I have been doing some R&D work in my lab (well thats what im paid for ) .
ok the risers i bought last week i never used as i found some stainless i have had for ages but only rememberd them after looking for something else ..i digress

right first of all may i say thanks to inchi55 (martin) for the top yolk ...
ok i stripped down the top plate i had on my bike and went back to original with a difference

yes SPACERS about 25mm 4 bolts M10 and about 80mm long

ok here is what it looks like

Image
the next photos are close ups

Image
and the last one is an idea i had this after noon ..
lets say we get a set of Mk 1 b12 bars and cut in the middle . Would we not have 2 halves ..... go with me on this how about putting the bar where the original ones are ??????
take a look at the idea .
Image
ok the idea is treat them as the original ones ( i am so trying not to use the word ) simples damm i said it

ok im going to run the bars for a week and try them then do a write up to tell you how i got on ..

thanks Your R&D bod Russell

ok these are what i used

Hi Russ.

Pics are nice and clear, but i am not too sure,
are you going to CUT the bars in half or fit them as a complete unit.... :?:

best of luck with work and have a gold star for the walk through and pics... ;)

ok they look great, so first questions.

1. how easy / bad is access to the ignition
2. cable length
3. lock to lock clearance
4. where did you source your parts
5. any adverse effect to rigidity of the top yoke / bars ( now they don't have the bracing of the fork tops)


thanks in advance

Looking good mate :)

I tried a set of bars cut in half, you'll need to file a groove in them for the Allen bolt to pass through.

yes i had thought of the groove i was going to do two grooves
1 at the off centre angle and one at the 38deg angle or like pull backs

1st question answered . ign . well my fingers got to it

2nd question cables dont know mine are long enough to start with
photo

Image
i had a top yolk from germany on it the forks never touched that either

3rd question lock to lock is fine .
Image

it misses the brake and clutch this photo is full lock

4th question i had the parts bought off ebay but they were ali
the ones i put on today are solid & stainless

5th question the rigidity is kept by using everything except the original bolts
im using M10's & the allen key is 8mm not 6 as on the original bolts oh and nylock nuts 17mm

hope this helps in the furtherance of the RF in some way

Regards Russ R&D bod

ok these ar what i used ..... the top set are solid and weigh quite a bit ...
the bottom ones are aluminium and not so heavy and may give rise to vibration

ok the set at the top are mine
and the set underneath are what i bought from ebay with the bolts totalled £24.00 plus postage

Image

as you can see much more sturdy

what im doing is the standard bars do a test on them as most people have still got a standard set up
so thats the 1st step
the second step is to test my theory out with the other bars . im in 2 minds weather to cut up the chrome set
or to cut up a set of renthal bars they have a rise on them but not as much as the chrome ones .


Image

and if the bars dont work and i want to change back for scarborough to my other set up i haven't messed up my good bars

Russ

by the way i have photos of how i extended my clutch line
