Testing my high front guard over the next few days.

I was pretty keen to see/feel how the high guard is on the bike and if the obstruction has any impact on air coming up through the steering column hole.

So, along with my MacGyvered ABS sensor mount I decided to MacGyver the brake lines into position to allow full wheel articulation.
Once I have had a chance to play with this I will re-fit the dual disc 21" wheel and add the second set of lines.

I'm liking the look so far but will be better when I locate the right mudguard and fit the fork protectors.





Not everyones cup of tea, but then, it's not for everyone......

Wasp, how much of an improvement was the Ohlins susp ? Thats quite the set up. I still want one of these bikes. I opted for the Tiger first time out, I still see this bike in my future. Used ones should be popping up soon enough. Awesome bike brother, love it.

Not sure cannonman. I get a lot of email each day and it's often hard to put a real name to a forum handle..
Did you send to greg@waspworks.com ?
Shoot me another one and state the cannonman handle on it as well.
All colors are in stock.

Greg.

Checked hi and low Mark, but no email. Wouldnt have a clue why? I even checked the junk box.

I have sent an email to your address above so let me know if you receive that.

Greg.

EDIT: I just searched "landmark" in my in box and I see where we have communicated last week but did not get anything this morning.
We'll sort it out I am sure.

Greg.

Hi Future Ten.
Sorry mate, I must have missed your post above.

Ohlins rear is great. Has so much more fine adjustability (but long range) either side of optimum.
Has actually exacerbated front end short comings in heavy offroad. I new they were a problem and couldnt tune them out without new springs and physical valve changing so thought I would wait till the rear was done then look at the front.
My mate Bargenator has done his forks and seems very happy with them so I will check his work.
Barge has Wilbers rear and he says that is really good too.

Greg.

More front guard development

Still playing with different front guards.
Having had the Polisport Supermoto installed, it gave me a pretty good idea of what style and direction I wanted to head in. More importantly though, it gave me a sample guard that I could take in-hand around the different bike shops and hold up against the multitude of differing shaped guards.
I found a Suzuki one and I felt really sure it would do the job, so I borrowed the guard off a fellow inmate (lives down in the smoke) and stuck it on temporarily tonight.

Long story short - I have found my new front guard.
I'm love'n the look and will set about laser cutting and pressing a new mount for it.
I think I will even include a top alloy stiffener strap for that old time custom nostalgia touch.











There is still a big job ahead designing the fork leg protectors to look and function right, and to layout the brake lines just right, but I think this is such a worthwhile project. I recon this is exactly how Yamaha should have offered this bike. It just gives so much more protection from sand/dirt/mud/wind flying up the steering column hole.
I will be able to get out for a ride tomorrow so i'm really looking forward to feeling how it works.

I'll get some pics from further away tomorrow when I am out in the field.

I have been hanging out to do this mod for a long time - and i'm really enjoying it..

Greg

Looks good, but, you need a nice blue fender. I like the one from the WR250F.

Meh... I dunno about blue. Front of the bike's all black.
Fact remains, the Yammy (and most others) dont fit the way I want them to. Has to be set waaaay to low or it hits the faring in 193 different places.

The rear is Karoo T (2) but the front is an old half worn 90/90-21 Bridgestone trailwing.

haleluja
woody



it started with my stone-age sketch,,supplemented by wasp-man's Solid Works wizardry


here's the lay of the land,,,the object was to take the 3mm/.120'' 6061-T6 plate and convert it into an adapter that would hold the OEM sensor ring circa .06-.070'' from the pick-up mounted in the sensor holder..


here's cam's future hub[he doesn't know it yet,,but i do ! ],,, having the lip machined where the sensor adapter will rest to give us the proper clearance down the road


drilling a pilot hole for the 1/2'' drill


here's the 1/2 hole being drilled to accept a my material holder for the lathe work



that's wasp-man's new double disc hub having the step machined at the correct depth


4.444'' is the diameter that his new adapter plate needs to be machined down to in order to fit perfectly within it's new boundaries



these are the 6906 2RS bearings before and after we re-pack them with hi speed water-proof wheel bearing grease,,FYI the bearings were virtually absent of grease...


waspman's hub being preheated prior to bearing install


waspman's [left to right] sensor holder,,,sensor adapter holder,,,and the sensor ring
and below them the oem bearing and sensor holder spacers and the Superlite version of the same for the ST hub


getting ready to mount the sensor ring


Voila,,www presents to you the completed product = ABS/TCS capability that works

PS...if it needs to have a bit closer gap we can add shimming material under the sensor ring or increase gap by adding a shim under the transducer. ,,i don't have a factory spec,,just went off of Wasp-mans and my readings...ie his = .736''/18.7mm and mine=.720''/18.29mm ,,wasp-mans black hub ended up circa .726/
