F3 Build

I work at a shop in the US (www.sdsperformance.com) and we are currently building an F3 for a customer. Thought I would share the fun here. Questions and comments are welcome!

Here it is after returning from Dyno break-in.




Speedymoto (www.speedymoto.com) made frame and axle sliders. Case covers by GB Racing. An interesting alternative to billet covers, GB uses injection molded nylon and are much lighter that billet pieces. Those of you in the UK are probably more familiar with GB Racing products, but in the US the company is not very well known yet. Has anyone had the misfortune of actually using these? I'm curious to know how well they hold up.



Aluminum fairing stay from designcorse.co.uk. Pretty rough finish compared to similar products from Motoholders, but it fits well.



Clutch cover by GB Racing





Rear sets, also from designcorse.co.uk They are not joking when they say the race spec finish will have some machining marks. Rough finish indeed! I was pulling slivers of aluminum from my fingers after installing these. Currently Evol Tech (www.evoltechnology.com) is prototyping rear sets for the F3, very excited to see the fiished product as Evol Tech's products are truly works of art.



Apologies for the poor quality of some of these photos. Took a little head scratching, but we did manage to get the rear sets set up for GP shift without having to scrap the quick shifter.



Speedymoto clip-on's. Their design necessitated relocating the key cylinder.



Nice little gas cap by TWM. Blingin' !



Radiator and Oil cooler have been sent to Cox to have guards made for them (www.coxracingroup.com) and a Zard full race system is in the mail, as well as some body work. I will try to add pictures and info as parts arrive and the bike takes shape.

How did you manage to keep the quickshifter?

When I put my aftermarket rearsets on, I had to dump it. Tired flipping over - that didn't work either. Going from street shift ("pull" action on the quickshifter) to GP (push action) the stock sensor no longer worked.

What did you do?

Corran. Please read my reply to your F3 Track Day thread.
Notice the orientation of the quick shifter in the different photos.

Ya, for the quick shifter it was simply a matter of where the rod was attached in relation to the pivot point on the shifty pedal. On the designcorse rear sets you can bolt the shift rod in front of or behind the pivot point on the shift lever. If it is attached in front of the pivot point it will "push" and if it is attached behind the pivot point it will "pull". The quickshifter switch is a 'pull only type'. The important thing is finding rear sets that have two mounting points, one if front and one behind the pivot point.

We got the Zard system from a Canadian supplier, though the transaction was facilitated by the parts department at motocorsa in Portland (www.motocorsa.com). They have a stainless steel and titanium system. Cost is about 1700-2400 USD respectively. As far as i know they are one of the few companies that have released a full system that eliminates both the headers and cat. Apparently Zard are pretty loud. Perfect!

Any chance of getting a sound clip of the Zard when it gets installed? How are you guys going to tune the bike? The header ECU from MV?

Beauwulf, not sure yet what the owner wants to do for electronics or to the engine itself. Working through the ECU would be ideal but we don't have much support (at all) from MV in the US right now, so that might be difficult. ECU Unleashed has some pretty basic options on offer now, but we would prefer to tune in-house. A Bazzaz unit could resolve fueling issues with the Zard system, but Bazzaz doesnt seem to support the MV product line as far as I can tell, thats not to say one couldn't be made to work. Replacing the entire system with a MoTeC or Microtech unit is also on the table and these are probably the best options available right now. About the zard chip, im not sure, we'll see when the parts arrive.
