So I decided to make one that could be used without having to remove the exhaust.
First step was to lift the bike on an invisible stand to get dimensions. This was done by holding the bike upright with load straps and an upside down workstand.
The bike was lifted to "working height" with another mega load strap. I'm glad the garage beam took the weight!
With the required height measurements it was off to do some working drawings (well, sketches really).
Next I gathered some materials and tools.
And did some cutting and made some sparks.
And made some more sparks.
Then some drilling was required.
With all of the parts de-burred and cleaned, it was time to do a test assembly.
Not a bad result for a prototype. Next weekend it's off to my neighbour for welding and then another neighbour for professional painting.
To be continued.................
