Ciao Martin, I must still mount on my bike the auto clutch, so I cannot express my opinion yet.

Already, I know some people which have used it in off-road, they are very satisfied, I'm very curious in road use.

Still few weeks agrees also I will be able to have my opinion.

Piero, are you using a hand operated brake for the rear? Thats what your previous pictures are telling me :bonk: Your rear caliper is a piece of art :naughty: Are these parts going to help you with your battle with weight?

Yes Martin, I will use the automatic clutch, then I can remove the clutch lever, so, with the hand brake I will be able to manage better the rear brake in all type of road curves.


.....Your rear caliper is a piece of art......


It's true!

All the products of the Discacciati catalog are CNC machined. :bonk:

Ciao, Martin


A little bit.

The new rear caliper is little heavier than the original one, but the master cylinder is more lighter than the original one and to the stock brake pedal (yezzzzz).

Ciao and you see to the next previews. :naughty:

Piero, Thanks for the links, some sweet stuff! the rear brake left hand deal will take a bit of getting used to. the weight you saved on the master cylinder will be lost with the additional length of rear brake line :naughty: But on the bright side you should have no problems with hot rear fluid :D
Have a happy easter, cant wait to see your next mods and the final (if there is such a thing) assembled bike pictures! :bonk:

Yes it's true, I will have some gram more, but I can accept this compromise, the advantages are more some disadvantages.

.....cant wait to see your next mods and the final (if there is such a thing) assembled bike pictures!......


Still few weeks, I have given the bike to an artisan who will build a new header pipe, then I will assembly all new particulars for 2007 version.

Also I'm impatient to see it ended (to drive it too).

Happy easter.

Ciao Piero

Ciao Hondathumper450, thank you very much for the information, but I must tuning the bike, I will keep alone the frame and the engine (like my XR), also I will sell the pieces which do not serve me any more.

This is my old bike with some special parts: Keihin CR carbs, Koni shock absorbers (modified to have variable wheelbase), Dyna electronic ignition and CB350 mufflers (I love to see four mufflers on this kind of bike :thumbsup:).

My last purchase, pit-bike boots, Axo Slammer Boot.

I will wear them to use the bike every day, they are "easier" than complete off-road model:

Piero, those look like they will last a while I like the double stitched soles and the metal toe guards :thumbsup: I have been wearing the Thor 50/50 boots and they are pretty comfortable but the soles are seperating where they are glued :ride: to the uppers therefore I would not reccomend them. I was considering the Alpinestars tech 2 as a replacement, but I think I like the Axo slammers better, but alas I have not seen them here in the states yet :worthy: Easier meaning to put on, and the weight, I used to wear alpinestars tech 8's sure they offer more protection but are a pain to wear all the time! Ciao, Martin

......I used to wear alpinestars tech 8's....


Ciao Martin, I like very much these boots. :thumbsup:

I have always worn road boots (Alpinestars GP-Pro) with which I could quietly walk but with kick starter are not suitable.

Then I looked for an off-road boots but, as you have written, are a pain to wear all the time...........

The Axo Slammer have the big value to have the soft rear part which helps me when I wear them, however these aren’t either suitable for walking.

The shoe is too stiff as the classical off-road boot............

I will change the soles with the spare Axo dedicated to supermoto, or I will buy the soles of Vibram that always is dedicated to supermoto.

Both of them have the interchanging sliders.


Vibram supermoto soles (sorry is in italian language):

P.S. I have found this (there are Alpinestars and Gaerne pit-bike boots too):
