That Aprilia carbon is sweet, not sure about the tank pad though?

I take it the air tube covers are not available from Aprilia?

thank you all the guys loving it. The only thing I am struggling about is the stickers RSV4 3D one mounted on the side panels are so easy to come off, may be the glue???!! any suggestions?
by the way, the tank is done by the company called 'carbon dry japan', they make nice stuff.

I think the carbon isn't laqured at all, they won't stick to carbon! I was thinking of getting my carbon matt/satin laquered as apparantly it goes ''yellow'' after a couple of years without UV protection, they would stick to that!

I haven't said "wow" out loud in some time. Definitely need a photographer to do that bike proper justice. Wheels alum or mag?

I got stompgrip to stick to my carbon tank side lowers by using the stompgrip adhesion promoter 45-10001. It comes as two sticks that you break and rub on the area that you want to sticker. I also masked off the area so I would only get the promoter on the parts the sticker would go on so it would not leave a weird haze on the carbon.

You mean it's really plastic with just a CF wrap?

Still looks great. I had this as my desktop background for a while.

Thats due to level of money Victor sees as disposable, not whether its needed or not.

Don't let Padarosa see that.....

That's some proper CF!

Rather than the cost, I'd be more worried about some joker 'quick-disconnecting' them while the bike was parked. Also makes it easy for them to score some nice calipers.

No direct link for it.
But for sure they built the one wt key.
Last years they send me some pics because I was interessted then I personally saw them at the factory.
Ask some pics.
The shape and designe of the plate is the same of model with key but without.

Starlane are very beautifull but more expensive, then they sell the complete kit (uppuer and lower plate) while Flyhammer sell only the upper if you want.

If some one is going to steal your callipers they'll just take a pair of cutters to the brake line:)

Hopefully no one is going to do that!!! Finger crossed!!!
Just changed to STM clutch today, can not tell the differences at the moment cause it is raining heavily out there. Uk weather is kind of sh**t.
Waiting for the dyno after christmas as well....
By the way got some parts for sale if any of you guys interesting, very new
as I got the bike brand new I have changed the parts all the way until now.
All the parts I am selling only cover 46 miles on the dyno running in.
Pm me if any parts you are interesting it.

Why'd you change out the factory slipper clutch, did you have problems with it?

The factory clutch is good, I just took the stm clutch out from my 09 rsv4, and I am also thinking the stm clutch may be is better for launch control as well because its better quality and lighter.:gunner:

Why didnt Victor just get the carbon tank from Aprilia too since he got the other panels from Aprilia? :worship:

Victor, you really need to post links to that stuff. I can't find that tank anywhere I google. Plus, what's with the remote adjuster for your rearshock? I've not seen that setup yet.

And I just spotted the NIX 30mm Ohlins fork drop-ins. Very nice.

You can order a remote preload adjuster through Amauri, as he is an Ohlins dealer.

Oh... They make the tank cover right? I'd have been happy with that. :)
But the custom job looks gorgeous too.

The tank cover is not actually the cover for the tank, its the upper bit, the small square cover that on the top of the airbox.

Yea.. I noticed that.. But the Carbon Aprilia seems to have a carbon tank(not sure tank or tank cover), not just that small part that's listed.. Hmm....

Oh well.. Something I can never afford!!

Thats the same price for a new OEM RSV4 tank and less than half the price of an aluminum one:confused:

There is no link, but my friend has 2 carbon tanks from them, to fit his RSV4.
One is original shape, the other is larger/higher towards the crotch.

It should stay at home, in the living room. Not in the bedroom, too much of a distraction for other activities. :)
