|GBRacing products are clearly the bench mark performance, bolt-on Motorcycle Protection for the Short Circuit, Road Racing and Street Bike community.
Testament to this is the fact that we are the only Company to have received FIM product approval for 2010-2012. This has now been renewed for 2013 through to 2016 on our range of Bolt on Secondary Engine Covers, along with MCRCB, FFM, IDM, AMA, CIV, IDM, FFM, & World Endurance approval.
We manufacture in-house, using quality injection moulding machines, specifically designed to use the high quality engineered grade of materials that we have developed over many years of research.
Our injection moulded tooling costs are one of the lowest in the industry. We are able to achieve this by continual investment in common bolsters, so that when new products are ready for tooling we only need to tool the cavity, core and ejector plates. Not only does this reduce tooling costs but it quickens production lead times considerably. Our recent purchase of our high tech CNC plant has further enabled us to reduce lead times and improve accuracy to 5uM.
GBRacing uses an engineering grade, 60% long glass fibre nylon 6.6 throughout all its bolt on Secondary Engine Covers. This nylon is stronger, more flexible, oil and fire resistant and most of all extremely impact resistant, making this material an invaluable part of our product range. The long fibers absorb more energy before and after fracture initiates. Fracture crack lines are forced around the fibre ends, resulting in a limited fracture area. Injection moulded products offer additional built in strength and flexibility compared to conventional machined plastics. Not only are the Long Glass Nylon 6.6 compounds used for exceptional impact resistance but are tailored to satisfy the need for light but durable die-cast metal replacement materials and are of our own specifications and patents.
Our Crash Bobbins, Frame Sliders and Bullet Sliders are engineered with the same exacting level of care and attention to detail. They dissipate force in their structure and are designed to bend under heavy forces rather than transfer these potential forces to the bike. They greatly reduce the possibility of ‘flipping the bike’, potentially causing more damage.
Our Bullet Sliders are manufactured in 2 versions. The Race version, sitting underneath or parallel with the fairing, concentrating on protecting the frame, radiator and other areas. The Street version protrudes beyond the fairing, where fairing damage is a high priority. Both providing another point of contact in the event of a crash.
