Car­bon fi­bre

Motorcycle News (UK) - - FEATURE -

Car­bon fi­bre com­po­nents are pro­duced in-house and are used to make a num­ber of parts in­clud­ing muf­fler outer sleeves, brack­ets and heat­shields.

The car­bon fi­bre is cut out 1 from sheets of raw ma­te­rial.

It’s shaped into spe­cific 2 de­signs in moulds.

These are then placed into a 3 vac­uum bag where the gases are re­moved.

The bag goes into an 4 au­to­clave, the tem­per­a­ture and pres­sure is ad­justed and the car­bon cured and then de­moulded once it has hard­ened.

Then the part is ma­chined 5 and pol­ished.
