1199 rebuild project

Hello, everyone!
Was reading the forum for quite some time, decided to post my rebuild project.

Right now the main task is to make the carbon frame, so working on the little things to loose as much weight as possible.

Stock dampers VS AEM Factory titanium


With stock nuts VS titanium


Stock VS NCR


Stock VS Titanium


Stock VS aluminium carrier with 520 aluminium 41 tooth sprocket


Complete setup gives a weight reduction of 989 grams
Thanks from Styler, Claymore, Marmoot and 3 others

I have been doing the same and have a bit of a fetish for trying to lighten my bike.

I ended up getting the polyurethane cush drives from sprocket centre. I could not compare their weight directly against OEM as they come already pressed into the sprocket carrier.

The poly urethane ones would actually weigh a little less as they do not have the ti ring around the polyurethane.

But those who want the lightweight without the extra cost of the ti cush drives you can save some money.

I was also keen on the Ti hub cover. I always lusted after one after Trauma got one. But the cost at about 1000 USD was just too much. I keep a spreadsheet comparing OEM to what I replace with or just remove.

The CNC hub cover is not quite as light as the NCR Ti one. NCR Ti = 278 grams vs CNC Alloy = 308 grams. Difference 30 grams. Don't get me wrong if I could afford it I would go the Ti one everyday. Just could not afford it. BTW the CNC hub cover is 119 Euro vs 790 Euro for their Ti one. I bought the Ti colour so I could lie to myself.

As a side not I saved 101 grams removing the two O2 sensor plugs and wires from the exhaust system. Mr Akra kindly supplies Ti bolts and washers to cap these.

Great to see Gecko and I are not the only ones with electronic scales trying to reduce weight gram by gram.
Thanks from Gecko

The NCR cover is aluminium, I also believe that 790 euros is way too much for that Ti part.

Made these custom design Ti lambda plugs for the RS13 Termi exhaust


The plan for the brake/clutch lines with dry break staubli connectors.

I've decided to go with Fren Tubo carobotech.

The Robby Moto lower triple has a cutout at the bottom, which I decided to use to bolt on the custom splitter for front brake lines, which will make the lines going to calipers equal length and act as a radiator.


Thanks from Gecko

And that really sums up the entire effort, whatever one replaces. Awesome bike porn, regardless.

Well, actually it might be more grams per euro, since they are rotating unsprung mass and each gram of rotating unsprung mass equates to more than a gram, although they are pretty close to the centre line.
And one euro per gram is actually very good
