Agree entirely about the lack of promotion, I could have kicked myself after I bought a set of (slightly) adjustable pegs from them which are actually superb quality, they had a special on full rear sets for £100 quid more, I only came across them by chance hidden away in the bowels of their website, it's quite untidy and disjointed, and went hand in hand with the service I got from them (an example of which is sending my email back to tell me I was to send to [email protected] !) you know..rather than send it to [email protected] to deal with... fucking idiot.. scuse the language... probably way easier using a reseller.
Maybe Valtermoto heard us, they are having a 20% off sale until 31st Dec. So tempted with the rearsets for the F3 but spent so much this month already and also need to purchase ECU studio. Why do they do this?...lol

Seen your post, thanks. Most EU companies will be thinking twice about mailing to the UK just now till all the sh#t dies down after 1st January

Their rearsets are €560 which even with 20% off is still quite heavy.

Accossato gear is decent, I'm after rearsets but don't want to blow £450.00 on a set.


These will do fine if they ship to UK

Added another couple of items, MV Corse brake levers guard and WRS race screen which is 5cm higher than stock.
Said before I am not a fan of the double bubble or Puig style screes, think race screens look more aggressive. Anyway, seems nicely made, easy to fit.
Sorry for the picture quality, bikes all wrapped up as its monsoon season.

If anyone wonders what that horrible grey thing is on my triple clamp, its what they use for toll payments, car parking payments here in Singapore. Should be wrapped in black soon. Unfortunately you are not supposed to take them off and rumour is the new ones coming in the next few years will allow them to track your speed.....hmmmmmm

Jhollis..., can I ask what rear indicators you have, I reckon those are next on the cards for me after I buy rear sets.


Thanks

Ideal mate, can I be a pest and ask some further questions.
1. How did you splice in.
2. Did you need to use the resistors.
3. What additional parts are required.

Damn this Brexit..check this they've set a minimum spend limit .. wtf !



Cheers

Not related but Z04 pads have improved the braking no end.....incase you are interested. I will also change the discs for supersport soon.

I'd buy ZO4s if I was tracking but probably not this year... I'll get her out on the road 1st and see where I'm at.. I've not turned a wheel on the bike despite owning it for 8 weeks !

Eventually the Termi headers have arrived, only took 6 weeks but then thats Italian post for you.
ECU Studio also ready to be flashed onto the ECU.
Will upload a video of before and after the headers install, interested to see how much extra noise we can get out of her with the stock end can.

Are the headers titanium or stainless? are they lighter than the stock? I've been thinking about getting rid of the exhaust valve with new headers, only ones I've found are termi's or zard. i would think both had great build quality.

These are the stainless version, they do have Ti as I am sure you are aware. They should be lighter than stock as the catalytic converter is in the headers hence why I am changing.

When Termignoni say that it only works with race fairings, there must be a reason....

So the Termi headers touch the fairing at the bottom, 'as it says on the tin' it seems, not worth risking it and damaging the fairings so luckily my race F3 (which is sat idle) has MV Corse Titanium headers which join the 3 outlets into 1 much further up, so won't touch the fairing.
All is not lost.

This F3RC will get race fairings eventually when the track opens but that is a distant team at the moment as we continue to tighten travel between Singapore and Malaysia.

So ECU Studio flash done, blipper now enabled. The throttle is much more responsive than before, revs up quicker which is easier to ride as it felt gutless as stock, whether this be the new map or the headers or both.
With the new headers (but still stock 'slip on') at idle the bike sounds pretty much the same but under acceleration it sounds much more 'raspy', it also backfires/pops and bands a little when coming off the revs. Feels lighter too which into be expected as now Ti headers and no cat.
Also fitted some R&G tank grips.

So mate, I ended up swapping the Ti headers from my race F3 to the F3RC so it is much lighter now with a nice increase in exhaust note under revs. They are the MV Corse Ti headers.
