We are making complete conversion combo for a customer. Gsxr 1000 k7/8 Front End on CB550. Combo includes top tree, bottom tree, stem, stoppers, top nut. 40mm is offset and there is 10mm drop on top tree. Optional are universal brackets for Motoscope Mini and Pro. MessnerMoto recognizable clean design.
We finally got our hands on the prototype of our Master Cylinder. Prototype is 3D laser sintered(SLS) in PA12 plastic. There are 40 parts in hole assembly. Some parts are just several mm big. All the parts came out almost perfect from 3D printing. The only problem was in 3D printed threads, but that was expected because the smallest thread in assembly is M3. We simply corrected all the threads and thread holes. The most amazing thing is that 3D printed PA12 prototype is almost usable. PA12 is really strong and durable material even when sintered in SLS process.
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.
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.
