Right tank frame in Alutex silver carbon fiber BMW R NineT Family Bullymachine
This tank frame allows you to refine the tank once the original air intake cover or even the entire air intake has been removed, restoring more symmetry to the two sides of the bike which were originally very asymmetrical.
The frame can also be mounted with the air intake mounted if the purpose is only aesthetic, just remove the aluminum-colored cover that covers the air intake by means of the 2 visible screws and install this by means of the same screws.
We prefer to remove the air intake almost always because it is nothing more than a bottleneck for anti-pollution regulations, once disassembled you can realize even just by looking at how little air it allows to enter the airbox going to penalize the engine performance Furthermore, since the plastic is a heat conductor and being close to the engine, the air originally passes through a hot pipe, thus increasing the temperature of the air entering the airbox, also to the detriment of the engine's performance.
Some call it carbon silver, others call it white carbon, but the real name of this composite material is Alutex.
We have decided to produce it also in this variant in Alutex for the very shiny Silver colour, brightness and tonality not reproducible with paint, very in tune with the Nine-T series which, with all the silver anodized components, goes very well with this material. Unfortunately this sheen is not very visible in the photographs, a bit like metalflake paints, for this reason we have prepared a video where the authentic chromatic effect is more visible, you can find it at the end of the description
Used especially in the design sectors, alutex stands out for its excellent aesthetic properties which, combined with the technical characteristics, make alutex a particularly durable and resistant material.
Alutex derives from the transformation of the glass fabric with an aluminisation process, which maintains the workability and compactness requirements of the resins with the fiber unchanged.
Just like for carbon, we only use pre-peg materials for alutex to ensure maximum aesthetic performance, flexibility, resistance, lightness, durability over time.
Pre-preg is a term used to refer to "pre-impregnated" fiber-reinforced composite materials in which a matrix material, such as epoxy resin, is already present. The fibres, of the continuous type, are generally arranged to form a fabric, while the matrix is used to fix them together and possibly with other components during production. The matrix is only partially crosslinked, so that it can be manipulated easily; this is called stage B material and requires low-temperature storage to avoid completion of cross-linking. Stage B pre-pregs are always stored in cooled areas as heat accelerates the cure. Therefore, composite structures made of pre-preg will need an oven or autoclave for curing.
