Two More Teeth

Bikemaster chain superbikecoachYou guys remember my article ‘Motorcycle Sprocket Job: More Power‘? That’s where this one extends it a little.

So finally time has come that I can also ramp up the game on our Ducati Multistrada 1200 Enduro Pro. When it’s time for a new chain- that’s also a good time to make these upgrades, and so I took advantage of it.

“Indy” is going to get 2 more teeth on the rear. Does this bike really need more torque?… oh hell no, but pure acceleration and even better ride-ability can’t hurt. The gears were a touch too far apart in my opinion, so that bigger rear sprocket gets them closer together and that gives me more options in regard gear choice on corners. BikeMaster had all the stuff I needed to get the job done, and quick as usual and their pricing is right!

First you want to loose up all sprocket bolts, before you get the rear wheel out. That makes things easier. Now the wheel comes out and the new BikeMaster sprocket replaces that extremely cheep looking Ducati OEM part. I mean… look at it!

Bikemaster chain superbikecoachNext step is the chain. For that reason you put the wheel back in and cut the old chain. Don’t pull it out though, because you want to connect the new chain to it and to pull it through the swing arm and over and out of the front sprocket housing. That way you can save all the work with it. Now put the wheel/axle in the mid range of your chain spanners, which gives you wiggle room for your chain adjustments later. Ones done, you lay the chain up the sprocket to determine the length and so where to take links out. I recommend to look twice which and where you take it out. Now you close the chain with a lock (comes with the chain) and adjust its slack. Don’t forget to tighten up your rear axle… and you are all done.

You can’t add power and torque in a cheaper way. Do yourself a favor and do it. Thank me later :)

Congrats to our Cornering School Graduates

Congrats to all students to graduate from Cornering School. They finished the program with day 3 last Sunday.

Those guys went from day 1 to day 3 and they’ve learned a ton. I am proud for each one of them and I hope to see them again. With their graduation, they also received a ton:

  • A Superbike-Coach Corp completion certificate to get a discount on their motorcycle insurances
  • 2 Superbike-Coach stickers
  • A permanent 50% off discount code when repeating cornering days
  • Discounts from our sponsors: Carrillo Law Center, Raver Synthetics Amsoil, Moto Gear, GoMotoTrip Motorcycle fairings, and Forma Boots USA
  • They are now qualified to do the Track Academy

That’s quite something huh?! Other than that, all of them made their signatures on the Superbike-Coach class banner, and I appreciate the memory a lot. They truly became members of the SBC family where we remember their names.

Superbikecoach Panigale 1199

GomotoTrip Fairings For Cleopatra

Sometimes a seemingly perfect motorcycle loses its perfection. The reason doesn’t necessarily have to be a crash. Years of track abuse leaving marks on her. Things crack, split or melt. It was time to put some fresh cosmetic on ‘Cleopatra’s’ face again, and I am glad that GomotoTrip not just delivers the actual fairing kit, but also a almost spotless paint job.

Raven Synthetics and Superbike-Coach

On that route I also made some necessary repairs and upgrades. An O-Ring at the starter motor had to be replaced. So the oil change was literally one thing then. Only top notch stuff goes in there. Amsoil full synthetic from Raven Synthetics is the best motor oil you possibly can get.

Also from Amsoil is the radiator coolant. Flushing the entire cooling system was overdue anyway. The Dominator Coolant Boost keeps the temperature 8 Fahrenheit lower then any other option. Who ever rode a Ducati 1199 Panigale knows that ever temperature point down is a good thing.

The brakes needed to be maintained as well. Amsoil DOT4 Synthetic Racing brake fluid is way to go. New race brake pads with an extreme high pitch but linear stopping power has been always my choice. That ain’t cheap pads, and YOU should NEVER go cheap on those as well! Added to the brakes are a set of rotor air ducts and a set of caliper air ducts. That should help keep my brakes a little cooler under aggressive braking.

Then it was time to finally unbox the new fairing kit from GomotoTrip. This is each time quite exciting. I can tell you that the fit, even on a tightly designed bike like the Panigale, is top-notch. Not a single hole needs to be modified. Everything is in the right place. Besides a absolute fantastic paint job, the kit comes with pretty much everything you need and also includes bum-stop, windshield and heat mats.

An entire fairing kit like this cost about $675, and that includes a custom paint job and shipping. I mean look at it… it can’t get any better than that!
