Bar risers for a G650GS/Sertao
Have a look on page 1 for pricing
Got bike back today from the shop.
They struggled with a few things...
Top clamp (as suspected) wasn't off a YZ as promised and they needed to be made 1mm larger to fit the forks.
The SH bearings therefore didn't fit either so had to get new ones.
I think the Ratel spacer would have made this look a lot nicer.
When they fitted the axle kit, they found that the spacer bound on the wheel bearing so they fitted it "the wrong way".
Who knows...if it didn't work one way but it worked the other, does it matter?
The rear risers worked a treat.
The forks feel great. A whole lot firmer! No diving under braking.
Also, had the side stand modified to allow for the increased height.

Thanks for the pics @GooseNZ
Another shitty hub.
Its not binding up on the bearing, but on the hub face outside the bearing.
The easiest fix is to remove the lip on the spacer. blue
Using a lathe is the best way. But a file or careful work with a grinder/dremel will do the trick.
To limit corrosion. Wash in hot water with a little lemon flavour diswash detergent.
rinse in clean hot water
Give the spacer a good layer of wax polish when still warm.
Umm. Yes it would.
So...the reason for doing this mod to the spacer is to reduce/prevent stuff getting to the bearing?
If it doesn't make a difference I'll probably just leave it (at least until the next time I remove my front-wheel)...I doubt anybody will notice.

Spot on Squire
Great parts, Aquatic. Thanks again!
Perfect decal placement
So I have to make my own 'Ratel' fork protector decals?...guess I could get the vinyl cutter out and I have some 7 year caste vinyl, but I have no artwork..
What exactly are you looking for?
You need some one who can print and cut
I have experience in this area, if nobody has the artwork.
Remember waaayy back we talked about fork protector stickers for the YZ forks when the axle kit/caliper hanger was all you were doing? Well, I'm still waiting.
I used to service the "big machines" and I have a little A4 size Roland cutter (it's so old, it's "parallel" interface, not USB! But still works.) , and at work we have a A1 size Roland cutter, so I can print/cut. I think "EPS", "TIFF" or "DXF" is the best file format for the cutters. I have graphics package (Corel) I can size, change, edit. Just would need some 'artwork' to save me from drawing it all again.
TIFF - nope, that's a raster format; it needs to be vector.
If someone can post a clean image of the Ratel logo, I can vectorize it in a matter of minutes. That's with Aquatic's permission, of course.
I've been taking a closer look at the design of the Ratel footpegs brackets while also considering a fix for the side-stand lean angle. Has anyone tried or considered using something like this in conjunction with the footpeg upgrade???
My current idea is similar. I may just modify it a little
I have no problem with the stock lean angle, actually prefer the stability over a more upright angle. It is just the slop from wear on the pin that increases it that bothers me. What angle would you go with, and would there be any option on that?
One thing to consider is he impact of the side stand's mount and retracted positions impact on ground clearance and venerability during off road excursions.
I have suffered sever impact damage to my skid plate and back half of the stock stand over the years. I ripped off the spring studs twice. One benefit of the OEM very low-angle swing-out of the stand is that the bracket is up and out of harms way to some extent since it come s out sideways rather than down.
This is a concern for me when riding in Colorado / Utah type trails. Big rocks are nasty and stop you cold if they hit something hanging down like that...Skid plates need to SKID or slide over obstacles.
I look forward to Aquatic's solution...as always.
What is the shipping cost to Perth for a rear rack in Silver please Aquatic?
Please email me - firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi Craig, email didnt work.
