A french company is selling what's looking like a nice BMW package (custom ECU) for pusher configuration (trike & autogyre) : Moteur VENTURA R1200S 3500€ for the PSRU though...
The german version: Take Off
I'm working on a BMW R1200 conversion for my kitfox.20191001_103342.jpg

I sent a email to Ventura asking about buying some components but never got a response. I'm most interested in their intake plenums and exhaust headers.

I'm thinking that it would be advantageous to find a French speaker preferably in Europe who would be willing to communicate with them and see if they would be willing to sell those components. Anyone interested in helping out?

Hey I can give them I call if you wish. I will need a bit more info about specific part number / model of plenum and exhaust header you would like.

Thanks I'll look and see if I can find part numbers. I found them last year but will have to find them again.

In the attached catalog page 12 has the exhaust system. I can't use their muffler with my setup so I would only be interested in the header pipes, but not sure if they would sell them separately.

Page 17 I think is the intake/ cooling plenums. I looked up the French word "ecopes" which means scoop, so I think that's what it means.

My engine is a 2006 and I can tell the engine they use is s different year so not sure if the plenums would work but fairly certain the exhaust headers will.
