    Loctite

    You normally use blue Loctite on brake disc bolts and not the stronger red version.

    Yeah thats why I mentioned it as I was sure you'd confirm it was not optimal. So thanks for doing that.

    Torque Setting

    For HP forged wheels the torque setting for the front brake disc bolts is 24 Nm tightened in a diagonally opposite sequence. The sensor ring bolts are 5 Nm. If you do use Loctite (which isnít listed in the Service Manual but most use it) then only use Blue Medium compound sparingly. For other brand wheels (BST, Titax etc) itís worth just checking the fitting instructions as the torque values may be slightly different.

    Titax

    Titax: info@titax.com

    Failing that Iím sure Calsport will have the torque value to hand.

    Interestingly the DLC pistons are nearly 3x the weight of OEM. They glide super smoothly. But pad/piston knock back with head shake is more of a possibility.

    (Advice from HM to be cognizant of it)

    Re: Alex - 2017 S1000RR - Grey/Black

    Ready to race.

    Dunlop D212 E Rear and M Front treaded for Brands Hatch. Decided against the V02's as @Bananaman felt they may struggle for heat in the front if its cool...and it is the UK after all.

    There's a few small changes.

    1. Used Galfer floating front discs, because I scored the ORO's I had on when the pad failed.
    2. PFC95 pads
    3. Reflushed brake system w/lcf600
    4. Alpha DLC brake pistons

    5. Ohlins NIX30 cartridges 10.25 spring
    6. Ohlins TTX GP BM468 95 spring

    7. PP-Tuning Clipons
    8. HP4-RACE Throttle and matching left grip 58degree roll.
    9. Alpha Clutch Cable

    10. New DID chain
    11. 16/46 Sprockets

    Now there are a couple of issues to sort out...
    At some point during the work the exhaust servos got disconnected and now I have the ENGINE! warning. The DDC delete couldn't be done before the Ohlins went in. Both of these I hope to rectify at Parklane on weds. The garage I used couldn't clear Euro4 RR errors with their GS911.

    Said garage were left to their own devices over the chain, I didn't supply a replacement as I didn't think what I had was dead. They told me it was, fair enough. They run 16/43 for their race bikes. So they defaulted to the chain length for that. They put in a 118 link when the gen3 came with 120. Combined with the 46t rear (which I supplied) means the wheelbase is something like 586 instead of 600-608. That wheelbase, plus the 46T, is potentially wheelie city.

    I have 44T sprockets for both wheel sets as well as 45/46's so I am going to go to Brands, see what happens and the change to the 44T if I want to. If I use the 44T I can make a call on going to 43 later...

    By fitting a 44T the axle will go back about 8mm, maybe more, so it will still be short. It will stretch in time as well. I am a bit narked over this. Part of the point of going to 46T was to reduce the long wheelbase a few mm whilst still being long enough to not wheelie too much. This has thrown that in the bin, for no reason other than a lack of thought about what I want not what they 'do normally'.

    Fwiw they run 16/43 and just forget about 6th on UK tracks...we've 200hp after all.

    Anyway, she looks mega, has new springy bits and is setup to help me in the turn with front end confidence. She'll just be a bit lively with the new throttle and the short wheelbase!
