Fellow 910's Moto Corse 990 underway.........now with more pics........

Our first in the country, it certainly dont look like a DIY garage job, but it just took couple hours to strip everything down. Some pics for those who like skeletons. We're lucky to have a local shop that can do this right. Its projected to be 160hp!! Hmmmmmmm, i really dont need all that power.....












and while in the shop, we have the most extensively modified 999 in the land :

What kind of radial brake adapter is that- it looks like it's attached to the standard fork dropouts?

160hp? What else are you doing to the bike to pick up 35 to 40 extra hp? Thats a tall order from an 80cc increase in displacement.

yea, i laughed at that radial mount when i 1st saw it, but owner said it really work much better than the stock nissins, plus its much cheaper than a "real" radial mount, so whatever works i guess.

thats what Motor Corse promises, plus this will also have the single outlet MC full exhaust which is bling bling.

It's really counter-inuitive and more 'bling' than functional. Radial works better because the way the forces react 'radially' rather than perpendicular to to axle; This one works the same as stock, just with brembo calipers.
