Welcome to the first edition of our BMS-built F042 kit bike. We hope you enjoy following our progress and encourage all curious minds to ask the technical staff at BMS any and all questions. The BMS F042 is sure to turn heads with both beauty and outright performance. We expect the bike build to take about a month and will document the progress every step of the way.
The F042 utilizes the stock Ducati 1000SS airbox and swingarm. Both the front and rear subframes are standard issue parts on the F042 that we anodized black. The triple clamps can be ordered to fit the exact dimension fork each customer chooses to use.
The F042 utilizes the Ducati 1000DS engine found in various Ducati factory model motorcycles.
We bead blasted, cleaned and prepped the engine cases and had them powder coated satin black to match the cylinder heads.
The specialy built Boulder Motor Sports racing engine was then installed into the chassis with the upmost care to ensure the integrity of all the parts matched perfectly.
The F042 kit comes with two options of exhaust, a stainless steel 2-1 system and a purpose built titanium open race exhaust system by Italian manufacturer Zard. The full titanium system was the material of choice for our F042 project.
The next step in the process of assembling this masterpiece was to install a comprehensive superbike data logging system and engine management hardware. With very little room to work with we decided to mount the Digitek dashboard, Nemesis ECU and GPS unit to the front subframe and the data logger and Lambda controller to the airbox.
The shock and fork sensors both required custom machined mounting brackets which we then had black anodized to match their surroundings.
The throttle bodies were fitted to the intake manifolds with new high flow injectors and a fuel pressure sensor as part of our electronic data logging system.
