DURBAHN BMW S1000RR
Januar - Juni 2011
June 28/2011: S1000RR, hidden radial superlight rear brake
Now available in the Shop !
3D CNC machined
June 22/2011: S1000RR - Airbox Update-
Luis from Spain is doing the mould of the Airbox lower Section at present, we've gotta Fun.
June 18-19/2011: S1000RR - Monocoque/ FueltankDummy/Airbox Update- Picture series
June 15/2011: S1000RR - Monocoque/ FueltankDummy/Airbox Update
June 12/2011: S1000RR - Monocoque/ FueltankDummy Update
The mounting Spots for the Monocoque created
June 08/2011: S1000RR - Monocoque/ FueltankDummy Update
To have a fresh new start- everything Base Coated now.
The Man behind all that work is Luis from Spain.
June 06/2011: S1000RR - Monocoque/ FueltankDummy Update
Everything is growing.
April 20/2011: S1000RR light
hidden rear radial Brake-Assy.
April 10/2011: kind of Marriage.
Joined the Fueltank-Dummy with
A lot of measuring and adjustment before
In the end I will cut it again
into 2 Pieces, but the Separation-Lines will be somewhere else.
April 3/2011: The raw Layout what
I will do.
I will use four Desmosedici 12 Hole Shower Injectors to fuel the S1000RR.
In the end it will of course look a bit nicer, aswell I need to find the correct Position/Height of Injectors above Funnels, but that's just a minor Prob.
April 1/2011: The S1000RR Fork
now back in black, as it should be.
New triples added also.
March 31/2011: The superlight,
hidden, radial rear Brake.
The CAD/CAM Layout here 5th Version
March 29/2011: My S1000RR Cable
clutch is done so far.
The declutch-Stroke is adjustable from 1,0 to 1,7mm, which allows me to adjust the Handforce for the Clutch exactly to it's minimum.
To sum up: I'm satisfied with
The Handforce for clutch-operation decreased close to 50%.
The Spot of pressurizing the pushrod is easy and fast adjustable from the outside, the necessary declutch-Stroke even faster, and without Tools.
March 23/2011: joined my S1000RR Fueltank-Dummy with an aftermarket Tailsection, need to check now which Ideas may grow.
March 09/2011: the 1000RR declutch Mechanism with way less Handforce and much more Sensivity, and additional adjustable declutch Stroke - growing.
March 07/2011 - the Solution for the Magnesium Valvecover of the S1000RR, which is not protected against Corrosion BMW (check January 24):
Easy to apply.
Clear, so in Case the coating maybe "wounded" you'll detect again upcoming Corrosion immediately.... and then simply add another Layer.
Anti-Stick characteristics .
A Tipp: very good also as "Drylube/Coat" for axles and bolts... dust or dirt won't stick.
Available here inside my Shop
March 07/2011 S1000RR:
my new S1000RR declutch Mechanism with way less Handforce and much more Sensivity.... next Step
In the Makes.
The OEM Alternator Cover.
After I cut cut out an Edge of the Cover (check January 30) this Section has been filled up again with Magnesium- then I started with my milling machine.
The final Result will show up here approx May.
March 02/2011 S1000RR :
MoTeC wire harness, Fueltank-Dummy, Airbox lower Section
Main wire Harness.
So far the main wire Harness for the S1000RR/MoTeC is done.
Missing of course are Connectors, and then what is going on then from there... Sensors, Relays... .
But it looks like I've saved a couple of ounces !
Have to find a good Shape for the missing Fuelcap, not so easy, but I think I got it.
February 25/2011 S1000RR - the front Fork
After all what I've heard from competent sources, the S1000 RR Fork is well Setup for that Bike.
Switching to Ohlins often leads into Troubles (for teams below WSBK).
So I thought why hassle, I keep the OEM Fork, and simple rework it slightly.
First Step was to remove the ugly colors of the OEM S1000RR Fork Bottoms, and the Fork Legs.
February 21/2011 S1000RR- Wire harness Start.
Began as usual, then made the Drafts, what belongs where and decided length of wires.
Everything based on the free programmable ECU from Motec, here the M800
February 10/2011 S1000RR - Fueltank-Dummy
The Basic Fueltank-Dummy is done.
The final Shape is still not clear. It will depend on the Design of the Fueltank and Monocoque.
February 9/2011 S1000RR and the Airbox.
The rough Layout of the S1000RR is done, now it's up to the fine-work, which takes most of the Time.
February 5/2011 S1000RR and the approximate
What I hope to realize until September:
Wire harness with Motec M880/M800 and Motec SDL or ADL 2/3
Custum Titanium Exhaust
My own rearsets
The S1000RR is OEM 454 lbs ( incl. Fuel), I will try to get it
in the first step down to 160 kg, so 353 lbs ( measured with 5 Liters of Fuel ).
But this is really approximate, because I have not much experience with the S1000RR at present, and have not written down the weight of the OEM Bits.
But I think will be able to shave close to 100 lbs.
I thought I will build a better Cable Clutch with less hand force, and more Sensivity.
Therefore it took an angle grinder, some kinda chips I need to fab on the milling machine.... to find out, if there's significant Magnesium inside this Alloy.
Does it burn ? ..ok, I need Mag
GOT IT !
The Combination of a free programmable ECU from Motec (here
M800), and the Drive by wire Unit of the S1000RR.
With all the benefits, that you do not have with a OEM or BMW race ECU:
- Throttle Blip at downshifting
- Adjustable Engine Brake Moment
- fully individual TC, you van use all Tyres you like
- individually adjustable Lauch Control
- with "Key Lock Switch" you could adjust the Horsepower in a way that you could even let ride the Beamer by your Son...
- Lambda Control
.. well and Tons of other Stuff, only the restriction of your possible Ideas can restrict the MoTeC ECU.
Had to rack my brain for a while about the functionality of the DBW gearbox, and what is doing what and why.
There are some safety-Features inside, which have their up- and also downsides.
Depending on what you want there is a necessity of modifications - means if you want to have the full benefit of all the Features, which the Motec ECU in conjunction with the ADL2/3 is able to deliver.
More Details later, some Pics
MoTeC M880/M800 and the BMW S1000RR DBW Unit
I will check the DBW Unit again, and I am so far convinced, that I can make the S1000RR run with the Motec ECU, with all the full programmable Features.
I decided to go for two things next:
to build my own Airbox
to build my own Exhaust
own means I will go my radical way, which at least at the
first Stage, will not be compatible with any OEM BMW or Aftermarket Stuff
That thought I went to the Workshop, and started to disassemble the S1000RR again
Tipp: paint the valvecover, it's mainly from Magnesium, and bare...
Weight OEM Exhaust: 11.2 kg
730 gr. , so 1.61 lbs is the OEM BMW rear Brake disc, which is
The new Brakediscs should be max. 1lbs, or even less.
2 different Friction Height Versions will be available, because...
I already have got the first Sample of a nice light hidden radial rear Brake-Assy done, which hope they are ready for sale in approx 5 weeks (but I will show some pre-Pics... CAD Drawings before)
