I see custom paint, aftermarket muffs (Bassani ?), and a store bought lugage rack. Looks sweet !, but this section is more for homemade parts, frame modification, etc, as anyone can "buy and bolt"...Let me know what you guys think .
idk...... others should / may be more familiar with your situation.....Trust me guys, I'd like to do more, but so far I don't see that I have the room. The control panel is in the way to put a plate between the lower clamps and the risers.
That's kind of true; I've already bought them so I want to use them. Kind of a waste otherwise.EDIT: Dave, I believe you are trying too hard to make your new Bars set-up work on your bike !
But there's no room for that, unless I figure out some way to shift the setup rearward about half what it is now...Shear isn't the problem. Redundancy is. I believe Wolf mentioned a plate; perhaps 1/8" flat stock with three clearance holes each. At least that way you could tie the other mounting holes into it.
Grind the fwd section of your riser base to clear the key better, then you can countersink a nut in there. I still think that modifying the lower riser as in my budget pseudo photoshop drawing would be better. That way your fwd end of it would remain the same as now, and you'd add support by tying into the rear bolt hole. Remember, that single bolt setup you have will cause the main bolt to be stressed just there...as in rocking back and forth, a pivot point so to speak. But if you extended the lower riser to tie into the rear bolt, all stress would transfer to the riser itself.There's no room to put a plate there and have a bolt long enough to go thru the forward hole and have a nut on the underside.
The goal is to be able to use the Daytona bend bars that I bought and have all the controls have clearance around the tank. Putting the new bars in the clamp had the control cables hitting the tank.I have to ask, what is your ultimate goal with your riser setup? Just to have slightly taller bars? Have them slightly more forward? Wanting a new triple tree after the current one snaps? I am certain you can find a bar which closely resembles what you want. Please, for the sake of us all, go back to stock until you figure something else out!
