929 Front End

I have some 929 Front End stuff for sale.

1 929 Forks, Upper&Lower Triple w/ stem, bearings, dust seals (all used)
Non WT Price $225
WT Price $200
NOTE: slight damage to adjustment screw on one leg, usable, not perfect

also

1 set 929 Forks (just the sticks)
Non WT Price $175
WT Price $150

Both sets of Fork Legs are stock and have been on the shelf.
Rebuild suggested for track use.

I have some more stuff but am waiting until the bike is sold before offering the complete front end setup for sale.

If serious, PM for deal.

Mostly a gift of time from Rob to complete the design of the offset triples, then a gift of time from XRmikey to machine the stuff. Then someone to help you w/ the stem pressing.

Then of course you need to complete the front end w/ lowers, rotors, wheel, spacers, fender, brakelines, etcetera, not to mention machining in the mount points for the H bracket for the lamp bucket and instrument cluster/ignition key.

Or a call to Bill at FullThrottle and some cash plus the rest of the front end.
Which actually I have but am holding out on listing for the moment.

It's all in various threads here in the Naked section.
OCool did a nice setup and mdtoney is currently pursuing the project.

Just keep in mind, these legs are shorter so you need the offset triples and not the triples that would work w/ SP1/SP2 sticks.

As long as all rights to the design remain exclusively with Thar Engineering, and the machine shop restricts their run to fill your order only and will abide by an NDA, then I'm fine with that.

In the meantime I will need specifics: upper and lower clamp diameters, desired trail, fork centers necessary for whatever wheel you intend to use, desired steering angle (though I'm toying with replacable stops bolted to the lower triple), ignition switch and instruments used (to press the lapels on the upper), any ancillary mounts required, handlebar mounting method, and whatever else crops up -- redesigning when still in the computer is not a problem whereas holding a beautiful useless part while redesigning is a disaster.

The 50.8mm offset will require a slight redesign of the lower triple either for incorporating a similar offset or adding some material to handle the greater load if left flat, and complicates load paths in the upper triple. Neither of these is a big problem.

There is one spec I'll need ASAP: the diameter of the lower end of the steering stem just above the weld to the triple. While it is comparatively simple to machine a stem from 6061, an extender welded to the stock stem to provide an engagement shoulder is a better solution for little if any weight penalty, so I'll have to bore for the stock stem. If anyone out there has an undamaged removed stem please measure it as accurately as possible (at least 6 times) and send all of the measurements to me. There's a 10% discount above the standard WT (with at least 200 posts) discount on a set of triples in it for ya.

That's about it for now -- gotta get back to the honeydo's and pressing the lapels on the adjustable lanesplitter handlebar design. Got a fab shop lined up already -- there are an incredible number of machine shops, welders, industrial supply businesses, electronics stores, and pretty much everything else I could possibly desire within 5 miles of me. Twisties as well, but further away than in Malibu. Ah well -- no place is perfect, but this comes damn close.

If it has already been done, it is safe to assume it is possible to do it.
On the other hand, if it has not been done never assume it is impossible to do it.
