PLEASE keep / save the tooling just in case.
ps: can’t see your pics.
While trying to sell an inmate a modified telelever and fork bridge, I noted that the connectors that allow the misalignment for BMW telelever forks are now selling for 97.77 each on Max's fiche
Number 2 on the parts list http://www.maxbmwmotorcycles.com/fiche/DiagramsMain.aspx?vid=51558&rnd=07242017
Dave, are you going to start making and selling these now ?
Dave, put me down for a couple sets off your first production run.
Well not exactly I have a machinist, mechanic welder buddy they are not as finished as before but cheaper he has a jig he mad for the fork bridge and does that sort of work all the time, they are a little rougher than the first efforts.
The same pair cleaned up a bit and powder coated.
I'm just chasing parts the machinist does them I clean them up and took them to a powder coater, this is more public service than profit motive we've sold 3or4 now.
Not as nice as the earlier ones.
I'm staying with my position, changing steering axis is a better idea than raking the forks.
To the r1200 users Claudes trail reducer only moves the ball joint 3/4" and there plenty of meat in the telelever to move the mounting point that much !
Stock mounting point
We machined a push in plug and welded the end and machined a new point.
I would be glad to send anyone interested the machinist number and email he's in his 50's farmboy motorcycle mechanic tool maker German Published author
I was a real stick-in-the-mud and didn't think I needed to reduce the trail. After wrestling my heavy GS rig around for way too long. I finally had Big Dave shorten my a-arm and I modified the bridge(1100) to match. I couldn't be happier with the steering now. With about 800 miles on my fresh RT top end and cams, the rig pulls like a demon.
The mechanic, machinist guy who built the last Dedome mods !
After insisting I wasn't going to do this but selling the 3 I had, including the one I wanted to keep myself Randy is building me 3 more a couple unfinished.
Out of curiosity, would front A arm from an R1200C work or is there too much difference?
More than one way to do it... food for thought. And look, ma. There'e no para'.
Time for a little self promo !
I have 3 of these rough finished if anyone is planning a 1150gs hack project heres affordable trail reduction, I had 3 in stock and people bought them who are must be lurkers they found me. Good deal like this 350, after I grind them and get them powder coated 550, cheaper and the wheelbase remains stock and your front end doesn't sag. So be it !
If anyones considering a BMW r1150gs tug I have several Dedome style trail reducers ready, I plan on keeping one of these for my last GS.
Available in any color you want as long as it's satin black.
These are the econo finish not allot of fill and grind lots of pits in telelevers, less expensive.
Oh thank you Bob ! Hydrology and English what an amazing man !
