry. Shortly after we got the bike we realized that this was impossible and the bike was taken apart to go through a complete transformation.
It was sent to Europe to have bodywork made for the bike. Awaiting it when it got back was full ohlins suspension and loads of aftermarket goodies. In total this bike took about 8 months to complete and it was a lot of fun to do.
Now it is not everyone taste as many feel its "over the top" but isn't that what superbikes are about?

Love the bike ..Hate the discs
May I ask why?


" The patented AXIS/CMC™ by BrakeTech USA is the latest in ultra-advanced Ceramic Matrix Composite brake rotor technology for the Motorcycle Industry. Over ten years in development, the AXIS/CMC incorporates now de-classified Stealth Bomber Aircraft technology that takes high performance in an incredibly lightweight material design to an all-new level. This revolutionary material will change the way both top-level race teams and enthusiasts alike view their braking systems. The performance parameters in-total make all previous materials and systems dated by comparison, including the vaunted Carbon/carbon brakes. Designed to perform brilliantly with OE calipers as well as the Billet GP race-spec units. This unparalleled composite material offers the best features of premium iron rotors with the incredible lightweight of carbon, and none of the Carbon/carbon foibles!

Performance features include:

* Not thermally sensitive (will work great on the street)
* Ultra broad torque curve across a very wide thermal range
* Much longer lasting than C/c
* Much less expensive than C/c
* Great wet weather performance - unlike C/c [not hygroscopic]
* Terrific feel and feedback at the lever
* Strong braking performance? We mean, Really strong: +.6 mu average friction with special Ferodo Racing brake pads

Comparative Brake Weight Stats (CBR1000rr, `04-05):

* Honda OE 310mm stainless: 3lbs 4.4oz at 5mm thick [1486grams]
* BrakeTech 310mm Iron: 2lbs 15.0oz at 5mm thick [1332grams]
* BrakeTech 310mm CMC: 1lb 5.6oz at 5mm thick [612grams]

Comparative Brake Weight Stats for 6mm thick Narrow-Band Superbike:

* BrakeTech SBK 320mm CMC: 1lb 8.7oz at 6.0mm thick [700grams]
* Brembo SBK 320mm Steel: 3lbs 11.4oz at 6.0mm thick [1684grams]

When considering the purchase of this advanced technology brake system, bear in mind, it's not simply a braking improvement, but a whopping 65% reduction [average] of unsprung weight as well. That equates to a genuinely substantial handling improvement with the investment and creates a whole new avenue to reduce the moment of inertia steering input and improving overall handling with chassis-reactive dynamics that simply must be experienced - the reduction in gyroscopic forces is nothing short of amazing!!!

Hot or cold, wet or dry, the AXIS/CMC™ full-floaters establish a new dimension in braking and handling performance without peer! "

I personally prefer the look of the Brembo rotors better but performance wise the CMC's cant be beat.
Even the carrier design is more efficient than the button floater design of the Brembos.

Completely off topic, but I just put on CF air runner covers on the 999 that I got from OPP and just like they said, they are flawless.

They look awesome.

I've seen this bike in person and was absolutely gobsmacked!! I was overcome with a moto lust so powerful it verged on the sexual/criminal/insane. T'was a good thing there were so many people about otherwise I may have done something foolish that I would have regretted later. Anyways, my compliments on a very desirable machine.

very nice.

do those rearsets come in any different colors? Also is there a folding brake/shifter version?
The rearsets are only available in the black color. They do not have an option for folding toe pieces but I will suggest this as I have had a few inquiries.

Thanks for the compliments.
The rearsets are made by LighTech in Italy. The heel guards were custom cut by us here at the shop for a custom look.

Nice bike. Is that a remote adjuster for the front brake?

Oh, you should take the price tag (bar code sticker) off the caliper.

Those calipers were use for display only as we were not able to get our Brembo shipment in before that show. The bike was designed to run with the Brembo Nickle-Cadium HP's. That is why you still see the Brembo bar-code on those calipers.

Nice CMC rotor. It looks great.

Is that CMC rotor same spec as the one you listed for 1098 OBTCD300-001 or they are special spec for the FGR800 fork?
Hi there mildseven7,

The CMC's are the same ones for the Ducati 1098. The rotors are the same as the wheels are originally for the Ducati 1098.
To run this setup we needed to use a special titanium axle to bring it all together but it works amazing.

Wow very cool bike. I'll bet those brakes are worth as much as my whole bike maybe more.
