Super Double in the Superbikes for Rea and KRT

“The successes of Razgatlioglu and Carrasco, when added to a double WorldSBK win for KRT’s Jonathan Rea and a victory for Kenan Sofuoglu (Kawasaki Puccetti Racing) in WorldSSP, ensured at Kawasaki riders won every single race at Portimao…!!!”

Jonathan Rea (KRT) completed a confident double win performance at Portimao in the FIM Superbike World Championship, despite starting the 20-lap race from ninth place - under the reverse grid rules that come into play for race two this year. Jonathan now has 11 wins for the season and he extended his championship lead to 120 points with another full points score.

After his first Portimao race win on Saturday, from pole position, it was a more difficult challenge for Rea. He took only two laps to get into the lead and despite a small electronics glitch at times he carried on at an unmatchable pace to record his 34th win for Kawasaki, becoming the company’s all-time WorldSBK race winner.
Rea now has 49 race wins over his entire WorldSBK career and is the third most successful rider in the history of the class. The record sits at 59 wins, set by the legendary Carl Fogarty.
Kawasaki scored a full house of wins in every class this weekend – with Rea’s double in WorldSBK, Kenan Sofuoglu in WorldSSP, Toprak Razgatlioglu in STK1000 and Ana Carrasco in WorldSSP300.
Jonathan was the lone KRT rider today as his team-mate Tom Sykes was in Barcelona undergoing surgery to repair left hand injuries suffered in a big crash in FP3 on Saturday morning.
With Tom unable to score today Jonathan moved 120 points clear in the championship fight, with Sykes second overall and race two faller Chaz Davies third, 135 points from Rea’s lead.
Three rounds of the championship remain, the first of them at Magny Cours in France, between 29th September and 1st October.
Jonathan Rea, stated: “I am really happy to win and aside from one little issue it was plain sailing race. I made some tough passes in the first laps to get my track position and as soon as I hit the front I made my rhythm and went away. We had a completely different bike set-up today. I had a lot of feedback from the bike and I was able to ride in my own rhythm but with seven or eight laps to go I had a drop in power in second gear. But as the laps were ticking down I could see that the gap was staying constant, and then I saw Chaz went out and I had some breathing space. We have had our bad luck this year in Donington. The championship lead is massive now and we can go to Magny Cours thinking about trying to win it in France. If we have a solid enough weekend in Magny Cours we can get it done. I said to Pere before the race today that because Kawasaki had won every race at Portimao there was big pressure now. He said that there was no pressure as we had done all the jobs, and I should go out and do what I had to do. I visited the podium in every single race at Portimao to say congratulations to the Kawasaki riders. The most impressive was Ana Carrasco. I have never seen an atmosphere like it and our pit box was like a football match. All the KRT team were up there at the podium, so it was cool to see.”

Francesco's Incredible Custom Build!

We are OBSESSED with our very talented technician, Francesco's (TeamMoto Honda Springwood) custom build, and we weren’t the only ones! The good people at Heavy Duty Magazine (Australia’s #1 V-Twin Motorcycle Magazine) published a story about Francesco’s incredible custom build (Words and Pictures by David Cohen of HDM). We can’t help but feel so proud of our talented staff members! So check out the article below. And if you want your bike handled by Francesco’s clearly capable hands, find him at TeamMoto Honda, BMW, MV Agusta & Royal Enfield Springwood.

Francesco TeamMoto Honda Springwood

“I love all kinds of bikes. It doesn’t matter what kind of bike it is, I like to ride it hard.” Francesco has an accent that mixes his native Italian with years spent in Australian motorcycle workshops.

“It was the first bike I bought when I arrived in Brisbane four years ago. It was big and slow and it didn’t brake or turn but it was love at first sight and I had to have it. After months of riding it like a sports bike I ‘parked it’ under a guard rail and did significant damage: bent forks, smashed tank etcetera, and that’s where the journey started.

I’ve always loved classic bikes and café racers too, so this was a great chance to rebuild the Heritage in a style I love and also to make it more rideable.

My goals were to increase the lean angle, add more braking power and give it a more sports-ori-ented riding position and posture.

I tried a number of different solutions but a modifying a Softail chassis is not easy – especially when a café racer is the target. But this was MY bike so I had to stick with it.

So I started by roughing up some rear sets using the pillion peg mounts, and then used a number of genuine H-D and a mix of other random bike parts.

The shifter arm is off a Road King, while the shifter rod and linkage are made from random pieces and cut off from various Softails and Dynas.

I had to cut a channel through the battery tray to accommodate the shifter rod and that took a while to get the ratio correct.

The bike was completely stripped and the frame powder coated, as were the wheel rims, swingarm, lower clamps and lower fork legs.

The chassis, wheels and suspension are other-wise standard. This is because I wanted to retain the option of returning the bike to stock form – and to minimise any difficulty in getting the bike passed as roadworthy.

The front end was upgraded with a 330mm ALTH custom floating disc that is running dual Brembo calipers off a BMW R800. With the help of Craig from CSF Welding, I fitted the custom aluminium brackets to suit the twin 4 piston callipers which give the bike brutal stopping power. The master cylinder is off a Kawasaki Vulcan 1500.

Rather than have two straight braided lines I really wanted to make a bridge between the two callipers and an elegant solution was provided John Stamnas.

For Evo forks the choices are somewhat limited but the next step in the front-end build will be to add progressive springs and gold valves or cartridge inserts.

The whole front-end look is set off by the original headlight mounted below the triple clamp – it gives the bike a much lower style.

The rear disc is incorporated into the GMA pulley, which looks cool as and gives much better stopping power than I expected. The only issue with the pulley is the standard belt covers don’t fit so one had to be custom made.

The objective of better stopping power has been achieved however having both brakes on the same side gave me the idea to fit a hub cover to match the front wheel. Steve from Suspension Improvements machined a bracket from solid alloy which mounted the powder coated cover.

The engine was completely stripped and freshened up with new main bearings, new rings and conrod bushes. The crankshaft has been rebuilt by good old Ollie Logan and Sons.

The cylinder heads have been shaved and I did some porting work at Ollie’s suggestion. Adjustable pushrods and an Andrews EV27 cam were fitted. I bead blasted the engine and paint is by Richard Simpson with a gloss two-pac enamel to enhance the café presentation.

Carburation is a S&S Super B, rebuilt with a genuine S&S kit and tuned to suit the engine modi-fications. It doesn’t like to go slowly for too long – it likes long and fast roads.

The standard ignition may be upgraded to a single-fire Dyna unit in the future.

The fantastic sounding exhaust system incor-porates custom headers I made from parts from a Buell, a Sportster and whatever was left of the originals after the ‘incident’ with the guard rail. The genuine Kerker mufflers were a massive eBay score from an unknown Harley.

The inner primary cover and gearbox cases were powder coated by Roberto’s Custom Powder and the gearbox was fully rebuilt with new bearings and bushes.

The front guard is off a Victory Hammer and the rear is an original 94‘ Softail that came from a wreck and modified to the style I wanted.

The tank was reshaped by Matt Marxsen and was originally off a CB 400 Honda Supersport. The paint was done by Richard Simpson and is Ford Blue two-pack.

Why the Donald Duck you ask? Well, because he’s very similar to me – he gets pissed off easily but is very big hearted. The blue really matches his face and hat and I wanted him to be angry.

Francis Von Tuto, comes from my passion for Kustom Kulture and Von Franco and Von Dutch.

The seat is a LePera unit off a Dyna and needed a custom bracket to fit, but it offers good comfort and is a very well made seat and really adds to the Café line from tank to rear guard.

Originally the plan was to fit Triumph Thruxton handlebars but they didn’t work as well as the racing clip-ons I ended up with.

Handgrips are Biltwell, and the switches are super-rare, machined alloy units from Accell that I found on Gumtree. They came as casings only and I had to buy Shovelhead switch internals, including wires and buttons, to fit them.

The original ignition switch was moved to the triple clamp but I wanted to keep it simple so the warning lights are just neutral and oil pressure.

It’s very satisfying when people accelerate to look at my bike and having more saddle time shows me what it needs next. The side covers, dashboard and a few other components need finishing.

I’d like to thank my number one fan and partner Pamela, Tony Hughes for all his very precious support during the three years working together and all my good friends for all the support during the build of my first custom bike.”
