i bought the top tripple clamp, and marked out where i was having to saw the thing, and a lot of fileing afterwards; i also had to reroute the clutch/choke cable, i am waiting for the shop to open as i need 6 bolts about 70/75mm long to go through the bars/spacers and in to the lower clamp, i also made a joining plate that bolts on the top tripple clamps, this is it so far.
You seem to of dropped the forks down the top yoke (they are not triple tree's, thats a yank term) you have altered the rake and the trail of the front forks, expect the bike to handle like a tea tray due to the changes. have fun odie
hi, i have not moved the forks in the top york there was a line all the way round the forks and i have left it as it was , what i have done is to put the second top york on top of the old one. with a pice of metal on the bolts at the front, then i used 60 mill bolts ( where the scrwdrivers are fitted) to go through the handle bars and the spacer (the top clamp i cut up )in to the standard top clamp so in all it is fixed in place with 6 bolts with lock thread on all bolts,so far in two days i have done over 80 miles with no problem,or any bolts comming loose, will post the finished one,s tomorrow, ( friday ) john ( outlaw )
I actually have an extra top yoke from my donarbike :-) So cutting the mid section out of top yoke shouldn´t be a problem, and thereby making two spacers/packers.
But does the "top yoke pieces" bolt on top of the existing top yoke? or do I need to grind the backside of the "top yoke piece" to make an even surface between the "top yoke piece" and the existing top yoke?
And if the "top yoke piece" doesnt need any mod (other the sawing the top yoke into two pieces), then I just need to buy som extra long bolts that will go through extra material ?
