Here's the cover for the swingarm pivot bolt. The D-cut has to be opened up slightly, and it still needs fitting.




The bottom of the cover has a skirt that covers the weld on the frame boss.

The titanium pivot nut flange was shaved 1mm, and 2mm was removed from the top of the nut. That way, the covers could be 3mm shorter.







The main problem is that I wanted these pieces to be ALUMINUM - not stainless. I only want the dome caps to be stainless, so I can gold nitride them.

Looks like I'm going to have them redone!

Got the bike together with the new tires on it, lowered the front, and got the rear pretty close to where I want it. The seat height looks good and the wheelbase is the same as the stock RZ.

Since I want the bike to be close to the final ride height and level - before finalizing the design for the rear caliper bracket - this is probably a good time to rebuild the rear shock and get some custom fork springs.

I think the '85 RZ 350 fork spring rate is .450kg/mm and the '07 GSXR 600 rate is .900kg/mm. I'm thinking about 750kg/mm, but not sure yet. (I weigh 156 lbs/71kg) Might need to go up on the rate because of the powerful front brakes.



Also ordered some preload adjusters and a left hand (lights/signals/horn) switch.

Just spoke with Mike Hardy at Traxxion Dynamics.




He said they have .76kg and .80kg fork springs for the GSXR forks.

Just ran out and got 2 scales so I can start estimating bike weight.

I was checking out their website, and they have pics of the employees posted. So, I took it one step further.

I thought it was funny. Even funnier if Mike finds this thread!



Gotta test fit these on the bike.

Easy guys...Traxxion Dynamics makes good products.

Otherwise, I wouldn't care.


The machine shop messed up again and put the D-cut on the inside of BOTH pivot bolt caps - but it's only needed on one. I thought it would be okay, but I left a small gap between the frame and cap, and light leaks through to the D-cut and interior of the cap.

Gotta make another one!!



I was going to make similar looking caps to go over the rear sets mounting bolts - but the allen heads would show and be flush in the center of the cap. Now, the plan is to recess the allen bolt, and make an identical cap (to the pivot bolt cap) that will screw directly into the face of the rearset plate, over the mounting bolts.

those covers look great. I hope you dont mind, I'm taking allot of inspiration from this thread for my buildoff bike. I'm not copying you by any means, but its really cool to see how far you take an idea of perfection. our minds seem to work allot alike....... and yet very different.

I plan on doing aluminum conical covers for all the frame holes. probably gonna have them gold Iridited for some contrast to the bare frame.
