Re: 3 degree offset headstem bearings for Yamaha?

Would anyone have the outside dimensions of the Harley and Yamaha cups? Unless I'm mistaken, the bearing and headstem of Andrew's XJ and my XV are almost identical to the Harley numbers I could find; Yamaha: Upper: 25 x 47 x 15 Lower: 30 x 55 x 17 190 mm long Harley (numbers I could find): 26x47x15 ...

Re: Viagra Forward controls

You'll need to support your mounts from three points, not just the front engine bolt ( A number of instiances I know of the lug breakding off) Use 2mm walled 1" tube. You won't stand on them , but braking especially puts a lot of pressue on them and you need them to be strong enough for if you drop...

Re: Viagra Forward controls

Ta Prof, never heard of the front mount breaking, as that's the standard front support for the foot peg rails I would have thought that people would have been ranting about that if it was known to break. What I was thinking of was a modified (obviously) version of the original rails, weld cross tube...

Viagra Forward controls

OK, Virago, you know wot I mean. I've got some aftermarket forward controls on my XV1000, which do the job fine, but there are a number of things about them that I just don't get; For a start, as it's a frameless design at the bottom, you only have the original pair of mounting points for the peg mo...

Re: 3 degree offset headstem bearings for Yamaha?

Just remember if you use harley raked cups in another neck the distance they are apart must be the same. XV & XJ are the same distance apart too. 8) Unless I misread the meaning, I think the point was that we'd have to use the same distance between the cups as the HARLEY headstem does, this makes s...

Thanks guys. Damn bigotry, why can't we get offset bearing cups for the Yammies?
