Are you going to get a black tank cover? I reckon it will look a lot better than red.
Even though you know it's going to happen, it's still unpleasant to see someone go down like that.

Personally, I feel the bike wants to run a little wide all the time. It's either me or there's a better setting for me and the bike together. I take it there wasn't too much damage if you carried on? What group were you in? You were about 5 seconds faster a lap than me at rockingham watching that.

As for the tank, I'll either wrap it in brushed aluminium or source a spare tank to strip. As with all the mods, I want to make sure I can go back to oem if I choose so I buy spares to hack apart if needed. Apart from the CNC triples, everything else is fully reversible.

It was quite some time back and I'm a fair bit faster now but it was fast group. The damage was just to the panels and I gaffer taped it up

Minor update.

I've spoken to a company that can powder coat the tail tidy once complete (hopefully this week!) and have been collecting a few other pieces to be changed from silver to black at the same time.

The tail pad is made and in the post from Poland so again, hopefully with me this week! I was sent a sneak preview of it:

Funny you mention

A small package arrived:

20171027_094300 by Matt Bly, on Flickr

Carbott included a Dzus fastener but didn't drill or add anything as this was dependant on my own fitment requirements. I decided to go with more Dzus fasteners to save it being like death by bolts so set about positioning the plate and seat pad. The rear hole required a small adjustment towards the rear but it was only minor. Dzus recepticles were then positioned and tested before the holes were drilled.

20171108_195652 by Matt Bly, on Flickr

In the image above, you can also see that I drilled the holes for the lights to mount on. I also trimmed the front legs of the seat pad as they weren't required. I still need to do some more trimming to allow the air duct pieces to fit in better. A fifth dzus fastener was added on the underside of the top section to allow the tail sections to fasten together at the top.

20171108_195657 by Matt Bly, on Flickr

All fastened up (minus the air scoops):

20171108_194304 by Matt Bly, on Flickr

From the rear - the lights work and are pretty secure despite no direct fastening at the moment. I may source a spare set and modify them in the future though.

20171108_194253 by Matt Bly, on Flickr

After sorting this, I set about modifying the side fairings to fit - I don't have any pictures at the mo but will take some soon. The next part will be the final trimming of the seat pad before I do a full test fit of the entire bodywork prior to sending it off for re-finishing.

I've also been collecting a few other spares ready for powdercoating!

Thanks for reading!

I'm sure there will be in time but first priority is getting the panels etc sorted.

Small update:

If you remember - this was my riginal design for the new tail tidy I required as the original mounting / bolt holes are now covered by the carbon tail.

20170909_142122 by Matt Bly, on Flickr

It wasn't bringing the plate back far enough to clear the wheel with my 1 inch smaller plate, never mind the one for the MOT. (as below)

20170907_202434 by Matt Bly, on Flickr

I set about re-designing the bracket to follow the contour of the tail and extend out:

20170924_163138 by Matt Bly, on Flickr

After a further thick card mock up, I took the template to a local metal fabricating shop and they agreed to cut and weld up my bracket from 3mm aluminium. I picked it up today and here is the end result. They weren't happy with the first one so made a second. From left to right above: Final version, First attempt, card template, thick card template

20171122_170148 by Matt Bly, on Flickr

Looks like the first version had a few issues with the enclosed section.

20171122_170230 by Matt Bly, on Flickr

20171122_170224 by Matt Bly, on Flickr

The better version with the plate section and light bolted in:

20171122_170216 by Matt Bly, on Flickr

20171122_170205 by Matt Bly, on Flickr

Bolted on:

20171122_171254 by Matt Bly, on Flickr

I think I'll find some nicer bolts for the front but the rears are fine. I used small nylon spacers for the rear bolts.

Rear view:

20171122_171326 by Matt Bly, on Flickr

20171122_171338 by Matt Bly, on Flickr

Normal size plate fitted - much more clearance:

20171122_171627 by Matt Bly, on Flickr

Slightly smaller plate - 1 inch all round

20171122_171434 by Matt Bly, on Flickr

How it'll sit:
20171122_171424 by Matt Bly, on Flickr

The angle of the plate is just about acceptable and should hopefully be fine come MOT time (which has run out so it better be!). Next is to get the tail tidy and parts above powder coated in black before final fixing the body panels and then turning my attention to the tank.

Speaking of the tank, I may have some news on that front but I won't know for another few days!

Thanks for reading.

Look what arrived in the post! Just need to get it stripped of paint and set to with the scotch pads...

I've also acquired a corse style carbon fibre short rear hugger and a carbon clutch cover. The hugger is from carbonworld.de as per the link below. The clutch cover is a CDT / Fullsix version of the corse / DP item that is shown on the 1199 RS below.

Hugger:

I've also ordered some carbon tank protectors that mimic the RS style as well as the fluid reservoir holders - both from Carbott Composites who supplied the seat pad and bracket. Pics below:

My tank will be finished very similar:

They will look similar to the ones on the bike below:

I also acquired a Ducati Performance carbon shock cover:
