Just send me a PM with an e-mail address and I will put you on the list.
Some pictures of the triples in my project:
Interesting choice here, regarding the extension and shock mount. I'm guessing that the owner already had a paralever shock and converted to mono?
After two broken driveshafts (one stock and one re-buildable one) ruining two big trips :dog
he wanted something that would last.......... So he had an extended mono swingarm put in.
The paralever shock had to be shortened and the settings had to be changed.
Which handlebar clamps are these?
They are custom made.
Here's a picture of a GS with a DRZ fork.
(And yes, a bird shat on my seat. Flying bastards.)
it seems, is easy to fit in a beemer. I hope mine will fit as well
Fits on mine rather well. I'm in year 3 of these on ... and I'm smitten.
less than 3 years on mine, but also smitten
that window is so cool
Ras. your G/S looks brutal, it looks like a real dirt road beast.
Suzuki triples or Prutser?
Prutser by the looks of it.
Prutser Triples with plenty of steering lock
Animal authentic !!! Nice HPN tank.
Which rear shock do you have?
I notice that the front axle is not stock DRZ.
thanks for the compliments guys
rear shock is a Hyperpro onto an extended monolever.
The suspension on this bike is supaplush, i've said it here before - in the dirt its like riding a magic carpet
For people who would like to make their own caliper bracket to mount a BMW F650 caliper onto a DRZ fork using a 320mm rotor we made a drawing that you can print out and copy.
This picture shows a way you can mount the caliper using a plate bolted on the outside of the fork and using spacers to get the right off-set for the caliper.
For the stock DRZ triples the spacers between the plate and the caliper need to be Do 22mm Di 10mm Lo 27,5mm
For the custom triples the spacers need to be 5mm longer = 32,5mm
For people that would like to use a KTM hub and the custom triples there is a different drawing. Because the KTM hub is narrower this bracket will fit between the fork and the rotor. Please note that the 10mm bolts which hold the caliper need to be countersunk.
The thickness of the plate for the KTM hub should be 10mm but someone who made one for his bike needed an 8mm thick plate. so there must be a difference in KTM hubs (or someone doesn't have his wheel centered )
Great job !!!
Which type of aluminium do you think is enough? 5083-86, 6061,7075?
