He is back

Well I must admit I thought we had seen the last of him after his tirades a year or two ago. If I remember at that time he told us all he could build a better bike than the 1299 SL. The expert is back to educate us all. He really lost it last time and had to resort to telling how many "likes" he had compared to other people. Not a fan. Not impressed.

Oh Brad, what is your issue little man? Is this all you have to contribute? Im not here to impress you and I certainly don't need some jerk off like you as a fan. I build what i build and there are many here that can back up what I put down and for your information, the SL version that I built is still going strong at over 15K miles. The factory 1299 SL that started the tirade has since had 2 blown motors under 6K miles. The owner of it is on this board if you want to chat with him so go F yourself.

And it's not how many likes, I have compared to other people you ass hat. Likes to post ratios tend to dictate the relevance of what you have to say but you know what Brad, I think really when guys post here that actually have something interesting to say and some relevant technical points and are helpful with real information, little people like yourself tend to feel left out and i know you need to feel significant so on that note, I will again stop posting and you can have your happy place back Brad.

I find it funny how he is trying to justify why the wings are a gimmick. Usually the actions of folks that want the new model but for whatever reason cant afford it so the pick it apart to make themselves feel better for not having it lol
Thanks from Danger Close MFG

Can't afford? Do some research before sticking your foot in your mouth.

Not sure what happened to piss off Brad but here is my PM session with him. He claims he is not a fan. You couldn't tell by the PM exchange.


Hello Endodoc,
I saw you post on the CF tail. If you do not mind and have the time would you mind weighing the difference between OEM and your new piece.

I have been looking at his stuff for a while. I have a 2012 1199S and have been doing as much as I can to lighten it.

I do not have the skills to do engine mods so concentrate on the running gear with Ti bolts, 520 chain, and full Akra system. I just enjoy playing with my bike in the workshop. I have kept a spreadsheet for all my weight savings.

I am to get some gold, magnesium wheels from marches ini

I like the look of the CF air box too
cheers Brad

Since i started from scratch I needed a body anyhow so I just went with CF. The tail was to reduce heat which is did nicely. I try and remove functional weight without sacrificing reliability. I made a Ti steer tube for my CNC triple. I made a Ti clutch slave rod. I had my friend at Northrop make a Ti rear drive axle out of a solid 20lb Ti billet blank. That saved a lot of weight and it was sprung weight.

Hi
Thank you for the detailed reply. I wish I had the skills to do that kind of thing. I may try and learn one day when I retire. I think the Ti axles are a great idea.

I do some flying too but only have 500 hours. Looking forward to retirement from the military do have more time to ride and play in the workshop. I may have one more trip to the middle east though before that. I do enjoy reading your posts as you have some real great tech knowledge which comes from doing not guessing. I only ever post about stuff I have done myself so I know if it is true or not.

There is so many self professed experts on the forum who have never turned a spanner.

thanks for the info.

Brad

well, i'm an expert when it comes to entertainment and this is pretty entertaining. however, i don't think it helps the forum much, so i might actually nuke it.

Most of endodocs posts are nothing but inflammatory. Brad contributes valuable information.

Hhmm,

I think that this banter does not really reflect the real misery of this forum.

Images deleted, silly restrictions for uploads, missing threads, and so on.

If this shit is not going to be fixed, this forum is going to die.
