BSD Ducati 1098 race bike
While we haven’t achieved much to actually look at a deal of effort has gone into measuring the rear swingarm ratios. We’ve fitted a chopped-about Streetfighter arm plus a Ducati Factory link; and there has been much measuring and graphing compared to stock ever since, in an effort to understand the problems the stock bike [...]
BSD’s Ducati 1098 race bike project is progressing… slowly. The engine’s back in the frame and we’ve fitted an NRG slipper clutch; we’re impressed with the build quality of it. The Ducati Corse items can be fragile; we’ve had problems in the past with springs breaking and the ramps’ Teflon coating (because the clutch is [...]

2010 Triumph Sprint ECU Reprogram
The issues with this bike mainly concern power and power delivery off the bottom especially two-up. It’s been back to the dealer and had the latest factory tune, but the owner wants a little more.

Fuelling all the way through the rev range has been optimized and the ignition curve trimmed.

To upgrade to race spec we’ve fitted an Öhlins rear shock and MCT have modded the front forks. The engine’s been out and we’ve adjusted the cam timing, ported and skimmed the cylinder head and we’re fitting a set of BSD Performance adjustable bellmouths. It’s also having a YEC race loom and ECU, plus quickshifter.
