I missed the pics the first time around :(
So now i see them :D
I realy like the idia ( Love the shapes you got goin there too ) and would be interested in one. On both my gixxers there is only one stock one left. both front and rears. Would you possibly make a rear ?

that was the one thing we did a couple years ago but it never worked out as you need every part proofed
by the local authority (TUV).

and than we had an other version of it in mind but after the first disaster we just stop work on it

The idea was to take a solid round piece of acrylic glass milled down to 12mm
and cut an outside screw thread M12x1.25 on it and cut it into slices of 1.5mm.
The resi got cut a M12x1.25 internal screw thread and pasted
the acryli disc with a oil resistant loctite glue into it

That's a cool idea. That would look really clean actually. And a lot less extra machine time making the oval hole, machining a ledge for the glass to sit on and taping it for 2 screws. etc. If you don't mind Sven, I may snag that from you.

Why not just machine a cover for the existing resv. and epoxy that in place...

Cause I don't want to make cheesy metric cruiser parts.

Plus, I hate how bulky and obtrusive the stock cups are and I hate the hoses running all over the place. It's been done too. and it's way over priced.

no offense Sven. Those actually look pretty good. Hell of a lot better then the piece of tin foil cobra offers that just slaps around the stock cup.

I don't feel offended at all and I don't like the covers either but it was the only way
with this fuc.... TUV to stay streetlegal and out of trouble with the cops

I'd be interested in one as well. Those designs are sweet, esp. the first one.:rock: The Price is right on too.

after about 15 min of searching i found the one I would want for the rear. Im not sure if most bikes sport the right master or not....Instead of just posting the picture here is the ebay link, ive seen them posted for gixxers and the like from the same company, but im not paying 170 plus shipping...I can deal with 60-70, but for the cost of the aluminum, and labor for someone that has the equipment, 170 plus shipping is outta the question.

Picture if you dont want the ebay link

The rear brake pc would be really tough to make. You'd have to do at least 2 operations on a CNC for the base and if you didn't have a live lathe 2 more on the lid. That's 3-4 setups avg 1.5 hours each so before you start cutting you are looking at a days work.

That's where the cost is coming from. Now if you could spread the cost of setup over say 100-200 pcs the price would drop...

Not trying to sway anyone, but thats the company that makes the one you listed, if this doesnt end up happening I might pick up one of theres, they are reasonably priced...
