What was the project?
Stuart and Rory at PCC had identified an issue with the standard rear sets on the R nine-t when riding on track, the size and position of the rear sets were not giving enough ground clearance and were also not providing a great riding position. (See photograph) There are some alternatives on the market, but these were machined parts retailing at around £500-600 per set. The Werkrennen rear sets will be much more affordable than this due to the efficiency and ease of the laser cutting process.
How did Lasered Components get involved?
PCC needed to run off a couple of prototypes to test their design in real life and to ensure that the parts were a great fit to a couple of variations of the R nine-t. Lasered Components proved to be a good partner for this as there is no minimum order quantity, so PCC could get just three custom parts cut from their own CAD drawings and delivered within a week.
These parts were bolted straight onto their motorcycle to take to Brands Hatch to test. The first connotation wasn’t quite right, but the CAD drawings were quickly tweaked and the second batch soon provided an improved fit to the bike and to set the rider up in a better riding position. The rapid response and turnaround of the laser cutting service aided the speed and flow of the product development process as well as the production of the final parts ready for sale
