Finial design of MessnerMoto Brake/Clutch Master Cylinder

We are 99% sure that this is it. Next step is to 3D laser sinter all the parts and check how assembly work. Probably there will be some changes before production. There are 40 parts in this picture of MessnerMoto Brake/Clutch Master cylinder assembly. We will need to use at least 3 suppliers for all the parts of the assembly. The tricky part is to keep the price acceptable. Like always this is a low volume production and the price can get out of hand even because of small bits and pieces. To summarize next step is 3D printing.

Racing Experience from Belgium with MessnerMoto CB750 Cam Tensioner

Our friend and customer IG @jerreterre finished a racing season in Belgian Classic Championship 2019 with his CB750. He is using our High Performance Honda CB750 Cam Chain Tensioner in his CB750 engine. After the end of the season he had to open the engine because of con-rod bearing getting loose. While the engine was opened he inspected our Cam Tensioner and concluded that there is more racing time in it. He will continue to use the same Cam tensioner in to the next racing season. We are satisfied to see that MessnerMoto Cam Tensioner is holding that good because we were expecting that it will last one racing season. This much better then we expected result. The bike has been used in the following track days/races: 1. Bikers classics free practice, 3 days in hot weather and not holding back on the riding. 2. Chimay classics road race for the Belgian championship. 3. Classics on track: free practice on Croix en Ternois track. 4. Gedinne classic trophy for the Belgian championship. 5. Colmarberg Luxembourg for the Belgian championship. 6. Belgian 70’s cycle sprint:a drag-race event for 70’s bikes.

Triple Velocity Stacks Filter for Royal Enfield Interceptor

Special version of MessnerMoto Triple Velocity Stacks for Royal Enfield Interceptor for @moon.rever build. Basically this is plug and play Airbox delete kit. Kit will work with EFI system and respect all emission regulations. The main challenge was to incorporate Air Intake Temperature Sensor, Secondary Air Injector Solenoid line, Breather Hose line and Idler Air Control line. Like always all the parts are SLS 3D printed, that allows us to iterate and improve product on regular base. There is an option to run filters with or without UNI foam filter on top of it. For racing usage of motorcycle you would use system without UNI filters. Keep in mind that not using UNI foam filter will shorten the life of the engine because of all the dirt that goes in to running engine.

Motorcycle Brake/Clutch Master Cylinder Assembly

This is the last revision of MessnerMoto Brake/Clutch Master Cylinder assembly. Currently there is 35 parts in assembly without Oil reservoir parts. It will be complex to arrange production of all the parts. Majority of parts will be CNC machined from 6061 T6 Aluminum, but there are part like springs that will demand completely different production techniques. If you pay attention you will see that great amount of time was spent on to making assembly symmetrical… the whole assembly can be switched from brake to clutch side and the other way around. It is important to make hole assembly more economical, because we are making small series of products. One of the main features, added in this revision, is adjustable leaver ratio in combination with adjustable leaver position. Majority of thinking went in to this mechanism. More on this in the next post. Leaver is made from two parts in this revision…. in case of emergency this will protect main assembly from destruction.
