The Öhlins TTX rear shock seen here was installed to provide better tire feedback and only took the shop about 15 minutes to mount. The shock is known for its completely separate functions for compression and rebound. The optional hydraulic preload adjustment knob was installed on the BMW's TTX shock for those situations when gear is added, a passenger hops on or the bike needs to be stiffened up for handling purposes.
The Brembo RCS19 master cylinder matches with the Brembo calipers to guarantee the BMW will stop without hesitation and even comes standard with a folding lever as a precaution. The Brembo remote adjuster leads to the left-side handlebar - this allows the rider to adjust the brake lever in or out without taking his hand off the throttle or brake lever.
The Dynojet LCD panel presents all Power Commander data in "real time" and has a wide array of options that allow the rider to, among other things, view and adjust Power Commander settings and change maps. All adjustments can be made through the display's touch screen or three easy-access buttons.
Ilmberger carbon fiber guards are seen throughout the bike. The frame guards seen here provide the BMW with a fresh look and because Ilmberger uses a special coating on their products, these pieces are more scratch resistant and will be less affected by UV light.
The nickel-finished Brembo HP monobloc brake calipers mounted to the BMW S 1000 RR provide more ridgidity, which translates into more power for squeezing the rotors. The stock rotors run the chance of overheating or warping, and were therefore replaced with the Galfer wave rotors seen here. It's important to note that the BMW was able to retain the ABS with the mods.
The Dynojet Auto Tune works directly with the Dynojet PC V. The Auto Tune kit monitors the fuel mixture and sends the information to the Power Commander V to automatically correct the map. The Auto Tune also allows the BMW to switch back and forth between the tuning modes and the base map settings.
The Akrapovic complete Evolution Titanium System weighs 16 pounds less than the stock exhaust and features a dB-killer insert that can be removed for an even louder exhaust tone. Prior to the Akrapovic install, a Yoshimura slip-on and Competition Werkes slip-on were fitted and weighed to note fit and finish.
The Yoshimura frame sliders will minimize damage from sliding-type falls and the case savers are intended to protect the bike from impacts that could crack the cases and cause oil leaks. For the BMW, these components could mean the difference between riding home and catching a ride on the tow truck.
The CNC-machined Yoshimura axle blocks seen here are lighter and stronger than the stock pieces and make it easier to adjust the chain.
The Attack Performance rearsets used on the BMW are highly adjustable and allow the rider to position the pegs and levers to the position that best fits them. The rearsets feature carbon heel guards, and partial "breakaway" pegs and allow the guys at Hard Racing to run either GP or standard shift.
