May be able to have one machined for you James..


Do you mean the Showa fork ( nissin calipers )type or the slimmer Marzocchi fork ( Radial ) type ?

It's all about weight saving & shiny anti gravity technology :) :)

If I took cost into the equation I'd never of bought the bike, last year i did 2.5k miles and it cost me more than the bikes purchase price in shiny bits & Italian trickery...

As long as whatever you buy is shiny it's always worth it :)

Took your advice- your right, it's a magnesium alloy, stronger & lighter than ti... Awaiting further info

Ti front axle ? MV Merito I see You have a 750 F4. What else exactly have You gone on Your front wheel ?
As I learned is the axle exactly in the centre of the hub and unsprung weight saving is there at least to feel.
For an example I installed some Brembo/Marchesini Superlight wheels on my 750 and this saves alone almost 4 lbs at the front alone.
Further the brake discs of the 750 have steel flanges and weigh 3,2kg. The brake discs of the F4 1000 or an F4 Oro have aluminum flanges and weigh a pound less.
So what is exactly the weight of a 750 front axle ?
What will be the weight of a Ti axle ?
Just my thoughts and I don't want to offend Your idea here.

Hi Haupti, don't worry I'm not in the least offended

The whole bikes been lightened loads

All fixings are either ti or ally, mostly ti- it's had just about carbon everything, lightweight battery & carbon tray, brembo superlites like yours & axis rotors / disks which I'd guess are about 30% lighter than standard disks, ti rear organ pipes & ti front / mid on order...

The front ti axle isn't an essential but something I'd like- bare in mind if I'd built the bike with reason & not idealism I'd never of started it :) :)

Well I'm with You and understand. I'm currently following the same route. Alone I fear it must not be all titanium bolting for me.
