And it finally came in after 5 or 6 weeks of waiting... part race farkle part functional. I give you the Motoholders Carbon fiber Air Duct with Fairing Stay. My initial Impression is wow! The weave, resin, and welds all look amazing. I cant wait to fit it on and do a comparison (unfortunately I wont be able to for another 2 weeks :/ ). I don't know what the weight drop will be if any, this feels pretty stout. On the performance side I doubt it will be any "significant" difference if any but we will see!

At first I was considering the same motoholder but then I thought, what's the point. It doesn't appear to do any nothing for performance, it does nothing for weight reduction and it does nothing for bling factor since no one can see it. The only way I would buy it is if I crashed and needed a new one. And I also had some concerns of how the additional water catch section it's deleted. But with all my gripes about it, thats one sweet looking part.

That lower section isn't for catching water its a noise resonator that reduces intake noise and creates an un wanted air flow at speed. On 05-06 it was a separate part that you were instructed to remove and plug the hole however on newer models it was integrated in as a single assembly, I presume to keep manufacturing cost down. You could dissemble the factory intake, remove the small tube, plug the hole, and remove that foam but common this piece is just sexier lol

From 05-06 Race manual

" Remove the tank (16181-0002) to reduce the weight. Plug the holes firmly with a tape. The air pressure in the duct rises during high speed operation because the Ram Air System is used."

Been über busy lately finally got around to installing the Motoholders Stay and Duct. I hate to say it but it does not fit well as it should. I had to sand down some of the resin in order to have it slide smoothly into the frame head. The Stay sits about 1/2" short of the fairings.. Ill post more detailed pics when I can. However the weight savings is more than I expected and the intake is larger due to it being thiner than the plastic used.






Also got the forks back and installed last night...

Well here she be.... pics do not do the paint job justice by any means






Still more to come but I had to wrap things up for my first round of racing. She's certainly a smooth beast to say the least

I have to say I'm surprised there is that much difference in weight. Thanks for posting that, hope mine ends up fitting better, what solution did you come up with to fill the gap?
