I bit the bullet and ordered the akra rebuild kits. I'll try to take some pictures during the rebuild and post them up in case anyone is interested.

I agree it's a shame they don't last longer, but I don't know the history or how well they were taken care of. If the packing goes the cans will overheat and cook the resin out of the carbon fiber. Excited to see them all fixed up!
Well according to legend, any RC51 that is mounted with CF exhausts and actually gets ridden, for some apparent reason or another, the carbon fiber tends to break down more quickly with the v-twin engine...

Well i tried to order from ceramicfiberonline.com, but the smallest pack they have is 24"x300" and the shipping alone was $96! He actually told me to try Amazon or Mcmaster if I need smaller pieces so I looked and found 1x15.7x24 ceramic blankets for $18 each with free Prime shipping - guess i'll go that route
Sweet. Thanks for the details!
