    Had an upcoming tire change, and wanted a way to hold the bead down inside the rim on some particularly stiff tires. Heard of these bead buddy things, and decided to give them a try. I did this out of solid ABS - though I ran out of white before I finished it.

    Wasn't til I had the wheel off my bike and on the tire changing stand that I realized that the bead buddy needed spokes to hook to. My tubless wheels do not have spokes! :fpalm

    At least I'll be ready for my next dirtbike tire change.

    I've got a bag full of Keihen carb jets, and finally decided to organize them. Really tough to see the sizes of them and they are all not stamped in the same place.

    So, this first box is just for the ones that fit my KTM 250: IMG_1721.JPG IMG_1723.JPG

    The numbers didn't turn out great. I'll print them bigger for the next one - but at least they're legible without a magnifying glass.

    Going to do another one for my 250 TXT jets.

    That's awesome. Put some white paint on the numbers and wipe off the excess. Easier to read.

    Ok, I didn't print these but a stand-up guy I met on anther site let me ship him my broken carb cross-over fuel tube from an XR350R to him.

    He sketched them and printed with Kevlar reinforced ABS (I think)

    Originals

    Any Convoy or Death Proof fans? I dusted off my printer after a year of sitting because I FINALLY found a model of this. Printed one at a low infill and it worked great. Now I need to find the "time" to make a higher density one and smooth/paint it.

    I have a project coming up to mount a Pacifico Shadow fairing on my Vulcan VN1600 Classic. Part of the mods includes replacing the 4" round turn signals with 4" LED spotlights. Along with that I have an idea to update the look with a bezel over the front of the lights and onto the top side of the fairing face. Can this be scanned with a smart phone 3D app and then 3D printed?

    Short answer : No. A reliable smart phone 3D scanner is not a viable option IMHO.

    Longer answer: 3D scanning and printing prototypes is not a cheap option. Outsourcing any sort of 3D printing for a finished product is not cheap/easy either.

    Alternative answer: Buy a low cost (DIY) 3D printer, learn to use it, and by trial and error make what you want. That's how I learned. I am not into scanning stuff for print, kinda takes the fun out of the "custom" part of it. You would be surprised how easy some of this stuff is to design. Try tinkercad, it's an online 3D modeling application which has all the tools needed to make some basic/elaborate stuff. If you can make it with that, for example, then the printing side should be easy.

    Wife's new place I guess has quite the 3D printing shop. Guy said whatever she would like done they can do. Trying to come up with idea for the bike, but can't really think of anything.

    Needed a place to mount my auxiliary fuse panel on my sxs. The holes for the fuse panel were printed with 4mm threads so I didn't have bolts protruding.

    Posted same pics over in the "Heat Troller" thread, not sure if many folks get over here. Anyhow, this is version 3 of my Heat Troller mount. Printed with Onyx, as that's the only material other than carbon fiber our printer will print. Been holding up great.

    That is SICK! I just left my heat troller remote at home last weekend cause I didn't have a good place to put it on the 701 and figure 30% was good enough. You should offer these up for sale......
