Thanks. Just got word that the laser-etching is all done and parts are getting shipped back to us today. Should have pics of the finished products in a few days. Included in this first batch of parts are:

1) universal underbar stabilizer mounts

2) KTM underbar stabilizer mounts

3) c-clamp outer handguard mounts


The pinchy outer handguard mounts are next in line, and we should have those parts finished/available in a few weeks.

Good timing. Have actually been talking with Xtrig about adapting those preload adjusters to some other applications. Thanks for the heads-up on the 690's.

Well done Jesse, Rob, Tyler,

Looks like great stuff. Glad to see you are still working on the Deuce Jesse, it has been a while since I went in to check the progress, guess I have some catching up to do.

Best wishes on your venture!

First Class swag / upgrades. Good work! Especially like the idea for the foot pegs. Hopefully you'll have fitment for a couple of my bikes

Spent the weekend working on the GatosBros website, and it's finally up and running. Sort of. We should have products in-stock and ready to ship by Tuesday or Wednesday. So the shopping cart isn't 'live' yet, but please take a look. Also created a facespace page. Do you like us?

The page looks good so far.

Typically Simplisity is what people SAY they are looking for, but without a lot of links it gives off a perfunctory air of insignificance. Not trying to be rude, I am just saying...

Hey could you post up some photos of your parts on bikes? For me, at least, it is helpful to see what I am looking at in place.

The site looks like you are off to a great start! I hope you do really well with it!

Regards,

Spent 10yrs running a small graphic design studio and we designed/built a lot of websites. Ironically, I can't afford to be my own client, as we've put all our time and money into developing and manufacturing these products. So for now, that little website is about the best we can manage. We'll have pictures of production parts by the end of this week. Videos by next week. Can take pictures of parts that we've been testing on our bikes if you'd like to see anything in particular in the meantime.

GatosBros website is up-and-running and we've got parts in-stock, ready to ship. Working on pictures/videos. Having a little bit trouble with lighting, the colors look a lot better in real life and the parts are all the same shade of orange.

Finally got some more pictures of the universal steering stabilizer mount. Can you guys see how the width and offset are adjusted? The flat-sided cams on the bottom determine the offset, which is adjustable in 1mm increments, from 5-20mm. The round cams on top control the width, which is infinitely adjustable, from 94-106mm. Patents Pending.

What's the absolute minimum height (mm please ) you add? I've got rox risers and fat bars and have next to no extra length on my wires and cables left but do want a damper. Scott's suggested the over the bar types, but I really prefer the under version.

KTM is 23mm and universal is 24mm. An underbar stabilizer mount could/should replace those risers though.
