Class B Bike for sale: 2nd in Championship
My Class B bike is for sale. Ill leave this advert on here and Ducatisti until Thursday, but then it will be going on eBay for a 10day auction. So get in quick before the bidding frenzy ;) I am looking for the closest offer to £1,900.
The bike has a very good pedigree in the series, finishing 3rd in 2007, then helping me to 7th in 2010 (my first season racing), before finishing 2nd this year. It should really have won this year, but I am somewhat impetuous and crashed from a 20second lead in the last race (but we dont talk about that!).
It was extensively rebuilt with no expense spared at the beginning of 2011 by DWR. If you want to see how extensively, check out some pictures here: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?s...1 6bca&type=1
It has won 4 races this year, helped me to 5 pole positions, and is one of only 3 Class B bikes to set a new course record this year in Class B. Some pictures of it setting the new Class B lap Record at Anglesey (my first visit to the track) can be found here: http://rage-graphics.com/gallery2/v/...glesey+_HMRC_/
The full spec is listed below, but the important thing to note is that the only differences between the bike I am selling and the one that set the Anglesey lap record are that it now has my older Black Wheels (with Brembo discs) and a plactic rather than Carbon mudguard. So you could literally take this bike as it is, set lap records, win races, and win a Championship.
Full engine rebuild including new pistons and barrels at beginning of 2011
IRC master cylinders/levers (a little bent, but these alone are £200 each)
Wilbers rear shock set for 85kg
Wilbers linear rate fork springs, with forks set up by KAIS
Ducati Performance igniter boxes
One-off exhaust into underseat MHP Carbon silencer
Bespoke oil cooler
Scitsu rev counter
851 Alloy swingarm (very rare)
Brembo calipers all round with Brembo front disks
SES clipons and crash bungs
New rearsets and Renthal grips just fitted.
Damaged/repaired ZX10R seat and 1098 fairing (see attached pictures taken yesterday, they are still quite presentable)
Selection of lihghtweight sprockets
I have probably forgotten a ton of other things, so if you have any questions, pm me.
The bike in this spec is around 169kg and has been tested straight after 3 races with 48bhp. I can honestly say the only thing I think would do to make this a better bike is a different exhaust header set-up (something by JAC for £200 should see it back up around the 51bhp it had before the exhaust change but I decided to give the others a chance!) and change the electric pump back to the vacuum pump. It had new pads an oil change and new valve collets last month to make sure it was good for the final 2 rounds.. If I were racing it again I would get the belts changed, but other than that it is good to go.
Enjoy it, I did!

Not an old guy from the wirrel called alex is it...as I wouldn't hold ur bresth if it is!
So what's next ;)
I suggest you buy a 996 and come with me next year to do some of the Hottrax golden era rounds.
Interesting suggestion this! Had a good meetig with Hottrax on Tuesday about 2012 and should be in a position to provide more information on this subject in about a week or so - the future looks bright, the future may well be red!
Thundersport Golden Era for me, as long as it doint clash with DD rounds
