So let's suppose that I know a man who

Post by tony.mon »

.... has cad cam machinery at his disposal, and who is looking for short production run parts to manufacture, and already makes rear sets for TZ yams etc.

What parts would you think are best?
Rearsets are possible, as are paddock stand hooks, the sort that fit at the rear of the swingarm, not poking out sideways. Those could have the chain adjusters built in as well.

It would have to be a group buy, to make it worthwhile doing the programming.

I wonder if there are enough people interested in pretty trinkets to put up a small production run of, say, 25?

What other items might sell?

And no, I haven't costed these, I'm just after ideas for now.
It's not falling off, it's an upgrade opportunity.

Bottom yokes,
top yokes for flat bar conversion
Fork brace
Sprocket cover / clutch master mount
Adapters to mount radial caliper
And obviously rearsets, or ideally adapted plates so you could mount common current sport bike rearsets onto the Storm frame.


I don't need any of these anymore, but these are the things I would have wanted.

I think Al's pretty much covered it.... :thumbup:
i'd like some chunky yokes that still allow me to fit the hiss receiver.
maybe some thing like vfr clip-ons that wont mean cutting the fairings.

Al's rearset idea is one I've looked at. Either a big plate like the Harris ones or just the swingarm mount bit with a short plate to take rearsets from a CBR600 say. There's a bloke on the Superhawk forum made some up from stock rests cut down and with 10mm plate welded to them.

Underslung rear caliper bracket with endurance racing style rests for captive spacers would be cool. Mainly just for the bling.

Oil cooler and engine take-offs to accept swivel fittings and steel lines would be nice. Solve a problem for me and Fabio anyway.

Chain adjusters with built in paddock stand bobbins sound nice. I'd buy two of them...

Plus a fork brace.

Paddock stand bobins and some sort of bracket from the inside of the fairing for Ram bolt system for high mounted Sat nav.
Don't hassle me
I'll get there at some time
