Classic TT 2013 - Post Race Inspection

A few weeks ago I finally got around to doing a thorough post race check on the Duke 888.

Here's what I found:
  • Minor oil leak from the clutch push-rod on left side of engine
  • Fuel tank fastening tab bent - this forced the tank down and the fuel tank pump outlet under the tank onto the top cylinder, causing a minor fuel leak down the right side of the engine
  • Belly-pan battered 'n scraped
  • Left front brake caliper leaking badly from the pistons. Inside of the caliper was touching the disc
  • Warped disc - about 3mm out of true
  • Rear subframe undertray mounting tab broken - this holds the ECU
  • Water overflow/spray from expansion tank - looks like the seat has worn a hole in the cap
  • Overflow tank bracket broken

RedMax Steve will be doing a post race health-check on teh engine and then setting it up for this year. Racing on the Isle of Man sure is tough on the machinery... but she held up really good :-)

Couple of repair jobs and then a few improvements...
