Got the grade 5 titanium for the swingarm pivot bolt.

Took my drawings to the machine shop. Asked for a few differences to the head shape, head height, head diameter, head width, shaft length, thread length, and gun drilling.

Titanium bushings and collars for the link and relay arms.

The relay arm collars are for Super Oilite bushings. Still need new relay arm collars for needle roller bearings.



Test fit with the OEM parts:

Took a close look at the collars from my RZV frame.

Cracked, like the others. Cracks and pressure dings.

*





I've been told that collars made of 42CrMo4 and induction hardened to min 58HRC would be a good thing.

Where do I get some 42CrMo4 rod 3/4" diameter x 4" length?

And who does induction hardenening??

Trying hard to find prefabbed titanium front and rear axles, so I can match the other hardware.

Need axles for an '06/'07 Yamaha R6 (front and rear conversion).

Thought I found the front - but they pulled the plug on the project.
http://www.superbikeunlimited.com/pr...d-fjr1300.html

This guy makes R6 axles, but not sure about the '06/'07. He makes 7075 axles, but he said the titanium axles would be custom made - and he can't start until SEPTEMBER. No talk about cost, either. He said "the titanium buisness is crazy, out of control."
http://www.ti64.co.uk/yamaha-r6-7075-alloy-rear-axle/

Mettec makes a titanium rear axle, but I don't like it because it says "mettec.com".
http://store.mettec.com/product/1273/165

I don't want to pay for full custom, if I don't have to. Any ideas are welcome!

Sent an email a few days ago (Saturday) to check on the custom shock.

Ordered at the end of October - so it's been a good while.

Got a phone message today from Ted Porter at The Beemer Shop.

Turns out they NEVER BUILT THE FUCKING SHOCK!!!

Some bullshit about a misunderstanding in Germany.

Muthafucka... $654.39?? I would think they'll leave the logo off and suck your dick every day for a week at that price if you ask nicely.

Relay arm bearings came in from England.

Replacement OEM Japanese link bearings on top. Trial relay arm bearings on the bottom. The German bearings are much lighter and way more precision than the sloppy Japanese bearings.

Just got a price for the raw titanium.

$454 + shipping from onlinemetals.com. Just for this one piece.

Muthafucka is right!! Don't forget the gun drilling and machining costs.
