    Hey RYE! Got Bored...

    Remember the wheel we drew up on my Cad/Cam?
    Well, I got bored and did a solid Model of it...

    Hey RYE! Got Bored...

    What I need are the stock rear sets.

    Then I can use the Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM), to
    Get the numbers I need.
    I could talk to the Boss, and see if I can machine a couple out.
    They would be made of either 6061 or 7075 aluminum.
    7075 being the stronger of the 2.
    Only thing is we would have to pay for the stock used.
    Would be in the range of maybe 50 bucks a set, including harware.

    This all depends on if I can get an open machine to do the work, and if they are open when I can do it. Right now, we are on an 8 hour shift, and getting in there on like a Saturday is kinda slim.
    But you never know!

    A set of those perdy yeller wheels would look much better on a Duc. than a TLR


    Any chance of getting a copy of that cad program?

    Okay. First off, I'll take TWO sets of those wheels in white...

    Secondly, I've got some mangled stock mounts from the Gixxer 600 I'm converting. I'll get 'em off and send 'em to ya if you're serious about this. If it happens, I'll take two sets of those also!

    Not that I have the slightest idea of what to do with any of the eqiupment you'd be using, Mark. But if ya need a hand with anything (if this happens), lemme know. I'll be there no matter what!

    Here's a quick screw around on the rear set...I just pulled on out of the air.
    As for a copy, that's a NO GO!
    It has a security device, and will only work if you got one..
    Cost? around 8 grand. I take the security chip home with me from work.

    Here ya Go Jay!

    One copy in white!
    I don't know if you guys realize this...But to build just one set would cost well over a couple grand.
    I would have to source out the material, have the blanks made, then do the machining in house.
    I had already talked to the Boss about doing wheels, but the cost of liabilty insurance would be thru the roof!

    I was thinking Advanced Precision Engineering dba NESR Racing Components?

    Still, in order to make it look sweet for the owner of the shop, we would have to market the parts, and charge like 350 bucks a set.
    So we would have to build prototypes....and have you guys test them...

    That sounds great... Even if we could sell them 50-75 bucks cheaper that everyone else I think we could sell a bunch of these.... What do we need to get started???

    We will need the stock set including pedals, and push rods.
    should look at moving the peg position 1" up and back.

    Will need flat stock aluminum, for the frame of the sets.
    2 different diameters of aluminum round stock, (foot pegs, and toe tabs).. will be machined in a Lathe...not my department, but will work something out.

    I will need to build Fixturing for the shift/brake levers, and I'll need to build fixturing for the frame part too.
    We will need to source out for some bushings for brake/shift lever. Some wave washers, and assorted screws.

    Before this happens, we have to reverse engineer the stock parts, have me draw it all up on the CAD/CAM, make prints of the components, program the machines to machine them, and then find the time to do it. If we can market the parts, they will be considered a company run part, and would be manufactured during the regular day. If not, it means me kissing some ass to get it done. Gotta remember, we are using a $375,000 machine to make these parts... I see about 72 hours of work, before we have something that we can put our hands on....

    Hey RYE! Got Bored...

    I have almost finished putting together a package to send to woodcraft regarding sponsorship and discounts on woodcraft clipons/rearsets/stands/tirewarmers. My question is should I finish this and send it off. I basically said in my telephone conversation with them that we would be buying most of our parts needed to convert the bikes from them. If this isn't the case then I need to amend my letter. What's the consensus of opinion. I appreciate Mark's work on this with the rearsets but I think that we should go the safe route for now and just get the parts from Woodcraft and work on our own stuff later on when our bikes are alreadyt prepped for the year. I have to get the package to Woodcraft by year end so I need everybody's opinion right now so I know what to tell them. I am buying front and rear stands, clipons and rearsets from them. Gerard, Jay and Gary, what will you need? Answers asap please.

    Degsy,
    Since you are working on a package deal, by all means go that route.

    It would take time for me to go thru R&D, never mind trying to set up the time to do the machine work.
    It would be great if you didn't have this kind of package, but being a person that used to campaign a racing effort, you are better off going with Woodcraft at the time being....

    This is not to say, that if I have the chance to develop hardware for the sport, that I may continue with the effort.

    The industry I'm in is very unstable at the moment, and being able to diversify to different products, is good thing for the business...Considering we have a quality assurance rating, (AS 9100, and ISO 9002, that allows us to produce everything from aircraft to spaceflight packages. (AS9100 is the international aerospace quality standard that everyone strives for..)
    We also have state of the art Multi Axis CNC machines with the latest technology on board. The latest aquisitons (machines), are less than a year old, and have the capability to produce parts in half the time, but with a cost of better than a million dollars. This puts the company in a position to get work that other shops can't, and we can get it from world wide sources, not just limited to the states.
