Looking good!!! Please put me on the list also.

Aurel,

From what I can see, I don't think the sidestand wiring will be long enough.

In.

Looks like the most viable solution so far.

The wires for the switch will not reach to where the kickstand will be. You will either need to disable it, extend it, or in the case of the new bikes get the hall effect bypass thingy. Mine has been disabled for years and removed from the stand but I mounted it back up for the prototyping so I could account for any clearance issues that it might cause with the bracket.

I just returned from the fab shop, gave them instructions as to the minor modifications that are needed to the bracket, and instructed them to build rev 3 out of 0.250 cold rolled steel. We decided not to put any gussets on just yet until after we see if there is any flex. And then we will determine the best placement.

He knows that I am going out of town next Thursday so he is going to do his best to get the next rev in my hands before then. Otherwise I'm sorry to say that it is going to be the first week of August before I will be able to get back on this project.

I'll keep you all posted, thanks.

Two thoughts:

1 - with the gussets, you may well not need to go as thick as .250

2 - given how wide the piece is when viewed from the side, it may be a lot more astehtically pleasing with a few nice holes cut out of it in the middle (think of what it would look like of touratech did it).

Keep up the good work. You'll sell a million of 'em if you get it right!

Thanks, I could have gone with 0.187 but 0.250 just feels better. Especially when I hear people are pivoting the bike on the kickstand. I'm hoping that the thicker material will not require any gussets, but only the next test will tell.

As for the holes, I though of that too but I do not want to create any points of weakness. I thinking that this thing has to be strong as possible since it's got a lot of weight on it. Hopefully the black powder coating will make it blend in a little bit.

May'be this

Ask the fab shop about dimple die's. They are the hole punches that funnel shape the edge of the holes. Suppost to make the steel stronger. They look good too.
