Some rare Alu parts for sale
« on: June 06, 2021, 07:42:27 pm »
Hi All

I've had another garage tidy and found some rare parts. All are used, but in pretty good condition. I can send photos to anyone interested.

I've had a number of offers already and it's getting a bit messy to manage, so I'll be listing on ebay soon.

Single seat kit - complete with carbon bits and aluminium end caps




Alu Scoops - the top ones on the picture here




Alu Belly Pan



Alu lower scoops - the bottom ones on the picture here. The brackets for these are shot on one side, so you'll need to remake something. Also, one of the grilles melted off, so it will need re-fixing (they're just held in place with some sort of silicone)



MT Alu mirrors - I have two sets, one with Yamaha written on them, the other with the MT logo only.



Still got a few more things to sort out, I'll update here as and when.

Nikk

...since you offered, can you send photos of the belly pan?  That would get me fizzy and into bidding mode...   ;D

When the bike was first released they had a lot of Aluminium parts available which were all really nice additions. They had some problems though as the vibes cause brackets to fail on the brake covers and the lower scoops and, as far as I know, the company that made them went bust not long after.

The alu scoops and belly pan look particularly good and have gone for big money previously.

I have most these parts...
 The brake scoops are prone to failure. And as they dont use a bracket, once the stainless 'chassis' is fractured, it's pretty much toast until you get them remade. Which is not beyond the wit of man today with jet cutting etc. Its 2D item. You'd need to source the vent mesh to match the rest of the set IMO...
 I have had mine redone and been successful in refixing the scoops with hybrid sealant/adhesive..Ive also had to go to some lengths to ensure the side lowers are appropriately AV mounted to eliminate the vibration stresses that lead to the eventual failure of the carrier brackets ( still available from Yamaha, as you can just buy a stock version and modify it ) The AV mounting does set them a further out by a few mm from the mounting point, if you're being really fussy about these things ! I  revised my design to reduce this by trial and error and eventually found a sweet spot that seems to work.... ;D
 They look great. Id not have bought an MTO1 if mine hadnt come adorned in the accessories. Yeah- just in it for the looks.... ::) 
    Just got lucky that it turned out to be such a well engineered bike; Looks good, great fun to ride. Easy and neutral to handle for a beginner like me, and a soundtrack that makes you wanna wind it up over and over !!  ;D
