Nothing earth shattering here, but thought I'd post a couple of pics of

my new Carc cover  [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

and my new tank protector [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I had another similar tank pad that was black,

but I never really liked the look. I much prefer the see-through variety to

provide some protection from my locking tank bag.

Never had a clue what this tank protector thingy is all about. Outbreak of iron dicks, stone cold eggs or what else … Smile

Just a word of warning. Those CARC 'Protectors' mount on the brake mounting lugs on the casting. In the event of a heavy blow they will snap them off or at least crack them. You can't buy the cases separately so IMHO they'll actually do more harm than good in the event of an crash. They also add u sprung weight to an already hefty component.

Pete, was about to send your CARC housing back but have another contact who can potentially make a stick on sacrificial carbon fibre housing protector. Only negative I can see so far is carbon is not a good conductor for heat, so the question to you is, "What temp does our diff run at and how much higher can we safely go before oil breaks down prematurely"?

If this all works out then we could try for a 1200 8V head protector.

Even if you thrash the bejasus out of an 8V the bevelbox shouldn't get hot enough to damage CF.

Zippers, belt buckles and tank bags, diedel, zippers, belt buckles and tank bags.......and the fact that I have throbbing razor sharp foreskin.

The "HOT" carbon fibre is not a problem, the fact it doesn't dissipate heat means the CARC housing (if partially covered with carbon fibre) will not be able to dissipate heat as efficiently.
Therefore the oil temp inside would increase. My guestimation is the diff gets up to about 70-75*C.

I have already noticed with c/f wheels fitted, the rim retains heat and the tyres run slightly warmer, a good thing on cold wet days.
Also, because of my 4340 axle, and alloy hubs attached to the centre of the c/f wheel, these bits retain heat and the diff is quite warm to the touch.
The spokes of the carbon wheel remain cool, hence my observation that c/f is not a good conductor of heat, like alloy.


These are the extra metal bits that are currently attached to my crownwheel. The disc is the only real means of dissipating heat.

Should I be worried that I find that a bit sexy?

Nah! You were a gonner the minute you bought the GRiSO, possibly even before. Just revel in it.

I have been debating whether to get one of these as a nervous-nelly preventative measure in keeping the GRiSO logo from peeling...


Looks good!
