Did you go with the stock eccentric or slotted?Old school riding style notwithstanding that's still a cool pic nonetheless Richard.
Plunked down on a shiny new Metmachex aluminum swingarm today. Waiting in giddy anticipation for it to arrive.
That place looks amazing. I first heard about it (saw it I guess) with the commercial the Celebrity Fisherman did sending a Fireblade around there. I read up on the Top Rider site about the track.Yep - the private country road, 5.1 kM long, 7 metres wide, 22 corners and advisory speed signs on every one.
It is amazing - takes a lot to learn as there are so many corners.That place looks amazing. I first heard about it (saw it I guess) with the commercial the Celebrity Fisherman did sending a Fireblade around there. I read up on the Top Rider site about the track.
Sooooo........ Are you going to share the secret handshake and code word for the month?
As for the style, there are worse things in life than looking like Hailwood.
I was originally looking into getting a slotted style but ended up going with the stock eccentric Dave. When I last checked back in December the price for the stock eccentric was 545GBP. Last week when I checked the price it had gone up,the new and improved price for the stock eccentric is now 595GBP.Did you go with the stock eccentric or slotted?
Aw Crap! I coulda used that info last Friday.When you order make sure you spell out exactly what you want in the way of rivnuts for hugger and brakeline. Somehow that got lost in translation on mine, at least for the brake line clamp.
Yeah I read that too Dave. The Ducati Kamna website states that you have to modify the stock rear hugger to get it to fit properly. They also sell a c/f rear hugger that's supposed to be designed to bolt right on to the Metmachex swingarm. It appears that you have to drill the mounting holes in it though.I didn't have a late stock plastic hugger to try but I think the early hugger needed work to fit I think from memory.
Tax return checks arrived today. Guess what I did with mine.The last coupla times that I rode the bike it was starving for fuel at high speeds. Today I found out why. There was so much rust floating around at the back of my gas tank that the pick-up screen on the fuel pump was clogged.
It's expensive I know but I'm currently thinking about contacting Moto-Works in Japan and inquiring about a Beater aluminum gas tank so that I won't have to deal with this rusting problem ever again.
Info I was able to find says that aluminum fuel tank is approximately 40% lighter than the stock steel one Mike.How much lighter is it?
150,000 yen. Sounds like a lot but that actually calculates out to $1260 US dollars.How much lighter is your wallet?
