    Re: Busa top yoke

    Well as can happen when fabricating new things. Bars arrived today and are the wrong ones. Clamp bolts are clocked out 180 so I've sent a message off the the supplier to see if he can get the correct pieces and then we can swap out the clamps. Gilles makes them it's just getting everyone on the same page that takes the time.

    Re: Busa top yoke

    So after numerous emails with Gilles in Germany and Lyle at BellissiMoto in vegas we have found the right bar setup. The bike it fits is a 2012 Suzuki GSXR 1000. So new clamps are on order and Lyle giving me straight across swap.

    Making a cal out for anyone interested. Cost per copy will be even 300. 1 is already spoken for so 2 are up for grabs if anyone is interested. They'll be finished in bare aluminum so that you can have them powder coated. Painted or anodized to your color.

    Re: Busa top yoke

    Getting closer. May have to downsize the riser sections I bought these for a very good price but they may be a bit tall. Need to get the hat color matched now too. Torn between powder coating and painting them myself. Leaning more to the painting just because I enjoy the fact that it's my handiwork when it's all said and done.

    Are those risers 100mm (or possibly longer)? I initially had 100's (bought at very good price as well) and whilst they worked they were a bit long, I've now fitted 80's which work better. One word or 'warning', with those bars the angle that the hose ends come out of the reservoirs is rather important since the hoses will try to either rub on the front of the bar/fork clamps or take up strange angles/rub when the bars are on full lock. I've had these issues when re-using my longer hoses that I had made up. Initial fit (with 100's) was perfect but when I was adjusting the riding position recently with the now fitted 80's I realised a slightly different end on the hoses would have been better .....

    Or you could do as I have done and set up an oven in your garage and powder coat 'stuff' yourself! Great fun and I'm really impressed with the results I am achieving and I have the added satisfaction of 'all my own work'. What's more, with your own kit you can tackle small parts that would never be economic if you passed them out to a shop.

    Re: Busa top yoke

    Yes they are 100's and thinking the same Duck. The only reason I may keep them is I'm not really sure where the new hat position will have them ending up. the 100 comes out too almost 4 inches 80 is just over 3 so I may drop to 60. That's the cool thing about the vario's is the modular adjustment. I'm also looking at the possibility of a radial MC for both so that I can tip the levers down more. My wrist placement is a bit unconventional in that i want to lay my fingers down more pointing towards the front axle not parallel to the road.

    I have thought about that but part of my problem is that the colors I am looking at and the outlay for the equipment. I have the paint guns and I am thinking it may be easier to get the effect I'm looking for (Gold anodize) with those. It won't be as durable but for about what I estimate at 125.00 I can cover everything.

    Re: Busa top yoke

    Sounds like you have things sorted beestoys, I was only joking about the powder coating kit it took me some time to find top quality kit at a reasonable price but now I'm hooked, shame you are not close or you could have called in and carried out the work yourself with the only cost being the powder.

    If as you say you want to have your fingers pointed down the angle of the banjo becomes very important, it was when I started to angle my fingers down a touch from the parallel position that I encountered my 'problem'. As you say with bars that are so adjustable you can sort most things, but changing the length of the 'upright' has in my case caused the 'angle of dangle' of the hoses to be a problem (now overcome) but if I was doing this again I would settle on the length of the 'upright' before sorting the hoses ..... thought it worth a mention.

    Re: Busa top yoke

    LOLnoted. I had thought of doing the powder coat as well myself but I already have fridge out there and space is at a premium with 3 other birds occupying space lol.

    Yes when I got these I wasn't sure if the would be to to tall or not. They as you have stated are definitely to tall for the stock lines. But thank you very much for the heads up on the exit angle for the new lines. I do like the angled top of the stock Busa masters. it makes the install look a lot cleaner. But once i start tipping these a remote radial master may be a better option. I have been told using the Kawasaki ZX masters may be a good option. I am also going to look into the later years of the GSXR and see if they are remote as well. Either one will give me the option of down tipping the levers to a more natural angle. I have a hydraulic shop nearby that has stated they can build me any line I want using the stock fittings or new as I see fit. This will prove to be very beneficial for the rear when I delink as I can use the unique compound curved rear fitting again. I have looked and test fitted a Galfer Kit for one of my customers that bought a cruise control. the thread is in here discussing the minor issue and therein problem with the fitting angle on the rear MC. Because of the compound angle Mr Honda used most if not all of the aftermarket kits have to remove the factory twist limiter stop built into the factory MC. The shop I am using only charges 15.00 per factory fitting and the have a process that allows them to reuse the fitting. The lines are pressure tested and guaranteed to 5000 psi so I am confident that will not be an issue. it also allows me to spread out the cost doing lines one or a pair at a time as needed.
