Klart det, her fra google translate:Baptized Phoenix, the Daytona RS Paul's has been transformed and has soared more vigorous than ever.
The mail came to the office a couple of months ago is one of those that are read with satisfaction: "Good morning, purchase Super Moto Technique since way back in 1988 and I see with pleasure that you have returned to the great love of the Special, in my opinion the most beautiful expression of motorcycling. I send you a couple of pictures of one of my. If you are interested to see it up close ... I'm available! ". Having said that, a phone call, the 'you' Direct, a few days and we are in the garage of Paul Canattieri, the parties to Brescia to see his masterpiece. "I recently managed to ricavarmi a space all to myself, with even a tornietto and a minimum of equipment so as not to be totally dependent on external suppliers, so we step leisure". There is not only the Phoenix but also an Aprilia RSV 1000, "A great bike, this species Factory version. It was not fully understood and is used at attractive prices. A real bargain for those looking for the substance ". Totally agree, Paul. Nearby, a Guzzi V11 Sport virtually standard. Between the two the bike on which Paul spent many hours of work and a tidy sum of € "Better not talk about it. The bike has grown in small steps, so the 'barrel' have been many but a little 'diluted. Better not to make money, but ... ". Well, the 'outputs' have been metabolized in some way, and you just have to enjoy the result. "The exhaust is a bit 'open," adds Paul, "and on the road there stands out, but the habitat of this bike is the track. That 's where you are having fun. "Illustrious but datat basis
It all started when Paul did not hesitate to bring in a nice garage more than ten years ago by an almost certain export Guzzi Daytona Rs 1000 in 1997, saving it in Germany, where the 'Guzzone', the most rare species such as this, are very requested and appreciated. A bike which also had great appeal as it was but now denounced the weight of years, with those horizontal lines that are stretched a bit 'at odds with the latest style trends. What is special, then! Away at once the original codon and looking for an alternative compatible with the overall dimensions of the rear. The choice fell on a component that Suzuki has however had to be modified heavily, despite even the rear frame has suffered job of 'cut and paste' to compact it. Among the changes to the codon rear cut to make way for single silencer, positioned perfectly at the center and the downsizing of the joining area with the tank, which has remained the original, except for replacing the cap with an LLS component Ergal. About drain, the whole system is the work of Ivan Crotti of RC67, with the aggressive terminal that ends with a 70 mm mouth, equipped with dB killer. The sound that comes out is heavenly and broadcasts live what happens inside the two pipes flowing with Cosworth pistons of 100 mm diameter. Also moved the battery, which has now found its space under the transmission. Continuing on cosmetic changes Paul used a fairing in fiberglass craft in which housed a small head lamp and graced with two former air conveyors Aprilia RSV 1000. On both sides of NACA air vents that bring in fresh air central area of the engine. Carbon treatment for valve covers: "I'm not completely in carbon, since the cost of the two components of this kind is very high. A friend who works these materials in an autoclave me 'lined' them with a thin skin getting an identical look and a certain protection against abrasion. " Real carbon fiber handlebars are set at the two supports ergal billet. The electrical system has been moved behind the windshield that at the center mounts the digital dashboard of Falcon Digitek. Continuing with the chassis, the two light alloy plates that bind to the main frame beam have been abundantly lightened and perforated to give it an appearance more similar to those of the glorious 'four valves' of Dr. John. On them a couple of rearsets is applied self-built, with the point of attack and set back up compared to the original. The swing arm and hence the transmission shaft and the torque rod (with terminals mounted on uniball joints), have been lengthened by about 30 mm. The circle used is a magnesium Marchesini 17 "Channel 6" Superbike branch on which a radial M Dunlop Sport tires in 190/55 measure is mounted. An intervention is not trivial, that needed attention to restore the correct alignments. The rear disc is derived from an Aprilia 125 road and is braked by a Brembo caliper. The suspension geometry has remained the original one, but the single is now an air / oil Double System, a lightweight component and, according to Paul, the excellent operation, despite apparently the compressed air chamber that replaces the spring can be sensitive to temperature variations, rather important when the component works in a hidden area of the air flow and in the vicinity of strongly radiating parts such as the exhaust pipes.
The relevant axle interventions aimed at making more agile driving: steering geometry was varied by acting on inclination of the sleeve (-1 °) and mounting plates with a reduced off-set, while the original fork has been replaced with a valuable Mupo Racing up-side-down fork with 46 mm pressurized, passed through the hands of Team X one Endurance and so on Phoenix. And 'obviously fully adjustable and fine milled from solid legs bear attacks for Brembo radial calipers operated by a radial piston pump with 19 mm. For discs Paul has decided for a Braking torque. To check sbacchettate was mounted a rotary steering damper Scotts (marketed by Ohlins) adjustable on the high and low speed damping. Extremely compact unit and simple installation. The care for the assembly of the bike is well illustrated by the photographs. Of course, not missing a wide use of special bolts in ergal or titanium: small but expensive details that count.Dynamic engines
Paul's RS is one of the first produced as an evolution of the Daytona 1000 and rode the outset, the C kit, which provided, among other things, the exchange rate with the spur gears, Carrillo rods, cams with more 'crossover', fly lightened and other special components. E 'it is known as the Moto Guzzi twin bear substantial increases in capacity. The structure is robust and assembled with criterion if this engine is able to be quite reliable. Incredible play, obviously on thermal units. First, a nice pair of 100 mm Cosworth pistons, coupled to the standard 78 mm stroke lead displacement 1225 cm3. The valves are special components: the suction by 51 mm and that of exhaust, Nimonic alloy, 43 mm. The camshafts are F1 CAMS specialized for these components, in particular for large Guzzi. The connecting rods are steel Carrillo fitted as standard with the shaft C kit original engine but has been reprocessed to lighten and balance it according to the new reciprocating masses. The intervention of additional relief has also covered the flywheel and this changed the 'character' of the engine, much more now ready to take the turns and closer, in this sense, the twin-cylinder Ducati. Important for many of the interventions made on the mechanics, the work of Bruno Scola, Guzzi old coach, whose experience has deep roots, since the 70's. For the extraction they were maintained the original throttle bodies, only a little reamed (about 1 mm on diameter) to adapt them to the new-forming of the intake and the valve.
Replaced the gas pressure regulator. The work of re-profiling and polishing has also been extended to a flue. The breathing of the engine is free: there is no air box but only of carbon fiber croissants applied to the throttle bodies.
To improve the lubrication, the original pump was replaced with a component of V11 derivation. The return we have already said and add that it is today in part quite coveted by those who prepare these bikes. Known as the 'straight teeth' give advantages in terms of power consumption, but it does make much more noisy transmission. But what is considered a defect for a touring bike becomes a plus for a sports bike ...
You see how Paul 'lived' his bike and modifying evolving it step by step, through successive transformations: "This Guzzi contains a bit 'all that is my vision of Special. I am not to elencarti through many changes over the years it has passed. And it's not over yet. For now I can sum up the result with two numbers: 50 pounds lighter and 50 hp more ... ". Compliments.
Finally the duties thanks to those who contributed to the result: the already mentioned Ivan Crotti the drain, Boris Minoretti for swingarm and Enzo Cassetti, who gave a big hand to make some important changes.
Then Paul understands that I'm dying to hear the 'voice' of the Phoenix, although I do keep a certain 'aplomb': "Come on, let it be, otherwise how do we do with the neighbors?". Paul shrugs, turns the key and ... Well, I'll let you imagine the rest!
