Help for DesmoDue Newbies

As sure a few of you are aware it can be difficult to know where to go to find up grades and just general race kit for the desmodue race bikes.

I am starting this thread to pool together information that we have with the intention of creating a stick post (or adding to my stick want to be a dd racer?) with aproval from MT if this is with in the advertising rules
with list of companys and where to find help when building a race bike and finding spares.

Example

http://www.ricambiweiss.de/ For race fairings

http://www.hcracetech.co.uk/ Also race fairings - Matt T sponser

http://stores.ebay.co.uk/Race-Supplies-Direct For rear sets and clip ons (what size do you need?)

Race exhaust system by MHP

http://www.racinglines.co.uk/ For race suspension work



That type of Idea

I would also highly recommend Maxton Suspension not just for new units but for refurb'ing forks and rear shocks.

New springs to suit rider/bike damping mods, full services and bushes etc..

First class @ http://www.maxton.netspinners.co.uk

They are always very busy so email....don't depend on the phone calls being return quickly

Dom,
Rather than have many individual posts on one thread, can they all be put into one list???

A few to add to that list would be.


http://www.jacexhausts.co.uk/index.html

They did the exhaust system on Matt's bike.



http://www.ultimate-finish.co.uk/

Did Matt's frame and a frame for Skid's.


http://www.carrotcycles.co.uk/

Converted 748/916 throttle and cable to be used on a 583.

(do not forget to use a smaller spacer above the springs to give you the correct static sag, as the 748 springs are longer than the standard Showa's.)

Will give a more detailed suspension settings over the weekend ( if thats ok with skids )

Spring rate will depend partly on your weight with riding gearing on.
I go to Race Parts for my springs as I get a good deal but have to wait for them to order in as they only stock balanced pairs for the car racers. Otherwise try K-tech or JHP

Btw... I have made a simple but affective ride height adjuster to
use with the ie shock. (I'll post up a pic when it's fitted)
I did plan on buying a new shock but this credit C has hit work hard
so i'll make best use of what i have for next year!

Will the shock supplier need to know the bike weight etc?
Sorry if i appear dumb..lol

Fork springs want to be around 0.9kg/mm

http://www.ricambiweiss.de/ For race fairings


Hi, quick question; how does the ricambi German stuff compare quality wise to UK bodywork?

It's noticibly cheaper e.g. a 1098 race fairing is around 100 cheaper than the equivalent fairing from Replicast

Is there a 100 difference in quality?


Cheers

Ricambi Weiss stuff is good, and probably better than a lot of other make fibreglass that I've bought in the UK.
Just watch when buying off ebay as they won't (or didn't!) combine the postage cost, even though it turns up all in one box! So I bought a left-hand side (€20 postage), a right-hand side (€20 postage), a front piece (€10 postage) and a seat unit (€15 postage) so ended up paying them €65 in postage costs!

Cheers, even with the postage thier SS DR107 seat and 1098 fairing work out pretty cheap in comparison to the UK stuff.
