front caliper adaptor plate and wheel spacers

Recommended Posts

Nice job rolyrev.

Mine was made the old-fashioned way. Starting with offering up cardboard to make a template, followed by a plywood prototype. Then the final version was cut and drilled by hand, took to my mates workshop for milling the step.

Wheel spacers were drawn up by working out the centre lines and offering up with stacks of washers.

You could try this yourself if all else fails.

OK,  I've had five minuets to look at this.  I have just taken the drawing and dimensioned it.  Made it a .JPG and attached it.

Nicely done thanks, and now Im convinced i was not missing anything..... there was only one aspect view in that file yes?
No second view with dimensional data for the relieve cuts, material thickness, ect.

Hi,  

That was it, no notes or other reference's to thickness.  I would say that the file has been used to run a cutter of some description water / laser.

Absolutely correct.. The file came from a shop that laser cut parts .. 
Pretty sure all the the caliper alignment brackets Ive seen have some off set to them as well..either cast in or machined in.

So either this specific application only needed the caliper moved in a single axis and thus cold be made from flat plate, or we are not seeing the second file where the part was machined after being cut

This text pulled from the web may tell you how thick the material needs to be:

"However, you can right click and save the dxf file here to have your own disc adapter plate laser cut from 4mm mild steel plate if you take this plate to a laser cutting service. If you need the dxf file for the caliper adapter plate for the Suzuki or Yamaha conversions, right click and save the dxf file here and have this cut from 6mm mild steel plate. If you want to have a try and manufacturing your own adapter plates, you may need to work out a way to convert the dxf files into a more usable format for your purposes (dxf files are created for Autocad-style programs). "

So the caliper adaptor is 6mm thick.

The disk adaptor is 4mm thick

Cheers

John

Hi all ... Just going thru the process of motarding my 2000 DRZ 400e and I'm in need of the adaptor plate for the front brake caliper and the spacers for both axles please, does anyone have drawings with dimensions so i can make them or even better know where I can buy them from ready to go??

I have a set of CBR250RR wheels ready to fit, just need these final bits and then job done !

cheers JK

i went through the motarding process on my wr450 using the cbr250rr wheels, i know its not a drz400 but the process is the same i got all my spacers and adapters made here in thailand as labour costs in australia are ridiculously expensive. i got a disc adpater made up and used a factory gsxr100 brake rotor which is 310mm . if you need anything made up let me know and i could ship it to you

Hi People I'm just new in this forum...I was wondering if anyone has the autocad file of the  caliber support for a motard conversion ( wr450f)

I m using cbr 250 r mc19 wheel set with the 310 mm front size disk. Everything I found online I can't really visualise the content

Check out the links on page one of this thred, you may find what you are looking for.  Most likely the files will be in DXF format but Autocad should open them.

      Hi,
      I have a 2003 DRZ (actually a KLX400) and the head tube bearings are shot.  I ordered a new set to install but I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations on other parts I should replace while I have the front disassembled.  I was thinking about new rubber fork protectors, but are there other things that wear out on the DRZ front ends that you can only get to when disassambled?
      I also broke off a replacement key that I got for the steering lock.  I must have been made of cheap pot-metal.  Should I just remove the whole lock mechanism?
      Any tips or tricks for getting the old bearings out and the new ones in would be welcome!
      Thanks!

      Hey Guys,
      I recently bought a 2003 DRZ400S and thought it would be a good idea to check the valves clearance etc . I timed the engine on TDC with the magneto mark aligned as per the manual but I find the cam timing slightly odd. The arrows pointing upward are on the 1st and 15th pin as they should but with the magneto timing mark aligned they are not perfectly straight. Same goes for the arrows that should be parallel to the cylinder head casing. Is this normal or should they be absolutely perfect ?

      My bike was stolen, so I'm liquidating my spare parts. 
      I took this off my S and replaced it with an SM unit so my speed would be more accurate with the street wheel setup.  I no longer need this spare.  I greased it regularly and it was in good working order when I removed it.  Included is only what is pictured.  Cable not included.
      Suzuki part number:  54600-29F00
      buyer pays shipping.
