Like Ed mentioned my AEM carrier did not have any kind of a spacer either so definitely strange with that wear issue.

The only way that carrier can back its way into the hub is if the washer was not installed, thats what it is there for.
Thanks Ed. I appreciate the detailed analysis.

Thankfully I had no damage from the fluids sitting on there long. I cleaned it up as soon as I rolled into the pits. I'm not sure if it helped, but I had the SpeedoAngels screen protector on as well.

I purchased a genuine SL OEM Radiator cap. I posted pics I think at the time.
Looks nicer and you will save 10.4 grams.
Mate I saved your post about that a long time ago. I didn't pull the trigger because I wasn't sure if it'd fit the MAC radiator

I didn't get back to AEM and I'm glad I didn't. Judging by Ed's comments, it looks like it was an installation error rather than a manufacturing one. It was installed at the dealership at the early days of getting the bike, and I wonder if they rushed it. My bike goes to another workshop now and they do great work.

Good call on that one. I have seen this a few times from shops as they are not familiar with the components of the rear drive assemble. Simply, when they remove the OEM junk for the swap they unbolt the carrier and slide the assembly of the axle. The thick assembly grease causes the washer to stick to the sprocket. They pull the flange out of the center and the washer stays behind on the old sprocket. The new sprocket assembly goes back on without the washer. Fortunately, the chain geometry kept that thing somewhat contained. That could have been ugly at speed. Attention to detail my friends. If you are going to F with, minimize the possibility that it Fs you back.

Another trackday

This was the first trackday after some of the larger mods to date - including the M9RS magnesium wheels, the full Akra system and the Ohlins FKR cartridges - so there was lots to be excited about.

It's hard to nail down which part was the best - the FKR cartridges gave me a lot of confidence braking deeper into the corner. Some might say this is the placebo effect talking or just down to fresh fork oil, but I'm not so sure. There is definitely more feeling from the front when you're on the brakes and tipping in that gives you the confidence to trail it more than before.

The Akra and M9RS wheels combo made the bike noticeably stronger from corner exit all the way down both long straights in Sepang. These mods were definitely not needed, but they have made a light bike even lighter and peppier.

All that was great about the Pani R for me - the pull down the two straights followed by braking and corner entry - are better than before. I am still weak on corner exit - I envy the inline fours and their smooth linear band here. There is still a brutality to the R's power and it doles out thrills and fear in equal amounts coming out of slow-ish corners.

One of my favourite things to do is clean the bike down after a trackday and get a small photoshoot thing going. It's my way of telling my bike 'Thanks for looking after me'.

As is now tradition, she gets a little present as a reward for good trackday behaviour. This time it's a small bit of carbon but it is a little functional too. I went with the MotoCoach brake cooling airduct. I just read the recent thread about brake cooling ducts, so I'm not going to say too much about this Suffice to say the brake lever was moving back enough in one 20-minute session that I thought it is worth a try. This version is a simple fit (secured by the caliper bolts) and does not obstruct front paddock stands.

EVR Billet Clutch Basket

With the EVR slipper clutch working well, I thought it would be nice to complete the set with the EVR billet clutch basket. Bellissimoto certainly pitched it right in their description below (with me falling in the average joe category):
"The Average Joe may not need this (though he'd still like to have it!), but you racers around the country and the world know the value of having a Race hub that's been: Lightened, strengthened, highly engineered, and highly tuned for optimum performance on the track, and the basket is made from one solid piece of billet and that's why we sell a surprisingly good number of them.

Ducati Corse found that on their race bikes, the OE clutch baskets were failing after about 150 km. Enter EVR's Basket which has gone more than 1500 km in their bikes with no problems!"
