We love it when the sponsored parts show up, thank you very much mate.
The throttle we have already tested on the #2 bike and it works great, so now we have one for #1 Mv.
The air intake tubes are for track use only, as most would notice that there are no attachment points for the wire cover.
There are quite a few other points but I will leave that open for discussion on my team post.
This is to say thank you to Al for his support, and those tubes look amazing, I am sure there will be HP to be gained in the design.

I don't think you get it mate, it's not the same thing, they are not meant to be thick and look like the factory part. These are race parts and have no room for wiring covers etc.

Good, as long as everybody else understands that too matey.

There is always so much politics going on with you guys and all this carbon supplier business, one never knows what to read into your statements.

Those tubes of yours look great, I need to take some better pics too.:banghead:

I'll second that!

I had MVSP airtubes on my MV's, I just moved them from bike to bike, they were incredibly light and probably the biggest weight saving out of most of the carbon v plastic original ...................... they were however so expensive that you just could not risk them on a race bike, I think I paid £900 for a 'left over' pair, the list price was around £1200.

On the weight saving an MV plastic side panel is around 250 grammes heavier than an MVSP carbon one, in fact that was around the average per panel, I would guess the cheaper carbon fibre may be no lighter than OEM plastic.

Picture of MVSP carbon airtube on my bike, just look at the flat finish (no ripples and panel fit) it just doesn't come any better, or to put another way with carbon fibre ''You getwhat you pay for''

Looks good mate all myn carbon is top notch too, the biggest weight save for me was the air box the standard one was real heavy compared to the cf one it was amazing really but the AirTunes are a work of art like urs u had seat unit it lot lighter too

End of day like u said you get what you pay for and I got very good stuff but people buy what they want to and from were they want to all my post are to say thank you to my supplier not an advertising campaign for him

No worries Dons, Glad you got them in one piece.

Let me know how you get on.:f4:

Just to add my $0.02 (Canadian) to the mix:

I've started stocking up bits for my yet-to-be-received F3, and and Al gave me the heads up about a few new parts before they were posted here. A slick maneuver to get more of my $$, but I'm a sucker that way so not much arm twisting required. So I added some CF bits (and will be getting a few more now that everything has arrived and I see the Quality - with a capital Q - in these parts).

To the kicker - NO DUTY!! Don't know what sort of voodoo he's pulled with the Canadian Customs forms, but everything arrived at my door sans extra fees needed. Great surprise.

Will be ordering from Design Corse again once the beast arrives.

Thanks, Al

Great News Wil, Glad you are happy with the parts and service and look forward to working with you again.

Be sure to get some images up of the F3 beast when she arrives:yo:
