Removal of all unnecessary OEM items





Last week, the tracking finally showed us what we'd been waiting for. That our bike was scheduled for delivery at Miller's Motorsports in Lemont Furnace, PA. As soon as tracking showed a next day ETA, our guys packed up and headed north.

Unfortunately, they jumped the gun and wound up hanging out in PA for a day, not getting much done. However, the following day the news came in that what we'd all been waiting for had come in.





They had this beauty on display:



What we'd all been waiting for.



This was on a Tuesday. So the guys got the bikes loaded up and brought them back to WNC for a very hastily done tear down. We had 2 days to get these things ready for a shakedown at a nearby race track.

The first thing we did was remove a lot of parts and components we didn't want or need. This included all street parts, lots of little brackets and reflectors, all ABS components, including the hard lines, etc. All in all, we dropped around 20lbs just by removing parts the bike no longer needed.

The new CP4 power plant:


Of course we installed our Graves full titanium exhaustt:


This thing is absolutely beautiful.



Vesrah SRJLXX (RJLXX) brake pads:


We've come to trust these over anything on the track.

Of course, we had to get some track bodywork on and we'd ordered some Sharkskinz 2015 R1 bodywork last year. This stuff is really strong actually quite easy to put. Sharkskinz definitely puts time into making this stuff correctly. We've got some more really cool bodywork coming, so stay tuned for that.



We added some other familiar pieces that we also used on the old bike, such as the Graves WORKS 2.0 bar radiator cap.



Here you see the billet 19x18 Brembo master, Motion Pro Revolver throttle and Apex MFG GP clip ons w/Brake Guard.


Galespeed remote adjuster:


Of course we fitted an Ohlins TTX GP Shock Absorber:






Next were GB Racing Case Covers:


Ohlins adjustable steering damper. Also seen is the Sharkskinz intake duct.



In the process of removing the ABS system, we used Spiegler lines we already had to route to our calipers. We've got some new sets coming in shortly.



From there, we put a base ECU tune on the bikes and tried to heat cycle the engines adequately and loaded up for the track!

While at the track, our guys ran into Frank from Fast Frank Racing, who was kind enough to provide some captive and tapered wheel spacers front and rear as well as http://www.superbikeunlimited.com/p...racing-2015-r1-captive-brake-caliper-kit.html for both bikes.

These things make life so much easier on and off the track. No worries of pieces falling out or banging into the rim, or having to align things perfectly. It's all just where it needs to be.


We didn't have time to change gearing on either bike and only had one bike running a shock. Despite that, the guys decided to enter a few club races to see how the bike performed.





HUGE thanks to Tea from Pop Shadow Decals for getting us our custom stuff done and shipped in a matter of days. She is a world-class designed and printer, so if you need vinyl or wraps, check her out!

Right away the guys noted that the bikes ran very strong, even on pump gas and with a very basic tune. With stock gearing, the front wheel lifts easily in third and the bike drives very hard off of corners. The bike did feel a little more nervous in some ways compared to the extremely stable 09-14, but it turned very well and just seemed to work. Both riders commented that the bike should probably have a damper, to help stabilize things under hard throttle.

On Saturday, we had a race incident, where an on-track rider took out one of our guys and the race was red flagged. Fortunately, he was OK for the most part and the bike held up very well. Not how we wanted to end our day, but things could have been worse.

On Sunday, we had Unlimited Superbike still, which was our last chance to get these things on the box (which was seeming doable at this point, even with minimal setup and even less parts). Both riders started from the back row and by lap 3, both of our guys were top 3, only behind Stefano Mesa. Unfortunately, in the process of installing the captive brake, one of the bikes did not have a secure TC wire, which grounded on the rear rotor and caused the whole bike to go haywire. He had to pit in before lap 4. Our other rider went on to achieve 2nd place. Bear in mind, he only had an ECU tune, brake pads and the ABS delete we did.



All in all, we're thrilled with the weekend. Stay tuned! Really cool stuff is coming for the Superbike build.

Awesome stuff SBU. So the abs does come off easy, did you have to tune for it? Or just adjust the ecu through FT? This was a big question for me, if I can remove worthless abs

+1, still trying to figure out how to disable UBS/ABS without going kit ecu swap.

The flash allows for it, but we literally just took it all out. Hard lines, etc. Dropped a lot of weight and nice consistent line inner diameters.

Awesome!! The Graves exhaust your running is not the one customers can purchase correct??
Once again, I'd buy that one as it has a slighter shorter can and better angle.

I'm assuming however that exhaust is the works exhaust system not available to the general public. Too bad. :icon_sad:

is the blue R1M at that dealership sold?
Yes, it is the dealership's bike and not for sale.

Thanks, we are all really excited to keep developing the bike. Some big updates are coming this week.

In the meantime, we finished up our ECU tuning! Very strong numbers for such a mildly modded motorcycle. The 200hp run is with race fuel.
