Pipes and brackets

I made it almost a year with the bike before the temptation of getting the full Akrapovic system was too much to resist. The R comes with stock titanium headers, so the correct part to buy was the R-specific Akrapovic slip-ons, which would then come with the correct upmap. But because I had the RapidBike installed (so didnít need an upmap) and having found a killer deal on a new full DP Akra system from Australia, I pulled the trigger on that instead.

While waiting for that to come in, I was sold on a billet rear brake bracket from IMM in Germany (link here). This is one of the inexplicable ĎWhy am I doing thisí mods. It looks amazing and the workmanship is top notch, but once installed, no one was going to see it. Iíll know though











Thanks from Twistedracer, 998sp and henrypbui

Yeah Marcel over at IMM makes nice stuff I have been running one for a while with a rear billet caliper and rear BrakeTech floating rotor.

Its a nice looking bit of billet. Is there any weight saving to be had from it?

I didn't notice any difference in weight I had a modified oem one before that I had shaved tiny bit of weight but nothing to get worked up about. If anything the oem one being cast is actually stronger. I was going to run off some carbon ones at one point but they would have had to be much thicker framed to hold up so I ended up not going through with the tooling.

The Translogic one is crisp and solid feeling. This shifter feels mechanically solid (no moving parts inside the unit) and you can be more precise with it (e.g. short shifting is quicker, you find N quicker). Worth every single dollar.
Thanks Vyruz! And Mick. I truly loath the stock quickshifter on the track and am looking for the best upgrade for next season.

New FKR Cartridges

The OEM Ohlins fork on the R is obviously a great unit, but from my experience with the FGRT forks on the 899, the R unit never felt as plush. With the previous fork seal leaks, I thought I'd get rid of the stock system and give Ohlins' new offering a go - specifically the FKR cartridge kit . It is a TTX unit but is a spring-pressurised system that is meant to be easier from a maintenance standpoint compared to the old gas-pressurised TTX system.

Since the forks were getting disassembled, it was time to update the travel indicator with a proper Ohlins unit. I wanted the white indicator with the green O-ring like I had on the FGRT forks, so an order was placed with the Ohlins dealer that got me the FKR inserts (part numbers 01565-04 (stroke indicator) and 00338-54 (green o-ring)).

There isn't a real perceptible difference for street riding (though if I had to say something, I'd say the initial fork travel felt smoother, but this could be just the refreshed oil in the forks), but a trackday will be coming up and it'll be interesting to see how it feels there.
