I have now made a combo, tank riser. I decided to upgrade from using zinc coated steel, where I had to cut off the heads, drill for the clip, and then coat with rubber to keep away corrosion, to stainless steel threaded rods. They even have a 3mm countersunk allen head, to install. The risers themselves are 14mm. I have seen other risers out there, varying from 1/2" to 16 or 17 mm, but decided that 14 mm was a good number, high enough to be effective, but not too high to put undue stress on the front tank mounts. The risers themselves are made from 6061 aluminum.

I also have shorter bolts, for the cases where you would like to install these risers with out using a quick release kit..or, if you wish to install a steering damper that utilizes the tank mounts.

Of course, the standard quick release kits I make are still available....in either standard size, or if you already have non threaded tank risers.

Good stuff DougZ!

For any non Sv'ers out there, this is a cool dual purpose mod for the ever popular V twin, combining the DZ quick release facility with the front tank raisers to enhance engine breathing.

Coupled to the air-box mod which alone is worth 3-4bhp, this method increases cool airflow directly over the injector intakes to create a more dense fuel/air mixture and also provides an element of ram-air charging when travelling at speed.

It's a cool addition to the DZ range, and I'll shamelessly plug it cuz I know it works and doug is a guy worth supporting.

So If you got an SV, buy one now and notice the difference!

hows it look on your bike?? pics please
I don't have them installed on my bike yet..I just made them yesterday. I'll get some pics up as soon as I can.

BB: Thanks for the props....much appreciated. The kit will also work for any bike that the airbox pulls its air from under the tank....V twin or inline 4. Bikes that have ram air tubes, like the GSXR's, probably aint gonna help any. ;)

I might use something like this to add a tiny bit of room for wires. A quarter innch increase would do a word of good.
