Super nice looking new components there TT!

Big fan of the Ti bolts.

With TT in the home stretch, I spent some time tying up some loose ends.

The DMV “challenge” complete and TT is registered for road use. It’s sadly been 10 years since TT has roamed the roads of California.



Couldn’t find the “rubber band” that holds the battery in place and sadly this is no longer available from Aprilia. After searching I found one for a challenge cup RS250 and remember that the Cup RS250 I owned used a similar size battery so took a chance and ordered. It fits and holds the battery in place so problem solved. Here is a pic of the part and part number in case you are in need of one yourself.



Since I finished the 415 conversion last time in the shop, I could install the front sprocket cover with gold Ergal bolts and also swapped the stator cover bolts from red to gold.



Next up was the rear brake caliper. Since I had swapped in the S3 Performance rotor, I wanted to be sure that the pads were up to the job.



Turns out I had already swapped the pads to Ferodo Sintered at some point so I kept them in there.



Since I had the caliper off and had ordered a few extra Ti drilled bolts I swapped those out before reinstalling.





One last thing I swapped out was the spacer/washer that surrounds the front tank bolt. This part is from the RS4 125 bikes and looks a lot nicer than the plain stock one.

Swapped out the Sprocket bolts for drilled Ti and safety wired together. Haven’t done it in a while so hopefully this keeps everything in place. During the 8 hour endurance race we ran back in 2013, the sprocket bolts overcame the wave washers and came loose so I’m hoping this solves the problem.



Also safety wired the rear caliper bolts. Will probably be swapping the front caliper bolts to these type and safety wire too.



Next up was swapping out the Cagiva Mito front master for the R6 with ASV lever and Rizoma res.




Quick bleed with the mini Craftsman bleeder wrench and it’s ready for action!
