I have received my titanium axle spindles for my bike this morning. I expect these to make a huge weight saving to the bike. The Front spindle weighs in at 326 grams with the rear weighing in at 313grams.
I have just received my first custom engine spacer for the bike. The standard item weighs in at 48 grams where my titanium spacer weighs in at just 26 grams. This is a prototype and the final version will be slightly lighter.
Well done to Dani for winning at sachsenring, After a great ride Casey made third after Lorezo stole second on the final lap. Another great ride for Dovi who managed fourth after fighting off Simoncelli.
When I fitted the smoked mirrors, I noticed each mirror had 2 M8 bolts holding the main mirror on the stalk. I have replaced these with Titanium race spec bolts. I have saved 2 grams per bolt as a result.

The Australian rider who had a small crash in the morning session, completed forty-seven laps and set a new circuit record of 1'47.326 on his penultimate lap, seven tenths faster than his pole position time set here on Saturday. As well as the swing arm, Casey tested a new Bridgestone front tyre as well as some other smaller set up issues on his RC212V. Andrea Dovizioso got up to a good pace quickly. He completed sixty six laps and spent the day working on engine braking and testing the new swing arm. The plan for Dani Pedrosa, considering the pain in his right shoulder and the fatigue accumulated ov…
Well done Dovi for getting great second place at Mugello. Casey managed third place and still leads the championship. Its great to see Dani back in a bike after an extended rest due to his broken collar bone.
