Supposedly, the problem is that the Collar on the "Special Bolt", and the "Special Nut", can move slightly in the Frame holes. One solution is to make these 3 parts, and the Relay Arm Bushings, all precision fit together.

Since I'll be making all these parts out of titanium, I'll try to keep the tolerances as tight as possible - which I would have done anyway.

Can't buy that titanium Special Nut because it's probably the OEM size and needs a couple more thousandths on the O.D. to fit snugly into the Frame hole.

Stripped the bearings, seals, and grease fittings from the suspension link.

Will start smoothing and polishing it next.

Hit the link with the polishing wheel, but it looked too rough.



Started smoothing it, but have a long way to go.

Having some difficulty sourcing a 1.25 inch x 13 inch grade 5 titanium rod for the swingarm pivot. Found a 12, but not a 13. I can get it - but I'm looking for a REASONABLE price.

I already ordered titanium for the collar on the special bolt, 2 link bushings, 2 relay arm collars, and 2 relay arms.

Still need to measure and draw up the new collar and special nut, and get a long titanium bolt for the modified special bolt.

The machine shop said they've machined oilite many times - so that's good news.

Not sure what 6AL-4V is, but this guy has it in 12" and longer. Maybe ask if he'll cut you a 13" piece.

This is the only titanium source I've looked when looking for tubing, so I don't know if his prices are reasonable.

Thanks! Was just going to contact Titanium Joe - and the first place I contacted just got back to me. Tiger Metals Group has a 1.25" x 13" for a good price ($102 usd).

6AL-4V is grade 5 titanium and is the good shit. Grade 2 is also common and is easier to machine - but not nearly as strong.

Titanium arrived for the collars and bushings.

Includes 10 pages of Test Reports, Compliance Reports, Ultrasonic Inspection Reports, and Certifications.




Of course, they could have thrown in any chunk of metal with the nice paperwork.

No fancy paperwork. Just a solid brick of 6AL-4V for the new relay arms.

A couple of CAD images of the parts I'm working on. These are RZ500 parts, not RZV500 parts, but they're similar. The RZV Roller will have a converted R6 swingarm.
