S1000RR Rocker Arm
It's a shame that some of the best looking motorcycling engines are
hidden behind plastic fairing panels, concealing the technological
masterpiece of engineering from the world. Given the thousands of hours spent
on developing the best combination of outright power, torque, fuel-efficiency,
reliability and light weight, these technological masterpieces are then encased
in aerodynamically proven fairings and only seen by the privileged few who
have the skill, knowledge and tools to work on them – like the trained BMW
mechanic or race tech.
So now, we're offering owners of the BMW S1000RR an opportunity to
keep a piece of this marvel of technology close to their hearts - a special
limited-edition rocker arm just like the ones used in their own engines to
transfer radial movement from the cam shaft into linear movement at the valves
to open and shut them.
This high-quality rocker arm is not your typical "run of the
mill" component. Exuding BMW quality and innovation, it is
approximately half the size of a "normal" motorcycle rocker arm
and is, in fact, even smaller than a rocker arm found in a Formula 1 car.
As a result of it's light weight, it helps the S1000RR engine achieve shorter
and more accurate valve timing. Furthermore, it helps the engine to reach
breathtakingly high RPM, allowing riders to experience seemingly unstoppable
amounts of power.
These quality-engineered and important S1000RR engine parts have
been given a special coated finish and come inscribed with the BMW roundel
and the S1000RR motif. Includes a 4 mm leather band and designed to be worn
around the neck, the rocker arm comes in a "welcome to Planet Power" branded
"Motorcyclists are a dedicated, passionate bunch, often preferring
to spend more time with their beloved machines than with their own children
or in some cases, their partners! It’s not just the riding experience of course,
as many spend endless hours in the garage or workshop, just cleaning, polishing
and tinkering with their machines in a way that car owners would never understand...."
