=======================================================================================

 

UPDATE #8 (Jul 28)

MWR tracking info has been updated and shows them now arriving Wednesday!

 

=======================================================================================

 

UPDATE #7 (Jul 22)

MWR Shipped!  Due to arrive to us on Monday!  Whoo hoo!!!

:)

========================================================================================

 

UPDATE #6 (Jul 15th)

Just got word that the MWR Filters are shipping to us Monday or Tuesday of next week!!!  Not too much longer now!

 

========================================================================================

 

UPDATE #5 (June 19th)

 

I was waiting on tracking numbers from Europe before I posted another update to the original thread, but because I've had people PMing me asking, I figured I'd post the status of things as they sit now:

Gilles:  We have received about 70% of our Gilles order, but still waiting on the rest to come. 

MWR:  It is supposed to be shipping next week to us.

Rapid Bike (for those who also ordered these):  Expected to be here in the US by Jul 1st. 

I understand everyone's frustration.  COVID-19 has really hit Europe hard.  Most of these manufacturers are operating at 50% capacity, and the workers in place have to main a 1.5 meter distance from each other.

I think the lead times are highlighted more with certain group buys, because the structure of a group buy, and the reason I'm able to do these incredible prices means I have to have a minimum amount of people to make it cost effective to offer in the first place - which sometimes means longer lead times because we have to wait until the minimum amount of people commit, and then when I do place the order, its usually in giant quantities that take the manufacturers longer to produce.

This, combined with the global COVID-19  situation has made it frustrating for many.  I understand all to well.  I personally have some parts on order for myself but when they arrive I'm actually going to use them to fulfill customer orders since I can't ride my Tenere until Oct due to a recent surgery.

At these incredible prices, there isn't enough margin to ship items as they arrive, so we wait until everything is here for a customer, and ship all at once.

I really appreciate everyone's patience with all of this, and hope the wait times don't tarnish your experience or actual service you are getting from BellissiMoto, as we are also waiting for all these products as well.

As soon as I have more info I'll pass it on.   With all I wrote above, it looks like we should be able to start fulfilling everyone's order in about two weeks 

Please hang in there everyone, it'll be worth the wait!

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me.

 

========================================================================================

 

UPDATE #4

Gillies - The ACM Ti Axle Nuts are all part of the last shipment which is currently on its way to us.

MWR - The main reason fort the delay are the frames for the airfilters.  They had stock which was gone in a few days when everyone found out the Tenere 700 was the same fitment as the FZ-07, and then I came along and ordered 50 pieces.  They had to order new frames and that will take a bit before they get them, and now, specially now with this crisis , all factories work at 50% because they need to have their employees more then 1,5 meters otherwise they can close the factory.

The first batch of frames is just about ready, and should take care of everyone who ordered.  MWR asked me to "please be patience in this exceptional times ,,,,, nothing is normal at this moment."

 

==========================================================================================

UPDATE #3

 

Quick heads up on status...

 

I know many of you have asked me when your items will arrive.  Just wanted to let everyone know I've e-mailed all the companies involved in our Group Buy for status updates, and I'll let everyone know the outcome as soon as I find out.

 

We've placed ginormous order with these companies, much bigger than normal.  It's taking a bit for them to fill, and with COVID-19 it isn't helping.

 

I'll keep everyone posted as soon as I have info :)

 

Thanks for your patience.

 

- Paul

=========================================================================================

UPDATE #2

The Group Buy has ended.  Parts have been ordered from their respective manufacturers, and will be shipped out to customers respectively upon arrival.  Thank you everyone!

======================================================================================

 

UPDATE!!!

Minimum number of participants met!!! I'll be sending invoices starting tomorrow, but more can join in if they want, until the group buy is over. 

==========================================================================================

Hello everyone!!!

 

The MWR Air Filter and Air Box Cover GROUP BUY is back!!!!!!

This one is different than the first Group Buy special, so not only is it going to be on MWR's Air Filter or MWR's Air Box Cover, but any combo of the two!!!

 

Before we get to the incredible pricing, lets break down on what's on offer:

 

MWR Air Filter and MWR Air Box Cover:

 

The MWR Air Filter and Air Box Cover is a great addition to your FZ-07.  MWR filters are used in World Motorsport, and have won with the Factory Kawasaki's in World Superbike last 5 years in a row.  They are also used in the wining Factory Yamaha and Suzuki MotoAmerica Superbike that won the last 3 years, as well as many other teams around the world.

 

The MWR filter has been testing against the best paper filters in the world, and beat them hands down.

 

Well, what about DNA's combo?  It might be a paper filter, but they have a Filter Cover to go with it.

 

Sure they do, I've had BOTH on my FZ-07.  The MWR filter alone with the DNA cover, made .6 hp more than the DNA combo with the existing DNA tune I had.  When tuned specifically for the MWR filter (since it breaths much better), it made 1.1 hp more.  That wasn't even with the MWR Air Box Cover, as it wasn't released until after I did my dyno testing.

 

So that's 1.1 hp MORE than the leading paper filter, which is supposed to give 1-2 hp over stock to begin with.  Depending on the components you have (slip-on, full system, engine management, hi octane gas, tune, etc.), I'd expect you to gain anywhere from 1.5-3.0 hp from MWR's Filter and Air Box Cover.

 

So not only did the MWR filter outperform the best paper filter on the market, it's also anti-flammable, and has a matching Air Box cover to go along with it, which has a leg up on the competition.

 

MWR's Air Box Cover design is genius, and incorporates 3 key features over the competition:

 

1)  The opening of the Filtercover is not only radioused to allow smooth airflow into the airbox, it also matches the square opening of the MWR Air Filter, MAXIMIZING airflow entry as well.
 
2)  This new design is half the thickness of the competition, so instead of having a thick piece of material and having to mill two of the corners down, MWR's Filtercover does the exact opposite and is half the thickness, but builds up the two corners where needed.  This saves weight, and also allows the air going into the opening to reach the filter sooner, rather than the double thickness of the competition which restricts incoming air from reaching the filter material.

3) Price.  MWR's Air Box Cover is less expensive than the competition, even at full retail.

 

Before we get to the special pricing, here are some pictures of the MWR Air Filter and Air Box Cover:

Special pricing is as follows:

 

MWR Air Filter:  Retail is $87.00, GROUP BUY Price - $69.00
 
MWR Filtercover:  Retail is $68.00, GROUP BUY PRICE Price - $54.00

MWR Air Filter/Filtercover combo:  Retail is $155.00, GROUP BUY PRICE Price - $116.00

 

I need just 5 people to commit for this special pricing.  Shipping is FREE for US customers, $35 flat rate for international customers.

 

You know we aren't gonna stop there!  This is BellissiMoto!  And we're known for our group buys!

 

We are also offering the Gilles Titanium Axle Nut!!!

 

As many Yamaha FZ-07 owners already know (it takes the same OEM rear axle nut), the stock rear axle nut has been prone to causing problems...the two large metal flanges that act as the locking mechanism sometimes jam up on the threads of the axle and almost weld themselves to it.  When trying to loosen it for tire changes, chain adjustments, etc., either the threads strip, or the axle block that holds the axle in place breaks.
 
The issue is with those large metal flanges on the stock nut. The solution is to use a different nut - The Gilles ACM Titanium Axle Nut.
 
One of the lightest axle nuts on the market, the ACM Titanium Axle Nut by Gilles is one of the safest too. The patent pending pin-lock safety technology secures the ACM Titanium Axle Nut in place, making it bomb-proof while allowing it to be loosened faster than a split pin secured nut. It weighs just 20 grams, which is less than 3/4ths of an ounce.
 
It's design is inspired and derived by factory racing teams, and has been used by professional racers such as Cal Crutchlow to become a World SuperSport Champion. 
 
A product of award-winning precision engineering makes the ACM Titanium Axle Nut TUV and ISO certified, and will no doubt give your bike that ultra-premium look. 
 
 
M18x1.5
 
Material: Titanium ti6alv4
 
Ultra lightweight at 20 grams (less than 3/4ths of an ounce)
 
Innovative pin-interlock security w/ high locking characteristics
 
Perfectly compliments chain adjuster kits by Gilles Tooling
 
Plastic-pin accomodates thread form and locks with friction
 
Simple security through interlock system
 
Easy assembly with a Included hex tool

S9FWG6Ul.jpg.6c271fad3267246e96cc1438c9164c99.jpg

 
You can see the locking mechanism here...a plastic threaded insert comes out and locks against the threads when you tighten the set screw on the face of the nut.  Pretty ingenious.  I've had mine on and off over 50 times now without issue.  
 
 
Because the shipping cost is getting absorbed into a much bigger order, I'm able to pass the savings on to everyone and offer it at a fantastic price.
 
 
Retail is $80.00, GROUP BUY PRICE Price - $60.00

 

Shipping for this item is FREE with purchase of any MWR item above.  Otherwise, for US customers it's $10, for International customers, it's $35 flat rate.

 

I'll start the list, and populate it with user's screen name as appropriate:

 

1.  @mjh937 - Gilles Ti Axle Nut - PAID

2.  @crazycd1 - MWR combo - PAID

3.  @Vargasmarco22 - MWR combo - PAID

4.  @cornerslider - Gilles Ti Axle Nut - PAID

5.  @Tony9020 - MWR combo - need e-mail address, full name, and shipping address

Minimum number of participants met!!! I'll be sending invoices starting tomorrow, but more can join in if they want, until the group buy is over. 

6.  @Kurt - MWR combo - PAID

No other requirement per se.  It wouldn't hurt to add fueling with tune, etc, but it's not mandatory.

 

Your bike will run just fine with the MWR Air Filter :)

Please dont mention other vendors in this vendors thread! They pay for this section, and this is a thread where they are offering you a discount. Not cool.

Sorry.

I didn't think Paul had flashes or maps for the products they sell since they aren't in the business of dyno tuning. If they did, i'd get a flash from them so was just asking his opinion since I'm sure others would want to know. I'll shut up now since Paul and I have been talking offline.

Absolutely.  It takes the place of the stock axle nut, so if your sliders/spools work with the OEM nut, it'll work with this one :)

Me either!  Haha.  Possibly because many have already bought these items.  I do have an individual who may be on the list, but is inquiring about other, non-group buy items as well, so you may see the list populated with one person soon :)

I just shared this on our MT07 facebook group.   I have noticed that a lot of the newer Mt07 owners buy a lot of junk from Aliexpress, and then post mad when it breaks two weeks later. 

Guys and gals, this stuff is not what you would find on Ali express.

I think you may have nailed it Paul. I was fortunate to get in on the last group buy. The rear axle nut is a must by the way 👍. Take advantage of this if you haven’t already 😎

Okay, I was on the fence about getting the axle nut as so far I have not had any trouble with the stock nut (I have not had it off many times though).  I figure if I have problems with it in the future I will wish I had spent $60 now, so why not.  I already have the air filter coming so I do not need another one of those. 
 

TL;DR: One axle nut please.
