Rearsets Cad Rough Draft Opinons Please!!!!

Recommended Posts

SO AFTER MY WHEEL CONVERSION USING CBR F2 WHEELS DONE.AND TURNING OUT FAR BETTER THAN ANTICIPATED.I'VE DICIDED THE MILL MY OWN REAR SETS FROM SCRATCH.SO HERE'S THE ROUGH DRAFT. THERE ROUGHLY TO SCALE AND AS DETAILED AS MY $30.00 CAD PROGRAM WILL ALLOW.:)

SO MY THINKING IS BRINGING THE PEGS ABOUT 3" BACK FROM THE SWING ARM BOLT AND AT THAT HIEGHT.I TESTED THIS WITH SOME ALLTHEARD AND OLD BIKE PEGS TO GET A FEEL FOR FIT.THE MAIN MOUNTING POINT IS THE SWIN ARM BOLT. BECAUSE IT IS HOLLOW I CAN PASS ALLTHREAD THOURGH IT. AND ITS TH ONLY WAT TO GET THE PEGS EXATLY THE SAME PLACE ON BOTH SIDES.USING ALLENHEAD CAP NUTS ON THE REARSET BASE, THEN A TO SPACER TO BRING THE BASE TO THE RIGHT OFFSET TO LINE IT UP IN PLACE.I DREW THIS USEING BRASS BUSHINGS FOR THE THE ARMS TO MOVE ONTHE PEGS WITH.BUT THINKING I MIGHT TRY TO COUNTERSINK BALL BEARINGS IN THEM FOR BETTER PEFORMANCE.AND OF COURSE HIEM-JOINTS AND JAM NUTS AT ALL LINKAGE ENDS TO KEEP THINGS FULLY ADJUSTABLE.SO WITH THAT SAID. TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK.OPINOINS COMMENTS WELCOME.GOOD OR BAD .PLEASE CONSTURCTIVE CRITISISIM IS A MUST:foul: .OH YEAH ENJOY AND HERES A PIC OF THE TEST BED. :D:worthy::ride:

for the most part pretty bad a$$.i think the riding style would be good. it seems that it would put you further up on the seat for better agressive riding.do you think it would make for a more cramped position though if you taller of course. good job!!

Way cool idea. I've been trying to find some stuff I can make at work too.

On your model, #1 will need to be the same length as the factory piece to assure the brake plunger is aligned perfectly with the master cylinder.

What about #1 and #2 being different lengths? This will change the stroke

ratio a bit. Maybe they should be the same length? I'm no expert. Just

thinking out loud.

Take some pics of the whole process. I'd love to see it.

as far as the plunger angle it won't change becausei'm using a stock piece and machining down the other side to fit as far different lenght arms using this ratio gives firmer response with less movment distence at foot lever is about 1'1/2 inch and almost twice as responsive as stock and yes i've field tested this. great point though I hoped some one point this out.Iguss there is a few minds out there with an eye for mechanical detail.
