Fitting

Most of our carbon products replace the plastic OEM parts.

Fitting is extremely simple and takes a few minutes. You just need to:

  1. Remove the screws (if any) of the original part
  2. Remove the original part
  3. Fit our carbon part in replacement
  4. Set the screws back

The products with a cover fitting are a carbon coating to apply on the OEM part, by screwing or gluing them.

 

If the cover has some holes, to fit it you must:

  1. Unscrew the screws (if any) of the original part
  2. Place the item and screw it on the original, using the same screws (if any), or the ones provided with the item

 

The covers without holes, instead, have to be fitted with some double-sided tape:

  1. Cut some stripes of double-sided tape
  2. Glue them to the back of the cover, until the tips
  3. Glue the cover on the original part, putting pressure to ensure perfect adhesion

 

Note 1: You can use a few drops of silicone glue, alternatively to the double-sided tape.

Note 2: In case of engine covers (alternator cover, clutch cover, generator cover, pick-up cover) with no holes, you need to use only high temperature silicone glue or engine gasket paste

The dashboard covers for KTM 1290 Super Duke R are a particular part, because manufactured exclusively by Maxicarbon, based on the design of Mirco Sapio Design.

To fit the dashboard cover of the 2017-2019 models, you need to:

  1. Remove the two upper screws and the respective washers of the original dashboard
  2. Fit the carbon dashboard cover
  3. Set the two screws back, without the washers

For the dashboard cover of the 2014-2016 models, instead, you have to:

  1. Remove the two screws of the dashboard support
  2. Remove the three screws of the dashboard, and lift it from the support
  3. Set the two screws provided by Maxicarbon in the dashboard cover holes
  4. Insert the tab in the dashboard support, to fit the cover
  5. Mount the dashboard back and tighten all the screws (the use of threadlock is recommended)

All the parts are handmade, and, in case some difficulties prevent proper fitting or screwing, they can be fixed in a few minutes with a Dremel tool or a small file.

You need to:

  1. Detect the hole to widen to ensure proper fitting
  2. Slowly widen the hole with the Dremel tool
  3. Fit the part on the motorbike
