    Hi from a OC Newbie :)

    Have been lurking here for a while picking ideas as to what I wanted to make.
    And thanks to XR Valdees picture of his setup, I just had to make one for myself.

    And now to try and post a pic.....

    The Left Pic is the Original Concept I had in Mind, and the Right Pic is what I had made for myself (stronger). And a sneak peak from the side showing you where its hiding.

    Designing was by far the toughest part.
    The first pic on the left was what I wanted to make if I had the means to do so. (CNC)
    What you see made here is the 3rd Version, and the one I made manually. It is my simplified version to test out dimensions and ergonomics.

    As requested a front view of it.
    And Yes! It bolts right into the existing holes pre drilled and tapped from factory.
    The under side of the adapter has a 3mm relief cutout for the raised boss on the triple.

    Thanks for all the Kudos!

    I thought you were bolting the dampers to the risers so couldn't figure out what this part was.

    Would like to hear some of your thoughts on the subject of DIY.

    What are my liabilities if I were to post my designed drawings here on OC?

    I really do not mind sharing what I have, since it was gained though this site anyways.

    If a Solid Disclaimer is attached with the drawing will it be enough to keep me out of trouble.
    Anyways.... I have been asked, and I said that I would consult the forum to see what I should do.

    Once the cats out of the bag there is no putting it back.

    Wondering whats the consensus is on this subject.
    Your thoughts and advise is always welcome.[​IMG]

    PS - I'm sure that some one else out there is making one for themselves . Lets see where you are up to and if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask.

    Here it is as promised. Drawings for those skilled enough to machine one up for themselves.
    Sorry I'm only offering the JPEG and not the CAD file. Easy enough for you to plug in these numbers anyways.

    Please be aware that my dimensions were taken off my 2004 Adventure and the factory castings may vary from bike to bike. You may have to tune yours to fit if needed.

    The one critical dimension would be the center distance of the triple clamp M6 mounting screws to the Steering Axel Axis. (30mm) This allows the Dampner center axis to match your steering pivot point. Measure to double check that these number match and you should be good to go.

    Good Luck With your Build.

    Don't worry your not at any risk for posting the drawing, at the company I work for, we release drawings for obsolete parts on occasion, so customers can get it made if they really want to, What I would do is copywrite your drawing, if you haven't done so already.

    Hi Motorfiets,

    Will take a look and see what I can do.
    I don't know if I can increase the resolution of the jpeg file saved.
    Not an expert with this SW program as you can tell by my skewed drawing views.
    CAD is just a handy 3D tool to sketch up ideas.

    Hi pdxthmper,

    No worries about copywrites because someone else came up with this design idea first.
    All I am doing is sharing what numbers I came up with.

    On a side note.

    If anyone that has a different model and year of Adventure, Dukes, SM, or even SE, find any unique dimension feel free to chime in. I would like to make this adapter fit as many 950/990 models as possible.
