I have some barracuda race indicator mirrors which are much smaller than stock, would be interesting to see the difference, the first high speed run I did with the new mirrors I didn't have them done up tight enough and they would slowly start folding in at about 260 km/hr...lol...could be a useful feature

It sounds interesting, but I do not believe that they are designed to act that way.
Congratulations for the nomination of your motorbike as ' Motorbike of the month '. You made her very beautiful

One question: did you have opportunity to try in a Dyno if the open bubble of Hotbodies (without the triangle), improves the yield? and it seem that it does not have the holes of the original, does your head tremble very much?

Haha yeah i know they're not meant to fold back the faster you go, just thought it was funny at the time when it happened. I have tightened them up now so they stay put.

I haven't been able to get a dyno tune since installing the full AR system but it is on my to do list. Looks like it will be after the Christmas break now. I would be interested to know about the intake triangle also.

The hotbodies Dual radius screen is about an inch taller then the stock screen and does not have any holes compared to stock. I'm quite slim and only 5ft 7" tall so I am able to lay right down on the tank and look through the screen when going for top speed and don't have any issues with aero.

My next tests will be:

2- To lower the motorbike

3- Of course to cover the holes of the bubble

Greetings
Do you have a picture of the GPS showing the 319 km/h run? i would like to send it to the S1000RR facebook page

I believe lowering the bike and covering those holes of the DB screen will help you get better top end speed.

Wish you all the best

A lot of thanks for the note of the magazine. As the friend "I JET" said, we will see that comments arise after the lecture.
At first I already commented to you on the interesting thing of covering the holes of the bubble.
A thing that I want to share in relation to another part of the note, is that I realize all my tests with DTC and ABS in OFF. My 'Dyno Man' mentioned to me that in all the tests that he realized with bikes as our own ones, the results were minor if the systems were in ON. Trying to think about it, we come to the conclusion that being in ON, it interfere somehow in the software of the ECU for the prosecution of the information that are ordering the respective sensors. For my part I believe that this must be worse in the road, since at high speeds and for the differences of the way, the rear tire must stay a few moments in the air and therefore on having detected the system the difference of velocidd with the front tire, he must suppose that it skates and must reduce potency. It is my humble opinion.
In relation to the photo for that you ask me, surely I have one and transfer you the copyright. JAJAJA!!!


Wish you all the best, also
