Corsa and SP exhaust guard

Posted in Ducati race Corsa strada carbon carbonio motorcycle SP2 SP3 SP4 SP4S SP5 SPS on February 3, 2010 by oronero100

Standard fitment on the SP models, though it may also have been fitted on other 851 and 888 models, is this carbon exhaust guard. It’s purpose is to give a level of heat protection to your rear shock damper unit.

It is possible to retro fit this guard by either welding on a pair of nuts at the appropriate part of your exhaust downpipe or attatching a pair of ‘rivnuts’ also known as threaded rivets to an exhaust clamp and clamping this in the appropriate place.

Again this item is manufactured by Oro Nero to our high specification using only quality materials. For all enquiries contact us via this link.

Carbon race dash 888 926 corsa type.

Posted in Ducati race Corsa strada carbon carbonio motorcycle SP2 SP3 SP4 SP4S SP5 SPS on February 3, 2010 by oronero100

Manufactured by Oro Nero this instrument dash pod uses carbon and aramid (kevlar) reinforcement cloth which is combined into a matrix using high quality epoxy, supplied by a leading worldwide resin manufacturer.

This style of instrument dash pod was only originally fitted to the works race bikes from 1992 onwards. However there is no issue with retro fitting this to any of the earlier race bikes, especially if fitted with any of the three types of race air runners/conveyors.

The three types of race air runners/conveyors will be available shortly, again made by us at Oro Nero to our normal high quality specification.

It is possible to fit these to a road going bike, especially if it is using a race style nose/front fairing, without the headlight cut out. Again these will be available from us shortly, if you want to run the bike on the UK roads with a ‘daytime only’ MOT.

We will be developing a kit to allow the fitment of the air runners/ conveyors with a headlight in the coming months. For any enquiries please send me an email, detail are given in this link.

Posted in Ducati race Corsa strada carbon carbonio motorcycle SP2 SP3 SP4 SP4S SP5 SPS on February 3, 2010 by oronero100

Manufactured by Oro Nero this fairing v-piece, uses carbon and aramid (kevlar) reinforcement cloth which is combined into a matrix using high quality epoxy, supplied by a leading worldwide resin manufacturer.

Fitment is only suitable for race fairings, either supplied directly by Ducati , Oro Nero or Fast by Ferrachi.

PLEASE NOTE this will not fit road or street fairings and some lesser quality ‘race style’ fairings, the profile is different.

Where it all started

Posted in Ducati race Corsa strada carbon carbonio motorcycle SP2 SP3 SP4 SP4S SP5 SPS on February 3, 2010 by oronero100

Back in 1999, browsing through the local Ducati dealer’s showroom I stumbled accross this 1990 Ducati SP2, within a fortnight it was in my garage. It would lead me on a journey over the coming years of highs and lows, connecting me with some great people, some of whom became good friends and a few who I would rather walk past and ignore.

In the time that I have owned this charismatic, exciting and fantastic machine there has been a progressive development in my career path. No longer am I restoring rusty and tired sports cars but since 2009 I have been manufacturing quality composite components for Ducati motorcycles.

It seemed right that I should start where it all began, with parts for the 851 and 888 models. There is a rather good forum which has worldwide participation from fans of these machines, they are also steadily gaining an enthusiastic following and upwardly appreciating value so investors are also seeking good examples out.

I recommend that you seek out the forum, http://www.ducati851and888.com there is a multitude of good information ranging from technical through to general chat. It is also a good source of finding some of the elusive parts needed to keep your machine on the road or finish up that concours rebuild, the regulars also seem very friendly!

Manufacturing of parts has now been in progress almost a year and I am looking at branding the products so that there is no confusion as to where the parts are from. This way they are not resold on as genuine period parts, (they really are that good) and can easily be spotted from genuine Ducati period parts.

Furthermore the branding will differentiate oronero products from the countless faceless rubbish available through the internet auction sites and various forums!

Feel free to contact me with any queries, I shall update this blog over the coming months with news of what I manufacture and as new components become available, regards Peter. ( January 2010 ).
